Storrs, Conn. - Junior goaltender Tony Capobianco recorded 36 saves to earn his first shutout of the season in a 3-0 victory for the Canisius College hockey team on Friday night at Connecticut. With the win, the Griffs improve to 4-6-4 on the season and 3-2-2 in Atlantic Hockey play, while the Huskies drop to 4-6-1 and 3-5-0 against league foes.
"We played very well tonight," said Canisius head coach Dave Smith. "We had excellent goaltending and got a huge power-play goal late in the game. In a chippy contest, it sends a message to be ready for tomorrow for another intense battle."
Sophomore Logan Roe matched a career high with two points, netting his first collegiate goal to go along with an assist. Junior Kyle Gibbons and senior Preston Shupe also tallied goals for the Griffs in the winning effort.
Canisius waiting for its reward for offensive progress -

The Canisius Golden Griffins are doing what any coach wants at this point in the season: getting better game by game.
Dave Smith’s squad had a better record at this point last season (4-1-2) than it currently does (2-2-2) but this year it looks like there’s more upside to the Griffs’ chances, especially if a struggling offense can produce to complement the Canisius defense, which is ranked eighth nationally.
“I’ve liked the way we’ve played,” Smith said. “We’ve done a good job defensively. On offense there are a lot of things that we’ve been working on and are doing right but we haven’t been rewarded.”
