Clarkson (12-9-2 overall, 6-4-1 ECAC Hockey) will play its first conference home games this weekend since defeating St. Lawrence University 3-1 on Nov. 20.
Coming to Potsdam is Quinnipiac (12-10-3, 5-6-2) and 20th-ranked Princeton (11-6-1, 7-4-1). Clarkson has played its last six conference games on the road, and started that stretch by defeating both of these teams by 5-3 scores back on Dec. 3-4.
The Golden Knights will play six of their remaining 11 conference games at home, and one of the road games will be a 10-mile drive to Canton to face SLU in Appleton Arena.
Quinnipiac, which plays Clarkson at 7 p.m. Friday, has gone 5-2-2 since it last to Clarkson on Dec. 4. The Bobcats most recent game was a 4-2 victory over the U.S. Under-18 team in an exhibition last Saturday.
Princeton has not played the past two weekends. The Tigers last games were on Jan. 7-9, losing 2-1 to Cornell on the 7th and then defeating Colgate 5-4 on the 9th.
Stat of the Night:
vs. Quinnipiac:
Scoring first will be important. Clarkson is 2-9 when the opposition scores first and Quinnipiac is 1-9-1 in the same situation.
vs. Princeton:There's a good chance to see a shorthanded goal in this game. Clarkson has scored six so far this season and the Tigers have five.
