FAIRFIELD, CT (January 4) - The Pioneers enter tonight's contest with the defending Atlantic Hockey champion Holy Cross Crusaders with vengance on their mind. It was the Pioneers whom the Crusaders had to defeat in the Atlantic Hockey championship game for a birth in the NCAA tournament. It is the first meeting of the two teams since the championship game. Holy Cross won the season series in 2003-04 going 3-1-0 against Sacred Heart and hold an 11-6-1 record all-time versus the Pioneers.
