Although the men’s hockey team heated up the ice last month, the Bulldogs have run into a February storm. The Elis (8-14-3, 6-10-2 ECACHL) dropped a hard-fought game at RPI (12-14-4, 6-7-4), 2-1, on Friday before being outperformed by Union (15-11-6, 8-6-4), 5-1, on the next night.

Men’s hockey looks to halt Big Green streak
