Big controversy at the Q @ H game last night. Pecknold was ejected and got a 2 min "Abuse of Officials" and 10 min Game Misconduct". That was the decisive play, as H scored 3 goals in 44 sec. He was protesting that H's first 5 on 3 goal was kicked in.

Here's the link to the ILDN highlights. The event starts around 26 sec. As much as I don't like Pecknold, when I watch it in slo-mo, I have to say I agree with him.

Those highlights don't show his pyrotechnics. Did he say the magic words, or did he actually have physical contact with the officials? If the latter that sounds like Suspension City.

Yes, CC with back to back results that could be a turning point in their season. A tie vs #1 is impressive in spite of Duluth outplaying them in the third and the two OTs.

I'm not sure. I could see this going either way.

Watching it the first time, at full-speed, I thought the puck just went in off the H player's stationary skate.

Watching it a few times in slow motion, it is clear that the H player's skate moves in the direction of the goal and does, in fact, direct the puck in, but I don't think it was "a kicking motion." I think the player was trying to get leverage to turn and attempt to shoot the puck in. In his attempt to get leverage, his skate did contact the puck, the result being the goal. I just don't think there was "a kicking motion", and I think the player genuinely did not intend to kick the puck in.

It's definitely a close call.

Anyone at the game, watched it on ILDN, or heard anything from the CT press?

I can't remember an instance when I saw a coach kicked out for that, but it's probably just my bad memory.
I don't know what the officials saw. To my eye, it is clear that the puck started toward the goal as a result of being propelled by #13's moving skate. However, it doesn't look to me as though he was trying to kick the puck in (the "distinct kicking motion" referred to in the rule book as being needed to invalidate a goal), but rather was trying to turn to face the goal and accidentally pushed the puck. I also can't tell whether or not his stick subsequently touched the puck in the crease just before it entered the net, the view being obscured by the goal post. He was trying to ensure that the puck went in by giving it a tap, and if he did touch it the goal was certainly good. My eye doesn't detect a change in direction of the puck as a result of possible stick contact, but I can't rule it out.

Here it is. Interesting is that Rand gets tossed before the play is reviewed. It is borderline but there was no way that with a close call like this and Pecknold already gone that it would be overturned.

I apologize for the video going in an out if HD. I think it is a combination of Windows, ILDN and the capture program causing agita in my i5 processor.

If I'm reviewing that, I call it a no goal. His foot is stationary, then juts towards the puck. That's enough of a kick for me.

But it's close enough to go either way, certainly.

Thanks for the full video clip. I think the officials were concentrating on whether he got his stick on the puck just before it went in. The overhead view was inconclusive, so the ruling on the ice was sustained.

You aren't viewing enough of the play if you think that. His foot was NOT stationary. His right foot/leg slide forward (away from the goal) and he gets up on the rearmost point of his blade with the foot in front of him. The skate then reverses and slides backwards (towards the goal) and deflects the puck in at the start of that motion.

The thing is, that motion is the most likely thing to do to retain his balance and turn towards the goal; skate went forward first, now it needs to go back. Exactly what the commentators say at ~4:30 in Marty's clip.

Princeton actually lost last night pretty bad to Dartmouth, although their struggles in Hanover are much worse than Cornell's. It probably has something to do with the tennis balls. Things won't be easier for them tonight.

If there's a kicking motion but it's unintentional, does that still count as a kick? You're right, he was trying to regain balance rather than put the puck in, but to me, he still pushes his skate into the puck. To me, getting away with no kicking motion means either not moving or gliding into the puck without any leg movement.

It's only no goal if there was intent to kick in. Incidental skate contact (as this was) or angling a skate (without a kick) to deflect a puck in, is fine.

This was one of the easier reviews for officials to handle that you will see. They know the rules.

EDIT: Besides, that wasn't a kicking motion in this scenario.

NCAA RULES
83.4 Goals Scored Off of Skates - A puck that is directed into the net by an
attacking player’s skate shall be a legitimate goal as long as no distinct
kicking motion is evident.
A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player
who kicks a puck that deflects into the net off any player, goalkeeper or
official. A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player’s skate who
does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal.
The following should clarify deflections following a puck kicked by an
attacking player that enters the goal:
• A kicked puck that deflects off the body of any player of either team
(including the goalkeeper) shall be ruled no goal. The body refers to
anything other than a player’s stick.
• A kicked puck that deflects off the stick of any player (excluding the
goalkeeper’s stick) shall be ruled a good goal.
• A goal will be allowed when an attacking player kicks the puck and the
puck deflects off his own stick and then into the net.
A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks any equipment
(stick, glove, helmet, etc.) at the puck, including kicking the blade of his own
stick, causing the puck to cross the goal line. A puck that is batted into the net
by a hand or foot or deliberately batted with any part of the attacking player’s
body is not a legal goal.
A goal shall be allowed if a puck deflects off an attacking player who is in
the act of stopping.

