We lost in the fall before the team realized how bad Harvard would be. We lost to their reputation.

This. Last year was similar. We lost twice to a great Harvard team because we didn’t believe we could win.

Or that. When we lost in the fall, Harvard was five games removed from a 24-8-3 seasons with 3 wins over Cornell including the ECAC semifinal game.

They are 3-11-3 entering the @Harvard rematch. Now we know how they stand.

They spent way too much time talking about the PWR. Though, it was refreshing to hear a focus on the PWR rather than the conference standings. The Cornell announcers spend way too much time on the ECAC standings when it’s the PWR ranking that really matters. The Harvard announcers were also wrong that Cornell needs to win out for an at-large bid. Cornell has little margin for error but they definitely don’t need to literally win out.

But to even go to the Pairwise topic when it's your opponent's important storyline is admirable. And what they said about winning out works for me. It is close enough to the truth that it's ok.

It might be wrong but certainly all of this is speculation. I seem to remember people speculating that we'd be below 20. Or was that just one guy?

The color guy correction rink side guy is a little stiff. He also asked a two-part question between periods of the player rather than one and a follow-up.

Also not sure why they use a greenscreen background of the empty rink once the game has started. I mean, Bright actually had some fans there.

When the announcers announce "rink is full" they should have shown on-ice action as the feed, masking the hundreds of empty seats.

But, they were okay announcers and not horrible homers.

the current run includes teams that for the most part helped us in RPI.. the last 10 or so are all teams below us and its losing/Tie to them that hurt us in RPI in the start of the season.

Harv/Princ/Colg/Dart/Quin We got back 3 with Dart tonight. Thats about all you could ask

Looking at the play again, I still wonder why the refs didn't just award a goal when O'Leary was taken down on his way to the empty net. He was definitely tripped and he had already gotten ahead of the defender.

When I saw the replay I thought it was a good poke. Jack was diving to push the puck into the net. He was not brought down by the stick. The stick made contact with him after his sprawled forward. But I only saw one replay and could be wrong.

I will say - they are unfortunately not THAT fluid anymore, especially with the weak Cornell schedule from here. Every loss is going to be really bad. As the guy who said Cornell would have a very good year despite the losses -- when most here were assuming otherwise -- I have a vested interest in hoping my prediction comes true :-) ... so every game is a nailbiter right now.

The cutoff for making the NCAAs is usually around a .54 RPI. Obviously this depends on the number of at large bids, but I'm holding out hope that things will settle around there again. Cornell's currently at .5517, which is pretty good.

Then again, maybe this is just a weird year where the top quarter is way better than the rest of the pack. 11-4-3 is only the 10th best record. I expected we'd be higher up than that.

if go on any kind of a run we get our RPI above .5600 and we move up 3-5 spots.. Are we good enough to do that.

Like unbeaten in their last 7? That kind of run?

Some of us need to chill out about the PWR situation in January and enjoy the rest of the regular season. We’ve barely begun the 2nd half of the league slate. Things are typically still fluid into March. Sheetz.

I will say - they are unfortunately not THAT fluid anymore, especially with the weak Cornell schedule from here. Every loss is going to be really bad. As the guy who said Cornell would have a very good year despite the losses -- when most here were assuming otherwise -- I have a vested interest in hoping my prediction comes true :-) ... so every game is a nailbiter right now.

I cede the point, but I’m still going to watch to see what this team is made of. It appears they’re putting things together both in play and attitude, which could indicate a fun stretch for a team so young.

Looking at the play again, I still wonder why the refs didn't just award a goal when O'Leary was taken down on his way to the empty net. He was definitely tripped and he had already gotten ahead of the defender.
When I saw the replay I thought it was a good poke. Jack was diving to push the puck into the net. He was not brought down by the stick. The stick made contact with him after his sprawled forward. But I only saw one replay and could be wrong.

Still its college rules so even a great poke check that takes him down with the puck is a penalty unlike the Pros. Did they change that rule?

I was also a bit surprised that they didnt call the penalty on the high stick earlier they reviewed. Almost took his helmet off as well on the play. But can they only elevate that to a major in review and decided that it was a minor they just missed?

I think that's correct. It was a definite obvious high stick, but it wasn't a major.

I think the nearby ref there straight up missed it. He was focused on the puck and didn't catch the high stick in his line of vision.

Speaking of the PP, there was a lot more down low movement compared to the past games. No goal came of it but it made the Harvard PKers actually have to work

Especially since you picked the wrong one!

The cutoff for making the NCAAs is usually around a .54 RPI. Obviously this depends on the number of at large bids, but I'm holding out hope that things will settle around there again. Cornell's currently at .5517, which is pretty good.

Then again, maybe this is just a weird year where the top quarter is way better than the rest of the pack. 11-4-3 is only the 10th best record. I expected we'd be higher up than that.

Also skewing the situation is that typically you only need to get the 15th slot to avoid getting bumped out by the Atlantic Hockey autobid, but this year the CCHA winner (who I’m pretty sure gets an autobid) will also almost certainly fall out of the top 16, so we really need to get to 14 if we don’t win at LP.

Classic trap game tonight against the Green and their 9 foot tall goalie.

One of the Harvard announcers posited that Schafer might have asked for the review just to get the refs to realize they missed an obvious call and might "owe us" one later, rather than hoping they would actually call it a major.

I'm feeling good about making it to LP as the 2 or 3 seed then taking down Q in the title game. Then they gotta take us.

But not feeling so good Cornell shouldn't beef up RPI.

Living in Denver now, I long for either. And a good chicken parm sandwich. And a bagel that isn't soggy or cost $15.

Rosenberg's. Not cheap but bagels equal to any I ever had in Ithaca or NYC. Can't help with the chicken parm sandwich, unfortunately.

Like I said, one that doesn't cost $15. I think you need to put up your house as collateral to get a pound of corned beef there.
