Game Recap

No. 8 UNH Tops Warriors, 6-1

Wednesday, February 16, 2005

North Andover, Mass. - Sophomore forward Jacob Micflikier (Winnipeg, Man.) scored a goal and added three assists as eighth-ranked New Hampshire scored two shorthanded goals in the second period en route to a 6-1 win over Merrimack in a Hockey East game on Wednesday night at J. Thom Lawler Arena.

With the win, Wildcat head coach Dick Umile became UNH's all-time leader in wins with his 348th. The Wildcats improved to 21-7-3 overall and moved ahead of idle Boston College into first place in the Hockey East standings with a 14-3-2 conference record. Merrimack lost its 10th consecutive game to fall to 8-22-2, 1-18-1.

The Wildcats' line of Micflikier, sophomore Daniel Winnik (Mississauga, Ont.) and senior Justin Aikins (Surrey, B.C.) gave UNH a 2-0 lead at the first intermission, scoring both goals from point blank on rebounds.

Micflikier scored the first goal just 52 seconds into the game, putting home his own rebound at the left post for his 17th goal of the year. Aikins scored less than six minutes later, finishing a rebound off a shot from the slot by Winnik.

The Wildcats extended the lead to four goals with a pair of shorthanded tallies during the same penalty early in the second period. Rookie forward Mike Radja (Yorkville, Ill.) struck first, finishing a rebound off a shot by Josh Ciocco (Atco, N.J.) at the 5:24 mark.

Junior defenseman Brian Yandle (Milton, Mass.) scored another shorthanded goal just 49 seconds later, choosing to shoot on a 2-on-1 rush and beating Merrimack sophomore goaltender Jim Healey (Holyrood, N.F.) from the top of the left circle.

Merrimack sophomore forward Matt Byrnes (Lincoln, R.I.) cut the lead to three goals with a power play goal with less than five minutes to play in the second period, burying a rebound in the slot off a shot from the point by junior defenseman Bryan Schmidt (Bloomington, Minn.). Schmidt recorded his 17th assist and 30th point on the season on the play, while rookie forward Hank Carisio (Cheshire, Conn.) also registered an assist.

Winnik, however, restored the Wildcats' four-goal lead with less than 55 seconds to play in the period, finishing a pass from Micflikier in the slot.

Freshman defenseman Brad Flaishans (Glendale, Ariz.) capped the scoring when his shot from the top of the right circle deflected off a defender and into the far side of the net for a power play goal in the final seconds.

UNH rookie goalie Kevin Regan (South Boston, Mass.) stopped 35 shots, while Healey made 34 saves.

Merrimack faces Northeastern in Boston on Friday, while the Wildcats will face the Huskies in Boston the following night.
