Early betting percentages have us with a 23% chance to win the first game. As Wicked says, we have a puncher's chance but I suspect we have to land the first punch for that to happen. First game is more important than it was against Dartmouth as having to try to win two in a row at Harvard is just more than anyone should ask.
Union is at 16% at Clarkson and SLU at 4% at QU. Colgate at Cornell is obviously much closer.
I do not want the season to end but if it happens, it was simply a great comeback this weekend from one game down and of course from down 31 with only 16 minutes remaining in game 3.Take the shortest distance to the puck and arrive in ill humor

For what it's worth, I believe it was 30 years ago today, March 7, 1992, that #10 RPI knocked off #1 Harvard in Cambridge (err, Allston) in the singlegame elimination in the ECAC quarterfinals. If I recall, that result prompted the ECAC to scrap the singlegame elimination format. Most of us probably remember the next weekend RPI advanced to play SLU in the ECAC semis at the old Boston Garden and led 53 after 2 periods, but SLU rallied to win it in OT despite a valiant effort in net from Neil Little. It is also probably the only time Cornell fans have ever rooted for RPI. I'm hoping the Engineers capture a little of that magic from their postseason upset of the Crimson 30 seasons ago.

We really travelled well in those days. When Jeff Gabriel tucked in the Harvard goal after a mass scramble around the crease you would have thought from the roar that it was played at HFH. That game at the Garden on the other hand, will always stick in my craw. Throwing the puck? Late in the game one of our small, fast forwards  can't remember any more which one it was  stretched well over his head to spike down an airborne puck near the Saints blue line and was called for the aforementioned penalty. In all my years of watching thousands of games I don't think I've ever seen a comparable call. It didn't look to me that he ever closed his hand on the puck, just reaching over his head to knock it forward in one motion  roughly equivalent to a spike in volleyball (i.e. batting the puck than throwing it). Of course SLU scored on the ensuing power play. It was a truly gutwrenching loss as our underdog team left it all on the ice.
