Hockey: Carr hurt in Union's win

Hockey: Carr hurt in Union's win

Union lost leading scorer Daniel Carr to an upper-body injury in the first period Friday against Cor

ITHACA — Union lost leading scorer Daniel Carr to an upper-body injury in the first period Friday against Cornell. But that didn’t deter the third-ranked Dutchmen.

Matt Wilkins scored the game-winning goal, and goalie Colin Stevens made 23 saves to carry the Dutchmen to a 4-1 ECAC Hockey victory over the 11th-ranked Big Red at Lynah Rink.

The first-place Dutchmen (14-3 ECACH, 20-6-3 overall) maintained their three-point lead over second-place Quinnipiac, which defeated Yale, 4-0. It’s the fifth straight year Union has won 20 games.

Carr, who has 13 goals and 17 assists, was hurt when Joel Lowry checked him into the glass. Union coach Rick Bennett said Carr, the team’s all-time Division I leading scorer, is day-to-day.

“I thought it was a great push back by everybody,” Bennett said. “I thought our leadership from [captain] Mat Bodie and [alternate captain] Shayne Gostisbehere was excellent. They kept everything poised.”

Union took a 1-0 lead on Kevin Sullivan’s goal with 8:12 left in the first period. Cornell (8-5-4, 12-6-5) tied it when Jake Weidner scored on a breakaway, set up when Union defenseman Jeff Taylor got tangled up with a linesmen.

But Wilkins got that goal back less than a minute later to help Union retake the lead.

“To get one right away and take back the momentum is huge,” Wilkins said.

Sam Coatta made it 3-1 with 2:32 left in the second period. Stevens, a Niskayuna native, protected that lead when he robbed Weidner twice on a back-door play just before the end of the period.

Daniel Ciampini sealed the deal on an empty-net goal with 26 seconds left in the game.
