ST. PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s hockey team was shut out 2-0 by Saint Mary’s on Saturday at Don Robert Ice Rink, suffering a series sweep to move to 2-15-4 overall and 1-10-1 in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

After a scoreless first period, Saint Mary’s scored what proved to be the game winner at the 3:37 mark and with 7:36 remaining in the game the Cardinals added an insurance goal. Gustavus outshot Saint Mary’s 31-25 and had many opportunities in front of the net, but was unable to capitalize. Both teams were scoreless on the power play as the Gusties went 0-for-3 and the Cardinals went 0-for-5. The five penalty kills by the Gusties matches a season best.

Erik Johnson (Sr., Sauk Rapids, Minn.) suffered the loss after making 23 saves.

Gustavus faces Bethel next weekend. Friday’s game is away, while Saturday’s game is back at Don Roberts Ice Rink for the inaugural Hill Crew Teddy Bear Toss.
