    It took them 8 years since he tried to fight SA.

    Seriously, I do wonder what caused this.

    I think that the SLU game should inspire some positive competition amongst the players. And that can only be good for the team.
    Watching the reserves score some impressive goals should bring out the best in the returning players.
    I look forward to watching the games this weekend.

    Lets go Red!!!!!!!!!

    I got to see the last two periods yesterday and came away very impressed with Watson.
    He has a very good glove and was in position for all of the shots that came his way (and there were many).
    And something I haven't seen from an RPI team in a long time. We took advantage of our chances.
    It was nice to see Walsh back in the line up.
    All in all, is was a great win playing with so many inexperienced players.
    Hopefully we get the "A" team back this weekend.
    We are a better team than our overall record indicates. Losing games in 3 on 3 overtimes makes this team on paper just seem worse. Also, having to be a road team for long periods of time certainly does not help our record. If the schedule settles down, if we get a favorable seed in the ECAC at the end of the season, and if we can stay healthy, we could have a fairly successful run. Before the season I had expected this to be a 20 win season. We might still well be but the Alaska trip did not go as well as i thought it might and the OT losses certainly did not help. Other teams in this league had better show our boys some respect and be ready to play or they will be given a much tougher time than the ratings on paper would indicate.
    And yes EHF-both our young goalies seem like very good NCAA level players and we should be OK at that position for years to come.

    Question- how long must our boys sit out if they are in this Covid protocol? There are only 4 more days until our next game and we cannot play with 17 or 18 players and expect to do well.

    Our schedule is favorable to do well in the last 12 ECAC games. 6 of those games are against Brown, Yale and Dartmouth. These are must wins against bottom 4 teams by points %. Just winning those would get us top 6. The remaining 6 are Princeton, Cornell, Colgate, Quinnipiac and Harvard (2x). Winning 4 of those would all but guarantee a top 4 finish, winning 3 would put them on the 4-5 bubble (depends on who the wins came against. For example, if we swept Harvard as part of those 3, it would be practically guaranteed. If we got swept, it'd be highly unlikely. If we split, it'd be 50-50.). Less than 3, and you're looking at 5 or 6. Excited to see how it plays out, and even if we end up in 5 or 6, we still have a good enough team to get to Lake Placid.
