Clarkson heads to the Tri-State Area

The Men's Hockey Team continues their road trip with a visit to Connecticut and New Jersey to take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats and the Princeton Tigers. The Knights have played five of their last six games on the road and have dropped all five of them. To get back in the thick of the ECAC race, Clarkson needs to take four points this weekend.

Friday night Clarkson will play Quinnipiac at the Northford Ice Pavilion, a rink that has been quoted as being "a dump," and "not a D-1 arena." Fortunately for the Q, they have begun construction on a new ice rink which should be state of the art. The photos of construction can be seen here. However until then Clarkson will be forced to play at Northford.

Quinnipiac is lead by junior defenseman Reid Cashman who in 27 games has 3 goals and 28 assists, which is good enough to lead the ECAC in assists by seven. Cashman is tied for second in the league in points. Quinnipiac's leading goal scorer is freshman David Marshall with 18. Quinnipiac is really looking forward to the development of this freshman class as they look to climb up the ECAC standings. In net Bud Fisher has logged 75% of the teams minutes posting a 2.60 GAA and a .899 save percentage. He has a 11-10-0 record. Quinnipiac is one of four D-1 teams without a tie.

On Saturday, Clarkson heads to Princeton to take on a Tigers team which has a game tomorrow in Pittsburgh against Robert Morris. Princeton had this week off and is coming off an impressive sweep two weeks ago against the league leaders Colgate and Cornell. The Tigers are lead by junior forward Grant Goeckner-Zoeller who in 20 games has tallied 10 goals and 6 assists. Junior netminder Eric Leroux has posted a 4-8-0 record in 12 starts with 2 shutouts. Leroux has a .923 save percentage and a 2.39 GAA. Clarkson has not lost to Princeton since November 14, 1998. A streak spanning 10 games.
