Tim Carr got a win in his first start as an Icer.
The freshman goaltender saved 19 of Rhode Island’s 21 shots, and Penn State improved its record to 6-0 after a 6-2 victory.
Junior forward Eric Steinour began the scoring for the Icers with assists from senior Kurt Collins and junior George Saad. But about five minutes later, the Rams tied it up at one.
The second period was all Penn State as freshman Tommy Olczyk notched two goals and senior Chris Cerutti, playing in his first game since injuring his left knee on Aug. 23., scored as well.
Going into the third the Icers led, 4-1. Junior Dominic Morrone tallied a short-handed goal at 8:26 from senior Dan Loucks and sophomore Nate Jensen. Collins, coming off a hat trick performance against the Ohio Bobcats on Oct. 22, added the Icers’ sixth goal.
The Icers take on Rhode Island again Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Brad Boss Ice Arena.
