V-Reds look for some REDemption tonight!

The CIS #3 ranked V-Reds host the CIS #6 ranked X-Men at 7pm tonight at the AUC. Tonight's game will hold a lot of significance for the players, coaches, and fans. This is the first meeting between these two teams since the X-Men came into the AUC on Feb. 12th last year and gave UNB their first regular season loss (4-3), after 26 straight wins, ending UNBs quest to have an undefeated season.

A few weeks later, they ended UNB's bid to return to the Nationals and defend their title with a stunning three straight game upset, including a 3-2 victory over the V-Reds that all the fans will remember which saw the V-Reds out shoot the X-Men 31-6.

The X-Men are coming off of a 7-3 loss last night at the hands of the UPEI Panthers, and are currently on a three game losing streak that they will be looking to turn around. The X-Men are led in points by Chris Hulit and Bryce Swan with 13 and 8 points respectively.

The V-Reds, on a current six game winning streak, are sitting atop the AUS conference and will look to extend their three point lead over the X-Men tonight. The top line of Hunter Tremblay, Chris Culligan, and Jordan Clendenning have been looking like a well oiled machine of late, combining for 29 points thus far this season, and will look to continue their dominance of opposing lines.

The game is available as a webcast from the SSN website, and can be followed on UNBHockey on Twitter.

What happened to the STU site? Before you guys copied it that was the best place to watch the fireworks. Were they banned or something?
