The Cornell men’s hockey team capped a rare two-game sweep of North Dakota at Ralph Engelstad Arena, scoring three unanswered goals for a second straight night for a 3-1 victory on Saturday. It was the first time the Fighting Hawks have been swept at home in more than four years.
Goaltender Ian Shane continued the stellar start to his collegiate career by making 32 consecutive saves to close out the game after North Dakota (13-8) scored its lone goal on its first shot of the night at the 2-minute mark on a power play.
Kyler Kovich, Ondrej Psenicka, Brenden Locke were the goal scorers for Cornell.
The victories pull the Big Red to 4-2-1 over its first seven games of nine straight away from home – a stretch that is scheduled to conclude Friday and Saturday at Yale and Brown, respectively. It also marked the first time North Dakota lost a two-game home weekend since Nov. 16-17, 2018.
