The No. 1 Icers advanced to 12-1 on the season after defeating No. 19 Rutgers 13-2 Friday night.
Penn State's rout of the Scarlet Knights began when Dan Meiselman put a puck past Rutgers’ goalie Brandon DeLibero at 2:32 during an Icers’ power play — the Icers went 1 for 3 and held Rutgers at 0 for 5 in power plays.
From there, the Icers’ never looked back.
Tommy Olczyk recorded his second hat trick of the season, putting two pucks in the net during the second period, one of them while the Icers were shorthanded, and one in the third period.
Ten Icers recorded a goal in the game, including defenseman Dan Loucks who found himself in a 2-on-1 situation.
The Icers are set to play their second game of the series tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. in the Greenberg Ice Pavilion.
