Six weeks and counting for the Niagara hockey team.
The Purple Eagles (10-3-4, 9-0-1 in Atlantic Hockey) earned a No. 18 ranking in the latest USCHO.com Division I poll, the sixth straight week Niagara has been in the national rankings. NU remains ranked after seeing its nation leading 12-game unbeaten streak end last Saturday with a 3-0 loss at Bowling Green.
The Purple Eagles host Air Force at 7 p.m. Saturday at Dwyer Arena, looking to extend their home ice unbeaten streak to 14 games.
