NU hockey drops regular season finale, 4-1

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Chris Lochner scored the only goal for Niagara, which outshot the Cadets 35-23. Niagara freshman goaltender Jackson Teichroeb made his fourth consecutive start and recorded 19 saves.

Ben Carey had two goals for Air Force, defenseman Adam McKenzie had a goal and two assists while Jason Torf made 34 stops. The Cadets finished at 15-9-3 in conference play and 20-12-4 overall. Air Force has won 20 or more games in five of the past seven seasons.

Before the game, Air Force coach Frank Serratore said a club with momentum could do well in the conference tournament. Niagara senior defenseman Kevin Ryan concurred, and said his team has it.

“Obviously we would have liked a couple of more points in there (the 6-4-2 stretch) with how well we have been playing,” Ryan said. “We have momentum going in. We are playing our style of hockey, which is

the biggest thing for having momentum.

“When you are confident that your style of hockey is working, and the guy next to you….that is the biggest thing.”

After the game, Burkholder was not happy about Kohls’ injury.

“It was a really bad hit to the head that wasn’t called,” he said. “We need to take that out of the game.”

NOTES: Before the game, seniors Rashid, Matt Williams, Ryan and Patrick Divjak were honored. Divjak’s baby was also on the ice for the ceremony……Niagara’s TJ Sarcona was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for contact to the head at 4:55 of the second period..……Niagara defenseman Kevin Albers, who played in 28 games including Friday night, was listed as a scratch.
