I Know its Just a Little Bit Early... But its almost time for Whiteout Night

The Oswego State Lakers and Plattsburgh Cardinals have one of, if not the best rivalry in all of D-III hockey. January 30, 2010 is the date for the next round of this historic rivalry between the two SUNYAC foes. The location is the Campus Center Ice Arena on the campus of SUNY Oswego. The Last time these two teams got together, it was a 5-2 win for the Lakers at the Ronald B Stafford Ice Arena in Plattsburgh. That win snapped a long losing streak to the Cardinals. The Lakers have never defeated Plattsburgh on Campus Center ice, but is this a turn in the winds?
