Plattsburgh racked up 65 shots on the afternoon, while Cortland was held to eight. The Cardinals went 4-for-5 with the extra skater, while the Red Dragons (4-13-1, 4-8) were 0-for-2.

The Cardinals return home Wednesday for their final nonconference game of the regular season against Middlebury.

“Earlier in the year, we didn’t have time to prep for (Middlebury) because of our game with Amherst,” Houle said. “This weekend, we have a few days, and we have a lot to prepare for. We’ll have a day off (today), and we’ll be back at it (Monday).”
