PSU Hockey Downs Michigan 4-1 in B1G Tourney

Penn State men's hockey rolled over the Michigan Wolverines in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament in Detroit.

Penn State's men's hockey squad roared its way to a 4-1 victory over the Michigan Wolverines in the Big Ten Tournament. The quarterfinal event saw four different Nittany Lion players find the net to help No. 15 PSU advance to 22-11-2 on the season.

The Lions edged Michigan in overall shots, 34-31 with goaltender, Peyton Jones, making 30 saves on the night. Penn State's strong first period gave them a three goal cushion with Liam Folkes scoring on a powerplay and Nate Sucese and David Goodwin each netting goals in the opening period. Vince Pedrie scored number four for PSU in the second period.

The victory was a solid bounce-back win for the Lions considering they closed out the regular season by dropping a double-header on the road to Michigan last week.

With the win Penn State is now 18-0-0 when allowing two goals or less this season.

Next up the Lions faceoff against top-seeded Minnesota in the semifinal match on Friday at 8 pm. This is the first post-season meeting between the two squads. Penn State went 0-4 against the Gophers this season.
