DARIEN — It’s hard to win a game from the penalty box. And though previously unbeaten Notre Dame-West Haven was confident in its ability at five-on-five, Darien took advantage when the Green Knights handed it power plays Saturday night at the Darien Ice House.
Sam Erickson’s hat trick paced the No. 3 Blue Wave past No. 1 Notre Dame 5-2, leaving no one unbeaten in Division I in what could be a year full of boys hockey parity.
