    Watch out for Quinnipiac as well, They were quite chippy in their loss to Yale and really manhandled them in the first period. Obviously Yale outskated and outpassed the checking, but they physically can and will take a team off of their game if given the opportunity.
    I believe they took both RPI and Union to overtime at TD. Union squeaked out the win, while RPI took the tie. I'm sure Union will be ready for them; we're focused on Princeton first.

      I'm not going to worry about the other possibilities right now, but I do know that finishing lower than sixth is not one of the possibilities.
      I remember back in early January someone saying that RPI should be favored in all but one or two of the remaining games. Yale was one exception mentioned and they won that one. As anyone paying attention in this league the past decade or so can attest, being dubbed a favorite in any particular ECAC game means virtually nothing. This league generates more "upsets" than Saratoga.

      Most seasons we see one or two teams stay healthy, play consistently well and rise to the top. There are usually a couple of teams that sink quickly to the bottom of the standings and stay in there. The middle seven or eight usually jockey for position all season and spots three through seven or eight are in flux until the last regular season game is decided.

      Bring your A game, work like hell in the corners and get good goaltending and you will probably succeed. Fail to do any of that on any given night and you will probably lose.

      This team seems to have gotten its grind-it-out attitude back, along with some injured players, so if they are ready to play Friday night, this could be fun.

      Let's Go Red!

        If you are going to Troy for the Saturday games, don't stay in Sch'dy. Drive about 15-20 minutes east on Route 7 and you will find a slew of hotels near the Northway (I-87). There are Hamptons, Holiday Inns, and independents all over the place.

        If you do stay in Sch'dy. Try Katie O'Byrnes or clinton's Ditch on Erie Blvd for after-game libations and good pub food.

            I hope you are right. I have a question for you. While I enjoy your posts here and your insight, why the RPI thread?
            We don't get too many fans from other schools posting regularly on this thread. Is there some hidden RPI alliance in your past?
            Please don't take this as a negative, just curious.

              Now that is motivation.

                There's also the new Hilton Garden Inn on Hoosick Street about 2 minutes from the RPI campus. Piece of advice: Take a right out of the hotel then take a left at the 15th St light, then a left at People's Avenue. Who knows how long you'll be waiting if you try to take a left on Hoosick. There's also the Recovery Room attached right to the hotel, so it's easy to get something to eat after the game.

                  The first reason, as you probably have seen there aren't a ton of Yale posters on the Yale thread. so to keep myself in the know about ECAC hockey I started turning to other ECAC teams threads for info. It seems that I have gravitated to the RPI thread more often because of the regular RPI posters high knowledge of the game and the league. Out of all of the ECAC team threads it is also the most sociable of the lot. The people here enjoy a good give and take and also have a sense of humor when barbs are tossed. That is why I was surprised at some of the animosity earlier in the week from one poster, but I think that has policed itself. No RPI connection at all BTW. Maybe we will get to meet each other in Atlantic City, in the finals, because Yale owes you guys some payback.

                    I am not sure that I can make AC yet. (I will be trying). However, I do have a current connection to Yale, so we might get to meet next season at the whale.

                      If you happen to go to Houston Field House next year, come say hello (assuming I am there; gas prices have some threats).
