After splitting its two games over the weekend, Union dropped two spots in Monday’s USCHO.com/NCAA top-20 poll.

The Dutchmen (9-2 ECAC Hockey, 13-4-3 overall) slipped from fourth to sixth. They dropped a 2-1 decision to Quinnipiac on Friday, which moved the Bobcats into first place ahead of Union. The Dutchmen rebounded with a 3-0 win over Princeton on Saturday.

Union will face 17th-ranked New Hampshire for games Friday and Saturday in Durham, N.H.

Quinnipiac is the highest-ranked ECACH team, moving from seventh to fifth. Other ECACH teams ranked are Yale (eighth), Cornell (12th) and Clarkson (14th).
