Penn State Hockey: Nittany Lions Fall To Buckeyes 5-1

by on February 01, 2014 8:00 AM

Penn State's men's hockey team came up short Friday night falling 5-1 to Ohio State on the road.

That means the Nittany Lions are still looking for that elusive first conference win of the season.

Ohio State scored once in the opening 20 minutes, capitalizing on a rebound chance early in the game. The Nittany Lions failed to respond and the Buckeyes would score three straight in the middle stanza before Penn State got on the board thanks to freshman David Goodwin. Goodwin's score was his fifth goal of the year.

Despite losing, Penn State held a 47-32 shots advantage, outshooting its opponent for the fourth time in five games. The Nittany Lions went 1-for-3 on the power play, while the Buckeyes finished 1-for-5 with the man advantage -- despite being the conference's top power play unit. Eamon McAdam let in four goals on the night while stopping nearly 30 additional shots.

Here's how it happened:

Ohio State scored with 10:30 remaining in the first period thanks to a Justin DaSilva’s point shot that bounced to Buckeye Tanner Fritz who passed to Max McCormick outside the crease for the goal.

In the second period, Ohio State netted three scores, including two strikes in a 26-second span. Ohio State would score again on a power play. 


In the third period, Goodwin cut the Ohio State lead to 4-1 with 16:05 left in the frame on the man advantage.

The Buckeyes added their fifth goal at 8:29. After both teams picked up minors, the Nittany Lions pulled McAdam to have a 5-on-4 advantage. With the goaltender pulled, a Penn State pass jumped behind the defense and slid into the Nittany Lion defensive zone, where Dzingel knocked the puck into the open net.

The Nittany Lions and Buckeyes will finish the weekend series Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will air live on ESPNews.
