Sweeping two games when you
fall behind is nice, just stop
needing to comeback!
I expected that Mercyhurst would play UB close, I thought The Bonnies would play above themselves but I did not see UB trailing, badly, in either game. Despite two games in which UB fell behind 2-0 (Saint Bonaventure) and 3-0 (Mercyhurst) the Bulls managed to nail down both of their games. With Robert Morris tripping up UB has now managed to close within a few
Friday against the Bonnies UB needed to shut down Marchiori and Piegay, and for the most part they did just that. While Piegay managed a goal and an assist to help the Bonnies build up a 2-0 lead early in the second his counterpart forward Luke Marchiori was completely shut out. On the UB side the six Goals were scored by six different Bulls and netminder Michael Ehlers played very well stopping 38 of 40 shots.

The following day was the more important one of the weekend, when UB took a trip south of the state line for their second match in as many weeks against MercyHurst. Against the Cyclones everything started wrong. After a first period devoid of penalties in which the cyclones jumped out to a 2-0 lead UB finally got a chance with the advantage early in the second. Mercyhurst would take that chance and score their own shorthanded goal.
Buffalo would crawl back into the game until they managed to tie with a short handed goal of their own when at the 3:42 stellar rookie defense man Andrew Blocho beat Cyclone goaltender Robert Kelley.
Rich Latona would stop 40 of 44 shots and hold for the shootout victory.
