Hockey Closes November With Sweep of Canisius
The Army West Point Hockey team completed the Thanksgiving weekend sweep with a 3-2 win over Canisius at Key Bank Arena on Saturday.
For the second day in a row, the Black Knights had to withstand a comeback effort from the gritty Golden Griffins, and just like Friday night, Eric Butte closed the show with a game winning goal in the third period.
Four of the game's five goals were scored in a track meet of a second period, with Army netting the game's first two goals and Canisius scoring the next two.
