Wiseman has 2 goals in Canisius' 5-3 win over top-seeded Niagara in Atlantic Hockey semifinal

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Tyler Wiseman scored twice and set up Duncan McKellar's go-ahead goal in leading Canisius to a 5-3 win over top-seeded Niagara in an Atlantic Hockey Association semifinal on Friday.

Tony Capobianco stopped 38 shots, including all eight in the final period, for the seventh-seeded Golden Griffins (18-18-5), who won their seventh straight. Canisius advances to its first tournament final appearance on Saturday, when it will play either Mercyhurst or Connecticut.

McKellar's power-play goal with 20 seconds left in the second period broke a 3-3 tie. Ben Danford and Cody Freeman also scored for Canisius.

Giancarlo Iuorio scored twice and Hugo Turcotte also scored for the Purple Eagles (23-9-5), who still have an opportunity to earn an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
