Lake Placid 8, Saranac Lake1
LAKE PLACID — After what Lake Placid boys’ hockey coach Keith Clark called “a stagnant first period,” the Blue Bombers (11-4-2, 4-3-1) exploded for six second-period markers in a seven-goal rout of Saranac Lake in the opening round of the Winter Carnival Classic.
Senior forward Eddie Kane paced Lake Placid with four goals, while linemates Shane McNierney and Dillion Savage combined for five points.
“In the first period, I think both teams were feeling each other out a little bit,” Clark said. “We made some adjustments, and I was pleased with how our team responded. That (Kane-McNierney-Savage) line has been gelling as of late. It’s a big win over our rival with two points on the line.”
Troy Jacques buried two goals and Chris Williams added two assists.
Quinn Urquhart tallied the lone marker for the Red Storm at 11:39 of the middle period with the assist credited to Chris Spicer.
Tucker Angelopoulos nabbed the win between the pipes, fending off 11 of 12 shots faced. Blake Darrah and Justin Farmer combined for 17 saves.
The Blue Bombers face Shaker-Colonie, who rank No. 13 in the latest New York State Sportswriters Association Division I poll, today at the ‘32 Olympic Rink.
