A big first period, coupled with a timely penalty kill, enabled Union to start the 2013 portion of the ECAC Hockey schedule on the winning side.

Kyle Bodie, Max Novak and Daniel Carr scored first-period goals, and the 16th-ranked Dutchmen held on for a 3-2 victory over Princeton on Friday at Hobey Baker Rink.

The Dutchmen (4-2-3 ECACH, 10-6-4 overall) came into the game in a 1-4-3 funk, and things didn’t start well when Will MacDonald gave the Tigers (4-4-3, 5-8-4) a 1-0 lead 25 seconds into the first period.

But the Dutchmen didn’t panic. They pounded Princeton goalie Sean Bonar with 23 shots in the first, and 45 for the game.

“To be quite honest, in the past there would have been [panic],” Union coach Rick Bennett said. “But this was a maturity game. I thought Mat Bodie, Kyle Bodie and Greg Coburn did an excellent job of slowing everything down on the bench. It was a huge reason why we took off.”

At 9:29, Bodie scored off a Wayne Simpson pass during the Dutchmen’s second two-man advantage of the period. The assist gave Simpson 99 career points.

Union took the lead on a goal that took nearly 10 minutes to decide if it was legal. Carr and Novak batted at puck in the air. It looked like Carr had punched the puck into the net. But the video review showed a different story, and that gave Union a 2-1 advantage.

“It was a cluster in front of the net,” Carr said. “Max batted it out of the air. It hit the shaft of my stick, and Max put it in.”

Carr scored on a wraparound with 1:52 left in the first. Tyler Maugeri scored for the Tigers in the second.

The Dutchmen were put in a difficult spot with 5:02 left in the game when Josh Jooris was called for a double minor — hooking and interference. But the country’s fifth-ranked penalty kill shut down the Tigers.

Union travels to league-leading Quinnipiac tonight at 7.
