Cards working to improve power play


Luke Baleshta leads the team with four power-play goals, and Mark Constantine is next with three.

Plattsburgh did net one last weekend, courtesy of Jared Docking against Wesleyan. Emery said the Cardinals worked on the power play in practice twice this week.

“I think we worked the power play well last weekend; we just didn’t do a good job bringing it up the ice,” Emery said. “We’ve watched a lot of video. Coach (Steve) Moffat has spent hours and hours on it on video. So hopefully we can keep working on it.”

This weekend, No. 9 Plattsburgh continues its stretch of six straight nonconference games to start the second semester. Tonight’s game will be played at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

Skidmore (5-5-2) will be playing its first contest in a month. It ended the first semester with losses to Castleton and Curry on Dec. 7 and 8.

“Skidmore’s a well coached team,” Emery said. “They’re gonna play torpedo-style hockey a lot like Middlebury, so we’ve got our work cut out for us. It’s a little bit bigger rink, and I think we’re a good skating team so the size of the rink will help us.”
