  • Penn State is up 1-0 at Syracuse on freshman Maeve Connolly's first collegiate goal. The stats aren't working, but there were no penalties and I think Penn State leads the shots on goal by 10-6. Just like last weekend, it's back and forth hustle from both teams for that whole period.

    EDIT: Now it's Syracuse up on Penn State shots on goal 11-10, according to the on-screen graphic.

    • Well, that period was all Syracuse, who now leads Penn State 3-1. Penn State is playing their "offense first" game, but getting caught too far out of their defensive zone, and Syracuse is getting in behind the defense in a hurry.

      • Penn State ties it up 3-3, and now they go to another 3-on-3 OT with Syracuse.

        • Freshman forward Kiara Zanon breaks in and scores the game winner in 3-on-3 OT for the Penn State 4-3 win.

          • Eastwood on the play by play. She is a natural. Not the game I expected and what a roller coaster. First goal to get you back in is always the toughest Gough tonight, Byrnes the game before that. Nice goal by Zanon.

              I knew you'd like Eastwood calling the game Pretty cool that she was doing it from home in Toronto - way to go, Syracuse techie people.

                Very cool!

                • Eastwood is right up there with the guy from Boston Univ. She was prepared and knew all the girls and Kampersal's coaching record at PSU and Princeton and it was obvious that she liked providing color commentary and I'm convinced she had read this column by some of her comments. PSU should sign her up for home games.

                    • Thanks for sharing the link. Received various error messages when attempting to stream the game. Went directly to cuse.com also in an attempt to watch. Odd that it worked just fine for Friday's game.

                      • The video feed is working now - took them a while.

                        Penn State and Syracuse are tied 1-1 after the first period. No real surprises here...it's like watching every other game against Syracuse, full of energy both ways. Should be another good one.

                        • Penn State and Syracuse are tied 2-2 after two periods. Syracuse had the better chances in that period, but both teams are playing full speed. Syracuse has four penalties to Penn State's one. Syracuse leads the shots on goal 31-23.

                          • Syracuse takes the win 4-2 with a final empty netter to ice the game. Syracuse led the shots on goal 46-36, and just seemed quicker getting the puck onto the Penn State net. Penn State did have a lot of chances of their own, too...but on defense they just didn't do a very good job of boxing Syracuse out and instead let them crowd the net too much. Kiara Zanon had two shorthanded breakaways, but couldn't get one past the Syracuse goalie, who had a great game. All in all, the entire four-game series was a good one, and Penn State is bringing a whole new (and better) look to this program.

                            • Good News: The scoring is up.
                              Bad News: The scoring is up for other teams.
                              Good News: The team can win a game 4-3 this year.
                              Bad News: The team will struggle to win games 1-0.
                              The PP is atrocious. The 5-3 non conversion highlights just how bad the PP is.
                              The Penalties seem to be at a level that is manageable. That is a positive.
                              Penn State has its first series win ever against one of the big three:. Syracuse, Mercyhurst and Robert Morris. That's a big step for the program.
                              With the lack of games it is really hard to judge how good Syracuse is and the same for Penn State. Considering any hockey was a question this year, the real win may be just getting in games in this trying environment.

                                A couple of points from this weekend.
                                1. Team defense as whole was a whole lot looser this weekend then the first two. Heminger and Adolphsson were not noticable like they were the first four games.
                                2. Freshmen are legit. I think that as they learn that you just can't shoot on goalies at this level you need to make moves. Zanon's shorthanded break away is a great example.
                                3. The back end needs to be more physical in front of their own net. Syracuse had too many second chances in tight.
                                4. Josie needs to have better rebound control. She is going to learn that unlike high school teams are going to try to execute a specific game plan. It was obvious yesterday shoot low and crash the net. On the third goal she stopped two shots before the third one went in. There was no boxing out.
                                5. Young teams need more practice. Two days of practice is not enough time with young teams to fully embed a game plan you could tell this weekend everyone was cheating toward offense, (To many odd man rushes.)
                                6. Time to go home recharge and get away from campus these kids have been under an unbelievable amount of stress some family time will be good.
                                7. A great start to the year considering the roster has been totally overhauled.
                                8. More Positives than negatives. Very bright future. (which could becoming to fruition sooner than expected.
