March 4, 2021 | Maryland Heights, Mo.
Liberty University's ACHA Division II men's hockey team, which defeated Lindenwood University two out of three games on Feb. 19-21 at the LaHaye Ice Center, moved up in this week's national rankings to No. 2, trading places with the Lions.
The Flames (8-4-2) will meet Lindenwood again on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. (EST) in Maryland Heights, Mo., just outside of St. Louis. First off, however, they will face top-ranked University of Mary (N.D., 24-1-3), Friday at 4:45 p.m., in a rematch of their season-opening series at the LaHaye Ice Center.
The Flames were originally scheduled to also play Davenport in a three-game Lindenwood Showcase, but the Panthers have suspended operations due to COVID-19 protocols and no substitute team was found.
After having next weekend off, Liberty will return to ninth-ranked Florida Gulf Coast University, a team it swept Jan. 25-26 in Fort Myers, Fla., March 19-20 before concluding its regular season March 26-28 against a yet-to-be-finalized opponent at home. The Flames will travel to Bismarck, N.D., for the ACHA DII National Championships, hosted by Mary,from April 15-20, seeking their first national title.
