Stevens back in goal for Union tonight against Cornell
Freshman Colin Stevens is expected to get the start in goal again as ECAC Hockey-leading Union hosts Cornell tonight at 7 at Messa Rink.
Stevens, a Niskayuna native, started in place of the injured Troy Grosenick against Colgate on Friday and made 27 saves to help the 11th-ranked Dutchmen to a 3-1 victory.
There are three changes in the lineup. Left wing Kevin Sullivan and right wing Trevor Mingoia will play on a line with center Kyle Bodie, replacing left wing Daniel Ciampini and right wing Max Novak. Charlie Vasaturo takes Taylor Reid's place on defense.
Here is the Union lineup, starting with the forwards (LW-C-RW):
Matt Hatch/Kelly Zajac/Wayne Simpson
Kevin Sullivan/Kyle Bodie/Trevor Mingoia
Daniel Carr/Jeremy Welsh/Josh Jooris
Cole Ikkala/Mark Bennett/Sam Coatta
The defensive pairings are:
Shawn Stuart/Mat Bodie
Nolan Julseth-White/Charlie Vasaturo
Shane Gostisbehere/Greg Coburn
I'll have more on this game later in my pregame report.
