Senior Matt Cook scored a power-play goal at 10:29 of the third period to give Union a 3-2 victory over fifth-ranked Princeton Friday night in an ECAC Hockey game at Hobey Baker Rink.

Junior Mario Valery-Trabucco and sophomore Stephane Boileau also scored goals, and Corey Milan made 29 saves as the Dutchmen improved to 3-4-0 in the league and 10-8-1 overall.

“I thought we battled through some adversity, but you have to win on the road,” said Union coach Nate Leaman, back behind the bench

after a stint with the U.S. junior team at the World Junior Champ­ionships. “It’s a game of momentum, and we were able to grab it in the third.”

The Tigers (8-3-0, 13-4-0) twice had one-goal leads, first on a goal by Kevin Lohry, and then on a power-play goal by Dan Barlett late in the second period, but each time, the Dutchmen battled back.

Valery-Trabucco matched Lohry’s goal, picking the upper-left corner with a wrist shot at 13:06 of the second period to tie the game at 1-1.

After Union was called for too many men on the ice, Bartlett’s power-play goal put the Tigers back on top at 16:19 of the second. But Boileau finished off a two-on-none break with Adam Presizniuk to knot the score early in the third period and set the stage for Cook’s game-winner, his fourth goal of the season.

“I was in a little bit of a scoring slump and I was feeling a little guilty, kind of feeling like I was letting my teammates down a little bit,” said Cook.

Union will take on Quinnipiac at 7 tonight in Hamden, Conn.

Leaman had high praise for his goalie after the game.

“Corey was a rock, and he has to be,” said Leaman. “He is really the key to our team.”
