College Hockey:
Big Day on Tap for Atlantic Hockey

2011 is going out with a bang for several Atlantic Hockey teams. In what must be a record, AHA teams are taking on a total of six ranked teams in tournament and non-conference games today.

Rochester Institute of Technology, which already defeated No. 11 Ferris State 3-0 yesterday, will take on 16th-ranked Lake Superior State this afternoon in Vermont in what amounts to the championship game of the Catamount Cup. The tournament has a pre-determined schedule but both RIT and LSSU won their games yesterday.

Canisius travels to No. 12 Colgate, UConn hosts 17th-ranked Mass-Lowell in the championship game of its tournament, Niagara is at No. 2 Minnesota in the first round of the Mariucci Classic, Air Force plays at cross-town rival No. 6 Colorado College and  Robert Morris hosts 4th-ranked Ohio State at the CONSOL Energy Center in downtown Pittsburgh.

Tomorrow, Air Force hosts No. 15 Denver and Holy Cross could be playing 7th-ranked Merrimack in the Ledyard Bank Tournament at Dartmouth. The Crusaders take on the Big Green today in the first round.

Finally, on Sunday, Bentley travels to No. 19 Yale.

So in total, AHA teams will play nine and possibly 10 teams in the Top 20.

    What happened to Yale? Union and Yale seem similar in terms of speed and back checking. From what I have seen, the Union Goal tending has been the difference.

    I’d be happy for RIT if it hadn’t come at the expense of FSU.  *sigh*
