    It will be UPEI and Moncton in one of two Atlantic University Sport men’s hockey conference quarter-final pairings.
    The Panthers, which lost its last three regular-season games, including a 2-1 decision to St. Thomas Tommies Saturday at MacLauchlan Arena, enter the post-season as the sixth seed and will meet the No. 3-seeded Blue Eagles in a best-of-three series, which is scheduled to begin Wednesday in Moncton.
    Moncton and UPEI split the four regular-season meetings with the largest margin of victory being two goals.
    Games 2 will be played Friday at MacLauchlan Arena and Game 3, if necessary, back in Moncton Sunday.
    The other quarter-final series pits No. 4?St. F.X. against No. 5 Acadia. UNB and Saint Mary’s drew opening-round byes.
    Saturday at The Mac, Jeremy Turgeon’s goal 6:43 into the third snapped a 1-1 tie and STU beat UPEI for the second time this season.
    Summerside’s Devan Praught had tied the game for the Tommies (8-16-4) on the power play with a minute to go in the second period.
    Greg O’Brien had given the Panthers a very early lead, scoring 16 seconds after the opening faceoff.
    Ben MacFarlane got the win?while reliever Jhase Sniderman took the loss for UPEI.

    Women
    Moncton got all the goals they would need in the first nine minutes of the game and the Blue Angels rode the goaltending of Kathy Desjardins the rest of the way to trip a stubborn UPEI Panthers 2-1 in Atlantic University Sport women’s hockey conference action?Saturday.
    Johannie Thibault scored both Moncton goals — her first at 2:23 of the first before getting the eventual game winner 6:30 later.
    Desjardins made 48 saves in the contest as nationally seventh-ranked Moncton improved to a conference-leading 19-0-2. UPEI fell to 5-15.
    Amanda Armstrong replied for UPEI, scoring 16:07 into the second period as the Panthers outshot Moncton 49-21.
    The Panthers play at Dalhousie on Saturday before finishing the road trip with a game Sunday at St. F.X.
