Since the team is having a very nice little run, here's a place for items of historical interest / comparison.

To begin, they are currently at .900 in conference play and their absolute maximum is 41/44 = .932. That would be the 8th best ECAC RS ever. Here are the best ECAC seasons by winning percentage. RS, CT, and NT are the finish in the regular season standings, ECAC Championship, and NCAA Championship respectively.

Barring Biblical disaster Cornell will finish with the best GAA in conference. Here are the year-by-year best offense and defense in the ECAC, by GFA and GAA. I used tourney seed to break ties.

I think the injuries have taken a toll, but also clear that we’re seeing a scoring slump. Good news is that the defense is bailing us out, and you’d have to think the offense will rebound soon.

Two goals in 3 games won't make the nut and the powerplay impotence is worrisome.

They are less confident jumping up into the play and they've showing less creativity in playmaking (Mitch and Cam were among the most creative guys on the team).

Still, they had good chances in periods 2 and 3 at Clarkson -- they just were (for good reasons) being very careful of Rempel and those other sharpshooters.

Where there's life there's hope.

Next weekend will hopefully be be a home sweep. Allain is in PyeongChang coaching his alums. I think that makes Yale a weaker opponent. Brown has not been playing well lately, except for their tie with Clarkson.

Not playing well ever. Their only 2 wins in a row were in September. And even with Clarkson they were out-shot 37-25 and that game was in the middle of the tanking that Clarkson has done in their last 8 games, 1-3-4.

Yale is hard to figure out. They've won 4 in a row, but 3 were single goals (AZ State x 2 and Q) and blew out Princeton 7-2 last night, but were out-shot 36-30??????

With our recent play, sad to say that either of these games are easy losses for Cornell.

I don't think it's really gone anywhere. A few weeks ago we had the highest shooting % in the country, and many of our goals were coming on D-men shots from the outside. Now, those low-percentage shots aren't going in and we are down to 12th in the country in SH%. Our luck evening out plus our injuries is enough of an explanation for me.

Doesn't the second conflict with the first? You explained where it went. So therefore, it went.:-D

Ha, I meant that there wasn't anything "wrong" with the team, at least relative to earlier in the season, as some have been suggesting.

...with that said, the PP probably does need work. Does anyone even know if the team has designated PP lines? Seems Schafer throws everyone on the team out on the ice on the PP. Which is nice because it suggests he thinks everyone can score, but I'm not sure it builds chemistry.

Yeah, I knew what you meant. I just couldn't restrain myself.bolt

Tough to have lines with all the injuries. But I do think he generally wants 2 major PP lines. However those are all blurred now. On the PK, he generally gets most everyone involved.

Here's some more history. (Sorry, I don't know how to put this in a table.)

CU 2017-18, as of 25 games: 20-3-2 (14-2-2), 3.08 ppg, 1.40 Opp. ppg, avg. margin of victory: 1.68, Nat'l ranking: 4, record against top-5 teams: 0-0-1, top 6-10: 1-1-0, top 11-15: 1-0-1, 16-20: 4-0-0.

Union 2013-14, as of 25 games: 16-6-3 (10-4-0), 3.44 ppg, 2.28 Opp. ppg, avg. margin of victory: 1.16, Nat'l ranking: 17, top-5: 2-0-1, top 6-10: 2-1-0, top 11-15: 1-0-0, top 16-20: 2-0-0. Won NC

Because Union is not bound by Ivy League rules, it played about 3 additional games by around this date in the 2013-14 season. So here are the data as of 2/8/14:
Union 2013-14, as of 2/8/14: 19-6-3 (13-4-0), 3.54 ppg, 2.36 Opp. ppg, avg. margin of victory: 1.18, Nat'l ranking: 13, top-11-15: 3-0-0 (other groupings of ranked teams hadn't changed.) Won NC

Yale 2012-13, as of 25 games: 14-8-3 (10-3-0), 3.28 ppg, 2.76 Opp. ppg, avg. margin of victory: 0.52, Nat'l ranking: 13. Data for opponent rankings seem to be unavailable. Won NC

USCHO has Yale (13-9-3) at #13 in their poll on 2/18/13.

Yale winning that year is a testament to the fact that no one's really out of the running in the NCAA's. IIRC Yale had only gotten in because the result of the final CCHA game went in their favor.

I remember listening to the Yale announcers' post-mortem when they assumed they were eliminated. They were quite harsh on the team essentially saying they'd blown it. Then IIRC Michigan lost and Yale was the final team to qualify.

Yale needed both Notre Dame to beat Michigan and Lowell to beat BU in tournament finals to make it. UML won 1-0 behind Connor Hellebuyck, now the #1 goalie for the Winnipeg Jets. BU had a pretty decent record that year, and a win might have put them over Yale in PWR anyway (not sure of that).

If I were a Yale fan, that would be a great audio clip to have.
