For AIC to go places this year, they have to play their game for a full 60 minutes. Tonight they did just that, earning a 2-0 shutout over Holy Cross. Hear from Head Coach Eric Lang on some things he saw tonight. Chris Theodore and Eric Otto both found the scoresheet and Jake Kucharski earned the shutout in net.
On his team’s effort he said that it was “outstanding , with discipline, and we were stingy. We defended every inch of our ice tonight. I’m Very proud of our effort.”
Tonight, although he didn’t score a goal, Reggie Millete drew the praise of Lang for his work as the extra skater. Lang said “Reggie gave us great energy. Had some very high end impactful shifts and has warranted more ice time. His leadership and demeanor on the bench was high end.”
Lang noted that his team had to contend with Holy Cross’s style in saying “Holy Cross plays a hard game with a lot of effort. They make you compete.”
On the two goal scorers Lang added “Chris Theodore was the best player on the ice tonight. Eric Otto is regaining his momentum from last year.”
For adjustments for AIC tomorrow, watch their power play as Lang explained “We are gonna have to tweak some power play stuff. They did a really good job on their penalty kill.”
Finally Lang praised Kucharski’s shutout in saying “Jake was a stud. He’s really starting to come into his own.”
