172nd Battle of the Hill, tonight at 7pm!

The V-Reds are heading down the hill tonight to take on the Tommies for the 17th annual Lou Chabot Memorial game at the LBR.

This is the third meeting of the regular season between these two teams; the previous two meetings went in favor of the V-Reds with scores of 7-1 and 4-0. The V-Reds have a 24 game winning streak going against the Tommies entering into tonight's game.

The Tommies (3-15-3), are sitting in the basement of the AUS and are all but eliminated from the playoffs this year but tonight they will be playing in memory of Lou Chabot, a former defenceman for the team who died in his sleep at the age of 22. Yuri Cheremetiev leads the team with 19 pts in 21 games while Alex Labonte is coming off of a 3 pt weekend for the Tommies.

The V-Reds (17-4-0) are sitting first in the AUS and CIS, are on a seven game winning streak, and sit seven points ahead of both SMU (13-8-1) and UPEI (12-6-3) in the AUS standings. Hunter Tremblay has 5 pts against the Tommies this year and is currently on a seven game points streak. Travis Fullerton has held the Tommies to one goal in 44 shots over two games this season.

The game can be heard on 95.7 FM and followed on UNBHockey on Twitter.

The Tommies are going to get pounded harder than a porn star on anal night.

Stephen, CHSR is not doing either game this weekend, but back on the air next weekend. A contributing issue is the lack of phone lines in the LBR press box.

Thanks David, I updated it to the 95.7 stream

The overall record is 116-47-8 for UNB (678 winning %).

UNB averages 5.1 goals vs STU's 3.4

UNB is on a 20 game winning streak (25 if you count Exh. games). The last lose by UNB was at the 12th Lou Chabot game in Feb. 06 (10-3 for STU). That's five years ago - I don't know if anyone on STU was even on that team then.

At Home, UNB is on a 17 game winning streak going back to Feb. 03 (23 if you count Exh. games).

No matter how you look at it - it's a dominate streak.

However, UNB's home record against UdeM in the 90s was better - 25 games over 9 seasons.

Close Eric but not quite. The last win for STU was at the York Arena in October 2006, 3-1. Matt Seymour scored the winner early in the third and Justin McCutcheon scored into the empty net with a few seconds left. Good times. Guillume Mizsack is the only current Tommie who has ever known the W.

I remember that game. Rob Hennigar was denied on a penalty shot that would have tied the game at 2.

You're right - scanned the column too fast. I missed that game - sounds like it was a great game. I will make note that it was the York. Thanks. E.
