Miami Postgame Notes
Miami vs. Providence

Friday, Oct. 19, 2012
Oxford, Ohio - Steve Cady Arena

  • Freshman goaltender Ryan McKay saved 37 of the 38 shots he faced Friday, as well as both shootout attempts. His 37 saves mark a new season high for RedHawk goalies, besting the 24 saves he recorded in the season opener against Colgate. He also faced 15 shots in the first period, which are the most a Miami goalie has seen in a single period this season, stopping 14 of them. The goal allowed by McKay was the first of his career as he pitched a shutout in his first game Oct. 12 against Colgate. His 0.48 GAA is second in the country.

  • Although the game officially ended in a 1-1 tie, both teams agreed to a shootout after a scoreless overtime. Sophomores Austin Czarnik and Cody Murphy each scored goals to help Miami win the unofficial shootout, 2-0. The last time the RedHawks won an official shootout was Nov. 12, 2011 against Michigan.

  • Freshman Riley Barber scored Miami's lone goal, marking the second straight game in which he's scored a goal.

  • Miami was unsuccessful on each of its five power plays on the night, which are the most power play attempts without a goal in a single game this season. On opening night against Colgate, the RedHawks were 0-for-4 with the man advantage but went 3-for-6 the next night.

  • The penalty kill let up its first power play goal on the season when Providence scored at the 5:55 mark of the first period. Miami killed its next two penalties, bringing the penalty kill to 15-for-16 on the season, which is ninth in the NCAA (93.8 percent).

  • Miami has allowed just two goals in three games this season as its 0.67 goals allowed per game average is tops in the NCAA among teams that have played more than one game.

  • Senior Curtis McKenzie played for the first time this year and recorded an assist in his first game back from injury.
