ECAC Hockey quarterfinal action returns to Cheel Arena for the second consecutive postseason when Clarkson University hosts Yale in a best-of-three game series this weekend. The Golden Knights, who earned the No.3 seed in the conference playoffs, and Bulldogs will face off in Game 1 on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The teams will meet again on Saturday in Game 2 at 7:00 p.m. If the series is tied after the first two nights, a deciding Game 3 will be played on Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
Guided by eighth-year head coach Casey Jones, a Finalist for ECAC Hockey Coach of the Year, and assistants Josh Hauge and Brent Brekke, Clarkson skated to its second straight top-4 finish in the ECAC Hockey standings with a 13-7-2 league mark. The Green and Gold closed out the regular season by taking three of four points at Cheel Arena on March 1-2 in the final weekend. The Knights defeated Colgate 3-2 and then scored a last minute goal in regulation to tie Cornell 2-2.
