Quinnipiac 4, Yale 0

Goalie Michael Garteig made 33 saves and No. 4 Quinnipiac scored two goals in 17 seconds in the second period as the Bobcats defeated neighborhood rival Yale 4-0 February 14 in New Haven in a game seen LIVE on CPTV Sports. The ‘War on Whitney’ will be repeated several times in upcoming days (check broadcast schedule).

Quinnipiac, which defeated Yale three times last season before losing to the Bulldogs in the NCAA Division I championship game, improved to 21-5-5, 10-3-3 ECAC. No. 13 Yale, which failed to capitalize on five power plays, dropped to 12-8-4, 7-7-3.

Cory Hibbeler opened the scoring in the first period for Quinnipiac. The Bobcats then struck in quick succession in the second period. After Sam Anas scored at the 7:33 mark, Connor Clifton — who scored in Quinnipiac’s 3-3 home tie with the Bulldogs in November — followed up 17 seconds later. Quinnipiac is second and Yale sixth in the ECAC standings.
