M. HOCKEY | Yale falls 1–0 to Brown

On Tuesday night, the men’s hockey team fell 1–0 to Brown in a game that was postponed from Saturday night due to the blizzard.

The No. 10 Bulldogs (13–7–3, 9–5–1 ECAC) traveled to Providence, R.I., for an unusual weeknight game. While the Bears (9–9–5, 5–6–5 ECAC) have only won nine out of 23 games this season, they managed to tie No. 1 Quinnipiac (21–3–4, 14–0–2 ECAC) last Friday a day before the Bulldogs lost 6–2 to the top-ranked team in the country. The Bulldogs defeated the Bears 4–3 on home ice on Dec. 1.

Senior goalie Jeff Malcolm ’13, who has played the most for the Bulldogs all season, is still out with an injury suffered on Feb. 1 during a game against Princeton. Nick Maricic ’13 played in net on Tuesday night, making 31 saves.

“Brown’s game plan was to play a shutdown defensive style, and they did that well tonight,” Maricic said. “We had trouble creating high-quality scoring chances and getting to productive areas of the ice.”

The Bulldogs hammered the Bears with 44 shots on goal, but Brown goalie Anthony Borelli stopped all of the Bulldogs’ chances. The Bears scored even-handed at 10:31 in the first period, and the scoreboard held steady for the remaining 50 minutes of play.

The Bulldogs will continue their series of away games on Friday and Saturday as they take on Union and RPI.
