The Griffs extended their nation leading unbeaten streak to 14 games with a 5-2 win over Niagara, completing the season sweep over their rivals.

Felix Chamberland scored twice, while Dylan McLaughlin, Casey Jerry and Nick Hutchison each found the back of the net once.

McLaughlin opened the scoring a little more than six minutes in the opening period, banging home a rebound to put Canisius up 1-0.

Later in the period on the man advantage, after having a goal wiped off the board, Hutchison found the back of the net to make it a 2-0 game.

Stephen Pietrobon, who scored both goal for Niagara, pulled the Purple Eagles within 2-1 with a goal just before the end of the first 20 minutes.

The Griffs wrap up the regular season Thursday, when they host Mercyhurst.
