Game Recap

Black Bears Blank Warriors, 3-0

Friday, October 29, 2004

North Andover, Mass. - Jon Jankus (Stoney Creek, Ontario) netted a pair of goals to help No. 7/9 Maine (5-3-0, 1-0-0) to a 3-0 victory over Merrimack (2-4-0, 0-2-0). Billy Ryan (Milton, MA) also scored for the Black Bears and Jimmy Howard (Ogdensburg, NY) made over half of his saves in the final period to pick up the shutout in front of 2,041 at J. Thom Lawler Arena.

Ryan started the scoring at the 14:32 mark of the first period with assists going to John Ronan (South Boston, MA) and Ben Murphy (North Andover, MA). Jankus then got on the board at the 1:29 mark of the second period. The junior forward tipped in a shot by Jeff Mushaluk (Armstrong, British Columbia) to give the Black Bears a 2-0 lead.

Jankus then took advantage of a Merrimack turnover in the final seconds of the second period. He went in on a breakaway as the period was winding down and beat Healey just as the buzzer sounded.

Howard stopped a total of 21 shots including 12 in the final period to preserve the shutout. Jim Healey (Holyrood, Newfoundland) stopped 30 shots in the loss for the Warriors. The sophomore stopped 16 of 18 shots in the second period as the Black Bears outshot the Warriors 18-3 in that period.

Neither team was able to score on the power play as Maine went 0-for-7 and Merrimack was 0-for-6. The Warrior penalty kill has now gone 19-for-19 over the past two games.

Merrimack returns to action Friday night with a Hockey East game at Massachusetts. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
