Behind six power play goals over two games the Icepack swept the University of Delaware Blue Hens 6-4 and 7-1 to improve to 4-1 on the season and remain unbeaten in ACHA M2 play. Along the way, Pack senior Parker Szarek (Raleigh, NC) and junior Chris Solomon (Clayton, NC) recorded their 100th points. Staying with the theme for the weekend, both goals came on power play goals.
In Friday's 6-4 win, Freshmen Zack Robinson started the Pack off quickly with a wrist shot off a change to put the Pack up 1-0 just two minutes in. The Blue Hens would tie the game quickly off a Darin LeBlanc power play goal. The Pack would respond with two goals to close out the period off Emery Oliver's second of the year and Szarek power play goal for his 100th point. The Hens would tighten the game in the second with a pair of goals while Charles Monteith would bury a breakaway for his first career goal to send the Pack into the break up 4-3. The third would see pair of PPG goals by Solomon and Szarek to stretch the lead to 6-3 before Delaware answered back with one of their own to close out the scoring. Griffin Hunt picked up the win in net turning aside 23 sots.
Game two saw the Pack turn up the pressure on the Blue Hens as they outshot Delaware 45- 20 for the game. Monteith opened up the scoring for the Pack in the first with Alex James adding a second off a highlight feed from Alex Robinson. The second saw the first of three power play goals for the Pack by Riley Johnson to take a 3-1 lead into the third. The pack opened the third with a pair of power play goals by Szarek and Solomon to put the game out of reach. The goal was Solomon's 100th point. Colby Pederson and Matt Miller would round out the scoring in the 7-1 win. Eric Daniel turned aside 19 shots for the win.
