Bub's power play goal lifts Eagles past Jets

"We're just not connecting," said Hudak. "I don't know if we have to move the lines around to change it up a little bit - we've done all that. We're going to figure something out."

A penalty against Shaker/Colonie's Chris Cusack at the end of the second period gave Bethlehem the break it was looking for. One minute into the third period, Mike Barba sent a pass from behind the net to Bub, who buried a shot between Jets goaltender Jim Lanne's legs to put the Eagles ahead.

Caswell made the one-goal lead stand up. The senior turned aside several Shaker/Colonie scoring chances in the third period to seal the victory.

"T.J.'s been outstanding in the last couple of games," Hughes said of Caswell, who finished with 20 saves. "He's been very steady and works very hard. He's a solid team player, and he's given us chances to win."

It was only the second league victory for Bethlehem since New Year's Day, but Hughes said he sees some promising signs.

"We had a great start to the season, and we seem to be picking things up again," he said. "We played some Division I teams and have been very competitive lately."

Bethlehem entered the game off a 6-0 non-league victory over Plattsburgh Friday at the Beth-lehem Area YMCA. The Eagles scored twice in the first period and added three goals in the third period to seal the win.

Stephen Russo had a goal and two assists to lead Bethlehem's offense. Eric Halek, Kyle Barach and Emmet Dalton each added a goal and an assist.""
