Fairfield, CT - The Sacred Heart men's ice hockey team will begin their quest for an Atlantic Hockey Championship this weekend when they host a quarterfinal round game against Connecticut Saturday night. Game time at the Milford Ice Pavilion is 7:00 pm.
The Pioneers and Huskies meet for the third time in nine days, this time with the stakes raised. Sacred Heart and Connecticut split a pair of games last weekend, with the Pioneers winning Friday and the Huskies taking Saturday's match. Connecticut was the only team to take the season series from Sacred Heart. The Huskies swept the Pioneers in a two game set in December and then, with their win on Saturday, won the season series 3-1. As a result, the all-time series between the two schools is now even at 13-13-2.
