A crazy game at Cheel Arena Saturday night ended with Quinnipiac scoring two goals in the final 5 minutes, 29 seconds to edge the Golden Knights 7-6 before 2,203 fans.
There were three lead changes in the game and the contest featured a seven-goal third period and 87 penalty minutes.
Clarkson (14-13-5 overall, 8-7-3 ECAC Hockey) led 2-0, then wound up falling behind 3-2 and 4-3.
The Golden Knights then scored three straight goals to take a 6-4 lead, which would wind up being the last number of goals counted by the student section:
Quinnipiac (15-10-5, 7-7-4) cut the lead to 6-5 at the 11:56 mark of the second period then tied it with 5:29 left on a goal from Kellen Jones, his third of the contest. Jones then assisted on the game-winning goal just 46 seconds later, which was scored by Loren Barron.
Jake Morley and Louke Oakley both scored two goals for Clarkson. Allan McPherson and Ben Sexton also scored for the Golden Knights and Nick Tremblay had three assists.
