Anybody able to get Clarkson's streaming video to work at [clarksonathletics.com] ? They're in OT with Brown, 2-2.

I had it up, starting at about a minute into the OT. The picture quality was horrendous. I thought it could be an issue on my end, but then my daughter connected and the feed was terrible for her too.

Never mind - 2-2 tie, OT final. Wow.
Crazy result the night after Brown handed SLU their first conference win of the season.

Cornell's alone at the top of the ECAC!

Turns out you're correct, so I can stream it on my laptop, but not on the FS Go app on my iPhone for some reason, and mirroring to the AppleTV from the laptop sucks. The game's essentially over anyway, and Notre Dame's about to retake the lead in PWR by virtue of their higher RPI.

Princeton Announces it will hold Champions Weekend on Feb. 17


The Princeton men's hockey program is pleased to announce it will hold Champions Weekend on Feb. 17 to honor the championship teams of 1998 and 2008.


A ceremonial puck drop will be held with Princeton hockey alums and Stanley Cup champions George Parros '03 and Kevin Westgarth '07.

Neither of whom were on the championship teams.screwy

Really? For an ECAC title?

Notre Dame's win over Minnesota puts them back up to #1 and drops us to #2. And St. Cloud is nipping at our heels.

Once again we're the only team in the PWR with no Quality Inn bonus points.

If I'm not mistaken we recently clinched home ice advantage in the playoffs. Since the theoretical maximum league points by the 9th place team is 22 (in an absurd situation where there's a 12-way tie at 22 points), by passing that mark against Harvard we guaranteed at least 8th place. Realistically there's probably a way to model out the point at which everyone ending with a 22 point tie becomes no longer possible (example, if St Lawrence won all of their remaining games to get to 22 points that means others would have to lose, and Princeton and Quinnipiac still have to play RPI again, so it's conceivable that would make the maximum achievable points by the 9th place team less than 22 at this point). So maybe we clinched home ice against Colgate. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that if we win out next weekend against Union and RPI and Colgate and Dartmouth both wind up with 2 points or fewer, then we'd clinch a first week bye.

Not to jinx it or anything.

Man I have too much time on my hands.

Correct if you mean we have secured a home playoff series. Obviously we could still play a road QF series. Our magic number for clinching a 1R bye is 3.

Princeton winds up winning the game in a battle of two of the conference's bottom feeders. However, that last first-round home seed is very much up for grabs. The current 8th place team is Brown since they have the tiebreaker over Princeton, but each team still has a game against each other in Providence. Only 3 points separate 8th from 11th right now.

I decided to scout some of our potential playoff opponents by going to last night's game. Quinnipiac looked horrible, especially on defense, giving up 20 SOG in the first period. Princeton was 3-for-3 on the power-play. Princeton's first line is excellent, but the rest of the team is nothing special. Even so, I'd rather play Princeton then Q if it came to that in the postseason. In any case, Pecknold was not happy after the game. The rink was half full, and the student section mostly empty except for the pep band. I overheard one fan commenting on the way out, "The hockey games aren't like they used to be."

For whatever reason we've had trouble scoring on Q this year -- 3 goals in 2 games. Of course we've only given up 2 ourselves in those games and won both. But I do think we match up better against Princeton, especially at Lynah where we'd have the last change and can put out the best personnel to neutralize Princeton's strong top line.

That would be a neat trick!

The scores were 2-1 and 1-0, so while we did score only three goals, Quinnipiac only scored one.

That game vs. Princeton was atypical in that Q was outshot. On the season as a whole Q has been throwing a ton of pucks on net but just not scoring. Given how good their possession metrics are I think they're getting very unlucky and I wouldn't want to play them in the playoffs.

And provided a cautionary tale on what happens when a weaker team gets the better of a team near the top of the PWR in even a single game. Clarkson's down from #4 to #7 (while Quinnipiac's rise from #37 to #34 certainly doesn't help as much as Clarkson's slip hurts).

Q sounds like a dangerous team. They've got terrible goaltending numbers and one of the worst shooting percentages in the NCAA to go along with it, but they're among the best on close possession metrics. I've heard really mixed reviews of their play from people on this board, so I suspect they're inconsistent. All of that adds up to upset potential for me - a couple of good decent games from their goaltender, a change in their shooting fortunes, or just their Dr. Jekyll team showing up could really ruin somebody's weekend in a league playoff series.

[www.collegehockeynews.com]

If you sort by CF% in the "close" section you'll see Q in third. Even strength is probably a little more robust but it's the same basic story as far as Q is concerned. Fenwick shows the same general ranking.

