ECAC Night 1

Here is a brief recap from the first night of the ECAC Playoffs.

SLU 5 - Colgate 2
The Saints took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission then used a 3 goal second period to bury the Raiders. Colgate's goaltender Mark Dekanich could not find his rhythm all night and was pulled in the third period. SLU defenseman Zach Miskovic had a pair of goals.

Cornell 3 - Dartmouth 2
The Big Red Raymond Swada's second goal of the night was the game winner as the Big Red wore down the Big Green. Cornell outshot Dartmouth 14-5 in the third period. Ben Scrivens made 23 saves.

Quinnipiac 7 - Brown 6 OT
In the wackiest game of the night Brown took a 1-0 lead into the locker room after the first period. Quinnipiac scored 5 goals in 4:53 of the second period to seeming lock up the game. Brown fought back to cut the lead to 5-3 at the 17:49 mark of the period, but the Bobcats went to the break up 6-3. Ben Nelson and Brian Leitch both had 2 goals after two periods. Brown found something extra in the last half of the third and cut the lead to 6-5 with 4:44 left in the 3rd. Jeff Prough tied the game at 6 with 5 seconds left in the period. Despite the furious comeback the Brown Bears could not contain David Marshall just past halfway into the first over time. Quinnipiac survived a wild one 7-6.

Yale 3 - RPI 2 3OT
Freshman Broc Little's ninth goal of the season was the game winner at the 105:40 mark of the game to lift Yale over RPI 3-2. Yale took a two nothing lead on a delayed powerplay goal and a powerplay goal in the first period, but RPI stormed back to tie the contest at 2 after the first 20 minutes. After that, there was no scoring for the next 85 minutes as Alec Richards and Mathias Lange put on a clinic. For the game Lange made 53 saves to Richards 27.

If all the winners from tonight win tomorrow the second round will shape up like this:
#9 SLU @ #1 Clarkson
#7 Yale @ #2 Princeton
#6 Quinnipiac @ #3 Harvard
#5 Cornell @ #4 Union
