Kasdorf chalks up first shutout for Engineers, 3-0

Kasdorf chalks up first shutout for Engineers, 3-0

Freshman Jason Kasdorf recorded his first shutout of the season Friday night as Rens­selaer Polytech

Freshman Jason Kasdorf recorded his first shutout of the season Friday night as Rens­selaer Polytechnic institute blanked reeling Harvard, 3-0, in an ECAC game at Houston Field House.

Kasdorf, a draft pick of the Winnipeg Jets, only had to make 11 saves as the Engineers (9-11-5, 4-6-3 ECAC) kept the Crimson completely bottled up. Harvard (5-14-1, 3-12-0) is in last place in the league and has lost seven straight games.

The victory was the third in a row at Houston Field House for the Engineers, and Kasdorf has been in goal in all three, giving up just three goals in victories over Colgate, Cornell and Harvard. His 1.58 goals-against average puts him third in the country in that category.

Freshman center Mark Miller broke out of his scoring slump and banged home a pair of goals, including the game winner in the first period, for the engineers. Miller hadn’t scored a goal since a Dec. 7 game against Yale, and had just one assist in his last 12 games until Friday night.

Freshman Mike Zalewski had the other goal for RPI, his fourth of the season.

The Engineers will be home again tonight, hosting Dartmouth in the annual Big Red Freakout game at 7. RPI is 0-5-1 in its last six Freakout contests.
