What's the loudest moment you've experienced at Lynah

What's the loudest moment you've experienced at Lynah

After the roof got blown off last night, a bunch of us were sitting around reminiscing about other times when Lynah erupted.

My personal favorite is the reaction to the Varteresian/Nickerson brawl

I vote for tonight, since I was at home watching on ILDN and had fallen asleep at the end of the second, only to be awoken by the call of the game winner.

The win over Harvard in December 1983. That’s the Schafer broken stick game when we came back from 4-0 down agains the #1 ranked Crimson

March 6, 1979..... No others are even close..

Roy Ives said it best when he said it was "pandemonium".

I think that was the wildest because the comeback made it feel like it was building up, just waiting for the moment when the (inevitable in our minds) tying/winning goals were scored.

When they happened, it was like a champagne bottle being uncorked, it burst..... Pretty special.... Anybody who was there willing to disagree?

A few moments come to mind for me...

Both 2OT game winners vs Clarkson in 2006 ECAC QFs (Sawada’s, Moulson’s GWGs)

Michael Kennedy’s GWG vs Harvard 11/10/06 with 1:33 remaining

Lauriane Rougeau’s NCAA QF GWG vs B.U. with 0:10 left in 3OT to win 8-7 in a game loaded with Olympians. (3/10/12)

Providence 1979.

As great as the fans have been when at their wild best in the recent past, nothing compares to the "old days." The glass was lower and the rink configuration was different -- the masses of people standing at the rail helped fuel the impression that Lynah was small but packed with fans and a vicious place to play. It was louder, too, not necessarily because the fans were noisier but because of different acoustics.

I also think the crowd was more raucous because the ushers did not shut it down quite the way they have done recently. No one would dream of bringing a 6+ foot phallus into the rink and throwing it on the ice. It would probably be considered politically incorrect to have the Karl Habib fan club dressed in their Arab garb in the first row behind the goal at the closed end of the rink at every game. And those poor chickens....I am not an expert on poultry but I imagine that had to be a somewhat traumatic experience.

Exactly 22 years before: November 11, 1995. When Schafer became coach, Cornell had gone 0-17-3 the prior 10 years in RS games against Harvard. Beating them felt as distant as getting back to the Frozen Four feels now. The timbers shook that night. And they weren't reinforced yet.

Fun trivia: last night I was wearing the sweater Chartrand wore when he scored the hat trick in that game.

I apparently said this in 2002:


The most beautiful goal off a faceoff that I've ever seen at Lynah was from a face-off on the student side. Nov. 8, 1997, we were down 3-1 to Brown with 6:20 left in the game. Moynihan scored to make it 3-2 with 4:01 left, then during a stoppage with 1:25 left, Schafer pulled Elliott for the face-off in the Brown end on the Section B side. In a play that lasted literally three seconds from face-off to goal, Vinnie Auger won the face-off, and while the five other Big Red players got their sticks around the Brown sticks and held them in place as well as they could, Jason Dailey took the puck, skated a lovely little S-curve around them all and put the puck over Jeff Holowaty's shoulder to tie it at 3-3.

The rest is history, of course; Kyle Knopp scored the go-ahead with 1:02 left, and Brown pulled Holowaty, but to no avail. You don't see both teams pull their goalie in one game very often.

I don't ever remember the Faithful being louder in my fifteen years watching games there.

Now that it's been thirty years, I would have to say that this Saturday night's game-winner came pretty damn close.

The crowd from McRae's goal until the stick salute on Saturday night was the loudest I've heard Lynah over the course of a few minutes--though there have been other nights where the crowd was louder over the course of the game.

Allow me to defend Beeeej. The "thirty" modifies the last sentence of his ancient post: "in my fifteen years watching games there." Now, it has been thirty years.

Hard for me to say what's the loudest, but this game has to be at or near the top.

Now, as per my signature, if we could only carry it on the road.

Or even to further home games.

Not to pick on BearLover, because just about everybody seems to be doing it - and I do understand the inclination because we once had two marvelous players with a similar sounding surname, even though that was over a decade ago. Could we please honor Alec McCrea's magnificent achievements this past weekend and the previous two seasons by spelling his name right??

Yeah, I didn't think it was that difficult to understand if one, y'know, read the post.

This is the game I think of when I think of loud. (The “Weder” Colgate Series is up there, too.) I was in the visitor Section O (“sucks!”) for the game and had a row of Brown students in front of me who, when leading, had been giving the business to Cornell fans sitting nearby, me included. How delicious it was when the table was turned.

Bonus that the comeback was captured and nicely mixed as a track on the first Live at Lynah CD.

This is how that starts, though, as you know. The kids got a taste of what they can do -- that barn really holds the noise. Now they know. They'll want that hit again.

The Harvard game "feels" like it should be at the end of the year, but getting kids pumped about hockey early is not a bad thing.

By "kids" do you mean the players or the (non-player) students? I.e., by "what they can do" do you mean "come back from 2 goals down to beat a loaded, #4 team" or "to raise the roof and have a great time, to inspire the team to come back from 2 goals down to beat a loaded, #4 team, and to intimidate a hated opponent"?

The students. I figure feeling the rush of a Harvard game, complete with comeback, will help with enthusiasm and attendance issues down the road.

The Sun's sports coverage, and the quality of the writing, has improved considerably the past 2 or 3 years. Nice to see after a number of lean years.

While I feel sorry for the kid, I am selfishly glad that we have someone of his quality as backup. When Galadja has a bad night—and he will / he's a freshman—I think Schafer should not hesitate to swap Stewart in, like he did at Princeton. Indeed, I have zero problem with a goalie platoon, particularly in the beginning of the season.

And a goalie injury would destroy most teams—not us, this year. In fact, McGrath had pretty good numbers in juniors. I don't think he's an "emergency third."

We are deep.

That's true since Hoffman and Shore left the team. Only extra healthy D is Cairns right now, and we don't want to see Rauter have to go back there again (although he did a stellar job last year all things considered).
