Student Tickets On Sale For Men's ECAC Hockey First-Round Series Against Colgate

ECAC Hockey Tournament tickets are now on sale for students as the No. 7-seeded Quinnipiac University men's ice hockey team prepares to host a First Round Series against No. 10 seed Colgate University. The best-of-three series will take place March 6-8 (third game if necessary), with each game starting at 7 p.m. They will be the final hockey games played at the TD Banknorth Sports Center in 2008-09.

The league's playoff prices for students remain the same as last year – $6 each with a valid Quinnipiac ID.

Student tickets are NOT available online and can only be purchased by calling 203-582-3905 or visiting the ticket box office at the TD Banknorth Sports Center from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on weekdays.

Per ECAC Hockey postseason regulations, only the audio stream – and not a video stream – of the games will be broadcast on QuinnipiacBobcats.com. Students can link to the external video stream of any Quinnipiac men's ice hockey playoff games via QuinnipiacBobcats.com, or by visiting ECACHockey.com or B2TV.com.

This year represents the third time that Quinnipiac will host Division I conference playoff games in program history. The Bobcats swept their two previous home playoff series (versus Union in 2007 and against Brown in 2008).
