NU looks for revenge

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “It’s just the little things, nothing we have to draw up or anything, just a little more intensity, and we should be fine.”

Niagara’s power play is currently converting at a 16 percent clip.

Burkholder is glad tonight’s rematch is at Dwyer, where the Purple Eagles have not lost in 17 games, five short of the program record. Niagara went 22 games without a loss from Feb. 11, 2006 to Nov. 11, 2007.

“It is a new day today, the great news is, we are coming out to a sold out Dwyer Arena, and we have our home streak on the line, and we are playing for a regular season championship,” Burkholder said. “It doesn’t get any more exciting than that.”

Niagara still holds a 12-point lead over the Griffs in the Atlantic standings. More importantly, the first place Purple Eagles still have a nine-point edge over second place Mercyhurst, although the Lakers have a game in hand. Mercyhurst hosted Air Force on Friday night and again tonight.
