LEWISTON --  Welcome to the third and final regular season matchup between Canisius and Niagara on the ice. Niagara leads the season series 1-0-1 after picking up a 4-1 win Tuesday in the Buffalo State Ice Arena. But mind you -- the home team is winless in the last six meetings between the two teams.

Tony Capobianco will start in goal for Canisius. The sophomore has a 2.91 goals against average this year and has been splitting time with senior Dan Morrison, who took the loss on Tuesday.

For Niagara, expect senior Chris Noonan to get the start. His 1.72 goals against ranks second best in the country.
