How did they get so old? I’ve identified some (see attachment). Is there anyone out there old enough who can identify the rest? Uncertain about 10 Stewart and 11 Brush. Corrections appreciated. Great memories.

All good on the uniform numbers. And the only ones I would have recognized were Hughes and McCutcheon, as I had seen John at MSG '19 (and prior years) and Cutch on TV when he was an assistant for the Sabres.

From left to right (more or less):

Ed Ambis (17) is at the extreme left, holding the Cropper (1) jersey with Bill Duthie (16) and Dave Westner (10 -> should be 20). Ron Simpson (2) in background. Doug Stewart (3 -> should be 10) is holding the Lowe jersey, and Ian Orr (22) the Ryan jersey. Between them are Bob Aitchison (8) and Bob Rule (1, the bald one in the background). Giuliani (15) and Hughes (21) are correct. The face partially obscured by Hughes belongs to Bill Perras (5). McCutcheon (9) is correct; he's holding the Lodboa jersey with Craig Brush (11). Between them in the background is Mark Davis (3). Fullan (18), Higgs (12) and Pettit (7) are correct. The guy at the extreme right is Ken Gilstein, the manager, who graduated from my high school (Erasmus Hall, Brooklyn) a year ahead of me.

Ed Ambis from Ambis industries- who made skate sharpeners and turned my skates into lethal razors? How did I not know this!?

Ed Ambis ‘72 was my dentist when I lived in Ithaca following retirement. Ambis Industries, now closed, was owned and operated by his late brother Philip. Talking about hockey with Ed made my root canal more bearable. Philip played hockey at Elmira College.

Ed, as I recall, played on the fourth line with Brush and Westner.

Ed, as I recall, played on the fourth line with Brush and Westner.
The 4th line was Stewart-Brush-Ambis.

1st line: Petit-Hughes-McCutcheon
2nd line: Ryan-Fullan-Bertrand
3rd line: Aitchison-Duthie-Westner
4th line: Stewart-Brush-Ambis
spare fwd: Perras
1st D: Lodboa-Lowe
2nd D: Higgs-Giuliani
5th D: Simpson
6th D: Davis or Orr
G: Cropper
emergency backup (thankfully no emergencies): Rule

At the time, as did everyone, we largely used 3 lines with the 4th line getting maybe two shifts (or less) a period.
Similarly we used two pairs on D, with Simpson getting an occasional shift instead of Higgs.

In the NCAA tournament, Bertrand was not eligible due to some obscure ruling that at age 25 he had played organized hockey for too long (perhaps someone can elaborate here). Westner moved up to Bertrand's spot on the 2nd line, Brush played right wing on the 3rd line and Perras centered the 4th line.

Wow, I’ve seen a few of the clips from that game, including Lodboa’s 3 x 5 shortie, but have never seen this 28 minute reel. Fantastic stuff. They sure loved taking standstill slap shots from the point in 1970.

For anyone who was there, what was the feeling like going into the 3rd period tied? And I have to imagine going down two men up by just one had people on edge.

Thank you, Jeff! Thank you, Garth! I was there, great to relive that game! The commentator, however, reminds me of the guy who narrated those health movies way back in junior high.

Thank you for the clarification. I always loved going down there- there were old (to me) Cornell Hockey pictures on the wall and I guess I assumed they were his sons, at the time.

The long periods of silence, however, were refreshing. He'd introduce a segment and then let you watch in peace.

Both Lodboa and Giuliani came to Cornell as forwards (as did earlier All-Americans Harry Orr and Bruce Pattison) and were moved to defense. Ned liked mobile defensemen who could move the puck up ice for quick breakouts. This game showed the payoff.

Absolutely! I now mute much of the NFL games (particularly Tony Romo). Everything I want to know is on the screen.

They sure loved taking standstill slap shots from the point in 1970.

Back in the day, Larry Fullan had arguably the hardest slap shot in college hockey. The puck never seemed to be more than six inches off the ice.

When I was in grad school, my roommate and I were skating at Lynah in summer ‘71. Dick Bertrand saw us and asked if we would be interested in playing in a no-checking summer league. Foolishly, I agreed. What Dick didn’t mention was that several Cornell players, including Fullan and Bill Hanson (no relation to the three Hanson brothers of Slap Shot fame) would participate. At one point, Fullan took a slap shot from just inside the blue line when I was about six feet away. Fortunately the shot hit the toe of my skate and not my flimsy shin guard. Blocking a Fullan slap shot was the highlight of my hockey career. I still have the dented skate.

For anyone who was there, what was the feeling like going into the 3rd period tied? And I have to imagine going down two men up by just one had people on edge.

I was much more tense during the Wisconsin semi. Wayne Thomas was stopping everything and we were down 1-0 going into the 3rd. Even after we got the two goals, those last 8-9 minutes seemed to take forever.
As great as Lodboa was offensively in the final, he was that good defensively in the Wisconsin game. In the 3rd period, it seemed that every time Wisconsin attacked, Lodboa would steal the puck at the blue line. I clearly remember exclaiming to my friend sitting next to me "Lodboa won't let them cross the blue line!"

Agreed! For me, that "special person" is Chris Collinsworth. Put a sock in it, Chris!!!

I was there in 1979 shooting right next to the WHCU broadcast box hearing Roy Ives screaming out the call! Arthur narrates the video ... YouTube Video

Totally agree. The last 9 minutes against Wisconsin after Bill Duthie scored the go-ahead goal were nerve wracking. Lodboa and the defense played spectacular with a lot of support from the forwards.

..... Lodboa and the defense played spectacular with a lot of support from the forwards.

It's nice to see that (support by the forwards) has carried over to Mike's teams... That was not so much the case during Bertrand's era.

I was there for the third period and OT. And that's all that mattered.
