Jasiek's game winner propels Dartmouth past Colgate

HAMILTON, N.Y – With just 8:18 remaining in the third period, senior Alex Jasiek broke a scoreless tie with his sixth goal of the season to help the Dartmouth men's hockey team to a 1-0 win Friday night at Colgate's Class of 1965 Arena.
 
At the other end of the ice, junior netminder Adrian Clarkturned aside 28 shots for his second straight shutout and third of the season.
 
Friday marked the first time in 15 years that the Big Green (7-8-2, 6-3-1 ECAC) have turned in consecutive shutouts. Dartmouth beat RPI, 6-0 and 1-0, in Games 2 and 3 of the 2004 ECACA Hockey Quarterfinals. Dan Yacey was in net for both of those wins and now has company as Clark continues his stretch of strong goaltending.
 
Clark's counterpart in Mitch Benson played well all night, but was the victim of a well-placed shot from Jasiek below the circle to his left. Jasiek pulled the puck off a defender's stick and slipped the centering attempt off inside of Benson's pad for his only blemish in 25 Dartmouth shots on goal.
 
The result was another frustrating night for the Raiders (6-13-2, 3-4-2 ECAC), who were blanked for the seventh time in the season, setting a new program mark in just mid-January.
 
Clark's streak without allowing a goal has now reached 122 minutes and seven seconds.
 
Dartmouth is back on the road Saturday at No. 15 Cornell. Game time between the Ivy League foes is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start to lessen the impact on travel for fans and the team during the snowstorm.