Fun fact: the ECAC has 6 of the bottom 7 teams in the NCAA in shooting percentage - RPI, Q, Colgate, Dartmouth, Yale, and Brown. Of those, Yale and Q are near the top in terms of possession - better than Cornell, although Yale's schedule strength is even worse than Cornell's.

If shooting percentage really is a regression to the mean stat in college hockey I'd expect the ECAC to be stronger next season on that basis alone. Of course, it might also just be that those teams all have shot-happy home scorekeepers.

The Beanpot starts today at 5 PM with BU/Harvard. That game probably won't do much for the pairwise, but I imagine if either team wins the championship that would provide a boost. Best scenario I would imagine is either one of them facing Northeastern in the final and winning.

From my tweaking, it looks like a Harvard victory over either Northeastern or BC in the final puts us back up to #3 in the PWR - and as far as I can tell, no other result lifts us out of #4, but I'm not 100% sure I tried all the combos.

Hilarious Beanpot moment: halfway through the 2nd period announcers are reading a commercial deploring baldness and promoting a hair replacement product while the camera pans over to Ted Donato's gleaming pate.banana

The Bu Harvard beanpot game is a super entertaining up and down track meet heading into the second overtime right now. If you are up and have access to 5he game, definitely time in. NESN 851 IN boston.

Also, currently back to 3 in the pwr after northeastern beat bc in the flat game.

BU beats Harvard.

If I understand PWR correctly, it would have been more helpful to us had Harvard won because we beat them twice but BU only once.

Still, it feels good whenever Harvard loses. It also feels good when BU loses, but this is based on a rivalry that peaked about 50 years ago.

Since we often don't care who wins BU/Harvard matchup, it's one in which we often can't lose.

I wasn't watching the numbers live, but if Northeastern's win put us in #3, BU's win dropped us back down to #4. And what should be the best result for us next Monday, Harvard and BU wins, doesn't do enough to put us back up to #3 on its own.

Plenty of other games between now and then, though, including a couple of important ones for us. So just win.

This will probably need its own thread soon, but the bottom just fell out of an opponent's season. Anyone who thought SLU's struggles couldn't get any worse was mistaken.

According to Adam's story, it's more allegations about Mark Morris again.

And the answer is, It's no big deal at SLU.

I think our best bet is if St. Cloud sweeps. If the goal is to avoid the Sioux Falls regional (and assuming we get a 1 seed), we want there to be a 1 seed below us and not in North Dakota's conference. Minnesota State, Ohio State, and Notre Dame would all fit that bill.

Some big assumptions there, and who knows how it will shake out, but we're probably better off if St Cloud stays on top.

I ran the script on chn and added only possible results for the two st cloud v Denver games.

If st cloud sweeps:

1 St. Cloud State 59 .6121
2 Notre Dame 57 .5908
3 Cornell 57 .5847
4 Minnesota State 56 .5774
5 Denver 56 .5703

3 Cornell 57 .5847
4 Denver 57 .5809
5 Minnesota State 55 .5769

Wow. I did miss that.

And Miami, who hasn't been great this year, but is usually a pretty solid team.

I knew that. Just saying, without looking at pairwise, Clarkson has 3 ooc opponents better than any one of ours.

Speaking of cratering, Colgate, who was PWR 19 just a month ago and on the cusp of the tourney, is now 37.

And has played their last 4 games with senior Racine in goal as Point is injured.

For as terrible as the ECAC has been, Hockey East has been even worse, at least in terms of comparing top teams.


The funny thing about Hockey East is that the team likely to finish 1st in the conference--BC--hasn't beaten a single OOC opponent. It's a good thing that the CC Rule doesn't exist anymore. The thought that at one time a team could theoretically get into the NCAA's by winning its conference is hilarious given this situation.

You know what's not helping our strength of schedule a ton?

Since starting out 9-4-1, Niagara has gone 2-14-2.

Not that I suspect anyone was worried, but there is no set of results for tonight's two games (one AH, one HE) that would affect Cornell's spot in the PWR more than the tiniest insignificant amount.

Except for BU, all our NC opponents let us down.

Niagara. 6-3-1 before our game. 5-17-1 since.
Canisius. 10-5-1 before. 5-9-1 since.
Miami (2x). 6-6-2 before. 3-10-1 since.
UAH (2x). 1-3-0 before. 9-15-2 since.
BU. 6-7-1 before. 10-5-2 since.

Net: 26-43-5 .385 before. 44-81-7 .360 after.

Looks like an advertisement to stay clear of the "Big Red Machine".

It also shows we played a really, really shitty schedule this year.
