    Yes, I meant RPI, not Clarkson, whom we have played. My bad for assuming everyone in the thread wasn't RPI affiliated and confusing you.

    And, you are correct. I just checked and RPI played in UNO's now defunct Maverick Stampede at the start of the 2004-'05 season, which we ended up winning as well, but in which we did not play you as you guys lost to Merrimack in the first round while we opened with and beat Connecticut (the only time we have ever played them) and then beat Merrimack for the tourney crown.

    The tourney you guys hosted was during the '05-'06 season. The Bank of America Holiday Tournament there in Troy, where we beat Providence and Holy Cross, and never faced the Engineers since you lost your first round game in that tourney, too.

    I'd say that makes UNO and RPI the answer to a very interesting trivia question. What two teams in college hockey have played multiple games in the others arena yet have never faced one another? I guarantee you if the answer extends beyond UNO and RPI, it is one mighty short list.

    Your series with them is interesting in the sense that one would think it would be at least some sort of bellwether. I don't know how good ASU's "sea legs" were, yet, when they played Quinnipiac back on 10-15. Other than them, they haven't played another team that is in the caliber of RPI, and, by that I mean somebody that is potential tourney team. ASU hasn't been too good, looking at their numbers. Their goalie that has played the most minutes has a serviceable .923 SV% but he has given up 2.78 GAA per game and has seen a ton of shots, indicative of a pretty bad D in front of him, one would guess. I think they are behind Penn State at the same juncture. Of course, Penn State, even in their old arena, pre-Pegula, was in a facility far superior to the one ASU is playing in, now. Next weekend here in Omaha those two games, by themselves, will outdraw all the home games they play at Oceanside Arena this season combined. They'll get a first hand look at something along the lines of what they are going to have build while they are here, as well.

    I saw their home game against Arizona to open the season. It was reminiscent of a USHL game, frankly.

    By the way, when the heck are we ever gonna play you guys? You are still on what is now the VERY short list of teams we've never played. We won your tourney years ago and never faced you while we were doing so.

    That doesn't compute. RPI never has cakewalks.

    As in "Good night"?. No. Anyway, it's "Knight"

    I have to say, Masters was pretty impressive in the two games I watched ASU vs. Wisconsin. And I don't just mean good for a first year team guy. I mean he played like a good top six guy for just about anyone.

    They have some other guys that can play a little too, and no one should just go completely to sleep on them or it could turn upside down quickly enough. They're not very good overall, but they are hungry.

    Never fear as over the many years that i have followed RPI hockey I have seen some very odd occurrences. We seem to have the knack down better than any other team to make the good look bad and bad look good. We play up to the best in the country and down to the worst. Whatever you are expecting for this weekend, just throw it all out the window and sit back and enjoy the show that RPI TV puts on. Incredibly good hockey coverage from the video side and incredible fair and balanced commentary from the audio side.

    Hopefully the “bug” that hit the Team while out @ ND will be snuffed out this coming week. Heard the bus ride back was pretty bad. That might explain the tired legs this weekend. Where they got the energy to play like they did in that 3rd period & OT I don’t know but they looked really good after 5 periods combined of bad hockey.

    Not much to discuss. Win both games and we stay in a decent position in the standings nation wide. Lose and we will fall precipitously.
