While UPEI Men’s Soccer and Rugby seek fame and glory in the playoffs this weekend, it’s up to the men and women of UPEI Hockey to hold down the fort at home.

UPEI Women’s Hockey hosts Dalhousie University Friday evening at 7:00 pm in MacLauchlan Arena.

“Dal is the only team we have not played against this year, and they are averaging a goal a game better then we are,” said coach Bruce Donaldson. “They’ve a great leader in their captain Lisa MacLean. If we are going to be successful, we need to limit her and her teammates’ scoring opportunities. We need to compete for a full 60 minutes, do a much better job in defending in our zone, and be a lot more willing to block shots, especially on the penalty kill.”

UPEI Men’s Hockey hosts the University of New Brunswick Saturday evening. The Panthers have met the Varsity Reds twice already in the regular season, and have come up on the losing end of both games. The puck drops at 7:00 pm.
