The Niagara men’s hockey team (0-7-1, 0-0-0 CHA) played the No. 19 UMass Minutemen (6-1-0, 3-1-0 Hockey East) tight, but two late goals gave the Minutemen the 4-2 victory on Program Pioneers Day at Dwyer Arena.

On a day where Niagara was honoring the 1999-00 team that earned the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth, the Purps came out strong early. Senior Chris Moran (Buffalo, N.Y.), sent a pass low to fellow senior Ryan Olidis (Uxbridge, Ont.), who went behind the net and found senior Egor Mironov (Thornhill, Ont.) on the doorstep for the 1-0 lead six minutes into the first period.

  • Posted on November 8, 2009 at 9:08 am

It’s the bye week for the Buffalo Bills, and no matter how comforting the fact that the Bills cannot lose this weekend is, a weekend without Bills football is still kind of a drag. We’ll equip you for the weekend ahead with prediction and open game threads for Week 9 football, but as it’s still only Saturday (the first week of a two-week layoff is always the longest), we’ll table that for the day and instead focus on taking a peek at the rest of the Bills’ schedule this season. The short version: as usual, the Bills have some very tough matchups.