A Harvard skate appeared to help direct the puck in and there was an attempted shot with the stick that got nothing but air, so it's possible the ref thought he saw the puck being directed in by the stick.

It was a fun game to watch. A shorty goal with 0.6 sec left in the first and a ppg with 1.2 seconds left in the second were notable. Perry looked like he was stopping beach balls all night. Sucks switched sieves after two. Madsen certainly had a rough go.

You can watch Harvard skate circles around RPI in the second (for free) at RPITV.ORG. it may be a few days before the game is available for replay.

It's only no goal if there was intent to kick in.

There is no provision for this whatsoever. Intentional or not, if it's a kicking motion, it's not a good goal. The only provision is if the player is stopping and that's not what happened here.

I couldn't tell from the replay what part of Jeff it went in off. I thought it might have hit him around the waist, but the announcers speculated first the skate and then later a glove. In the event it looked like he was braking as he moved toward the goal and the puck surprised him and just went in off his body. Not only did it not look like intent, it didn't even look as if he realized what had happened.

I wouldn't have been surprised either way so I naturally assumed the call would go against us. **]

Edit: Christ, never mind. I'm talking about Kubiak's no goal, not the Harvard goal. Wrong thread, wrong event, I really am getting old.

You are part right and part wrong. I should not have used the word intent, you are correct there. The requirement is "a distinct kicking motion". However, you are wrong about the only provision being a player stopping; it is simply one clarifying example cited in the rules (IMO because it is not an uncommon occurrence for a player to be stopping in the crease after charging the net)



Per the rulebook (which I posted earlier in this thread)

NCAA RULES
83.4 Goals Scored Off of Skates - A puck that is directed into the net by an
attacking player’s skate shall be a legitimate goal as long as no distinct
kicking motion is evident.



It says only that it cannot be a distinct kicking motion. The player can be spinning in circles like a figure skater and it would be a good goal. Or, as in the gola discussed in the thread, the player was clearly getting his balance and moved his foot to a natural balance point. It wasn't a kicking motion at all.


A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player
who kicks a puck that deflects into the net off any player, goalkeeper or
official. A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player’s skate who
does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal.



The following should clarify deflections following a puck kicked by an
attacking player that enters the goal:
• A kicked puck that deflects off the body of any player of either team
(including the goalkeeper) shall be ruled no goal. The body refers to
anything other than a player’s stick.
• A kicked puck that deflects off the stick of any player (excluding the
goalkeeper’s stick) shall be ruled a good goal.
• A goal will be allowed when an attacking player kicks the puck and the
puck deflects off his own stick and then into the net.
A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks any equipment
(stick, glove, helmet, etc.) at the puck, including kicking the blade of his own
stick, causing the puck to cross the goal line. A puck that is batted into the net
by a hand or foot or deliberately batted with any part of the attacking player’s
body is not a legal goal.
A goal shall be allowed if a puck deflects off an attacking player who is in
the act of stopping.


OK, there is the stopping example. But it's a clarification, not an entire listing. An example not cited is this: PLayer A is stopped motionless just above the crease. PLayer B shoots the puck at PLayer A and it banks in off his skate. That's a good goal.

Even though I realize that Trotsky was talking about a different goal, here is the Harvard score for those that missed it. There is some comedy value as Pecknold is tossed for complaining to the refs who then review the goal after his ejection.

I guess there is still a lot of volatility, particularly for Ivies with only 16 games or so.

2 to 12 in two weeks is bad, but I wonder what happened to us over the end of January, early February last year?

I am no fan of Rand Pecknold, but have to hand it to him: he's the only coach I've seen at any level ballsy enough to make the mathematically superior decision of pulling his goalie with 3 minutes left instead of the usual 1 or 1:30 remaining.

I assume you mean in a one-goal game, but Doug Derraugh is pretty aggressive about pulling the goalie when down by two. (And I feel like this is becoming more common in general.)

IIRC a few years ago one of the directional Michigan U's, or perhaps UNO, tried to play most or all of the third period with the G pulled in a game they were far behind. It didn't work, although the damage wasn't too bad -- like 2 goals per side or something of that nature.

