What to Watch For
- Can Sacred Heart continue its strong offensive play? The Pioneers have averaged 4.0 goals per game over their last three contests.
- Will LIU be able to contain Walsh and Tuck? The two Sacred Heart forwards are the team’s top two scorers and have combined for eight goals and 13 points over the past three games.
- Can Perrone continue his strong play in net? The LIU goaltender has a .919 save percentage and 2.52 GAA over his last four starts.
Sacred Heart is coming off a big win over Army and has been playing well offensively in recent games. LIU is also coming off a win, but the Pioneers have the better goaltender and more depth at forward. I predict that Sacred Heart will come away with a 4-2 victory.
