Dutchmen beat Princeton, end skid

Sunday, Nov. 16, 2014
The Union hockey team needed to feel good about itself heading into final exams for the first trimester. To do that, the Dutchmen needed a complete-game effort to snap out of its six-game winless skid.
Left winger Daniel Ciampini and defenseman Jeff Taylor of Clifton Park did their part. Ciampini collected his second career hat trick and finished with a career-high five points, while Taylor had a career-best four points to lead the 12th-ranked Dutchmen to a 6-1 ECAC Hockey thumping of Princeton on Saturday at Messa Rink.

Union vs. Harvard: Dutchmen rally to earn 2-2 tie

Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014
The way Saturday’s game against Harvard started, it looked like it was going to be a very long night for eighth-ranked Union. The Dutchmen were down, 2-0, in the first 10:44 of the period. They were outshot, 14-3. They had no answers in trying to slow down a speedy Crimson squad. But the Dutchmen were a much different team over the final 45 minutes of the game.

Union vs. Dartmouth: Big Green stun Dutchmen in OT

Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014
Union blowing a 3-0 lead at Messa Rink would have been unthinkable the last few seasons. But the eighth-ranked Dutchmen now find themselves in some not-so-favorable unchartered territory. Dartmouth overcame Union’s 3-0 lead Friday, scoring late in the third period to send the game into overtime, and then winning it, 4-3, on Tim O’Brien’s knuckler of a goal with 1:38 left in the extra session.

Opponents pulling plug on Union power play

Friday, Nov. 7, 2014
One of the main reasons Union has become a national power the last few seasons is its power play.
Since 2009-10, the Dutchmen have been ranked in the top 15 in the country on the power play. They had the top-ranked power play in 2010-11, when they won their first ECAC Hockey regular-season title and made their first NCAA tournament appearance at the Division I level.

Union vs. RPI: Engineers finish sweep

Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014
Union coach Rick Bennett wanted a better effort from his squad Saturday night in its rematch with Route 7 rival Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute after getting routed the night before in Troy. Bennett got that effort from the Dutchmen, and they were doing their best to protect a one-goal lead. Unfortunately for the second-ranked Dutchmen, two turnovers cost them. Mark McGowan tied it up late in the third period, and Viktor Liljegren poked in the game-winner on his third attempt with 2:19 left in overtime, giving the Engineers a dramatic 2-1 come-from-behind ECAC Hockey victory before 2,260 fans at Messa Rink.

Hockey: Rivals too focused on present to worry about past

Friday, Oct. 31, 2014
For the fans of the Union and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute hockey teams, the Jan. 25 Mayor’s Cup postgame brawl between the two clubs will never be forgotten.
But the players on both sides have moved past what happened nine months ago. They have too much to worry about this season, like correcting mistakes and trying to find goal scoring.
