12/5 Recap: Malone comes up big in debut

Sean Malone logged a successful season debut Friday, notching goal and two assists to lead No. 8 Harvard to a 4-3 victory over Princeton. Malone put the Crimson up 3-2 at 1:35 of the third period and then earned a helper on Tyler Moy's eventual game-winner five minutes later. The three-point night ties his career high set on January 14, 2014 in a 7-4 victory over Boston University. Malone had missed Harvard's first 10 games of the year due to injury.

Elsewhere, Connor Hurley scored his third goal of the year and assisted on the game-winner as Notre Dame roared back with five third period markers to stun Massachusetts 7-5. Hurley put Notre Dame ahead 1-0 at 10:26 of the opening frame when he streaked down the left side and finished a Jake Evans feed. His third multi-point effort gives him eight points through 16 collegiate contests. Freshman goaltender Cal Petersen served as Notre Dame's backup in the come-from-behind win.

J.T. Compher (+2) won a faceoff for a secondary assist as Michigan trounced rival Ohio State 8-3. The helper gives Compher 11 points (3+8) through 14 games.

Hudson Fasching (+1) extended his point drought to five games as No. 3 Minnesota blanked Michigan State 5-0. Senior forward Christian Isackson contributed two shots on goal for the Gophers.

Max Willman posted three shots on goal as Brown was hammered by Union 7-1. Willman has registered two points (1+1) as the Bears have won just twice in their first 10 games.

Brad Navin picked up an assist as Wisconsin lost to Penn State 5-2. Navin has points in two straight games for a total of three (1+2) on the year.


Mikhail Grigorenko made an excellent play to set up Johan Larsson for the Amerks only goal in a 4-1 loss to Binghamton. Larsson led the Amerks with five shots on goal, while Grigorenko's helper gives him points in seven of his last eight contests.

Nathan Lieuwen stopped 24 of 28 shots in defeat. Joel Armia missed his third game in a row with an upper body injury.
