Penn in the Mile High Classic
*After averaging 6.6 goals per game in its first five contests, Penn had scored 30 goals over a three-game span (11 vs. Cornell, 9 at Yale, 10 vs. Brown) before being held to three at Bucknell.
*In its last two Ivy League games, Penn has given up the winning goal with 12 seconds left to lose at Yale and with 11 seconds left to lose at home against Brown.
*Conneely and Schwalje remain the only Penn players to have a point in every game this season. (Savage has a point in eight of the Quakers' nine games including each of the last seven.)
*Sophomore Drew Belinsky had a goal and an assist against Bucknell, the third time in four games he has done that (also Brown and Cornell). Prior to this four-game run, he had just two points in Penn's first five contests.
*Junior Ryan Parietti was shut out on Tuesday at Bucknell, but has two or more points in five of Penn's last seven games.
*Junior defenseman Anthony Santomo had an assist on Tuesday night, his first collegiate point.
*Sophomore Zack Losco had four caused turnovers at Bucknell, giving him a team-leading 15 this season. Santomo has 14 caused turnovers, while sophomore Maxx Meyer has 12 and senior Will Koshansky has 11.
*Meyer leads Penn with 26 ground balls, while Losco has 23.
*McCallion had two assists last Saturday against Brown, his first two points as a collegian.
*Sophomore goalie Brian Feeney -- Danny's twin brother -- tied a career high with 14 saves Tuesday night at Bucknell; he now has a .459 save percentage for the season and a 10.00 goals-against average.
*Junior goalie Brendan Engelke saw his first action of 2012 two weeks ago at Yale, starting the game and playing a half. He had two saves and allowed seven goals.
*Penn finished the 2011 regular season at 8-6, its best overall record since 2006 (10-4), and advanced to the NCAAs for the first time since that 2006 season.
*In Ivy League play, Penn's 4-2 record last year was its best since, you guessed it, 2006. However, the Quakers took second in the Ivy standings, behind Cornell. The last time Penn finished second in the Ivies? Try 1989.
