(AP) Matthew Peca, Jordan Samuels-Thomas and Kevin Bui scored in a 6:26 span in the third period and top-seeded Quinnipiac overcame a two-deficit to beat Canisius 4-3 on Saturday night in the NCAA East Regional semifinals.


The Bobcats, upset in the ECAC semifinals by Brown but still the No. 1 overall seed in the field of 16, will face defending national champion Boston College or Union on Sunday for a spot in the Frozen Four.


Down 3-1, Quinnipiac (28-7-5) cut it to one on Peca's goal at 8:02 of the third period. Samuels-Thomas tied it on a power play with 9:18 to go at 10:42, and Bui beat goalie Tony Capobianco off a rebound with 5:32 left.


Connor Jones had a goal and an assist for the Bobcats.


Stephen Farrell and Duncan McKellar scored 44 seconds apart in the second period for Canisius, and Kyle Gibbons beat Hobey Baker finalist Eric Hartzell at 3:43 of the third. Hartzell stopped McKellar's shot at the final buzzer.


The Golden Griffins, the Atlantic Hockey champs in their first NCAA tournament, finished the season 19-19-5. They had won eight straight.
