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.

I don't think this was caught in the last thread when we discussing Colton Point leaving, but Heisenberg's latest page shows Colgate, desperate for goaltending, lost their top rated incoming defenseman via decommit to BU.

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.
