  • UVM posted its pre-game press conferences: Of note, the interview with Coach Woodcroft discusses how UVM was without 5 defensemen for the first matchup with RPI and had to use forwards to cover shifts; I was not previously aware of this. Otherwise, RPI not discussed in depth, as reporters focus on UVM players at World Juniors and Woodcroft's involvement with Swedish Olympic team. Coach Woodcroft thanks Coach Smith and RPI for working to move the game to UVM, otherwise it wouldn't have been played. RPI only briefly comes up in Babichuk interview. In response to a reporter question, he notes that the RPI rematch is personally important to him, but doesn't go further and there are no follow-up questions on it.

    • The good news is, RPI athletics resumed this evening with the men's basketball team playing Oswego State.

      The bad news is, they had to play without two of their most reliable starters, Dom Black and Patrick Mahoney. The previously-unbeaten Engineers managed only 46 points and were defeated, 59-46.

      I've heard no official word about why those guys didn't play, but have to suspect that a virus reared its ugly head.

      Hope the hockey team is in good health for their trip to Burlington.

      • Since Army announced this afternoon that they've added a Saturday game against Penn State it's pretty clear they are committed to having hockey at West Point this weekend. As of now I have 3 going. Anyone else planning to attend?

        • Army has a pretty good hockey team this year. They will not be easy.
          Does anyone know what the situation is with Walsh?
          We are a better team with him in the lineup.
          Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

            Agree - and also when Mahshie gets in the line up and gets considerable ice time. He is a big force up front and uses his size deep in the offensive zone and up against the boards. Army is always tough, especially playing at home. years ago, and I assume it is true today, you always felt they were in peak physical condition and came after you for a full 60 minutes. i can recall several games (even ones we won by a fair margin) where the third period we had a lot of trouble keeping up with them. They can be a very physical team and keep that tempo going throughout the entire game.

            • I have not found any media reference to coverage for this game at Army. had assumed no TV or streaming video but had hoped we might see some streaming audio.

              Edit:
              I do have this link from a long time ago - https://goarmywestpoint.com/watch/?Live=2582&type=Live Not sure if it works or is up to date

                Doc, I found this

                https://goarmywestpoint.com/sports/mens-ice-hockey/

                If you click on the game, it takes you to a site that says audio only.
                Hopefully it will work on Sunday.

                  Correction, click on the + sign in the game box. and that will take you to the audio only site.

                  • EHF: Pretty much how I found the site. Better than nothing for sure but this year for us fans certainly has been trying. Trying to watch RPI games on the web. Trying to listen to RPI games on the web. Trying to actually visit a live RPI game in person someplace.

                      • I will be making the trip to West Point tomorrow.
                        I will post what I see when I get back from the game.
                        I know that there will be other RPI fans there. I will be wearing a gray hoodie with the words Rensselaer (in red) and Engineers (in black) on the chest. I you see me, stop by and say hello.
                        Lets go red!!!!!!!!

                          • The Army- RPI game is available at https://flohockey.tv

                            This is the same site that had the four miserable games in Alaska. If I recall correctly, the cost of a subscription is $30/month.The site carries ECHL, Atlantic Hockey and CCHA.
