College hockey roundup: No. 1 Quinnipiac takes a fall

Greg Carey scored a pair of goals and St. Lawrence tarnished the recently acquired No. 1 national ranking by Quinnipiac with a 2-1 ECAC victory over the Bobcats Friday night in Hamden, Conn.

The loss snapped a 21-game winning streak by the Bobcats (21-4-4, 14-1-2).

Despite the loss, Quinnipiac clinched first place in the ECAC regular season following Yale’s loss to Union.


Carey opened the scoring at 4:37 of the first, then added the winner (his 22d strike of the season) less than three minutes into the third for the Saints (14-11-4, 7-6-4).
