    Stating the obvious, the key game of season. Weather likely to be a major factor.Offensively teams are fairly even. On D LU has a slight edge. GK definite edge for LU. Determines home for playoffs.

    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.

    I attended the Lehigh-Bucknell game last year and it was quite an event. The one thing that remains fresh in my mind is that IMHO, Bucknell moved the ball as quickly and efficiently on offense as any team I’ve seen at the college level. I agree with Bison137, this game may just be decided on face-offs.

    Fair. Snyder will be key for us . TOs , as usual, scary for us. Still sloppy at times. This is Rd 1.

    Snyder really controlled v. Colgate, however he got called repeatedly for false starts in the fourth quarter which could have been a huge problem. Hopefully no repeat of that.

    What a strange game thus far.
    With 2:30 left in the 3rd Q, Bucknell wins 8 of 13 faceoffs and has 25 shots to Lehigh’s 12
    Lehigh 6- Bucknell 4

    Playing with fire in the X. Strange. D tight slides. Hard to keep if we keep losing FOs.

    Poillon comes up huge….a goal and 12 saves.
    It looks like I’m going to see the Patriot League Championships.

    Yeeeesssss!
    One hell of a game. Lost on all stats but won. Pollion! Hard hitting match on both sides. Our inside D was crisp. FOs kept Bison on O way to long. Better clean up before rematch. Improbable that any team could repeat a 6 minute stretch on D and not give up a score.
    Now for Pards.

    Watching some clips. Key change by Kevin, moving Corbett to middie. Play has been spotty all yr. Too much pressire on D and Attack. Corbett balances both.
    But, if we dont control X better next time cannot expect a win.

    What are the chances of the Patriot League getting 2 bids this year? Maryland, Loyola, Princeton, Bucknell and Penn all lost this weekend. I’m guessing we move up 2 places.
