Friday, December 31, 2004

Storrs, Conn. - Defensemen Bryan Schmidt and Jeff Caron each had a goal and an assist to lead Merrimack (8-12-2) to a 4-1 win over UConn (3-12-2) in the consolation game of the Toyota UConn Hockey Classic. Matt Johnson and Hank Carisio also scored and Brent Gough added two assists in the victory for the Warriors.

Merrimack scored on its first power play opportunity 8:13 into the game. Caron fed Schmidt at the point and the junior snapped a shot off the glove of UConn goaltender Brad Smith for his team-leading 11th goal of the season. UConn answered with a power play goal at 11:48 of the first period. Bill Magnuson picked up a loose puck as he skated through the slot and put a backhander past the stick of Healey to tie the game.

Johnson gave the Warriors a 2-1 lead with his second shorthanded goal of the season at 13:02 of the second period. With just four seconds remaining on the UConn power play, Johnson slid a low wrist shot past Smith. Caron followed with a 5-on-3 power play goal at 14:31 of the middle period. The sophomore blasted a slapshot from the top of the left circle that beat Smith high on his glove side.

Carisio netted the lone goal of the third period, scoring his third of the season at the 14:31 mark to provide the final margin. Brent Gough and Brendon Clark assisted on the goal.

Jim Healey finished with 24 saves for the Warriors and Merrimack took a season-high 45 shots in the victory.

NOTES: Johnson's goal was the 50th point of his career...Merrimack won on the road for the first time this season (1-6-1)...The Warriors remained perfect all-time against UConn (18-0-0).
