Ignagni, NU hockey shut out RIT

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Leading the Purple Eagles offense were forwards Isaac Kohls, TJ Sarcona and Ryan Rashid, who had a goal each.

Burkholder spoke about his team's collective efforts on the ice and said it was nice for the team to get their legs under them.

“To be able to come back and have a game like we did tonight, we were thorough in all areas,” Burkholder said. “Power play goal, shorthanded goal, five-on-five goal, shutout, we did it all. That was a really good team effort and that is how we need to play. We have a small margin for error."

Defenseman Vince Muto added two assists for Niagara as well.

Defensively, the Purple Eagles cut down the shot angles, closed in on shooters and won the position battle in front of the net.

They blocked 16 shots and were a perfect three-for-three on their penalty killing on the evening.

“I didn’t think we played with enough effort and I didn’t think we played with enough toughness,” said Tigers head coach Wayne Wilson. “I thought we were really sloppy with the puck and we took to many penalties as well.”

The Purple Eagles will travel to Rochester today to take on the Tigers for a rematch in hopes of getting their second win in two days. The game at RIT begins at 7 p.m.
