Arizona State appears to have an impressive schedule. I assume they are an independent--is this their first season in D1?

According to Wikipedia they've been a D-I independent since 2015-16 (after winning the ACHA title in 2014-15) and have been playing a full D-I schedule since 2016-17.

Whatever they have was good enough to score two in the third period and come from behind to beat New Hampshire at home 2-1.

The Cantabrigian-monikered Brogan Rafferty, junior defenseman. How that's only a misconduct is beyond me. Calls out for some "supplemental discipline."

I can't say it's never happened, but I feel like I don't see us pull that Scott Stevens BS that often. And I have an idea that Schafer would bench a player that did that for at least a game.

Looked like a good clean hit to me. Kept his hands down and all. A hard hit isn’t necessarily a dirty hit. Not sure how it could be called charging given he coasted into him.

Hard to say. I think the Deer-tick D-man led with his shoulder a bit, but the U-Conn player was smaller and was also hunched over so his head was in a more vulnerable position.

In the heat of the moment, probably a good call. IMHO no supplementary discipline needed, but your mileage may vary.

Goalies are their big question mark. Here's hoping that none of the new guys pan out. Currently their save %s are .905 & .857. Neither of those will likely lead to a good season.

I might wish for them to give us a good fight, lose to us by 1 goal home and away and beat the crap out of the teams they play as our travel partner. In the league I only hate Union and wish that Harvard will lose all its remaining games to Cornell - until forever or a bit longer.

Check out RPI TV on Youtube for this afternoon's game vs UMass Lowell. Just before the 6:50 mark of the first period RPI scored on itself when adding an extra man during a delayed powerplay call against Lowell.

Not as nifty as Mitch's empty net goal but nearly as rare.

Unfortunately all I get from RPI TV is a message that the content was blocked due toi a copyright issue.

Maybe there's something in the pucks, USCHO reports that North Dakota had 2 own goals in game Saturday against Alaska Anchorage and now has 4 in last 4 games.

"7. North Dakota scores four goals in its opponent’s net and two in its own on Saturday

North Dakota put two pucks into its own net to give Alaska Anchorage a 2-0 lead on Saturday night. UAA’s Nicolas Erb-Ekholm was given credit for both goals. According to Brad Schlossman, the two own goals gave UND four in its last four games."

I wonder what's the record for a season?

I was thinking about grabbing a copy of the goal for YouTube when I too saw that message. We actually looked at the goal on my phone at the rink and the original shot was of the RPI player sitting on the ice after drawing the penalty. But on a longer view at home last night - before they pulled the video - they showed a different view as a replay. It wasn't all that enlightening due to the shot being from the other end of the rink.

The loss of the video due to copyright adds insult to injury. We had to sit through the crappy song selection during the game. They even played a song each time Lowell scored.

Those weren't empty net own goals, however. Those were the type of goals where it goes in off your own Dman's skate. I assume. Otherwise 4 in 4 games is utterly insane. IINM Cornell has benefited from only 1 en own goal in the 38 years I have been a fan. (Dave Crombeen at RPI 3/1/86)

The game is back here. Watch from about 18:30on the YouTube clip to see the play develop. At 20:00 you can see the replay showing the whole ice view. The announcer called it a deflection on watching the replay. If so, it might have been off the point defender's stick.

I emailed RPI TV about the music problem and their reply a day or two ago was that RPI TV had requested that YouTube strip the music out of the video so that it could be restored. I didn't know that YouTube would take care of this type of request.

Watch from 1:25:30 to see the RPI team self destruct in the last 5 minutes of period 2.twak

After their rough CNY weekend, their last 4 games have been against teams in the top 10 of PWR (#1, 4, 4, 10)

Looks like we can count Kuffner & Véronneau out of the Hobey chase.

Meanwhile QU is having the season we did last year and has 2 of the top 10 goal scorers nationally in Priskie & Tufto.

Princeton is a one-line team that was able to catch lightning in a bottle the second half of last year. Their issue has always been a lack of defense and goaltending, strength of schedule aside.

There's nothing to look forward to about going to watch a game at Quinnipiac. The traffic jams leaving the rink are horrible. The loud, canned music they play -- even though there may be two pep bands there -- is annoying. The "sellouts" they always have consist of hundreds of empty seats. If you're lucky, they'll also give out thundersticks to the fans who are there. They have hockey cheerleaders. And of course Pecknold is one of the most despised opposing coaches. Other than that, it's a great atmosphere.

