RPI is getting set for split weekend, home against Harvard on Friday night and then a road trip to Canisius the following day. The Engineers are coming off games at Princeton and Quinnipiac in which they earned a point with a 2-2 tie against the Tigers.

Harvard's hockey season didn't start until November but the Crimson have done nothing but win since the puck dropped in the opener against Dartmouth. Harvard is the 10th ranked team in the country at 5-0 having outscored its opponents 27-6 thus far.

For RPI, senior captain Will Reilly has been the model of consistency. The defenseman has ten points in ten games this season. Patrick Polino and Chase Zieky aren't far behind with eight points apiece. Goaltender Linden Marshall might be a name to watch this weekend after the junior played the final two periods, stopping every shot he saw in Saturday night's loss to Quinnipiac.
