The Colgate Raiders Men’s Hockey Team (3-6-1 overall, 1-1-0 ECAC) will pack their bags and hit the road this weekend for two more ECAC games. Last weekend, the Raiders opened up their conference play away from the friendly confines of the Class of 1965 Arena – traveling to Quinnipiac on Friday, and then to Princeton on Saturday. They lost a heartbreaker to the then-seventh-ranked Bobcats, who came from behind to defeat the Raiders 3-2. The next day, Colgate came out on the winning end, taking down the Tigers by a score of 4-3 in overtime.

This weekend, the Raiders will have a more local trip as they visit Potsdam, NY on Friday night to take on the Clarkson Golden Knights (3-6-0 overall, 1-1-0 ECAC). On Saturday, they will take a short ride to Canton, where they will face the St. Lawrence Saints (5-4-0 overall, 2-0-0 ECAC). Colgate will see these teams again in February at home.
