PROVIDENCE, RI - The Brown men's ice hockey team (14-12-3, 9-11-2), which finished the regular season in sixth place in the ECACHL will host 11th-seeded RPI (14-20-2, 6-15-1) in the best-of-three ECACHL First Round Series. The action begins Friday, March 4, at 7:00 p.m. at Meehan Auditorium. Game two is set for Saturday, March 5, at 7:00 p.m., while game three, if necessary, will be played Sunday, March 6, at 7:00 p.m.

Brown posted an 0-1-1 record against the Engineers in the regular season, with a 3-3 tie in early December at Meehan, and a 3-2 loss in mid-February on the road. This will mark just the second time that Brown and RPI will face each other in the ECACHL Playoffs. The only other time was in 1990 when the Engineers earned a two-game sweep of Brown in a series played at Houston Field House in Troy, NY.
