Interesting that Sacred Heart booked their arena for next weekend so the home playoff games vs RIT are being moved to mid week. I was told this did not sit well with many at RIT as it makes it almost impossible for any fans and the band to attend the event. Not sure why the league allowed it. Seems like the could have done a thurs/sat/sun thing if nothing else.

Yeah, I don't get why the league permitted it either -- that's really rinky dink. Should have told them: "find another site for the weekend or we'll hold it at RIT."

The fact that Sacred Heart apparently scheduled a comedy show the 1st playoff weekend (I assume the dates have been long known) is itself a comedy show.

FYI, Bobby Valentine (yes, THE Bobby Valentine) is the Sacred Heart AD

Sacred Heart plays in 10,000-seat Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport. Enough to fit the student body in twice over. How about using SHU's old rink? Or the crappy one Quinnipiac used to use before the new $50M hilltop center? I believe this is the previous SHU arena. Love the last part of the old-rink descriptor:

Wikipedia
Milford Ice Pavilion is a 1,000-seat skating rink in Milford, Connecticut. It is home to the Milford Indians co-op high school team, and Sacred Heart University Pioneers men's ice hockey team. The building opened in 1975 and was renovated in 1985. It also serves several local hockey high school and club level teams. It has been the home of the Sacred Heart hockey program since its inception in 1993.

Its sister facility was the Northford Ice Pavilion in North Branford, Connecticut. However, ownership of the Milford Ice recently changed and the two facilities no longer are related (except for the snack bars). [emphasis added]

Having been to the Northford Ice Pavilion in North Branford, Connecticut... a sister facility to that would be nowhere near the level of a college hockey playoffs facility, even for Atlantic Hockey.

Oh wow, I had no idea this was happening, just that RIT, by finishing 5th, had managed to land in the donut hole of no home playoff series (too high to play in the first round, and too low to host the quarterfinals). They should definitely make SHU play at RIT if they can't provide a rink on the standard game nights, and I'm not just saying this because it would give me a chance to take Siddharth to a playoff hockey game at the Polisseni Center. :-D

One thing that makes the current plan of Wed-Thu-Fri games at SHU more palatable to RIT is that next week is our Spring Break. So student fans can actually make the road trip, student athletes don't have to miss classes, and attendance would probably be down if they had the series at RIT anyway.

because it is breaK RITS kids will likely not be attending anyway, but i do know because of the mid week game the band will not be going as planned.

attendance was always gonna be light, but few RIT fans taking 2-3 days off from work for sure.

511 people showed up for the homes games 3 weeks ago vs RIT vs almost 2000 at RIT..

Only the NCAA says student athlete, I thought. Eventually it'll be elevated to scholar athlete.

heard that some of the higher ups at RIT had rearranged schedules to be around for the weekend trip no matter where it was and support the team.. mid-week games messed that up and some very senior people at the school not happy the way this all played out.

The games have been hilarious:

Wed: Sacred Heart, 9-4
Thu: RIT, 7-3

Composite score by periods after 2 games:
RIT 5 2 4 - 11
SHU 3 5 4 - 12
