Hockey Night in Oswego - #9 Adrian @ #1 Oswego

The number one and nine teams in the nation according to the last USCHO D-III Polls will meet tonight in a non conference game at the Campus Center Ice Arena on the campus of the State University of New York at Oswego. The Lakers are coming off a victory over #6 Elmira last weekend to capture their third Pathfinder Bank Oswego Hockey Classic Title and second win this season against the Soaring Eagles. Adrian is coming in on a two game skid as they were swept by Hamline last weekend. This will be a huge test for both teams as they both have strong offenses and strong defenses as well.
