Rutgers Hockey travels to #23 URI for a weekend series at The Boss.

Rutgers Hockey vs URI

"The Boss".  A term that would render two completely different meanings for a New Jersian and a Rhode Islander.  Ask a Jersey guy (or gal) what 'The Boss' is and you'll end up with some rock n' roll.  Ask the same question to someone from Rhode Island, and you'll probably be directed to the home ice for the URI Rams.  'The Boss' Arena saw Rutgers and URI split the weekend series at one game a piece.  

Friday's 7pm puck drop saw the Knights focused, and getting to work on their second semester opener.  URI entered the game riding a 10-game winning streak that began in the first semester.  Rutgers went on top early with a goal from Tim Bizub; apples to Nick Holowko and Griffin Privatera.  URI would later tie the game with four minutes left in the second period.  Rutgers' game winning goal would come two minutes later from an unlikely hero.  With with time ticking away in the second period, Junior CJ Maksut would net the GWG in his first game back from injury.  CJ was sidelined for the entire first half of the season with a broken leg.  Rutgers would go on to win the game by a final score of 2-1, snapping URI's 10-game winning streak.

Saturday's 4pm matinee tilted in favor of Rhody, despite the Scarlet Knights striking first.  Rutgers went ahead 2-1 at the end of the first period thanks to goals from Vinny Addeo and Tyler Mishchenko.  URI would score three unanswered goals over the last two periods of the game, claiming a 4-2 victory.  

Rutgers Hockey hits the ice again this weekend against Ohio University.  Join the Ice Knights at Codey Arena in West Orange, NJ for a 'home away from home' series on Friday Jan 20th at 7pm, and Saturday Jan 21 at 5:30pm.  We'll see you on the ice.
