    Re: Bentley Falcons 2013-2014: No offseason. No excuses.

    Good Luck to the Bentley Falcons this weekend.

    As an RIT fan and a season ticket holder at Army, the Falcons have certainly taken care of business (5-0) in regards to the two teams I follow most closely in the AHA. My seats are behind the visitors bench at Tate so I even sat with some Bentley fans when they last visited Tate on Valentines Day. Good people.

    You have a strong team, it would be nice to see your senior class make it to the BCA.

    Between 3 and 9 games remaining for Gensler and Komm to add to their records, although I am sure that they would be fine with just a bunch of W's. :-)

    Cannot argue with any of those choices, Jeff. :-)

    Now, let's see if the Falcons (coaches and team) can take the program to the next level this postseason.

    Good interview, Dan.

    I had not realized that the Falcons did not split any AHA series this year; they only lost series to Mercyhurst, Niagara, and Sacred Heart, of course.

    Also, the Falcons did not lose any of their six OT games this season, winning two.

    I think that special teams will decide the games this weekend. Falcons need to stay out of the penalty box, and resist getting even when things get physical. A couple PPGs could make the difference.

    I think that Canisius is the most dangerous lower seed team in the AHA quarters this year. Last year they gave Quinnipiac, eventual NC runner up, a real scare in the first game of the NCAA East regionals, as they led the Bobcats 3-1 midway through the third, only to give up three unanswered goals over six minutes to end their run. Bentley cannot let Canisius get a lead in any game this coming weekend.
    Canisius plays very well in terms of clogging the defensive end. This is the part that worries me. If Bentley is going to win this weekend, they'll need to match them defensively. If Bentley's D can beat the Canisius O, then eventually the Canisius D will crack under the Bentley O. I know that this is A LOT easier said than done. Bentley has to be prepared to win some tight, close games. If they blow out the Griffs, then it's an added bonus. But they'll need to win some 2-1, 1-0 games this weekend I think.

    This team is battle tested, and that's what scares me the most. BUT, it's what makes playoff hockey great.

    I think so. And, if Army loses, Mercyhurst would host HC or RIT, and Bentley would host Canisius, as Dan predicted.
    Here's what I have for possible matchups next week.

    RMU Loss
    MH v Army
    BEN v HC\RIT
    UCON v CAN
    AFA v NIAG

    With a RMU Win
    MH v HC\RIT
    BEN v CAN
    UCON v NIA
    AFA v RMU

    A little confused by the AFA \ UCON rankings as their tied in points (must be a tie breaker scenario) so this is giving UCON the edge in the standings over AFA.

    If teams finish off the series tonight, it'll be Canisius coming ot Bentley next week with #9 RIT heading to Mercyhurst. I have a feeling we're going to see some 3 game series. There were also 2 double-OT games, with Niagara wiping out AIC, 1-0, and RIT up-ending HC.

    Yup, Army and the Cross pushing to third game.

    Dan:
    RMU at Air Force
    Niagara at UConn
    RIT at Bentley
    Sacred Heart at Mercyhurst

    Chris:
    Holy Cross at Mercyhurst
    RMU at Air Force
    Niagara at UConn
    Canisius at Bentley
