FAIRFIELD, CT (February 20, 2004) - The Pioneers will be facing both Mercyhurst and Canisius for the final time this season on Friday, February 20th, when they take on the Lakers in Erie, PA and the Griffs the following night, February 21st, in Buffalo, NY. Canisius went 1-0-1 in a weekend series at SHU earlier this season with both games going into overtime. More recently the Pioneer swept Mercyhurst by identical 5-2 scores just two weeks ago at the Milford Ice Pavilion. SHU enters the weekend on a six game winning streak while Mercyhurst rebounded to sweep Army last weekend. Canisius has done just the opposite after being swept at UConn over the weekend and going 0-6-2 in their last 10 games played.
