UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The No. 13 Penn State Nittany Lions were unable to complete a weekend sweep against No. 6 Ohio State as they dropped a 5-1 decision in Big Ten Conference action, snapping their 11-game unbeaten streak, this evening at Pegula Ice Arena.

PSU falls tro 13-8-3 overall with the loss and 6-5-3-2 in the Big Ten while the Buckeyes move to 15-5-4 on the year and 8-5-1-0 in conference play once again jumping the Lions into second place in the standings with 25 points to Penn State's 23.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Ohio State jumped out to the early lead in this one as Tanner Laczynski finished off a nice feed by Freddy Gerard who skated past a Nittany Lion defenseman and slipped the puck through the crease for the easy finish at 5:08 of the first period.
  • Penn State answered a sophomore James Gobetz (St. James, N.Y.) took the puck away from the Buckeyes at the blue line and skated all the way around the back of the net firing a shot on net and it was classmate Nikita Pavlychev (Yaroslavl, Russia) cleaned up the rebound for the 1-1 score at 12:53 of the opening frame.
  • The Buckeyes regained the lead taking advantage of a five-minute major as Freddy Gerard lit the lamp on the power-play at 15:49 for the 2-1 lead. Penn State killed off the remainder of the major.
  • OSU extended the lead to a pair of goals in the second period as Dakota Joshua was able to finish off a great feed from Gordi Myer during the power-play for the 3-1 edge at 7:03.
  • Ohio State added a late empty net goal by Gerard at 19:27and Austin Pooley fired home a shot on a breakaway with just one second remaining in regulation for the final score.

GOALTENDING

Sophomore Peyton Jones (Langhorne, Pa.) falls to 12-6-2 after stopping 37 shots in the setback with Tommy Nappier remains unbeaten at 3-0-0 after securing 30 saves in his first career Big Ten start.
