Today, the Yellow Jackets played a determined Niagara team and only got a point in the effort. The Purple Eagles made AIC work for every inch of ice, and it showed in the final result. Niagara got two points total in the effort with a shootout win.

“Niagara is really well coached and they play really hard. They are always a tough team to play against and it showed again today.”
On the game he added “The ice is hard this time of year and you have to earn everything.”
On Barriga’s work he added even more, saying “He is the type of player where the bigger the stage, the better he gets so no surprise that some of his best hockey this year has been the past 2 weeks.”
On the special teams aspect, Schneider said “Our PK did a great job today against one of the better power plays in the league.”
Despite their record, this is the same Niagara team that upset Robert Morris last postseason, and one that nearly took out Lang’s group after that. AIC has to play a complete game tomorrow to head into the postseason in two weeks with a win.
