BOSTON – Chris Glionna, the winningest coach of Suffolk hockey, collected his 100th-career victory as the Suffolk hockey team shutout Becker, 1-0, in an ECAC Northeast matchup Saturday night at Emmons Horrigan O'Neil Memorial Rink.
Suffolk snapped a two-game skid with Nick Mosher netting the lone goal for the Rams. Michael Levine posted 23 saves in the freshman's first collegiate shutout. The clean sheet marks the first for the Suffolk since Brandon Smolarek kept the Leopards off the scoreboard in the Rams' 4-0 over Wentworth February 22, 2014.
Mosher converted feeds from seniors Connor McCarthy and Shaughn Shields on the golden goal, his fifth of the season, for the Rams. Levine turned aside nine shots in the final 20 minutes of action to ice his second career win, as he also shined in the opening 9:21 of the contest with five stops that came while the Hawks (8-14-1, 4-9-1 ECAC NOrtheast) were on a five-minute power play.
Junior Tyler Stepke made 35 saves, including 25 over the final two periods of play in the setback for Becker, as Suffolk outshot the Hawks by a 36-23 margin to complete a two-game regular season series sweep.
Suffolk closes out the regular season Wednesday, Feb. 17 versus Nichols at 7:40 p.m.
