Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute took over sole possession of second place in the ECAC with a 4-1 victory over Yale Saturday night at Houston Field House.

The win was the sixth straight for the Engineers, who improved to 9-6-3 in the league (14-11-5 overall) with four regular-season games remaining. The Engineers and the Bulldogs (13-9-3, 9-8-1) began the night tied for second.

Nick Bailen, Mike Zalewski and Mark McGowan scored third-period goals to break open a tight game. Freshman goalie Jason Kasdorf made 26 saves to pick up his 10th win.

With the score tied after two periods, RPI broke the deadlock at 5:39 when Bailen collected a Jacob Laliberte pass while driving toward the net, and snapped a shot past Yale netminder Connor Wilson.
