Make it two in a row for the Nipissing Lakers men’s hockey team.

Brent Moran was perfect in net and two third period goals led Nipissing to the victory – their second straight.

After two scoreless periods, Danny Desrochers scored what turned out to be the game-winner shorthanded early in the third.

Deverick Ottereyes added the empty-netter late in the period to seal the victory.

Moran was great, turning aside 34 shots for the win and shutout.
