STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - Redshirt sophomore forward Eric Scheid (Blaine, Minn.) registered his 16th point of the season to set a new career high and nine Nittany Lions recorded a point, but the Penn State men’s hockey team fell to No. 10/10 Michigan, 7-3, at Pegula Ice Arena Friday night. The Nittany Lions fell to 4-18-1 (0-9-0-0 Big Ten), while the Wolverines improved to 14-6-3 (6-2-1-1 Big Ten).
Michigan jumped out to an early two-goal lead midway through the first period, but sophomore Casey Bailey (Anchorage, Alaska) and Scheid netted their fourth and 11th goals of the season, respectively, in the second period to tie the game. The Wolverines responded with five of the next six goals, including an empty-net tally, to account for the 7-3 final. Freshman Zach Saar (Richland, Mich.) also scored for the Nittany Lions.
Penn State, which out shot its opponent for the sixth time in the last seven games (36-28), went 0-for-3 on the power play. The Wolverines converted on 1-of-3 power-play opportunities. Freshman goaltender Eamon McAdam (Perkasie, Pa.), who allowed three goals on 11 shots, started for the Nittany Lions, while junior PJ Musico (Orange, Calif.) made 13 saves in the loss.
The teams will play again Saturday (Feb. 8) when they face off at Pegula Ice Arena at 5 p.m.
