FITCHBURG –  Framingham State sophomore Kaleb Kinskey (Dike, Ill.) settled a feed from senior Jacob Garman (Anchorage, Alaska) and proceeded to deposit the puck inside the near post for his first collegiate tally in the 8th minute of overtime to break a scoreless tie and send the #7 seeded Rams past the #2 seed Fitchburg State in the first round of the MASCAC Tournament Saturday evening at Wallace Arena in Fitchburg.  

The loss ends the Falcons season at 17-6-1.

The win advances the rams, who are now 3-21-1 overall.


  • In the middle stanza, Fitchburg State nearly took the lead midway through the frame as freshman Toivo Kramer and junior Rece Bergeman put back-to-back shots on frame, but Framingham State keeper Blake Carlson was able to deny both shots to keep the contest scoreless going into the third period. 
  • In the third period of play, The Falcons threatened when junior Gene Bouthiette fired a shot the Carlson turned aside, while in the winding second, Rams junior Cam Lindsay skated in on a breakaway attempt, but Fitchburg State goaltender Brian McGrath made a sprawling save to send the game into overtime. 
  • In the overtime period, Fitchburg State nearly broke the 0-0 deadlock 4:16 into the stanza with Bergeman one timing a shot that Carlson just got a piece of. Two minutes later Framingham State capitalized on the Kinskey goal to send the Rams to the MASCAC semifinals.  
  • Fitchburg State held a 40-20 edge in shots 
  • Framingham State went 0-for-4 with the man advantage 
  • McGrath stopped 19 shots for the Falcons 
  • Carlson made 40 saves for the Rams 

UP NEXT:  Falcons conclude the 2021-22 season this evening. Rams will travel to Plymouth State on Tuesday to take on the Panthers in the MASCAC Semifinals.
