Following a weekend sweep of Vermont and Dartmouth, the Brown women's ice hockey team (14-13-2, 11-8-1) clinched the sixth seed in the ECACHL standings. The Bears will now travel to Canton, NY to take on the third seeded St. Lawrence Saints (24-5-5, 14-3-3) at Appleton Arena in the best-of-three quaterfinal series on Friday (3/4), Saturday (3/5) and, if necessary, Sunday (3/6).
The Bears and Saints will open up the series on Friday, March 4th in a 3:30 p.m. start. The series will continue on Saturday, March 5th at 2:00 p.m., and if necessary Sunday March 6th at 2:00 p.m. The winner will move to the ECACHL Final four which will be held at Union College located in Schenectady, NY, the weekend of March 11-March 13.
The Bears and Saints split the season series with each winning on the other's home ice. St. Lawrence defeated Brown at Meehan in a thrilling 2-1 overtime match-up in November, and the Bears handed the Saints their first and only home loss of the season, 4-2, two weeks ago.
