Manhattanville blanks No. 14 Neumann 3-0

More news about: Manhattanville | Neumann

STAMFORD, Conn. – Senior Mark Rivera had a pair of goals and junior Brian Fleming turned aside all 29 shots he faced for his second career shutout as Manhattanville used some good special teams play on both ends of the ice to pick up a 3-0 victory over D3Hockey.com #14 Neumann in ECAC West Conference action on Saturday night at Terry Conners Rink.

Rivera was the offensive star for Manhattanville (2-1-0, 2-1-0 ECAC West) in the win, posting the fourth multi-goal game of his career with the team's first two goals of the night, while junior Anton Racklin also found the net for the home team. At the other end of the ice, Fleming had another good night between the pipes, earning his first shutout of the season and his second win in two starts in 2013-14.

Special teams also played a major role in the win, as Manhattanville limited Neumann (0-2-1, 0-2-1 ECAC West) to only six shots and no goals on five man-up chances. The Valiants, meanwhile, scored twice on the power play in the third period to put the game away.

Manhattanville got on the board first at the 11:09 mark of the opening frame, as Rivera capitalized on a fortuitous bounce to light the lamp. After the Knights won a draw in their own zone, a clearance took a strange carom off the sideboards and the puck came right to Rivera at the top of the circle, and the senior fired a wrist shot top corner for his second goal of the year. The teams skated into the first intermission with Neumann posting a 12-11 edge in shots, with Rivera's lone tally providing the difference.

Both teams had chances in the second period, with the Knights having the best opportunities thanks to four penalties called on the Valiants. Neumann seemed to tie the score while even strength midway through the second period, when Sam House sent a pass forward to spring Kajon McKay on a breakaway chance that he appeared to put past Fleming, but the referee behind the net waived the goal off to keep the home team ahead. Still playing with the lead, Manhattanville killed off two more man-down chances and as a result took that one-goal lead into the third period.

While the Knights were having trouble converting their man-up chances into scores, the Valiants scored twice on the man advantage in the third period to put the game away. It was Rivera again finding the net for Manhattanville at the 10:26 mark of the frame, taking a pass from junior Jake Mooney and beating Braely Torris low to the short side to make it 2-0 Valiants. Racklin put the game on ice during a five-on-three power play with less than three minutes to go, wristing a shot from the high slot past Torris for his first of the season.

Manhattanville out-shot Neumann by a healthy 20-6 margin in the third period, giving the home team a 41-29 edge in shots for the night.

Manhattanville will be back at Terry Conners Rink next weekend, as the Valiants host 3rd ranked Utica on Friday night beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Stamford. The live GoValiants.TV coverage will begin at approximately 7:20 p.m.
