SCRANTON, PA (Saturday, January 29, 2011) In a dominant show of force on Saturday afternoon, the Midshipmen walked away with a crucial conference win against Scranton, winning 8-0.

Navy made their intentions clear from the initial puck drop, as Tom Krysil put the first points on the board less than a minute into the game.  Krysil used the Scranton defender as a screen to shield a shot that flew past the Scranton goalie. Doug Dietrich soon added his own contribution, opting for brute strength as opposed to finesse, ripping a high slap shot to the far side for a goal.  Sam Carlson scored the third goal of the period.  Going into the first intermission, it was evident the Mids had no intentions of letting up.

Carlson picked up the next goal late in the second period, and Steve Csutoros and Tom Fick each added a goal before the period ended, building the Navy lead to 6-0. After additional goals by Krysil and Jim Tumolo in the third period, Scranton's fate was sealed.

Navy goalie Andrew Mills played his usual role in the Mids' success, keeping the game close early on before Navy obtained a substantial lead.  When all was said and done, Mills had recorded 43 saves for his first ever shut-out for Navy, indicating that Scranton had their share of chances on offense but were time and again turned away by the now unsurprising excellence of Navy's young netminder.

These in-conference points are now more important than ever for Navy, now 17-9-1 (8-3-1 in conference play), as they fight an intensely close battle in the ECHA for the second place spot and a coveted first round bye in the playoffs.

Navy seeks a little revenge this upcoming weekend as they take on Lebanon Valley at home at McMullen Ice Arena on Friday night at 7:30 PM.
