Men’s hockey sweeps Brown
Bobcats become just second team in ECAC Hockey history to shut out opponent in a series
On Tuesday Quinnipiac head coach Rand Pecknold decided that he would use Dan Clarke and Eric Hartzell in back-to-back games in its first round series against Brown.
So on Friday after Clarke’s 22 save shutout performance, the question was could Hartzell duplicate that performance.
Hartzell prevailed, making 24 saves in a 4-0 shutout, helping Quinnipiac advance to the ECAC quarterfinals and also making them just the second ECAC Hockey team to shutout its opponent in a series.
“We trust both of them and they played great this weekend,” Pecknold said.
Zach Hansen gathered two points with a goal and an assist, while Zach Currie, Jeremy Langlois, and Ben Arnt all scored for the Bobcats
After a scoreless first period, the Bobcats struck in the first minute of the second, as Curries scored a power-play goal at 19:25 in the period.
Just 1:55 later Jeremy Langlois scored and the Bobcats were up 2-0 and never looked back.
Hansen and Arnt added two more insurance goals in the third, but the final period of play featured a lot of physicality and emotion as both teams combined for seven penalties in the third period, 14 in the game.
The Bobcats opponent for the quarterfinals is still to be determined.
