Good news is we have a chance at revenge today. The Syracuse Orange faceoff with the Duke Blue Devils today at 1:30 on ESPNU.

The Orange are coming off of back to back losses but a second in-conference win would guarantee SU a spot in the ACC Tournament. Duke is one of the best man-down and man-up teams in the country. The Orange will have to capitalize on EMO’s and going the other way, SU needs to avoid dumb penalties. ‘Cuse has an opportunity to get some wins at the faceoff today so watch that battle closely. Meanwhile, SU has been held to 20 or fewer shots on net four times this year, the Orange will not win if they don’t break through that number today as Duke is third in offensive production this year in the country averaging just under 14 goals a game.

Hopefully this doesn’t get ugly.
