Canisius’ men’s hockey team opened the Atlantic Hockey playoffs with a 6-1 loss to No. 8 Bentley at the Bentley Arena in Waltham, Mass., Friday night.
Nick Hutchinson scored the lone goal for the ninth-seeded Golden Griffins (10-19-6), which came early in the third period.
By that point, Canisius was down 5-0 after the Falcons scored twice in the opening period and thrice in the middle period.
Brendan Walkom had two goals to lead Bentley while Jonathan Desbiens had three assists for a team-high three points.
Canisius will look to avoid elimination today when the Griffs take on the Falcons at the Bentley Arena at 7:05 p.m. Should Canisius win, the deciding game would be Sunday.
