Monday, January 28, 2013

After winning two games last week, Union moved up in the USCHO.com/NCAA hockey top-20 poll Monday.

The Dutchmen went from 19th to 18th in the latest poll released Monday. They beat Harvard, 4-1, last Tuesday, and downed RPI, 3-2, Saturday. The Dutchmen stopped a three-week slide in the poll.

Quinnipiac is the top-rated ECAC Hockey team in the poll at No. 2. The Bobcats just missed on the top-ranking in the poll by eight points. Minnesota held on to the top spot.

Other ECACH teams in the poll are Yale (8th) and Dartmouth (16th).
