This feels right:
Here are your three highlights for today:
- Drexel at Hofstra: This is an angry, blood-soaked rivalry. The Dragons and Pride do not get along, and given how close these programs have been to each other in recent seasons -- three of the last four meetings between the two schools have been one-goal games with two going into overtime (the fourth game was a two-goal win for Hofstra) -- the desire to tear spines out of each other's body should be at murder-grade levels. Hell, in last season's regular season display of aggravated assault, the two teams combined for 10 penalties that accounted for 10 minutes of time to feel shame in the box. The fuse is already lit on this thing. The only question is whether enough dynamite is laid in the mine.
- Princeton at Stony Brook: This is a big spot for the Seawolves. Stony Brook has two solid victories on its resume this season -- Marist and Fairfield -- but those are the only two wins that Stony Brook owns over teams with winning records at this juncture of the year. The Seawolves gave Albany fits on Long Island a few weeks ago, but Stony Brook was unable to finish the drill against their America East nemesis. The Tigers' trip to the North Shore this weekend is a valuable opportunity for the Seawolves to prove that they are something more than an 8-2 record against opponents with an aggregated 36-62 record. Conversely for Princeton, Stony Brook offers a chance to pivot from a difficult two-goal loss to Brown last weekend before the team starts its final push toward a potential return to May.
- Notre Dame at Duke: This, basically:
