Oswego State Returns From Western NY Trip With Four Points
The Oswego State men's ice hockey team came out of their Western New York road trip unscathed for the fourth consecutive season, Saturday night.  The Lakers' 7-4 victory over Fredonia came 24 hours after Friday's 4-1 domination of Buffalo State.

Oswego State now has an overall record of 3-1-0 with a perfect mark of 2-0-0 in conference play.  It's just the first week of November, but the SUNYAC standings already have a familiar look to them—Plattsburgh and Oswego at the top, followed by everyone else.

NOTES :

- One red flag for the Lakers is their power-play success rate.  Coach Ed Gosek is usually displeased whenever the team is converting on less than 25 percent of their man-up opportunities. 

That being said, he must be beside himself this week.  After converting on two of five chances in a season-opening win against Elmira, Oswego State has failed to score on their last 17 man-up opportunities.  The two for 22 mark puts the Lakers at nine percent on the year.

- As bad as they've been when they have a man advantage, the Lakers have been equally as impressive when they're a man down. 

Oswego State had not allowed a power-play goal going into Saturday's matchup at Fredonia.  The Blue Devils lit the lamp twice on the power play, but that still leaves the Lakers at a 90 percent penalty kill rate.

- The top forward line of Chris Laganiere, Eric Selleck, and Justin Fox (pictured) combined for 16 points on the weekend. 

Laganiere looks poised for a breakout junior year, as he is averaging a point and an assist per outing through the first four games.

Junior Stephen Mallaro scored his first collegiate goal in the 4-1 win over Buffalo State.  His marker came on a rebound midway through the opening period and stood as the game winner.

- Sohomore Paul Beckwith had his worst game of the short season on Saturday (four goals allowed on 27 shots), but all in all he has been exactly what Oswego State thought they were getting in net.  His GAA is a miniscule 2.26 and he has stopped 93 percent of the shots he has seen.
