Fairfield, CT - The Sacred Heart Pioneers men's ice hockey team will usher in the new year with a road trip to Watertown, MA for a meeting with Atlantic Hockey rival Bentley Tuesday night. Face off at John Ryan Arena is set for 7:30 pm.
The Pioneers and Falcons meet for the third time this season. The Falcons took three out of a possible four points when the teams met in November, skating to a 1-1 tie in Milford before winning the return match at home by a 2-1 score. Both teams struggled to generate much offense as the goalies for both teams were solid in both games. The Pioneers are coming off a second place finish in the Providence Tournament just before Christmas. However, Sacred Heart has lost three of their last four games, including their last three Atlantic Hockey Contests. The Falcons have been off since December 10th when they beat American International 3-2. The all-time series between the Pioneers and Falcons is now even at a mark of 12-12-2.
