The purpose is to understand what you are doing, rather than to get the right answer. ;)

But did you show your work? ;)

OK-I know I am not a mathematician and you guys correct me all the time. But how do you play in 28 of your team's 20 games? is that New Math or something?????

It's easy if you can't type. :)

Engineers currently sitting @ 14 in PWR & 13 in KRACH.

Union is appropriately ranked in PWR. :p:D

Jen and i were there. I cannot remember all the details but Jen's memory for everything is typical woman (she remembers everything and haunts me with things I said 40 years ago). She recalls how dirty the Russians played. It was like their primary purpose was intent to injure. Sticks were high and boarding was just constant.
I was at a Russian exhibition game - so if there was only 1 of them it happened after 1985 because I arrived at RPI in '84 and the game was played no earlier than the '85-'86 season.

In the game I attended, RPI took a lead midway through and the the Russians took over to win but something like 7-4. Can't recall if Juneau was on the team yet. It may have been his Freshman year as I recall thinking the team was on the rise again. It also could have been during the Hejna/Fereirra years between Oates and Juneau. So that makes it '86 or '87 I think.

This matches what I remember from the game. RPI did hold a lead but the Russians seemed to take control as the game went on. HFH was packed and the building was buzzing, almost a Freakout-type atmosphere. I think Jamie Bellanca was in net for RPI but it could have been Steve Duncan too. Can't remember exact year but sometime in '86 or '87 sounds spot on.

Actually considering Ralph's age, I believe it to be the 'Old' Math

We have that in common as Jericho pointed out to me yesterday.

JM: That is about right. I know it was after the 85 championship year for certain and I would have placed it as you did. I thought it was Juneau's freshman year but I am just not certain. And yes, I recall we led at some point into the second period and then we started to get physically beaten.
I want to say 87-88 only because I seem to remember we started fast that year and after the Christmas time period we collapsed for the rest of the season only winning a few games. But i am just not sure.

Yes! I remember thinking it would be a disaster with 2 new goalies. I also remember hating the game because RPI was goaded into playing their chippy style.

If Servinis missed any games for that reason, it was only one game since he played in 28 of RPI's 29 games. http://www.augenblick.org/rpi/h_05sc.html


Yes that's correct, their suspensions were not equal because Oates played more Tier 2 than Servinis did.

Does anyone have any new information on the return of Riley or Parker? We could sure use them for the coming weekend. Also, is Gillespie injured or just in the chateau bow wow???
We are going to need everyone on board for two really big games this weekend.

I would think it was a rotational sub; Yale's a faster team, whereas Kenny's strength is in, well... his strength. Appert has a tendency to put in players that he thinks will "match up well", even if they don't get much ice time in games. I'm sure he'll be back next week.

Next weekend, despite the records and the standings, you have 4 teams that are really pretty much all in the same level. Matching up on the ice will be the difference. You could see 4 blowouts and you could see 4 ties. Obviously we will fare better if we can get healthy but we must take advantage of home ice and the last change that it brings for each face off. And speaking of face offs...............

There's a great swarm story that I enjoy telling. Before the 85 championship game, there were thousands of Michigan State fans in the building (disappointed that they were eliminated he week before) and weren't really sure who to root for. So Swarm came out on the ice waiving a MSU flag. I'll never forget looking at the MSU fans chanting Let's go Red!
Puckman is good, but the "bug" was better!

Anyone see either of the Brown or Yale games and have some insight into how they controlled so much of the play the first 10-15 minutes of each game?

Good News . . . Bad News . . .

With Minnesota State's win today over Minnesota in the consolation of the North Star College Cup, it assures RPI of going into next week at #14 in PWR. So for the first time in a few years we will be in Moy's Bracketology discussion this late in the season. The bad news is that we would likely be paired with North Dakota probably in Cincinnati. But then again revenge would be sweet.

If RPI makes the NCAA field and doesn't wind up in Albany the committee would seriously need to have their heads examined. I know that they don't HAVE to put them there, as the ECAC picked Union as host, but should they be there? Absolutely.

Juneau played against the russians. i remember one highlight was Juneau faking a defenseman out of his shorts but not scoring in all alone. That RPI defenseman from alaska played but didn't last very long. Clint Thomas joey's freshman year
