NCAA Hockey: Air Force Falcons Hockey Looks To Get Back On Track After Ice Breaker Tournament Losses

The Air Force Falcons began their hockey season last week as a participant in the 2011 Ice Breaker Tournament, but they left the tournament with two losses and zero victories. The Falcons led both games, but coughed up the lead to North Dakota and Michigan State in the third period of each game.

Now the Falcons are back from Grand Forks, N.D., and ready to start Atlantic Hockey conference play. They open the home schedule with a game against the Niagara Purple Eagles. The Eagles are finishing a three-game road trip out west with the visit to Colorado Springs.

Niagara dropped the first game to the Michigan Wolverines, 5-0, and then tied the Rochester Institute of Technology, 0-0. Goalie Cody Campbell made 30 saves in the tie against the RIT Tigers.

The Falcons saw Casey Kleisinger score two goals the previous week while goalie Jason Torf allowed six goals and made 42 saves.

The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. MT.