IMO you pull the goalie with as many mins left as you are behind.

part of me thinks, that the better you are at controlling power plays the more aggressive you can be at pulling the goalie, if you can win faceoffs and not lose the puck pasing it in the zone you can take more chances.

given chances if avg Ds will get chances for a score to ice the game.

I do wonder why teams dont get more aggressive when they get late PP and dont always pull the goalie.

2015 NCAA Tournament - Miami was down 6-2 to Providence and pulled the goalie with almost 13 minutes left. Miami scored 3 times to make it 6-5 before Providence finally scored an empty-netter.

You live there, so you probably know more than I do, but RPI doesn't even own the CD market currently, having lost it to Union. We are probably capable of getting it back, but NYC is ridiculous.

I don't think there is a significant (hockey) sports market in the tri-city region. I have no answer regarding the empty seats for the Cornell at Union game on the 3rd. The turn out at the Mayor's Cup TU Center game was ok considering the Thursday night slot but disappointing compared to prior years. Regional turnout here has been less than I expect as a college hockey fan. The ECAC left town because of dwindling attendance (and a payoff from the Atlantic City competitor).

I'd rather get off my butt, see some friends and drink some barely acceptible coffee during my regular trips to Houston Fieldhouse but many former season ticket holders disagree.

?I don't understand!?!?

Gaudet is another one to watch. He's an alum and well-liked, and Dartmouth doesn't care whether they are competitive, so he can probably stay as long as he wants, but his son has graduated and he's closing in on his 30th year as a coach with a lifetime 50+ games under .500, and they cratered this year.

Fun fact: Gaudet has 181 fewer losses than Jerry York. And 648 fewer wins.

Finally a topic that doesn't require knowledge of advanced analytics :-).

Kyle's attorneys statement is interesting and paints a plausible picture. The one thing though that I find peculiar is that Kyle allegedly acted under the Power of Attorney to sign the mortgage documents. While it is certainly legal to do so, it is unusual to use a POA in this context. Typically a lender will want both borrower's to sign in their own capacity, precisely to avoid a later claim that the agent exceeded his authority. I wonder what circumstance could have occured that would have rendered Kyle's wife unable to sign the mortgage documents at a time convenient for her? But apparently supporting Kyle's claim is that the issue was raised during the matrimonial action and his wife's argument was rejected there. If so, it greatly weakens the prosecution's position in the criminal case.

I think I'm very sensitive to this as I had to live through all the crap that CU teams, predominately Canadians, received back in the day. That's why I mentioned the BC issue. For those who don't know, BC used to be only Americans, and proud of it. Proud to the effect of badmouthing our Canadians. It probably wont ever leave me.

In fact I even get annoyed, when at games like at LP, something comes up about the Olympics and the crowd goes wild with USA, USA... Doing it right in front of our Canadian players. As I said, I'll probably never get over it.

With Harvard, Union, and Cornell, as well as Clarkson, Yale, and Q, losing a massive amount of talent to graduation/early departures, I would imagine the ECAC will be relatively weak next year. Harvard will still have Donato, Fox, and Madsen, so they look to be the favorite, but if the Red's D can stay healthy I don't think our opponents are going to score many goals. St. Lawrence will also likely be a popular top-four pick due to them returning the best goalie in the league.

Red Berenson has retired at 77 from Michigan; he was head coach since 1984. The replacement is Mel Pearson, who was a Michigan assistant for 23 years then head coach at Michigan Tech the last six.

Had Ned Harkness stuck with Cornell that long, he would have been head coach through 1996. And then could have turned things over to Mike Schafer.

Harvard has a clear and significant recruiting advantage over the rest of the ECAC: [www.collegehockeynews.com]

Still waiting for that rising tide to lift Cornell's boat...

You've told us this at least 500 times. I think that's 499 times too many.

The simplest solutions involve throwing Harvard out of ECACHL or we could leave. I think it would be easier for Cornell to leave and a la NCHC a new league would be formed. Since the goal is to crown Cornell as the defacto leader of this movement/group we at eLynah are faced with the task of picking the other schools. My nominations for those schools are the AAAA teams of Alaska, Alaska, AIC and Alabama, along with the alphabetically challenged Sacred Heart.

I propose the league be called the GOHIC. The Gorge Out Hockey Ice Conference. It would segue perfectly with the progressive idea concerning beer sales at NCAA events. I can hear the chant from the Lynah faithful as we cheer our team at the Albany Times Union Center league championship series.

Go, Go, Go Hic !! drunk
