Ok, so...of course we want a four point weekend.
But, tonight, Princeton over Hahvahd is a no brainer.
However, which is preferable in the Clarkson vs Onion contest?
A Clarkson win to give us more breathing room over Onion, or an Onion win to make Clarkson look less omnipotent?
Thoughts?

Oh, and GO Ben Scrivens!!

cheer

I think Clarkson winning over teams right around us is good.. let them lose to someone down the standings.

Very good thought. At the start of the ECACH playoffs, the difference between finishing first or second is not very significant, but the team that finishes third or fourth gets a tougher 2nd round opponents and the fourth place team, if it survives gets the first place team in the semis, and the last line change through the rest of the tournament.

At this point, I see Harvard as a bigger threat than Union, and I think they will surge in the second half after the Olympics.

Other than at the Beanpot, of course.

Harvard was truly skating circles around RPI on Tuesday. Check the replay on the RPI TV. It was a minor miracle that the game ended on a tie.

Harvard can skate.

Harvard Power Play looked pretty dangerous with Donato creeping in to the top of the left circle and Fox on the right.

a great comeback that still ends up disappointing. could have won that by a lot and lost the lead on a fluke of a goal in the last minute. damn.

Annoying for sure, but for quite awhile I didn’t think we’d even be able to break the ice, so to come back from 2-0 down on the road was terrific—and not at all surprising with this year’s team.

Brown got whipped 4-0 by Colgate tonight, but this year they seem to play well after a stinker. But I think if we play like we did tonight we’ll be fine.

Correction, the Brown score above was the women’s game. The Colgate men beat Brown, but only 2-1.

Didn't look fluky to me - looked like Galajda left a semi-juicy rebound to his left when Yale had numbers. Then again, the camera work and direction were so utterly shitty again tonight that I could've imagined the entire thing.

yeah it's definitely weird to be down 2-0 with a minute left in the second and still feel bummed about a tie but we had the lead and should have been winning by more. i'll get over it.

It was flukey in that it only got to the guy wide open on the near post becasue of a fanned shot that turned into the perfect pass

it wasn't a rebound - i don't know who it was but someone slid to block it but only redirected it to the guy on the doorstep. galajda had committed to making the save where the shot was supposed to go so the net was effectively empty. and as scoop said, the shot was a half-whiff so the timing on everything was weird.

you are right about the camera work though. the guy had no idea where the puck was a lot. i'd love to see that guy film a football game where the qb uses a lot of play action just for the vertigo.

considering we had probably 10 A+ chances we didnt score on, its hard to know whether to be happy coming back from 0-2 or sad losing a lead late. really played well for much of the game. the breakaway the multiple pipes the 4-5 open nets and some really good saves by the Yale kid..

Yales 3 goals where a bad one to open , a deflected puck that rolled into a tap in and a whiff that went to an empty net.

Still happy to go on the road, pretty much dominate and have tons of chances to score..

At the moment there are five teams fighting for the four ECAC first-round byes. Clarkson is the clear frontrunner and barring a second-half collapse will likely finish first. We are in second, though only a few games ahead of Union, Harvard, and Colgate. Of the teams just below us, Harvard is easily the scariest and has rebounded from its bad start. Luckily they will lose Donato, a Hobey Baker candidate, to the Olympics for a few games. Union, which has been weak out of conference, probably isn't as good as its ECAC record suggests. The pivotal stretch run matchup will be the home-and-home against Colgate.

But Union did get a win and tie at North Dakota, which does now seem flukey
