Cornell-BU- Red Hot Hockey Round 3 Preview

This Saturday, the 3rd bi-annual Red Hot Hockey will take place at Madison Square Garden. #17 Cornell Big Red (6-2-0) take on our #15 Boston University Terriers(6-4-1). BU is 1-0-1 in the biannual event winning it 2007 and tying 3-3 in the last meeting in 2009. Cornell comes in on top of the EZAC and off a win last night against Niagra. Cornell goalie Andy Iles has pitched 3 straight shutouts, granted they were against Quinnipiac, Niagra and Princeton but it is still an impressive streak that has improved his numbers to .918 and 2.00 GAA. This team should provide a stiff test for BU who has won 3 in a row with starting goalie Kieran Millan only allowing 1 goal in his last two starts against BC and UNH. Rumor also has it that the Stanley Cup will be in the building and there are still cheap tickets available. Stay tuned for some good stuff in the next week and a half leading up to BC next weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there.
My prediction: BU 5 Cornell 3
