CANTON, N.Y. - Junior goaltender Christoffer Hernberg (Espoo, Finland) posted 27 saves for his first career shutout to help the No. 19 UMass Lowell Hockey team complete a weekend sweep in the North Country with a 5-0 victory at St. Lawrence on Saturday night in non-conference play at Appleton Arena.

The River Hawks improve to 3-3 overall with the win, while the Saints drop to 0-6-0 with the after the loss.

"It's so important on the road to get off to a good start, it increases your chances to be successful," said Head Coach Norm Bazin. "I thought Chris Hernberg was solid last night and he played even better tonight under a lot of pressure."

Senior forward Jake Kamrass (Atlanta, Ga.) opened the scoring in the game with a back door goal just 1:43 into the contest.

UMass Lowell exploded with a four-goal second period, which included a pair of power play goals by Chris Forney (Thief River Falls, Minn.), a one-timer from the point and Kamrass' second goal of the night, which was a wrister from the top of the left circle. Ryan Collins and Kenny Hausinger (Anchorage, Alaska) also added goals in the middle stanza for the River Hawks. Hausinger finished the night with 3 points (1g,2a).

Hernberg earned his third consecutive start and made 11 saves in the final period. St. Lawrence's Arthur Brey recorded eight saves in the loss playing the first 29:31, while Daniel Mannella came in relief for the Saints, playing the final 30:16 and making four saves.

UMass Lowell finished the night 2-for-5 on the power play. Sophomore forward Ryan Lohin (Chadds Ford, Pa.) amassed three assists in the victory.

Redshirt junior Keith Burchett (Chicago, Ill.) and freshman defenseman Jonathan Waring (Farmington Hills, Mich.) made their debuts for the River Hawks in the game. Burchett led the team with nine faceoff wins to go along with a 75% percentage.
