As Terry Zeh has done many times in his illustrious nine year coaching the women’s team at Canisius College, he had his girls really prepared and on their A game to bounce back after losing their last 4 contest today. In the latest edition of the Play4Kay series the lady Griffs defeated the Loyola Greyhounds 48-39 at the Koessler Athletic Center this afternoon. Canisius’s defense was stifling all afternoon long as they held the Greyhounds to 24% shooting from the floor for the game and 11% from 3. The Greyhounds only had 2 double digit scores for the game.

When the lockout ended, Adam Pardy helped the Amerks ease the pain of losing top defenseman T.J. Brennan and Joe Finley. During a five game winning streak, the 28 year-old veteran defenseman continually got the puck out and helped steady things in front of goalie David Leggio. The Sabres noticed and now he’s back in Buffalo. This time there is no replacement, but that’s life in the AHL.
