On the rocks, it was Potsdam hosting OFA in boys’ NAC hockey.

The ECAC men’s hockey semifinals are set for Thursday afternoon, with the Skating Saints of St. Lawrence hosting Colgate at Appleton Arena.

The puck is set to drop at 5 p.m.

The winner will advance to meet top-seed Quinnipiac in the championship game on Saturday.

In their six meetings this season, the Saints went 2-3-1 against the Red Raiders, with two of those losses by one goal.

Saints coach Brent Brekke expects another close contest Thursday afternoon.

“We’ve got to find a way to get to their goaltender,” he said. “Gylander has had a good year and we’ve got to make it a hard night, get some traffic and create some opportunities on that second and third chance. He’ll make the initial save and if we can do a good job getting him uncomfortable where he’s not handling that first shot and creating a lull for some of those rebounds to happen, I think that’s going to be a huge element.”
