I don't think RIT was completely rebuilding, as many of the top players from last year are still on the team. The biggest question going in, and still seems to be, goaltending. Hopefully, Drackett is going to continue to take the job over.
Depends on perspective. They're re-building to what they had prior to last season from last season's disappointing finish, not so much re-building to what they had last season. Yes, much of last season's leadership is still here (aside from Rotolo), but that group proved it needed more to get back to the top of the heap.

We'll be revealing new black jerseys on Friday...hopefully they have more luck in them than our home whites have the past few years ;)

Agree with this. I like how coach mixed the lines this weekend. Also like how Valenzuela seemed to have a more prominent role in the offense. Iíve always looked at him as being a Mitchell feeding a Garbowsky and Gabe has done that well feeding Kerins. Gabe was out there Saturday night without Liam and he seemed to be a little more O minded. Letís not forget the contributions Willet made as well, especially on that second goal on Saturday night. He sees the ice very well as another mentioned here.

I don't know who's calling the play-by-play in this video, but he's fantastic, especially on Abt's second goal: "Oh my god they killed Kenny! Abt with his second of the period!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q0Eqd1y_kw

Nikolai Busko. I watch a few extra Army games a year because of him.

If you watch this weeks NCAA top five plays you will hear Nikolai on play #5, Army's Michael Wilson scoring their second goal of the first period last Friday Night after skating through the RIT defense. Don't have the link but over on the RPI thread Ralph posted the link as RPI had a top five play too.

I was near him when he called the Army/Air Force Semi-Final at blue cross. My ears were ringing after the game, and it was an empty arena...

Is the Time Warner station missing from Rochester's lineup? It's gone from the Albany lineup. No more Niagara or RIT games for us here.

Rochester has them on their CW16 station. The Friday game was advertised on TV during the World Series.

My guide has them showing the game at 10PM tonight for some reason with reruns of Family Feud and then Jane the Virgin on at 9. Which isn't a huge deal (I don't get home from work til 11:30 anyway, and it's hardly difficult to avoid spoilers), but seems....odd nonetheless.

Well I'll be ****ed. Tape delay! I knew this would be a problem. (http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?116156-gt-gt-gt-RIT-Tigers-2016-17-That-was-fun-let-s-go-for-three!&p=6528364&highlight=virgin#post6528364)

This isn't really acceptable. I realize RIT might not have had many options since Spectrum screwed them over, but tape delay to 10pm is just silly. Now I have to set up streaming somehow?

Quality of the video is pretty good, too. Although I could not get it to work through a gaming system (PS4 and PS3)... had to watch on my computer monitor.

However, I have since invested in a Display output to HDMI cable so I can now plug-in to the big TV.

Cheers!!!

Me thinks Drackett plays too far out from the pipes. Glad they won but lucky they didn't end up in a tie

Plays with a lot of energy, maybe trying to do too much in front of the hometown fans, made some big stops towards the end though, glad they sucked it up and got the win, giving up late goals at the end of periods will make any coach go gray fast, let's not let that become our Achille's heel. Still have nightmares from last season.... AIC will want points tomorrow so hope we can play 60 minutes of hockey tomorrow.

Their backup/second goaltender really kept AIC in it after he came in. The concern I have was that the third period was mostly all AIC. Luckily Dracett shook off the 3rd goal to make enough saves to get the win. Hopefully the team will realize you need to play a full game against the Jackets and do so tomorrow.

Yes indeed, but my "Smart" TV couldn't do it. Not sure what the problem was; the video player came up but no content showed. It's just not the same on a 24-inch monitor compared to a 60-inch TV.

I don't really have a problem with that, as he tracks the puck well and he's generally on the angle. He made a rookie mistake on the 2nd goal when he bit on the cross-crease fake when he had a defender there to take that away - which opened up the near post - but largely I don't have a problem with his positioning.

Where he needs to improve is that he seems to fight the puck. At it's best it looks like attacking the puck and that the puck never ends up in a dangerous area, but when he's not playing well it manifests in pucks bouncing off his chest into the slot or at it's worst stabbing at a puck going high and deflecting it into the net, like we saw against RPI. And a lot of this is stuff that very well could get better just from experience. You'd think he's still feeling nerves playing his first few D-1 hockey games. I could certainly see fighting off pucks that are coming into your chest and biting on an early deke as symptoms of that. He really does seem to track the puck and read the play when the other team is established in our zone very well.

And RIT needs to give a set amount of free tickets to students like tonight all the time. It creates such a great atmosphere which in turn will draw more people from the community. 3,500 for AIC (1,000 were free student tickets) is a great crowd.
