Big-time goaltending helped the No. 22 Stony Brook club hockey team salvage its weekend after a disappointing start. The Seawolves (10-5-0, 7-2-0 ESCHL) played back-to-back one game series this past weekend and split them with a win and a loss.
The Seawolves split a home-and-home series with the New York University Violets over the weekend as they tried to wipe the Liberty series from memory. Stony Brook blew the Violets out of their own building on Friday with a dominant 11-2 win before losing 3-1 on Saturday at home.

Pivotal performances from forward Greg Barnych, defenseman Spencer Boris and goalie Matvei Kazakov helped lead the Stony Brook club hockey team to its second consecutive series sweep to open up the season.
