* After Amherst went up 5-1, Grillo (pictured) made it a 5-2 game two minutes later, as he tallied his fifth goal of the winter with 5:12 on the clock. Working the puck around the zone, Nick O'Connor sent a pass across the slot to Grillo on the far left post for the open net score.
* Getting back into striking distance, Grillo found nylon for the second time at the 16:55 mark to set the score at 5-3. Executing a set play off the face-off, O'Connor won the draw back to Velan Nandhakumaran who found Grillo down at the bottom of the circle. Quickly moving to net, Grillo deked to his backhand and slid a shot past the outstretched keeper. Nandhakumaran had his first collegiate point.
* The Mules play host to Trinity College at 7 p.m. Friday and then take on Wesleyan University in a 3 p.m. game Saturday.
