Niagara Gazette — Chubak is now 8-1-3 on the season and has made 385 saves. He holds the top spot in the nation in shutouts (five), save percentage (.970) and goals-against average (0.99), and his winning percentage of .792 places him ninth nationally.
Niagara is currently on a nine-game unbeaten streak, which is tied for the longest in the nation with Boston College (9-0-0), the top-ranked team in the USCHO.com Poll. In seven AHA contests, NU has outscored its opponents by a 24-3 margin which is the fewest tallies allowed in conference play in the nation. The Purple Eagles are ranked third in the nation in combined special teams (58.1) and their powerplay is currently slated in the eight spot in the nation (89.4).
The USCHO.com Poll consists of 50 voters, including 28 coaches from the Division I conferences and 22 beat writers and sports professionals from across the country. The poll, published weekly by the Associated Press, is a production of USCHO.com, which provides in-depth coverage of college hockey.
Niagara returns to the ice on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 when the Purple Eagles welcome AHA foe Sacred Heart to Dwyer Arena.
