RIT falls short at Canisius, 5-3

RIT freshman forward Caleb Moretz (Fairbanks, AK/Flin Flon Bombers) notched a pair of third-period power play goals to help bring the Tigers back from a 3-0 deficit, but it was host Canisius scoring twice in the final minute of regulation to earn a 5-3 victory in Atlantic Hockey action, Saturday, at the Harborcenter.
