    Not that they really don't want to set up another hoop to jump through, but they don't want to raise the ire of the ECACHL either who wants some money out of this event. Instead of tests, heaven knows what the seating arrangements will be. Maybe someone considering attending should shoot off another email to verify you can actually sit next to your spouse, significant other or children. Better safe than sorry or, maybe, just to just stay away.

    Speaking of staying away. Not that a lot of people go to the spring outdoor D3 games anyway, but it appears even outdoors games still require being masked for a couple hours. At the two year mark of the pandemic (just three months less than the entire duration of the Spanish Flu) that is not even lucid. Starting today in this state you do not even need to wear a mask inside primary or secondary schools.
    What if you do not want to sit with your spouse? Not asking for myself since I know Jenny would cut them off but just in general.

    I received an email a little while ago from SLU letting me know that they had waived indoor mask requirements for this weekend series... : ha ha

    Still available on the website!

    The seating is general admission. No restrictions on where you may sit have been announced, and I doubt the field house staff are going to be asked to intervene in people's seating choices.

    I am looking forward to going to the games!

    FWIW, I was able to confirm that testing is NOT a requirement for entry. The rules outlined on the MIH page are in fact the rules for the weekend.

    I am going to try and get tickets and go. I shot an e-mail to boxoffice@rpi.edu to try and get clarification on the entry protocols.

    At least one thing has not been changed and made worse!

    Although RPI won both games against Dartmouth during the regular season, both of them were one-goal games until late in the third period. It wasn't out of the question that with one lucky bounce, Dartmouth could have forced overtime in one or maybe even both games.

    The last time RPI played in a playoff game that went to overtime was in 2012, when they lost to Clarkson in triple OT (but won the series, two games to one). The rules back then called for the teams to play 5x5 for as many overtime periods as it took for somebody to score and determine a winner. But considering that, in the intervening years, the rules for overtime in the regular season have changed to 3x3 with a shootout if nobody scores, I'm not at all sure that the ECAC hasn't changed the rules for overtime in the postseason as well. Anyone know whether the old 5x5 rules still apply?

    Tickets are live for external visitors. I just purchased mine.

    Dear RPI Men’s Hockey Season Ticket Holder,
    As a follow up to yesterday’s email about ECAC playoff tickets please use the following link to purchase your tickets on line which live. In person sales will commence tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10AM at the HFH Box Office but remember these are General Admission events so no need to do a seat selection. Remember also, we are not selling for the Sunday game until the conclusion of the Saturday contest.

    If you have questions, email boxoffice@rpi.edu or call 518-276-6262. Please know we anticipate a high volume of calls and activity so please be patient while we serve all of our fans.

    For what it's worth, I think the ECAC captures most, if not all, of the ticket revenue at this stage of the season. This is why attendance has tended to drop off for the playoffs--the discounted/free tickets given out during the regular season would become a hard-dollar cost in the playoffs.
