Monday, December 2, 2013

After two victories at Penn State over the weekend, Union moved up in the USCHO.com/NCAA top-20 poll Monday.

The Dutchmen (8-3-2) moved up from 15th to 11th in the poll. They extended their winning streak to five games with 4-3 and 5-4 wins over Nittany Lions.

Union will have a showdown with fifth-ranked and ECAC Hockey-leading Quinnipiac at 7 p.m. Saturday at Messa Rink.

The Dutchmen are 14th in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine top-15 poll. They weren’t in last week’s poll.

Meanwhile, RPI (7-5-2) dropped out of the USCHO poll. The Engineers, who had the weekend off, got 102 points, most among other teams receiving votes.
