VULCAN RECAP:  The Vulcans return home after fighting their way to a tie in Buffalo against Daemen College.  Early in the first period the Vulcans surrendered two quick goals to spot Daemen a 2-0 lead.  After closing the door for the remaining 50 minutes the Vulcans scored just under the halfway mark in the third period to make it 2-1.  In a last ditch attempt they pulled goaltender Tallen Stroman for an extra attacker which paid off as the Vulcans Brad Folino scored to secure the tie.
