Lennox then found Tia Mitchell late in the game to finish off the scoring as Jillian Long stopped 15 for Niagara and Abby Tardelli 17 for the Ice Storm.

ERA ENDS IN CANTON AS JOE MARSH RETIRES FROM COACHING SLU HOCKEY
Long time St. Lawrence University Head Coach Joe Marsh announced his retirement on Friday afternoon through athletic department press release, citing the time commitment for the continuation of treatment for a condition that prompted him to take a medical leave for the 2011-12 season as the main reason for stepping down.
Marsh compiled a coaching record of 468-399-72 in 26 seasons, the most career victories of any active ECAC coach and became the third coach in NCAA Division I history to accrue more than 400 wins at one institution. He is the seventh coach since 1951 to win multiple Spencer Penrose Awards as the NCAA Division I Hockey Coach of the Year (1989 and 2000) and was ECAC Coach of the Year a record four times.
The school has announced that Greg Carvel will replace Marsh as head coach and that Mike Hurlbut will remain as associate head coach.
The Saints fell in the first round of ECACHL Tournament last week to Dartmouth.