But a positive is that you can eat dinner in New Haven, including at one of the overrated-but-still-good pizza places, instead of eating the shit they serve at the arena.

IIRC, the CT & RI Cornell clubs are having some kind of a shindig in conjunction with the game.

The legendary New Haven pizza places are Sally's Apizza, Modern Apizza and Pepe's Pizza. Bar is considered close, but just a notch below them. Most pizza lovers are passionate about their favorite one of the New Haven trio. I'm a huge Modern fan, for example, and will be going there before the Yale game. But on a weekend you have to expect long lines at all of them, so give yourself plenty of time.

So last night here in Philly, Princeton and Penn State played a game over at Wells Fargo Center (the Flyers arena) and it wound up being a pretty good game. I was able to go last minute because of a friend that works at Princeton and we saw Princeton play poorly for the first period (went down 4-1 and pulled their goaltender early in the 2nd) until they came all the way back to tie in the last 2 minutes of regulation. They even had a breakaway in OT that the Penn State goaltender made a stellar save on. As one can imagine, the place was 90-95% Penn state fans (this city has no shortage of their alumni) and they were quite vocal, although rather tame compared to what we're used to hearing at Lynah.

Dartmouth hockey coach, George Crowe, has died.

I don't know what happened to him after his buildup to the very successful '79 & '80 seasons, but those were certainly 2 of Dartmouth's best.

Adam, I know they tanked.:-D Why is the reason.

I like to think it was because as an 8 seed we beat them in the 1980 ECAC Finals. It "took all the starch out of them".dribble

Of course they did go on to stomp on us in the meaningless NCAA consy game.

That was a strange year. We were .500 in the season, the #8 ECAC seed and went on to beat, in order, the #1, #2 and then #3 Dartmouth to be the ECAC Champion.

In the NCAAs we almost made it to the finals, which is why those consy games were so terrible.

Forget it, I found it listed under hockey - it just wasn't where I expected.

When I first went to the Roku app "Live and Upcoming" didn't show the game. I later found it when I looked at "Hockey" but the ridiculous thing was that when I clicked out of the game after the OT period, it WAS listed as "Live and Upcoming". this is still megabytes better than ILDN and cheaper to boot.

Boston Globe reports Normand Bazin, head coach of hockey at #1 ranked UMass Amherst earns $464,538.53 and is the 16th best-paid employee of the state of Massachusetts workers. Football and basketball coach each make just about $500K. [www.bostonglobe.com] [Edit add: This is the UM-Lowell coach. UM-Amherst coach is Greg Carvel St. Lawrence '93 / St Lawrence coach through 2016, paid in the low 300s.]

One could see why it might be tempting for a really good Ivy coach to jump and salt away enough for his kids' college education and retirement. Conversely, the Ivies, through significant alumni support, not operating funds, could make it worthwhile for coaches in key sports - football, hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, basketball at least - to stick around, and offset the lack of athletic scholarships might be offset.

(IIRC Penn State in the past has been able to sidestep state employee salary reporting / sunshine law rules, so it's not easy to see what Jeff Tambroni makes. In doing a quick search on Penn State salaries, I found this tidbit: Penn State's athletic director hire in 2014 came from UC Berkeley, was making $400, was asked to leave, and winds up in Happy Valley making $700K.

I believe it's also true that many (all) Ivies offer free tuition to children of employees, and that many (all?) of the Ivies have deals with "peer" institutions that allow their employees' children to attend the peer institution at similar cost. So to a coach with, say, 3 kids who expects them to go to schools like Johns Hopkins, rather than "weather vane" schools like, for example, University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, a gig at an Ivy could be worth an (inflation-protected) $600K or more.

Cornell does give a tuition benefit to the children of its employees, at least it did when my kids were in college in the early 2000's. It is not 100% of the cost of college and the amount of the benefit depends on when the employee started working at Cornell. I believe you currently need to be employed full time for 10 years before the benefit vests and the benefit can be applied to other schools -- not just attending Cornell.

I believe staff had to be hired before 1983 to get the full tuition benefit. Not sure about the date for faculty. I attended under the 100% benefit, but CU always managed to find $1,000 or so each semester in “fees” that were not covered by the benefit.

If I remember corrcectly, the fees might have been partially covered by the New York State TAP grants I got.

