@NiagaraUHockey - With his 65 minutes of shutout play tonight, Jackson Teichroeb now has an active shutout streak of 140:21.
Teichroeb is also the first Purple Eagle with shutouts in consecutive games since Carsen Chubak did so on November 3 and November 9, 2012.
@NiagaraUHockey - Nick Farmer finds Stanislav Dzakhov on the power play! A quick one-time goal from the left wing to make it 3-1! Time Of Goal - 13:44 of the third period.
LaxSabre - Final Score - American International College 3 Niagara 1 - Niagara now 2-9-3 - 2-4-2 AHC.
Niagara returns home next weekend with a pair of games against RIT. Both games - Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3 - are scheduled for a 7:35 pm ET start.
Fridays game is scheduled to be televised LIVE on both Time Warner Cable Sports Channel Buffalo and Time Warner Cable Sports Channel Rochester.
@NiagaraUHockey - We're doing a Teddy Bear Toss at Saturday's game vs @RITMHKY! Bring a teddy bear and toss it on the ice when we score our first goal!
(LaxSabre - Hopefully they do better than the Buffalo Beauts did earlier this season - they were shutout and had to throw their stuff animals after the game ended.)
(Update - They did do better than the Beauts - even scored the first goal of the game. Unfortunately for the Purple Eagles - they went on to lose the game 6-2 to the Tigers.)
Not sure I've ever heard an announcer say anything as far off the mark as the PBP guy tonight comparing RIT's system to trap era New Jersey's.
And I have to suffer through John D'Tullio as RIT's TV announcer.
Some fortunate bounces (and poor Niagara goaltending) for sure tonight, but they were also clearly the better team - as they have been almost every night in Atlantic Hockey play. Might have been a little bit of an overreaction pulling Teichroeb after that awful 3rd goal. A timeout might have been the smarter course of action.
