College Hockey:
Cahill goal completes Yale’s rally past Princeton

— No. 3 Yale trailed 3-0 and 4-3 but rallied for a 5-4 victory over Princeton on Sunday on Chris Cahill’s goal with 1:53 remaining.

Rob Kleebaum scored twice and Mike Kramer added a goal to put the Tigers (15-10-2, 10-8-2 ECAC Hockey) ahead 3-0 in the first period, but the Bulldogs (22-5, 16-4) rallied to tie before the end of the frame on short-handed goals by Andrew Miller and Charles Brockett and a last-minute goal by Brian O’Neill.

Kleebaum completed the hat trick to put Princeton ahead 4-3 in the second period, but Kenny Agostino scored a power-play goal to tie things again.

Ryan Rondeau made 36 saves for Yale. Alan Reynolds stopped 27 shots for Princeton.

    Looks like they took a lesson from that Air Force loss in November eh?

  • EliBlue

    Took a lesson as in came back and won a thrilling game where they dominated after coming out flat? As in they complete controlled play from the minute 18 mark on? Or was there some other lesson out there?

      Against another nobody. You get caught down by 3 against a team worth talking about and you won’t have the same outcome. 3 of 5 losses are against teams with losing records and almost loses another EZAC game. This team will be lucky to hang on to a 2 seed

        you dont know what your talking about when saying princeton is a nobody team they are ranked among the top 10 college teams in the entire country, so check your facts

        • GeauxSioux

          Please direct me to a poll/ranking where Princeton is in the top 10. Thanks!

        what’s amazing you North Dakota troll is that Ralph Engelstad was a Nazi and Hitler lover. The fact that he had his employees at his casino celebrate Hitler’s birthday, then he was accused of sexual harrassment, then he made his fortune off people’s addictions and then bankrolled North Dakota hockey under the stipulation they not change the racist name, then went on to hire Hack-stool who was suspended for giving the finger, has multiple players fighting alcoholism under his tenure and you want to say what about Yale?

          Guess this will be everyone’s argument against North Dakota’s HOCKEY TEAM for the rest of the year. And you say we have no class? What a shame.

          • EliBlue

            Not attacking North Dakota on ice. But saying you Geaux Sioux and your buddies are by far the most classless fans in college sports. You can’t even man up and say that your program has a very dark shadow over it. So what I’m saying Geaux Sioux is you’re a coward and a bully.

          • GeauxSioux

            Thank you for the childish personal attack. You know nothing about me. You’re mad at Yale for slipping, not at me.

    While Yale did pull it out, Cahill showed no class in chirping at the Princeton bench and coaching staff after scoring the goal…Yale won’t go far with their goaltending plays the way it did yesterday.

  • Matteo

    Please elnighten me. Late in 1st period, Yale down 3-1, scored shorthanded to make it 3-2. Princenton was penalized on the play and Yale eventually scored on the ensuing power play. Am no rules expert. Can you score and draw a penalty on the same play? If so, does pro/olympic hockey have the same rule? Thanks.

    • GeauxSioux

      Its a new rule.
