    That's a hell of a double-whammy for RIT, though. They're going to have to aim higher than just a weekend split on road trips this year. Why did RIT cancel the Air Force trip?

    I don't have numbers to back it up, but i feel like our away record has been better than our home record anyway, so maybe that's a good thing?

    The games were cancelled due to COVID protocol: https://www.uscho.com/2021/02/04/rit...d-19-protocol/

      Yeah, this seems ridiculous to punish the Tigers for games cancelled under COVID protocol.

      But, Mickey Mouse league gonna Mickey Mouse. Atlantic Hockey is a joke. Even if you take out that the Air Force series was switched, they'd still have a 12-14 home/road imbalance. Did they just drop the RMU games and call it a day instead of, you know, actually bothering to make a new, balanced schedule?? What about teams who were scheduled to play RMU more than twice? Are they going to have less conference games so they'll have to go by point % again? This isn't even acceptable for a D3 league, much less a supposed D1 league.

      And RIT's been much better at the Pollesini the last couple of seasons. In conference play: 5-0-1-0 (W-L-SOW-SOL) last year compared to 2-5-0-0 on the road (2-7-0-0 if you include playoffs). And 8-3-1-2 (28 pts in 14 games) two years ago at home with crowds compared to 7-6-0-1(22 pts in 14 games) on the road.

      Now that I've looked that up, we played more road games than home games in conference last year, so if that's the rationale for making us go to Air Force, why aren't other teams coming to the GPC more often? Absolute absurdity. (Again, not that I'm advocating for that - every team should be playing the same amount of home and road games and the same amount of games total as every other team). EDIT 2: Hell, Air Force had a freaking PLAYOFF series scheduled for the GPC cancelled by COVID in 2019-2020, why does last year's series matter but that one doesn't??

      RE-EDIT: Miscounted teams lol. Let's try again. A 10 team schedule really shouldn't be hard to re-jigger. They could even have RIT go to Air Force while maintaining home/road integrity. It's not that hard!

          Shane Madolora will moonlight as goalie coach for the Buffalo Beauts. https://beauts.nwhl.zone/news/beauts...coach-madolora

          Or maybe this means he's moonlighting for RIT. Not sure which.

            Is it moonlighting if you are volunteering? I believe he is a volunteer goalie coach for RIT.

              No. According to Oxford.
