The Weekend Has Arrived

And what a weekend it is for both the men's and women's hockey teams.

The ladies are at home with a big weekend against Quinnipiac and Princeton - games they need to win if they want to be at home for the quarterfinals, considering that they're currently tied with both of them for 4th place in the ECAC. With both teams almost certain to take two points against Union, the Engineers need to limit their weekends to just 2 points. If they can complete the weekend sweep and run their win streak to 4 in a row and 5 of 6, they'll be alone in third place, trailing only Clarkson and Cornell. The remainder of the schedule is tough indeed - these are points they need, for sure.

Meanwhile, the men hit the road for a night and day weekend with Brown and Yale. The Brown game is a must-win - teams have been taking points from the Bears all season, and the Tute needs to keep pace by following suit. Yale is a different story. The two points the Engineers earned on Black Friday are much more rare. We can't expect much facing the #6 Bulldogs, but we weren't expecting much back in November either. Points in New Haven will be a huge bonus. Let's go get them.

Let's let it rock. Time to bring the fire.
