Goaltender Carter Gylander celebrated his 100th game as a Colgate Raider in style on Friday night, making 16 saves in his team’s 5-2 victory over the Yale Bulldogs. The win, coupled with losses by Clarkson and Union solidified the Raider’s hold on third place in the ECAC standings.

The Raiders dominated zone time and possession for long stretches of the first period and outshot the Bulldogs 12-6 for the period. Despite the ice being tilted towards their end, the Bulldogs got the game’s first goal while killing a penalty. A turnover in the neutral zone led to a breakaway for Elan Bar-Lev-Wise, who beat Gylander with a wrist shot into the top right corner of the cage.

Colgate continued their possession dominance in the second period, and this time they were able to take advantage of their opportunities. With 10:09 remaining in the middle frame, the Raiders tied the game at one. Jake Schneider took a stretch pass from Dom Foglia and beat goaltender Jack Stark with a shot from the right circle.

Twenty-two seconds later, the home team used the power play to take the lead. Ross Mitton hammered a one-timer past Stark from the left circle off a cross-ice feed from Alex DiPaolo for his tenth goal of the season. Three minutes later, Mitton set Simon Labelle up for a redirection goal from the slot to give his team a 3-1 lead going into the second intermission.

Colgate added to its lead on the power play with 9:14 remaining in the third when Ethan Manderville scored from the top of the Yale crease. The Bulldogs answered with a power play goal of their own from Rhys Bentham less than a minute later but it was too little, too late. Daniel Panetta scored into an empty Yale net with seven seconds remaining to ice Colgate’s 5-2 victory. The Raiders now have an overall record of 12-13-4, and 9-6-2 in the ECAC.

“It was a good effort from our group tonight,” Colgate head coach Mike Harder said after the game. “I am looking forward to getting back at it tomorrow. Every game is so close and exciting in this league.”
