Bob Tallarico gets MIAC hockey honor
January 7, 2002
St. Thomas goaltender Bob Tallarico (JR-West St. Paul/Henry Sibley) was named MIAC Player of the Week in men's hockey Monday. It's the second time this season he's received the MIAC honor.
Tallarico got a win as a starter and one off the bench in the Toms' two weekend victories over UW-Eau Claire and Stevens Point.
In Friday's 4-2 win over the Blugolds, he stopped 21 of 23 shots. In Saturday's 5-4 win over Point, he came on at 3:14 of period one and UST trailing 2-1 and stopped 32 of the next 34 shots in the last 57 minutes.
Tallarico has allowed just 14 goals in his nine victories. The Toms are 12-3 overall, including a 5-0 mark in December vs. NCHA teams.
