After a two week break, the Piper hockey teams return to action tonight. The men (5-3 overall, 3-1 MIAC) take on Bethel at Vadnais Heights Sports Center at 7:00 p.m. It's a rematch of the season opener when HU edged the Royals, 3-2 in the MIAC Showcase in Blaine in late October. BU has struggled out of the gate to a 2-8 overall mark, 1-3 in the league. Since this is the last conference games for both schools for six weeks, there is plenty of incentive on the line.
