Men’s Hockey: Tigers pick up 4th win
The men’s hockey team broke its six-game losing streak on Friday when it took down Rensselaer. The Tigers had lost to Rensselaer during their losing streak but played much better at home to claim their fourth win of the season. The Engineers got on the board first in the first period, but the Tigers tied the game up just over a minute later. After a scoreless second period, the Tigers took the lead on a goal by sophomore left wing Mike Ambrosia. The Tigers’ success with power plays was a crucial part of the game as they converted their only power-play opportunity and successfully killed all four of the Engineers’ power-play chances. The Tigers were unable to build on their momentum the following day, however, as they lost to No. 4 Union 3-0 for the second time this season. Freshman goaltender Colton Phinney made a career-high 45 saves in the loss.
D’Angelo Italian Market chosen to cater NFL’s VIP Super Bowl Tailgate
Local institution D’Angelo Italian Market will cater the NFL’s official VIP Tailgate before Super Bowl XLVIII. The restaurant was chosen after an NFL committee sampled food from D’Angelo and many other eateries throughout the New Jersey/New York area in preparation for the Super Bowl, which will be played at the Meadowlands Feb. 2. The event will be so exclusive that the NFL has asked D’Angelo not to disclose what its menu will be and a limited number of caterers will be allowed entrance.
