Engineers Remain Hot, Cage Tigers

Albany Times Union, February 16, 2002

PRINCETON, N.J. - Andrew McPherson and Matt Murley each scored third-period goals and Nathan Marsters stopped 37 shots as RPI won 5-3 at Princeton.

The Engineers, 6-1-2 over their past nine games, have won four straight and remained tied with Union, a 5-2 winner at Yale, for sixth place in the ECAC. Both teams have five games remaining. The top five teams in the ECAC earn home ice for first-round playoff series.

Josh Roberts wristed a shot past Marsters 23 seconds into the game, but Marc Cavosie's 19th goal a little more than three minutes later tied the score. Conrad Barnes gave the Engineers (13-10-4 overall, 7-7-3 ECAC) a 2-1 lead at 10:55 of the first and Jim Henkel's seventh goal midway through the second gave RPI a 3-1 lead heading into the final period.

Cavosie's goal extended his point streak to 12 games (10 goals, two assists). He leads the ECAC in scoring with 40 points. Murley is second with 33.

Princeton (7-16-1, 6-10-1) has a one-point lead over Yale in the race for the final ECAC playoff berth.
