After a heartbreaking road trip to Chicago, The St. Louis Billikens hope to steal two games from the Lindenwood Lions this weekend.
Lindenwood (17-5) is coming off a tie with a top runner of the Div. II league in Lindenwood University-Belleville. So far in 2015 the Lions hold a record of (1-1-1). John Mulligan, a junior from Carlton, Michigan is the leading scorer for the Lions, notching 44 pts in 25 games. In addition to Mulligan, senior Kyle Vesling will also be a man the Billikens need to stop. Vesling has 37 pts with 7 power play goals in 25 games this season.
The Billikens counter this lethal Lindenwood attack with seniors Charlie Garavaglia and Curran Eigelberger. Garavaglia leads the Billikens with 37 pts on the year with only 18 games played. Eigelberger has 27 pts thus far with three game winners and only six penalty minutes. The Billikens must follow Eigelbergers lead and stay out of the box as they are one of the most penalized teams in the MACHA this season.
Consistent goalie play has had an impact on the Billikens this year as Tyler Stewart has played very well in 2015. Stewart has only let up four goals in two big games so far, notching over 75 saves. If the Billikens can get the elite level of play of Stewart, it should be a great series this weekend.
