    I believe he's still with the Phantoms. Flyers sent him down to free up a roster space and with still 2 games to serve on his suspension and the shortened season, I don't see them calling him up any time soon. It's an unfortunate situation.

    Oh, and yay Bruno!

    This is unfortunately a deserved comment for may RPI fans. We have many among us who whine about refs. That said... they are sometimes pretty bad. I just don't happen to think that they are necessarily worse for us than for others. It's human nature to remember the bad calls against your own team more I guess. One's impression of whether a call was bad or not though is often a reflection of how much one really knows about hockey to begin with.

    Brilliant comment there LS. You managed to insult one team while simultaneously debasing the other's accomplishment.

    As for the Brown folks here... congratulations on a hard fought win. I don't think the better team won but that's hockey. We are 2-2-1 on the season. I for one would enjoy a 6th game with Bailen in the lineup for us. There is an infinitessimally small chance for that to happen this year but in reality it won't happen. It would be like finding an actual Sasquatch or a Cornell Alum who was completely free of smugness. I'm still looking for my first.

    Best luck in AC.

    P'TOOO! Sorry I had to spit out those grapes. They tasted sour. That'll teach me to buy produce in Troy, NY.

    The quest for a title continues!! Great game for Brown all aroound. Except for the last 4-5 minutes of the second, Bruno dominated the Engineers. RPI except for that short period seemed to be playing more individual hockey than team hockey. Undoubtedly RPI missed the senior leadership of its terrific Dman Baillen and Brown took advantage.

    When Brown scored first you could sense it was Brown's night. Even after RPI came back with 2 quick ones, that feeling was not gone. You could tell Brown was not losing any composure. Watching the players come off their shifts, it was a good sign for me that a Brown coach was right with them, apparently with some words of encouragement. I never, never saw that in the Grillo era. But the last two minutes were nonetheless nailbiting times. It took me 15 minutes to get my heartbeat rate down. Thankfully, I only had a 15 minute drive home.

    I took my grandkids to the game again and apparently they heard a Brown fan talking about Roy. They asked me about it, and they could not understand why a player would do that, much less leave Brown. They agreed to take up a collection to buy a bus ticket for Roy to AC!!

    What time is Friday's game? (I know it's the "early one," but when?) I may have to leave work early to catch the stream.

    No, I want you to be classy and respectful like some of your peers (DrDemento, for example). You've been acting like a little kid since yesterday,
    It started a lot earlier than yesterday.

    To paraphrase Mike Rubin after the Clarkson series: Brown's heading to Atlantic City, and RPI is staying right in Troy. And that's all that actually matters.
