Box Score

Hamden, CT - The Brown men's ice hockey team (7-6-3, 3-5-1) was defeated, 5-1, by No. 19 Quinnipiac University (10-6-4, 7-3-3) on Friday night in ECACHL action. Sophomore forward Ryan Garbutt (Winnipeg, Manitoba) scored the Bears' lone goal in the third period.

Despite the Bears dominating the Bobcats in the face-off circle, winning 12 of 16 in the first period, Quinnipiac came out hot, as they jumped out to an early 3-0 lead. Quinnipiac forward Brandon Wong, the team's leading scorer with 14 goals, netted the first two goals, as forward Jean-Marc Beaudoin scored the third.

Wong's first goal came just 1:23 into the game and he converted on another just four minutes later. With 7:19 on the clock, Beaudoin scored a short-handed goal to put the Bobcats ahead, 3-0.

It wasn't until 1:12 into the third period when Brown scored its first goal from Garbutt. Junior Chris Poli (Medfield, MA) was given the assist. The goal marked Garbutt's third in the last four games and was his second straight since scoring at Yale last weekend.

Quinnipiac answered back with two power-play goals, the first by Ben Nelson 11:58 into the period, and the second came from Jamie Bates at 13:17, which eventually ended the game at 5-1.

Freshman goalie, Dan Rosen, chalked up 34 saves, while Quinnipiac's Bud Fisher made 27 stops.

Brown is back in action tomorrow, when the Bears take on Princeton in New Jersey at 7 p.m.
