Owls set to take on Virginia Tech

Temple ice hockey will be a shorthanded bunch for its Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey Association matchup with Virginia Tech tonight at Northeast Skatezone.

Temple (7-3) will be without two top forwards in junior Joe Pisko and freshman Jayson Marbach, as well as its starting goalie in junior Chris Mullen to suspensions due to a late-game brawl in a 5-2 loss to Rowan University last week.

Sophomore Eric Semborski will handle the goalie duties in place of Mullen.

The Owls will be looking to bounce back from their loss at Rowan last week with their first MACHA win of 2012-13. Temple is 0-2 in MACHA play this season.

The Hokies (5-4) will be looking to rebound after two consecutive losses against the University of Maryland and MACHA rival University of Maryland – Baltimore County.

Game time is set for 9:30 p.m.
