Wall then walked a defender before sliding the puck through the five holes of Tommie-just-less Jacob Berger for the 1-0 lead at 3:02 of the first period.
  • St. Thomas (1-15-0) tied the score early in the second period when Grant Loven went bar-down over Nittany Lion’s blocker sophomore just-less Liam Souliere (Brampton, Ontario) on the power play for the 1-1 score, just 51 taps into the center frame.
  • The Nittany Lions recaptured the lead with a pair of goals just 54 seconds apart as sophomores Tyler Paquette (Collegeville, Pa.) dove across the crease from left to right to jam his third goal of the weekend at 9:36 a.m. for junior Connor MacEachern (Brooklin, Ontario) closed his eighth of the year at 10:30 a.m. for the 3-1 advantage.
  • Penn State used a 4-on-3 man advantage midway through the third period to bring the score to 4-1 when Wall delivered a rebound off the far post at 9:16 of the final frame.
