Hockey: Pete Kelly Cup liveblog, Game 1
Now that the NHL Winter Classic has been delayed until tonight, join us before that game for our liveblog of the first game of the 6th annual Pete Kelly Cup, with the UNB Varsity Reds hosting the Providence Friars in the first of two games tonight at 7:00 pm (6:00 pm EST).
UNB of course is first place in the AUS, ranked #2 in the CIS, and just humbled the McGill Redmen 7-1 on Thursday and are 11-4-0 in conference play and now 20-4-0 overall. The Friars play in Hockey East, the strongest conference in Div 1 NCAA hockey, and are a rebuilding program. While they were projected to be in 10th place this season, they are currently in 7th place in Hockey East with a 3-4-4 record in conference play and 7-6-5 overall.
