Prospect Park: Barron’s Goal The Game Winner For Cornell

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

A pretty quiet Saturday night as just three Ranger prospects saw action but Morgan Barron was the hero once again. For the second night in a row, Barron recorded the game-winning goal for his Cornell Big Red.

After going goalless in his first weekend of the season, Morgan Barron collected his third goal of the season to help Cornell defeat Brown 3-2. Barron found a rebound in the slot and fired it past the Brown goalie.

The goal at 17:21 of the second put Big Red up 3-1 and they held off Brown in the third period. In addition to the goal, Barron was a  +1 on five shots and 3-3 on faceoffs. The sophomore forward is second on the team in scoring with a 3-1-4 after four games.

The win gives Cornell a 2-2 record on the season (2-0 in both the ECAC and Ivy League). Big Red hits the road for a weekend series at Northern Michigan next week.

K’Andre Miller (Wisconsin Badgers)

K’Andre Miller and his Wisconsin Badgers dropped a heartbreaking 3-2 overtime to 15th-ranked North Dakota. Miller had a primary assist on Wisconsin’s second goal when his shot from the point was deflected in. The goal at 3:19 of the third period gave Wisconsin at the time a 2-1 lead.

For Miller, the assist was his sixth of the season and his eighth overall point. Miller was also a +2 which improved him to a +9 which is eighth best in the NCAA (as well as team-leading).

Tyler Nanne and his eighth-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers dropped a 2-1 decision to fourth-ranked Minnesota State. Nanne was scoreless on one shot but had a game-high six blocked shots. Minnesota has dropped three straight games to fall to 1-3-1.
