Following these next four games at home, Siena ends the regular season with another five-game road stretch.
The preseason favorites to win the MAAC, the Saints have been paced early on by attackman Richie Hurley. The red-shirt junior captain is the reigning MAAC Offensive Player of the Week and ranks eighth nationally in scoring averaging 4.8 points per game.
Hurley holds a 13-game goal scoring streak and carries a 22-game point scoring streak into Wednesday's matchup. Conor Prunty has also tallied a point in 22 straight games, Colin Clive in 21 in a row and Nate Barry in a team-high 24 consecutive contests. Additionally, red-shirt sophomore goalie Tommy Cordts is a two-time MAAC Defensive Player of the Week and junior faceoff specialist Casey Dowd is winning 57.7% of his draws while leading the nation averaging 9.8 groundballs per game.
Robert Morris was picked to finish tied for second in the Northeast Conference Preseason Coaches' Poll. The Colonials have lost three of their first four games, but their lone win was an 11-7 triumph over defending MAAC Champion Detroit.
Robert Morris is coming off the program's fifth straight winning season after posting an 8-7 overall record in 2013 and advancing to the NEC Title game. Siena and Robert Morris have met only once previously, with the Saints posting an 11-3 win here in Loudonville on Apr. 24, 2005.
