2/12 Recap: Adam extends in Eagle loss

Luke Adam scored a goal and an assist on Friday as Cape Breton lost at Saint John, 3-2. The late mark at 18:51 of the third period extends Adam's streak to nine straight games with at least one goal. The 6'2 pivot has collected 14 of his league-leading 39 goals over the stretch. Maxime Legault earned an assist in the loss, while Jacob Lagacé continued to struggle as an Eagle by finishing the night with two shots on goal and -2 rating.

In the OHL, Nick Crawford was +3 with an assist as Barrie bested Ottawa, 6-4. On Thursday, the Caledon, Ontario native was +1 in the Colts' 7-2 trouncing of Peterborough.

Marcus Foligno was +1 as Sudbury lost to Brampton, 3-1. The gritty 6'3 forward nearly equaled his 12-goal output from last season when he rang one off the crossbar early in the first period.

In the WHL, Brayden McNabb was +1 as Kootenay dumped Edmonton, 5-2. On Tuesday, the 6'4 defenseman registered a power play assist as the Ice defeated Moose Jaw, 5-2.

In NCAA action, Brad Eidsness made 22 saves as #11 North Dakota lost to #4 St. Cloud State, 4-3. Eidsness' night was a mix of poor positioning leading to goals against and timely stops to keep the Sioux alive late in the game. Sophomore blueliner Corey Fienhage played even in defeat.

Netminders Connor Knapp and Nick Eno both took a rest as #1 Miami held on to post a 3-2 win over Bowling Green. BGSU is now 4-21-4 on the year heading into Saturday's rematch with the RedHawks. Connor Knapp is the likely starter for Miami, while it is unclear if Eno will get the nod for Bowling Green. On Tuesday, Eno stopped all 12 shots he faced through 23:00 of play before suffering a minor leg injury in the Falcons 4-0 loss to #19 Michigan.

Alex Biega earned an assist as Harvard dropped a 5-4 decision to RPI. On Monday, Biega was -3 in Harvard's 4-1 loss to Northeastern in the Beanpot consolation game.

Drew MacKenzie did not dress as #17 Vermont played to a 2-2 tie with Merrimack.

Justin Jokinen was even as Minnesota State lost at #3 Wisconsin, 4-3.

In the USHL, Mark Adams was -1 as Chicago got throttled by Waterloo, 6-1.

On Wednesday, Jordon Southorn was +1 with three sots on goal as PEI lost in a shootout to Halifax, 5-4.
