Leonard’s first goal of year gives Engineers 2-2 draw

Defenseman Curtis Leonard scored his first goal of the season with 3:51 to play Friday night as Rens

Defenseman Curtis Leonard scored his first goal of the season with 3:51 to play Friday night as Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute battled Princeton to a 2-2 tie in the ECAC Hockey game at Houston Field House.

The point was the first of the season in the league for the Engineers (3-5-3, 0-4-1 ECAC), but also gave RPI a 3-1-2 record at home.

Princeton (3-4-2, 2-1-2 ECAC) took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Mike Sado at 5:36 of the first period, but the Engineers pulled even when Mike Tinordi scored his first goal of the year at 2:20 of the second. Sophomore Zach Schroeder started the play when he knocked a Tigers defenseman off the puck. Senior CJ Lee picked up the loose puck and fed Tinordi, who snapped a wrist shot past Tigers goalie Mike Condon..

Sdao set up junior Andrew Calof for Princeton’s go-ahead goal at 9:49 of the third period. Sdao crossed the blue line and fired a shot that made its way through traffic to the far pipe, and Calof stuffed it in between RPI goalie Jason Kasdorf and the right pipe.

But Leonard answered, beating Condon through the pads, with Jacob Laliberte and Nick Bailen getting assists on the game-tying goal.

Condon finished with a season-high 37 saves for the Tigers.

The Engineers will be back home tonight, hosting Quinnipiac at 7.
