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.
Stony Brook fell behind Rhode Island 3-2 in the second period of Saturday afternoon’s game and, despite many opportunities to tie the game, never climbed back. This weekend’s split makes Stony Brook’s 2017-18 regular season record 21-7-4.
