Clarkson had a different practice schedule than usual today so the only video interview is with coach Casey Jones.
The Golden Knights (1-4-4 overall, 1-0-1 ECAC Hockey) opened conference play last weekend with a 1-0 win at Yale and a 3-3 tie at Brown. Clarkson extended its undefeated streak to five games (1-0-4).
This weekend the Golden Knights have their conference home openers, facing Quinnipiac (5-3-1, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Friday and Princeton (2-2, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Saturday.
In today's interview Jones discussed junior Jarrett Burton, who leads the team with five goals, and freshman Greg Lewis, who has built his save percentage up to .910. He also discussed this weekend's opponents:
A Look at Quinnipiac
The Bobcats have gotten off to a bit of a strange start this season.
When Quinnipiac scores at least two goals it has a perfect 5-0 record. But if the Bobcats score one or less they are 0-3-1. For the most part Quinnipiac has played solid defense this season, allowing only 17 goals in nine games. The Bobcats gave up five goals to Colgate in a nonconference game and allowed four goals to Robert Morris. But in every other game they have allowed two goals or less.
Jeremy Langlois leads the team with four goals and three assists and Clay Harvey has seven assists. Defenseman Loren Barron has two goals and two assists. Goalie Eric Hartzell is 5-2-1 with a 1.62 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage.
Quinnipiac is just 2 of 41 on the power play (4.9 percent) but has killed 37 of 38 penalties.
Highlights of last weekend's Bobcat games:
vs. Colgate, 3-2 win in OT
vs. Cornell, 4-1 win
Allan McPherson has two goals and two assists against the Bobcats and Adam Pawlick has scored two goals against Quinnipiac.
A Look at Princeton
The Tigers are in their second season under former St. Lawrence University player and assistant coach Bob Prier.
Princeton opened the year with a pair of home exhibition losses to Guelph, each by one goal. The Tigers also lost a pair of one-goal games against Brown and Yale in nonconference contests.
But Princeton opened ECAC Hockey play with a 5-3 win at home against Cornell last Friday and followed that with a 4-0 win over Colgate on Saturday.
Andrew Calof leads the team with three goals and four assists and Tyler Maugeri has three goals and two assists. Mike Condon is 2-2 with a 2.01 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage.
Princeton is 5 of 18 on the power play (27.8 percent) and has killed 16 of 18 penalties.
Allan McPherson has two goals and two assists against the Tigers and Adam Pawlick has two goals and one assist.
A familiar face will be on the Tigers bench on Saturday as former Clarkson forward Tim Marks, who graduated in 2010, is a volunteer assistant with the Tigers.
Marks is a Brownville native and attended General Brown High School near Watertown. He played two years with Norfolk in the American Hockey League and also played for Elmira in the East Coast Hockey League.
Here is an interview with Marks from his senior season:
