CANTON - Junior wing Greg Carey scored a pair of first period power play goals and goaltender Matt Weninger (23 saves) ran his shutout streak against the University of Alabama in Huntsville to 107:17 as St. Lawrence University completed a weekend sweep of the Chargers with a 3-1 win at Appleton Arena on Saturday night.
Carey scored his fifth and sixth goals of the year as the 5-1 15th-ranked Saints power play connected on its first two chances of the game. He snapped a wrist shot from the short slot past last-minute Charger starter John Griggs at 5:52 of the first period after being set up by defenseman George Hughes, and beat Griggs again at 14:24 when he one-timed Kyle Flanagans pass into the far corner of the net with Justin Baker also assisting. Tommy Thompson scored Saints, giving SLU a 3-0 lead after two.
The Saints will open ECAC play at Brown and Yale Nov. 9-10 while the Chargers will play a Nov. 10-11 set at Northeastern.
