NCAA Game Night: 11-16-12
No. 17 Harvard Crimson 4 @ No. 10 Cornell Big Red 1
F Brian Hart, HAR: Did not play
Season totals: 5 GP, 1-2-3, +4, 6 PIM
D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM
Brian Hart was not in the lineup for Harvard’s win over Cornell on the NBC Sports Network. Gotovets had an undeserved minus when a teammate failed to challenge a shot that ended up in the Big Red’s goal. Gotovets played a smooth game all night, showing good jump with the puck and quick skating. He had his pocket picked early in the game, but he recovered to steal the puck back as the Crimson player was about to shoot.
Michigan State Spartans 2 @ No. 4 Miami RedHawks 2 (OT)
F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: Did not play
Season totals: 9 GP, 1-3-4, -2, 4 PIM
Jimmy Mullin was out of the lineup as the RedHawks tied Sparty, 2-2. Miami won the shootout, 2-0, thought the game will go down as a tie. The game-tying goal was scored by Jake Chelios, son of former Blackhawk and Red Wing, Chris Chelios.
Quinnipiac Bobcats 5 @ Clarkson Golden Knights 2
F Matthew Peca, QU: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 10 GP, 3-1-4, E, 4 PIM
Matthew Peca (pictured) scored his third goal of the year to help the Bobcats to a road win over Clarkson. Peca had 39 points in 39 games last year as a freshman, but has found points harder to come by this season.
Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs 4 @ No. 6 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 4 (OT)
F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 9 GP, 1-3-4, -4, 2 PIM
Each team had two leads on Friday in a game that ended in a 4-4 tie.
Wisconsin Badgers 2 @ No. 3 Minnesota Golden Gophers 2 (OT)
G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Tie, 22 saves on 24 shots
Season totals (pregame): 7 GP, 5-1-1, 1.58 GAA, .924 sv%, 2 SO
Adam Wilcox got his fifth-consecutive start for the Gophers and earned his second straight tie. Minnesota outshot Bucky, 43-24.
No. 9 Western Michigan Broncos 1 @ Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 6
D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
Season totals: 10 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 12 PIM
Some of the WMU players were joking on Twitter this week about taking time to fish while in Alaska. Considering the Broncos only put up 17 shots (7 through 2 periods) to Alaska's 32, they might as well have been "gone fishing." The Nanooks took it to the ninth-ranked team in the country, defeating them 6-1.
