BUFFALO -- Halloween may be over, but the Union men's hockey team went full Jekyll-and-Hyde on Saturday.

A day after shutting out winless Canisius 3-0 for their second straight win, the Dutchmen transformed into the ugly shutout victim, losing 4-0 Saturday evening, giving up three goals in a span of less than seven minutes.

Union fell to 2-8-0 for the bus ride back across the state.

All four goal scorers for Canisius (1-4-0), picked to finish last in Atlantic Hockey in the preseason coaches poll, found the back of the net for the first time this season.

Matt Stief gave the Golden Griffins a 1-0 lead at 8:27 of the first period and also had the primary assist on Lee Lapid's goal to make it 3-0 at 11:45 of the third.

Matt Ladd got the start in goal in place of Daniel Urbani, who was on the losing end on Friday, and made 23 saves for the shutout.

Trailing 1-0 heading into the third, the Dutchmen were outshot 13-3 in the period.

There were 32 minutes in penalties handed out in the final 25 seconds of the game.
