UNB@ACA - Saturday. Jan 16th, 7PM

Tonight the CIS #1 ranked UNB V-Reds (18-0-0) roll into the Acadia arena in Wolfville to take on the CIS #4 ranked Acadia Axemen (13-3-1).

After steam-rolling over the CIS #8 ranked SMU Huskies (10-4-4) last night with a score of 6-1, the V-Reds clinched a playoff birth with ten games still remaining in the regular season. Six individual scorers came through for the V-Reds last night, but it was once again Ben Shutron who was the major offensive presence as he got 1 goal and 3 assists and was named star of the game. UNB went 3 for 7 on the powerplay, while shutting SMU down as they went 0 for 8. V-Reds fans will be watching to see if the hit to Hunter Trembley last night will keep him out of action this evening as he played only one shift after being hit in the Head by David MacDonald of SMU.

The Axemen have been solid this season, cementing their hold on second place last night with a 2-1 victory over the UPEI Panthers (7-9-2). Spencer Jezegou scored early in the third period to give the Axemen the win as they came up against a hot goalie in the form of Jhase Sniderman. Acadia outshot UPEI 44-34 on the night. UNB has beaten Acadia in the two previous meetings of this year by scores of 3-2 (OT) and 7-3.

Tonight's game will be available on CHSR 97.9 and UNB Hockey on Twitter.

You can't dismiss Acadia at home. They only have 1 lose this year at home - 2-3 versus UNB. 4 loses in total.

Decent quality and I have been very impressed with the announcers...seem to know their stuff.

Probably the least impressive game from UNB so far this season but obviously a lot of that had to do with their opponent..

Yep, an off-night for the team and still beat the second best team in the conference on the road....good luck everyone else in the AUS.

I don't even know if it was so much the fact that it was an off night for UNB as much as it was Acadia being a very very good team who certainly knows how to shut down UNB's potent offense, atleast on their home ice...we will see how they make out at the AUC in a couple weeks though
