Miami (OH) nets with an empty net, falls short

DI Men's Hockey: Providence gets it done

With more than 12 minutes remaining on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Miami (Ohio) coach Enrico Blasi saw his Red Hawks down 6-2 and decided to do something a little out of the ordinary.

Blasi pulled goalie Ryan McKay and put an extra skater on, leaving an empty net. This is something that is usually reserved for one- or two-goal deficits in the final (at most) one-to-five minutes of the game.

The desperate Red Hawk offsense, with an extra skater on, scored three goals to cut the difference down to just a single goal.

The Red Hawk defense went nearly eight minutes without allowing an empty net goal, including a full extension diving play by Louie Belpedio on a rolling puck headed for a wide open net.

McKay ended up with 4:02 of ice time after he was initially pulled with 12:48 remianing, making two more saves.

Providence broke free in the final seconds and scored an emepty netter at the :07 mark to seal it.
