Hockey: Carr breaks record, but Dutchmen lose, 2-1

Hockey: Carr breaks record, but Dutchmen lose, 2-1

Playing without three players and its head coach because of suspensions wasn’t a problem for fourth-

CANTON — Playing without three players and its head coach because of suspensions wasn’t a problem for fourth-ranked Union on Friday against St. Lawrence.

Having many of the skaters who dressed for the game not playing like they should was the bigger issue, and it ruined a special night for Dutchmen senior forward Daniel Carr.

Freshman defenseman Mike Graham scored his first collegiate goal midway through the third period to snap a tie and give the Saints a 2-1 ECAC Hockey upset of the Dutchmen at Appleton Arena.

Union (10-3 ECACH, 16-6-3 overall) played without coach Rick Bennett, defenseman Mat Bodie, center Eli Lichtenwald and left winger Daniel Ciam­pini after they were suspended for their roles in last Saturday’s Mayor’s Cup postgame brawl with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Lichtenwald and Ciampini are eligible to return tonight against Clarkson. Bodie has one more game to serve, while Bennett is out for three more.

Carr scored the only goal for the Dutchmen 1:01 into the third period that tied the score, 1-1. That gave him 132 career points to surpass Adam Presizniuk as the Dutchmen’s all-time Division I scoring leader.

But Carr wasn’t in a celebratory move. And he didn’t blame the suspensions for the team’s play. Union was outshot, 35-22, and had numerous turnovers.

“It’s an honor, but the more important thing is, as a team, we’ve got to be better as a group,” Carr said. “There’s 20 players in the locker room and three coaches, and it’s not on the coaches because they did a great job. They had us prepared.”

Assistant coach Joe Dumais is the acting head coach during Bennett’s absence. Dumais believed that not everyone played with passion.

“St. Lawrence came out hard, and they won a lot of one-on-one battles,” Dumais said. “We had some of our guys that were playing hard, and some guys that were just passengers tonight.”

The Saints (3-7-3, 9-13-3), who snapped a nine-game winless streak, took a 1-0 lead in the second period on Drew Smolcynski’s goal.

Dutchmen goalie and Niskayuna native Colin Stevens made 33 saves.
