2/2 Recap: Eno busy in defeat

Bowling Green frosh Nick Eno stopped 40 Buckeye shots, but Ohio State avoided the home sweep by defeating his Falcons, 4-2. Eno, a 7th round pick in 2007, stopped 79 shots over the two-game split. His 9-5 record computes to fifth-best in the CCHA, while his GAA (2.65) and save percentage (.907) are each ranked seventh.

After walking into a scholarship over the summer thanks to a Josh Unice renege, the Howell, MI native has asserted himself as the Falcons #1 goaltender. Saying this, don't be surprised if Scott Paluch gives Jimmy Spratt a nod next weekend when the Falcons welcome last-place Alaska.

#4 Denver's grip on a #1 NCAA tourney seed continues to loosen after a 3-2 loss at Mankato. 2006 4th round pick Chris Butler (+1) assisted on the first Pioneers goal as the Mavs swept DU for the first time since 1999. Coach Gwozdecky noted an improved effort tonight, with the team having all week to tune-up before hosting Minnesota on Friday. Meanwhile, the DU faithful eagerly await news regarding leading scorer Brock Trotter, who didn't travel with the club this weekend.

In Niagara Falls, Matt Generous had an assist as St. Lawrence and Niagara played to a 4-4 tie. With a man advantage in the third, the Chesire, CT native fed a pass to Brock Mcbride to give SLU the go-ahead goal. However, Niagara would force OT less than a minute later. The steady Generous failed to cash in an overtime opportunity, ringing a shot of the pipe with 2:20 left.

#5 Michigan State avenged last night's upset loss to Nebraska-Omaha with a 4-2 win at Munn. Centered by Justin Abdelkader (DET), Sabres prospects Tim Kennedy and Corey Tropp were held off the scoresheet after combining for five points in the series opener. The contest marked Kennedy's 100th as a Spartan.

In the AJHL, Brad Eidsness made 35 saves in Okotoks' 4-3 double-overtime win over Brooks. The UFA "AAA" Bisons product hasn't lost a start since a January 5th overtime loss to Sherwood Park.

Waterloo's Drew MacKenzie missed his second consecutive game in the Black Hawks 5-3 loss to Lincoln.
