The Penn State men's hockey team (6-3-0) made Saturday's match-up against Air Force Academy (3-4-3) an entirely different game compared to Friday's.
Penn State freshman Matthew Skoff made 34 saves for a win over Air Force, 5-1, after the team lost to them Friday night at Greenberg Ice Pavilion.
Penn State's Casey Bailey scored through the five-hole at 15:29 of the first period. The goal was Bailey's fourth of the season and was assisted by Max Gardiner and Peter Sweetland.
In the second period, Luke Juha scored his first goal of the season, with an assist by Bailey. It was a slap shot from the left to make the score 2-0 at 6:39 of the second.
Air Force disbanded any hope for a Penn State shutout with a goal early in the third period. Air Force's Casey Kleisinger scored at 2:41 in the third to make the score 2-1.
David Glen then shut down any hope for Air Force to tie the game. He scored his sixth goal of the season at 10:38 in the third period. Air Force coach Frank Serratore pulled his goalie near the end of the game, which allowed Penn State's Michael McDonagh and Connor Varley to both score on an empty net. McDonagh's goal was made at 17:20 in the third.
Varley scored the final goal at 19:53 in the third period. Varley's goal was also his first of the season.
