Miami Hockey blanks Canisius, 3-0
Updated: Saturday, November 2 2013, 01:14 AM EDT
OXFORD, Ohio (WKRC)-- Alex Wideman scored two goals and Ryan McKay turned aside all 20 shots he faced to lift the No. 5/6 Miami hockey team to a 3-0 win over Canisius on Friday night.
The RedHawks move to 4-2-1 with the win, snapping a brief two-game winless streak in the process.
McKay made 11 solid saves in a first period that saw the RedHawks shorthanded twice in the first few minutes. The Golden Griffins (1-3) took eight of the first 11 shots of the game, but MU weathered the storm. Miami’s power play got on the board with 3:52 remaining in the opening stanza. Canisius won a race to the puck in the corner, but its failed clearing attempt was grabbed by Wideman, who flung a wrist shot through traffic for his third goal of the year.
That tally sent MU to the locker room with a one-goal lead, though CC finished the period with an 11-8 edge in shots.
After killing 41 seconds of a carryover power play, the RedHawks got to business in the second period, one that saw them outshoot the Golden Griffins 14-4. MU opened up a two-goal bulge just under eight minutes into the period by turning defense into transition offense. Anthony Louis blocked Ben Danford’s point shot, one that broke Danford’s stick. Louis settled the puck and pushed the play in transition before finding Wideman, who picked a corner for his second of the night to make it a 2-0 contest going into the final intermission.
The third period saw more territorial domination by MU, with the Red and White outshooting the Golden Griffins 18-5 in the final frame. Blake Coleman capped the scoring at the 7:02 mark when he cashed in for his sixth of the season off a creative play by Matthew Caito. Caito ripped a slapper intentionally wide of the net off the high glass in the corner and the puck bounced straight to Coleman in the slot for the goal. Alex Gacek also assisted on the play.
After being outshot 11-8 in the opening frame, the RedHawks picked things up in the final 40 minutes of play and allowed only nine more shots the rest of the way. MU finished up with a 40-20 edge in shots, including 32-9 in the final 40 minutes. Coleman led all players with nine shots on goal and Wideman’s two goals tied his career high.
The RedHawks were strong on special teams, finishing 1-for-3 on the power play and killing off all three of the Golden Griffins’ tries with the man advantage.
McKay’s 20 saves earned him his fifth-career shutout and his first this season. CC’s Keegan Asmundson stopped 37 of 40 shots at the other end of the rink.
Miami closes out its weekend series against Canisius on Saturday night. Opening faceoff is at 7:05 p.m.
