TORONTO - Troy Passingham stopped 23 shots for his second shutout of the season as the Ryerson Rams men's hockey team won its third straight game with a 3-0 win over the visiting Toronto Varsity Blues on Thursday night.

With the victory, the Rams (10-8-3) move into a tie with the Blues (10-8-3) for sixth place in the OUA East. The Rams also lead the season series against their downtown rivals with a record of 2-1. The teams will meet one more time at George Bell Arena on February 5.

Boxscore

Norwich University transfer Matt McCann, playing in his first game as a Ram, opened the scoring on a shorthanded tally with just under five minutes remaining in the first period. McCann skated the puck up the ice on a 3-on-1 and instead of passing, fired the puck past Toronto goaltender Garrett Sheehan.

The Rams held the 1-0 lead until the final minute of the middle frame when Victor Terreri banged in a loose puck past Sheehan for his first in a Rams uniform, giving the home side a 2- 0 advantage after 40 minutes.

Winger David Harris would add an insurance marker midway through the third period. After Jason Kelly won the face-off toward the boards, Harris would fire a shot past a screened Sheehan.

Ryerson was 0-for-7 on the power play, while Toronto was 0-for-10 with the man advantage. Sheehan stopped 17 of 20 shots in a losing cause for the Blues.

The Rams will try for their fourth victory in a row Friday at Royal Military College (RMC).
