ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan ice hockey team defeated No. 11-ranked Penn State by a score of 3-2 on Friday night (March 10) at Yost Ice Arena. Junior forward Tony Calderone recorded two goals in the winning effort.
Penn State defenseman Kris Myllari found the back of the net with 0.5 seconds remaining in the first period, mere seconds after the conclusion of a Nittany Lions power play. Myllari powered the puck from the blue line off the assist by freshman Nate Sucese.
The Wolverines evened the scoring when Calderone beat goaltender Peyton Jones at the 16:54 mark of the second period. Sophomore forward Cooper Marody set up the one-timer with a pass across the attacking zone.
Penn State regained a one-goal lead with 4:51 left in the second stanza when defenseman David Thompson scored from the point after forward Andrew Sturtz wrapped the puck around the boards.
Early in the third period, Calderone brought the Wolverines back even with his second goal of the contest, again assisted by Marody. Marody's heave up the ice allowed for the two-on-one breakaway, with Calderone adding another goal to his team-leading total (14).
Moments later, sophomore forward Brendan Warren netted the eventual game-winner at the 14:35 mark of the third period, assisted by freshman forward James Sanchez. Warren's shot from right outside the crease trickled into the back of the net, giving the Wolverines the 3-2 advantage.
