      Yes, I was thinking about that too...but chose not to write it. Of course they had their opportunity but because they didn’t take advantage of it that shouldn’t mean the team should be subjected to playing their playoff games on a Wednesday, days before the other series begin. Its just not a good look for Atlantic Hockey. The RIT players may be good with it or might be asked not to say anything but as fans of the team we want to see the team be afforded the same opportunities that the other teams in the league are afforded.

        Webster is booked. Here's the venue... I watched the women's team play a game there against another D-III school back in the day. Almost got hit by a puck standing by the blue line! 🙃

        Their women's team plays at another rink, that may be where they are playing!

            At least if RIT wins this series, they get a couple extra days of rest before the semi-finals? (trying to be positive here...)

              It might help a bit that RIT is on Spring Break next week while Sacred Heart has classes. It is obvious that Atlantic Hockey is focused on the student part of student-athlete.

                This will benefit whomever wins the series to get extra rest as they likely play AIC in the semifinals. If I were an AIC player - I would be more upset about that.

                  I would not be surprised if RIT objected. However, if the league stepped in because of Sacred Heart's lack of rink availability and stated these were when the games could be played. Imagine the mess if one team had to play this weekend and then have to play this series.
                  If I was the AD of SHU I’d reach out to RIT and in the interest of fairness ask if the Pioneers could play at RIT where Sacred Heart has already enjoyed success this year.
                  If I were AD of SHU, no way am I sending my team on the road - especially to one of the teams that draws a lot of fans.
                  Another disappointing move by Atlantic Hockey.
                  I can agree - but I don't know what else they could have done. As stated before, RIT just needed to beat Canisius to host this series, but could not get it done. They don't deserve and didn't earn the right to host quarterfinal games.

                    Canisius, Army, and Holy Cross didn’t earn hosting a first round series but they are not playing on a Wednesday. 😄

                    I agree there is probably little that can be done this season but maybe take a look at these agreements with these big rinks for future seasons to block out dates and times for the possibility of hosting college playoff hockey. Otherwise in a cost saving measure RIT can shut down their rinks and play at the BCA squeezing in whatever ice time they can get around the Amerks home schedule and whatever other events going on at the BCA.

                      What about the Milford Ice Pavilion? Are the Pioneers no longer welcome there?
                      Can't we all just get along?

                        SHU fans could carpool in a minivan or two. Forget about a few busloads.

                          Only if none of the top three seeds get upset in the quarterfinals. Definitely not a given in this league.

                            With how pathetic the Tigers went out in the regular season I think RIT has a better chance to beat Sacred Heart at Sacred Heart. They seem to play better away...

                              That's been the case in the past, but they were much better at home than on the road this year. They finished 8-5-1 in conference at home and 5-6-3 on the road. I mean, even the disappointing last week involved one home loss and one away loss.

                              Although Sacred Heart was much better on the road than at home this year...

                                Given how this is about to play out, I suppose we are all looking for a silver lining.

                                Hoping for the best.

                                I do know that the previous audio of Ed and Scott’s broadcast from Webster Bank Arena was particularly sharp as the empty building allowed the microphones to pick up audio from the ice that listeners would not normally hear when a Rink has more than 179 fans in attendance. So there is that.
