Fresh­man Daniel Winslow jammed in the first goal of his col­le­giate ca­reer af­ter a scrum in front of the RPI net five min­utes into the game.

Odeen Tufto added a pow­er­play goal, his sixth, mid­way through the sec­ond pe­riod.

Priskie wristed a shot from just in­side the blue line through traf­fic and past Lin­den Marshall to cap the scor­ing in the third pe­riod. It was Priskie’s sev­enth goal and it came on the power play. Priskie and Tufto are tied with Bran­don For­tu­nato for the team-lead with 10 points.

Quin­nip­iac (7-1, 2-1) was 2-for-9 on the power play, while RPI was 0-for-6 with the man ad­van­tage.
