continued Chiara thought he had a hat trick later in the third period when he launched a shot that seemed to tuck underneath the crossbar before bouncing out, but the referee ruled that it hit the pipe and waved off the goal. That proved to be only a brief reprieve for N/S, as Sean Leach scored less than 30 seconds after Chiara's shot to give the Jets a 6-0 lead.
Mrazik finished the third period with 17 saves, but the Mohawks offense did little to help him. N/S managed only one shot that reached S/C goaltender Kodi Riddell in the final 15 minutes.
Riddell registered 11 saves to pick up the shutout for S/C, which advances to Friday's semifinal round against No. 2 Shenendehowa at Clifton Park Arena.
