Madison Hockey Blasts Gill St. Bernards 10-1

December 4, 2012 at 1:26 AM

MORRISTOWN, NJ - Hat tricks are a rare feat at any level of ice hockey. Scoring three goals in the first period of game is even more uncommon. Led by captain Erik Anderson and his three-goal first period, the Madison Dodger varsity ice hockey team upended Gill St. Bernards, 10-1, on Tuesday at Mennen Arena.

Six different players scored for the Dodgers in their second win in as many games of the early season. Aside from Erik Anderson, Harrison Meyer added two goals, as did freshman Michael Gleason. Goalie Peter Anderson stopped all but one shot that came his way in the game.

"Our first period, they come out and did what they were supposed to do, dump the puck, shoot the puck," Madison head coach Dave Hansen said. "In the second period everyone was kind of watching. We had five shots on net. For the teams that we have to play in our division, like Mount Olive and Park and all those other teams, if you stop skating, they are going to take advantage of it and they're going to wind up scoring on us. I was very happy with the way we played in the third period, in terms of passing, shooting and crashing the net."

The Dodgers scored five goals in the opening period. Before anyone could get settled, Madison was ahead 3-0.

Erik Anderson started the offensive attack with a goal 51 seconds after the opening face-off, pushing the puck through the legs of the Knights goalie.

Under 45 seconds later, Meyers upped the score to 2-0, before Gleason scored his first goal on a 1-on-1 with the goalie. Gleason lifted the puck over the goalie's left should for his first career goal.

"(Gleason) had a little bit of a rough start yesterday in his first game, but he came out strong today," Erik Anderson said. "He showed what he's about, his skills, and that he can play at this level."

Anderson added two more goals before the first period came to a close with Madison leading 5-0.

Hansen said Erik Anderson is "an exceptional player who makes everyone else better."

After some back-and-forth play to open the second period, Gill St. Bernards erased the shutout when Nick Blackman beat Peter Anderson, putting the score at 5-1. However, Madison took control for the rest of the game, scoring five goals in the last 16 minutes.

Meyer and Gleason each added their second goals of the game during the time frame.

Madison improves to 2-0 with the win. The Dodgers will face Mount Olive on Saturday at Mennen Arena with the opening face-off scheduled for 8:15 p.m.
