HANOVER, N.H. — After giving up four power-play goals in Friday’s 5-3 loss to Harvard, Union needed a bounce-back victory in the worst way against Dartmouth on Saturday.

The Dutchmen got it.

Ryan Walker scored with 3:46 left in the third period to break a 1-1 tie and give the Dutchmen a 3-1 ECAC Hockey victory over the Big Green at Thompson Arena.

The victory gives Union (7-8-1 ECACH, 14-9-5 overall) a three-point lead over Colgate and RPI for the final home-ice spot for the first round of the ECACH Tournament.

After a scoreless first period, Dartmouth (7-7-2, 8-12-3) took a 1-0 lead on a Matt Baker goal 3:38 into the second period. But Greg Campbell got that back for the Dutchmen over two minutes later. It’s the third straight game Campbell has scored a goal.

The winning goal came off a faceoff win by Liam Morgan in Dartmouth’s right-wing circle. He drew the puck back to Walker, who fired a wrist shot past goalie Adrian Clark.

Morgan added an empty-net goal with 1:06 left.

The Dutchmen were much better on the penalty kill. They killed two Big Green power plays.

Union goalie Darion Hanson made 34 saves, including 16 in the first period.
