Milford, CT - Sacred Heart and the University of Connecticut will face-off in a home and home men's ice hockey series this weekend. The opener is set for Thursday night at 7:00 at the Milford Ice Pavilion with the rematch Friday night in Storrs. The Pioneers enter the weekend at 8-4-1 overall and 6-3-1 in Atlantic Hockey. Meanwhile the Huskies are 4-7-1 and 3-6-1 in the conference.
The Pioneers and Huskies renew the battle for state bragging rights this weekend as they meet in a home-and-home series that closes out the Pioneers conference slate for the calendar year. The Pioneers are coming off a 2-1 setback Sunday against Army which snapped their three game winning streak. Connecticut split a pair of games with American International last weekend, losing the opener before taking the back end by a 2-1 score. The Huskies have lost three of their last four games overall.
