It was a good night to be a goalie at Messa Rink.
Union’s Corey Milan and Dartmouth’s Mike Devine put on a show Saturday. Milan made 32 saves, while Devine stopped 40 shots as the Dutchmen and Big Green played to a 0-0 ECAC Hockey tie at Messa Rink.
It’s the first scoreless tie for Union since Feb. 26, 2005, against Princeton. It was the Dutchmen’s third scoreless tie in their 17-year NCAA Division I history. The other one was at Army on Nov. 4, 1995.
The tie helped the Dutchmen (7-5-4 ECACH, 12-10-5 overall) gain ground on fourth-place Cornell for the last ECACH tournament first-round bye berth. Union is now one point behind Cornell, which dropped a 4-2 decision to St. Lawrence. Union plays at Cornell on Friday.
