One of the fiercest rivalries in Connecticut takes to the ice live (or on-demand) on the HAN Network. New Canaan “hosts” Darien in a non-conference Division I boys ice hockey game at the Darien Ice House. Watch the Tuesday, Dec. 27, game live at 4 p.m. (or later on-demand) in the video player below. The game will also be simulcast live on Frontier Communications’ Vantage Sports Network (Chs. 600/1600) and you can watch it on the HAN Network mobile app.
New Canaan comes into the game undefeated at 2-0-0, with wins over Division I foes Notre Dame-West Haven and Hamden, while Darien (0-2-0) is still looking for its first win since it captured the 2016 state championship in March.
The Blue Wave opened the season with a 7-2 loss to Hamden in a game on HAN. Darien then lost to Fairfield Prep, 3-2. New Canaan has gotten off to an opposite start. The Rams beat NDWH, 4-2, on Opening Day on HAN and then took care of Hamden, 3-0.
The last time we saw Darien vs. New Canaan on the HAN Network was in football’s Turkey Bowl thriller on Thanksgiving morning.
