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 spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
