Third-period outburst powers #7 Cornell to 5-4 win (full coverage)

Senior forward Trevor Yates scored his team-leading sixth goal of the season with 2 minutes, 49 seconds remaining in the third period, capping the Cornell men’s hockey team’s dramatic 5-4 victory over Niagara on Tuesday night at Lynah Rink.

Cornell (8-1), which is currently ranked seventh in both major national college polls, scored four goals in the third period to stun Niagara (6-4-1). Junior defenseman Matt Nuttle had a career-high three assists for the Big Red, including the secondary helper on the winning goal.

Wilson made the initial stop, but Yates poked it the rebound between the goalie’s knees to cap the comeback. Read More
