The Penn State men’s hockey team handed Arizona State their first loss of the season after an 8-3 win Friday night.
The Sun Devils struck first at 12:20 of a back and fourth first period. The crowd erupted in boos when the Dan Styrna took a snap shot that just missed Skoff’s glove and into the net for 1-0 lead.
The Nittany Lions tied the game at 18:45 after a power play goal from frehman defensemen Luke Juha’s second goal of the season after a cross-ice pass from junior forward Michael McDonough.
The Lions didn’t miss a beat once the second period started. Penn State got goals from sophomore forward Tommy Olczyk, as well as freshman forwards Kenny Brooks and David Glen goals in less than four minutes.
The game calmed down and appeared to be headed into the second intermission at 4-2 until Penn State got its second power play with just 38 seconds left in the period. Glen scored the second of three goals on the night with just 15 seconds remaining.
The scoring did not stop in the 3rd period. The Lions added three more tallies with goals from senior forwards Michael Longo, Eric Steinour as well as Glen completing a hat trick.
Penn State was also 3-for-3 on the power play despite coming into the game 4-for-49 with the man advantage.
