Playoff positioning for many teams is still up in the air as we hit the last two weeks of the regular season. Eight teams still have a chance at a first round bye in the playoffs.
1. Air Force – The Falcons took three points from Niagara this weekend to stay in first place for the second straight week. They are undefeated in their last eight games. The Falcons host Mercyhurst this weekend.
2. RIT – The Tigers rebounded from being swept by sweeping Canisius. The Tigers have taken points in eight of their last 10 games and sit just one point behind Air Force for first place. They host Robert Morris this weekend.
3. Mercyhurst – The Lakers split with Robert Morris over the weekend. Even with the split, the Lakers are still just two points behind Air Force for the Atlantic Hockey lead.
4. Niagara – The Purple Eagles got only one point against Air Force but rebounded to beat Canisius on Tuesday. They face off against Canisius again tonight.
