    Thanks for the update. I think my entire life has been a series of unforeseen circumstances.

    It looks like the ECAC is controlling the streaming of the games. And they only show ESPN+ as a place to watch the games.
    I don't know about WRPI. Maybe Jericho can tell us more about that.

    Final. Harvard 3 Princeton 0.
    Union will host Princeton while Brown travels to St. Lawrence.

    So here is the potential playoff matchups.
    Of course RPI-Dartmouth and Colgate-Yale are set.
    if Princeton loses in any fashion, they will play Union regardless of in regulation, OT, or shootout.
    If Princeton wins in OT or by shootout, they will finish 9th since they have the tie breaker over Brown and will play at SLU.
    if Princeton beats Harvard in regulation, they will tie for 8th with SLU and would have to go to the second tie breaker since they split their season series, each winning in regulation time. And I’m too lazy to go through the second tie breaker. If anyone wants to do that, I’ll take your word for it.
    looking like Princeton will not solve Harvard's #1 goalie today and are losing 2-0 late.

    She absolutely, positively doesn't get a Covid redshirt year. If they could have, many would have scheduled her Senior Night years ago.
    Or several years earlier.

    You are correct, Waite21. According to ecachockey.com, the first tie breaker is total points earned in head-to-head matchups. Since Dartmouth’s win came in regulation and Yale’s in OT, Dartmouth earned 4 points to Yale’s 2.

    So Dartmouth comes to HFH next weekend, while Yale goes to Colgate.
    I do not know what the rule is for tie breakers, but if you go to the ECAC web site and look at the standings, they have Yale above Dartmouth.
    I don't know what that means either. Just sayin'

    I just got around to watching the final moments of the game and the senior ceremony. I can't say I was surprised by anyone other than Helsen (until they introduced his wife and I realized that he may have very good reasons for wanting to get on with his life) but I had been cautiously hoping one or more of the guys that are eligible for the Covid bonus year might take advantage of it. Unless we have some undisclosed commits, we are desperately in need of a few more defensemen (at most 5 returning and only 1 known commit since McDonald is this year's winner of the Huxley Memorial Forever the Enemy award). Smith will undoubtedly be spying the transfer portal for at least one of them. Up front we have some interesting prospects coming in but no big goal scorers to replace 6 guys that scored 51% of our goals (57% if you add the graduating defensemen). Hopefully one or more of the depth guys Smith has been cultivating will break out Linden-style or we are going to struggle even more to score. Fortunately, I think we have our goalie for the next few years so, while we need to add another goalie, we won't need to depend on him for much more than intermittent duty.
    Johnson and Hallbauer are eligible to return along with Helsen, but I don't expect them to. Besides for Smolinski, we need at least two new d-men. I suspect that Smith know who will enter the transfer portal and might be interested. There also could be an additional freshman.

    Sounds good. Do we want Yale to beat Colgate? I think we do.
