Villanova Scores Four of Last Five to Upend No. 4 Syracuse

Orange junior Dominic Lamolinara (Arnold, Md.) received his second straight starting nod and totaled a career-best 12 saves.

Carlson recorded five saves for the Wildcats. His only stop of the fourth quarter was a big one as he made a point-blank save on Maltz with 3:46 remaining to keep it a one-goal game.

The Orange returns home on Friday, March 29 to host Canisius in the Carrier Dome. Faceoff is slated for 7:00 p.m. on Time Warner Cable Sports Channel.

Game Notes: The loss was the Orange's first at Villanova Stadium ... The Orange is now 4-1 there (3-1 against Villanova and 1-0 versus St. John's) ... Senior defenseman Brian Megill (Clark, N.J.) picked up five ground balls, the 10th time in his career he's achieved that feat ... Syracuse tied its season high with 10 caused turnovers.
