    I will be there and would like ND to actually put up a "fight" for once.
    I want no fight on Fake Hockey East's part today. But like many, I'm a little nervous but cautiously optimistic.

    This is exactly what is making some of us just a tad uneasy.

    Has any Lowell fan defended that hit or said it wasn't a penalty? Not that I've seen.

    Should have been called but wasn't. Grow up.

    I don't know what you are referring to (really, not sarcasm) but any elbow to the head is not Ok. I don't care who does it, the player belongs in the box for a long time. Work in medicine and have a hubby who was on the advising committee for NCAA re: concussions. Have seen some scary stuff result from a seemingly minor hit (as in symptoms not resolving for months later). Anything that hits the head or that could cause coup contracoup injury isn't OK. Right now Hockey is their life but for most of them it will be done in a few yrs. Concussion has long term effects that are cumulative and scary (even if the NFL pretends it isn't so).

    I dunno, it was late, but I'm not sure about blindside

    Also, I always find it strange that so many people consider Cornell a "dirty" team when there are actual dirty teams in the conference (like say Dartmouth). Neverending reputation I guess.
    I think you are barking up the wrong tree! Not once did I say that Cornell was a "dirty" team and for you to insinuate that Dartmouth is is 100% inaccurate as they field a much smaller team relying on speed through the neutral zone especially in transition. I think you are confusing big and physical with "dirty". FYI IMHO the hit on Smith was not as dirty or malicious as it was way late on a defenseless player.

    Yes, Cornell was quite the bunch of dirtbags. Agreed that there were some just head-scratching moments when you couldn't understand why penalties weren't being called. Lots of extracurriculars taking place on the part of Cornell, often right in front of the refs. They finally had to call something after that hit to CJ with around 6 left in the third, totally uncalled for. And it was a 5 minute major for interference? Crazy.

    What we saw was not clean play. cheap stabs after play, elbows to the head seemed to be a specialty in the corners. There were a few I really don't understand how the ref didn't call them. I get the intensity and the let them play thing but there were at least 2 really nasty hits from behind right in front of us. Our guy was facing us and the Cornel guy slammed him from behind complete with the head snap into the glass. Not OK. Wouldn't be OK if our guy did it either.

    Watched just a little of the Goofs and the ugly gold hats. Both sides seemed like they were big, slow and no flow. Left before it got interesting. Got back in time to see the goal that wrecked the OT game I wanted to see.
