ARIZONA STATE 3, OKLAHOMA 0

The No. 15-ranked University of Oklahoma® Hockey club was shut out by No. 9-ranked Arizona State University tonight in Oklahoma City by a score of 3-0. There was no scoring during the first period by either team although there were plenty of chances, including two breakaway opportunities for Sooners forward Matt Pangrac. However, Pangrac was denied by ASU goaltender Kyle Bronsteen both times. In the second period, ASU got on the scoreboard with an unassisted short-handed goal by Justin Hart. Sun Devils forwards Ryan Esner and Joe Ahern scored even-strength goals for ASU in the second to take a 3-0 lead over OU after 40 minutes of action. The Sooners had difficulty matching ASU’s speed and quickness throughout the game and could not get the puck past Bronsteen in the final period. The 3-0 shutout was the first time OU has ever been shutout at home and only the second time ever that OU has been shutout at all, the first time coming earlier in the season when ASU blanked the Sooners 3-0 in Tempe. Both teams were 0 for 6 on the power play tonight. Sooners’ goaltender Aaron Schmeilski stopped just 31 of the 34 Sun Devils shots he faced while ASU goaltender Kyle Bronsteen was a brick wall in net for the Sun Devils, stopping all 21 OU shots he faced.

The Sooners are now 14-10-2 on the season while Arizona State improves to 15-10-0. The Sooners travel to suburban St. Louis next weekend to take on No. 6 Lindenwood University.
