FRASER, Mich. — Senior Todd Bisson scored two goals, including the game-winner three minutes into overtime to give Canisius a 2-1 victory over Wayne State on Saturday night at the Fraser Ice Arena.
Bisson took a chip pass from freshman Joe D’Urzo along the left boards and delivered a slap shot from inside the blue line that beat Warriors’ goalie Marc Carlson inside the right goalpost.
After a scoreless first period, Wayne State (1-4-0) jumped on the scoreboard at the 10:05 mark of the second period on a goal by Jarrett Gibbons that slipped by the right side of Canisius goalie junior Sean Weaver. The Ice Griffs were unable to take advantage of a late power play in the second period and the Warriors took a 1-0 lead into the third period.
Wayne State’s goal held up until late in the third period, when junior Corey Lucas won a faceoff to the left of Carlson and sophomore Marc Bouffard slid a pass in the slot to Bisson, who beat Carlson in the top right corner to tie the score.
Weaver stymied the Warriors throughout the evening, making 24 saves for the win. Carlson turned away 16 Canisius shots in the loss for Wayne State.
