I don’t think weather will be a factor. It’s supposed to be 56 degrees at game time, with only a 10% chance of rain.
Agree that LU has the clear edge at goalie, although Feeney could be the league’s 2nd best in net. Other than the LU advantage in goal, I’m not sure I’d give an edge to LU on D. Bucknell has played well defensively most of the year, considering how many extra possessions they’ve given up on faceoffs, and they do have the league’s preseason DPOY.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see BU have an edge in play, with the game being decided by how well Poillon plays relative to Feeney and also by faceoffs. BU needs to get close to 50% on FO’s – which often hasn’t happened. LU has an edge in that category.
