Buffalo State outshot the Seahawks 13-4 in the opening period, but was unable to light the lamp. Casey Bull (Lockport, NY/Lockport) finally broke the scoreless tie in the second frame with an assist from Melissa Jeckovich (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls), but Salve Regina netted a power-play goal midway through the third to knot the score.
Buffalo State held a 30-20 advantage in shots for the game. Shannon Anesetti (Canonsburg, PA/Canon-McMillan) made 19 saves for the Bengals.
Buffalo State will visit Connecticut College on Friday for the first of a two-game set at 7 p.m.
