ECAC playoffs: Quinnipiac-Brown pregame

In Hamden for the ECAC best-of-3 first round series between Brown and Quinnipiac. Should be a fun series, as both teams seem to turn it up a notch in the playoffs. Quinnipiac, since joining the conference from Atlantic Hockey in 2005, have won at least one playoff series every year. Brown has been a thorn in the side of some teams with high aspirations of late. Just ask RPI and Yale.

Dan Clarke will get the start in goal for the Bobcats. Rand Pecknold liked what he saw of Clarke in relief late in the season, and rewarded him with a crucial start at Union last weekend. Clarke was strong, and earned a shot tonight.

Brown is without Jack Maclellan, who suffered a severe cut on his foot a couple of weeks ago. Much of the offense will fall on Harry Zolnierczyk, who could be the X factor in this series.
