Men’s Hockey

Dartmouth 5, Princeton 0

Princeton, n.j. — A pair of first-period goals from Alex Jasiek and a 25-save shutout from Adrian Clark propelled Dartmouth over ECAC champion Princeton.

“Tonight, we played 60 minutes,” Big Green coach Bob Gaudet said in a news release. “We were consistent all night from our goalie out.

“I’m happy for Adrian (Clark) to bounce back the way he did tonight,” Gaudet added. “He saw pucks really well all night and his play in the early minutes kept us in it and them off the scoreboard before leading to our first goal.”

Jasiek scored the first and third Big Green (6-8-2, 5-3-1 ECAC) goals of the night, sandwiched around the team-leading eighth from freshman and New Jersey native Drew O’Connor as the visitors took a 3-0 lead into the first intermission.

Kevan Kilistoff and Carl Hesler built the lead to five through two with their second and fourth goals of the season, respectively.

No pucks found the net in the third period for either side as Clark capped off his third career shutout and second of the season with a flurry of saves on the penalty kill in the final minutes.

The Tigers (6-11-2, 4-7-1 ECAC) used three goalies in the game, with starter Ryan Ferland saddled with the loss after just 11:49 of play and allowing three goals on seven shots. Austin Shaw came in for the next 20:55, but was pulled after allowing the Hesler goal. Jay Forget was the home team’s top netminder on this night, stopping all 14 shots he faced in the first 27:16 of action seen in his Princeton debut.

The Dartmouth power play was a perfect 2-for-2 on its opportunities, while the penalty kill held the Tigers’ fifth-ranked power play in the nation to 0-for-2.

The Big Green is back on the road next weekend at Colgate and Cornell.
