In the Pipeline: 1/8/2018

Quinnipiac returned to ECAC action over the weekend and earned a split of the Colgate/Cornell road swing. They beat Colgate Friday night 4-3 in overtime after blowing a two goal lead in the final minute and fell to Cornell 1-0 the following night. The Bobcats are now 8-11-2 (4-6-1 ECAC) on the season. At this point of the year, Quinnipiac would need to win the ECAC tournament in order to return to the ECAC tournament as they are not in position to get an at-large berth. With that said let's take a look at how some of the future Bobcats did over the past week.