Seems I may have opened a can of worms by bringing this up. For those who are unaware of the way things commonly work in higher ed these days, there are several gotcha's in any discussion of tuition. Chief among these are "fees." Especially at state universities it's common for tuition increases to be modest, while "fees" go through the roof. This practice allows university administrators and politicians to pat themselves on the back ("Look at what a good job we've done keeping the cost of college low: tuition at weather vane U. has gone up on 3% over the last 5 years.";) while the real cost of attending increases due to fees for computer labs, the new gym, a faculty/staff parking garage, scholarship funds, and what have you.

But, of course, I'm sure Cornell's administration would never stoop to such deceptive practices.

Cornell absolutely does distinguish between tuition and fees....When my first child entered CALS in 2000, fees constituted about half of the non-housing/dining bill we had to pay. Which took us by surprise and therefore required loans since we had only budgeted to pay room and board thinking "tuition" was free. I started at Cornell in the 70's so my kids went to school tuition free. Who knew it would actually cost us less to send a kid to the Hotel School than to the Ag School.

Reasonably large gap from our #8 to Q’s #7 in PWR. We are on top of a large closely bunched teams in PWR. Will see how it works out at the end of the day.

Q to #6 with the win

This article has been up for some time, but we missed it. Ty Pelton-Byce has transferred from Harvard to Wisconsin.

The article says:
CHN
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound forward played two seasons at Harvard, but then was ruled academically ineligible.

I'll leave it to you readers to explain what it takes to be academically ineligible at an institution with notorious grade inflation and related academic coddling of students.

- Marshall Warren (felt better pasture at BC)
- Ryan Doolin, Brad Cocca, and Jon Russell (likely left in search of more playing time)

I don't quite understand what either of those two sets of reasons ("pasture"?) (more playing time where?) actually means. But Harvard's and Cornell's recruiting philosophies are basically polar opposites at this point.

Men's game will go off at 6. This is the 7th iteration of this tournament the successor to the Governor's Cup. It's likely 2 or 3 of mayors of Troy, Albany and Schenectady will be in the house.

To my knowledge the Governor never showed at the tourney named in his honor.

#26 won the shootout 3-2 in 6 rounds.
As you wrote, RPI was the better team in the OT. It also was the better team in the 2nd period. Union was the better team in the 1st and 3rd periods. That seems to indicate that the rink was tilted to one end.

Considering how RPI has played the last few years, mediocre is a distinct improvement. :-)

And RPI's women won 2-1 over a surprisingly strong Union team in the earlier game. Lovisa Selander's 29 saves puts her just 148 behind the NCAA career mark in saves with eight regular season games remaining.

Harvard's loss today knocks down Cornell's adjusted RPI from .5581 to .5549. With Harvard being a 3 time opponent, and also a two time opponent of many of our opponents, they impact our RPI more than our other opponents. Also, their dropping in PWR affects our Quality Win Bonus points.

The "since 2016" RichH is referring to is the calendar year, not the 2015-2016 season - BC's NC record in 2016-2017 was pretty much normal given their overall record.

BC didn't win any NC games last season but they managed to finish first in Hockey East, which is supremely weird unless Hockey East as a whole was terrible last year. This year is clearly a down year for them - if they keep pace it'll be the first losing season Jerry York has suffered since his Bowling Green days.

I think BearLover just means that the more games you play, the higher the likelihood that you wind up with injuries. And that that higher likelihood may outweigh the additional experience gained by playing more games and starting the season earlier.

Or perhaps not. I'm sure BearLover will explain.

Because fewer games = fewer chances for your players to get injured.

Though thinking about it more now, the games we skip occur at the beginning of the season, so that would really only help us with especially long-term injuries.

Brutal if true. All these injuries make me think the Ivies playing fewer games overall might make up for having to start the season late.

Why is that? We certainly have had our share of injuries this year and just last night another terrible one.

Agree with Jim. Injuries are random (except when the result of retaliation or poor conditioning) and the degree to which someone suffers is extremely random. For example I give that poor official who died because he slipped during warmups.

What really sucks is that we have some important injuries that could have been prevented. Andreev's was because of a cheap shot from behind, but AFAIK the ECAC didn't do anything extra to that asshole Baughman. And, according to Schafer Haiskanen's happened because the refs waited too long to call icing.

Minnesota State was behind late in the 3rd and yet won in OT.
