A long and winding road through the first half of the regular season for the Cornell men’s hockey team ended with a long and winding tie. Junior forward Tristan Mullin had a goal and an assist for a second straight night, and the Big Red scored twice in the third period to escape Messa Rink with a 3-3 tie against Union on Saturday night.
Despite becoming the last team in the nation to surrender three goals in a game, Cornell (12-1-2, 8-1-1 ECAC Hockey) maintains its perch at #1 in the Pairwise Comparison Ratings – which are used to determine and seed the NCAA tournament field in late March. Meanwhile, Clarkson defeated Quinnipiac, 5-2, to take a one-point lead for first place in the league standings – though the Big Red still has one game in hand.
This one ends in a 3-3 tie. Mullin, Regush, and Locke are your goal scorers for Cornell
