    Mitch Benson in goal.
    Cornell on the board first.

    Cornell 1, Colgate 0, score after one.

    Cornell with beautifully set-up PPG.

    Colgate PPG by Alex Young.
    Jeff Stewart tied it up.

    Cornell 19, Colgate 16, SOG after two.
    Colgate 2, Cornell 2, score after two.

    Man, I am just not very good at keeping up with things on here when I am sitting with friends. I left after 3-on-3 OT (as I hate shootouts), but a friend texted me that we won the shootout, 2-0.

    The bottom line is that is was another good college hockey game (with another late-arriving crowd) and we made the most of this weekend. Mitch Benson again looked great in net, making some remarkable pad saves.

    Anyone at Lynah yet? How does the pre-game crowd look. Students are admitted, right? Maybe a full house? Congrats to the team on the Big W last night.

    Red, I agree. I am in section 9 and it started with Cornell students down low but filled up nicely with Colgate students.
    I drove up from doc in Binghamton and the roads were not great. Snowing and slushy.
    If you go to Cornell thread, 40-Year-Fan has a good summary of the Class of ‘65 Arena experience from a newcomer. I totally agree with him on all points (accessibility, music, fan movement, masking, etc.).

    First I will say I was unimpressed with the crowd at the beginning but by the end of the first there was a good crowd. I do think that a bunch of empty seats is due to covid and weather as some people I know didn’t go because of weather.

    I think the reserved seats stops people getting people in the seats early as you can show up at game time with your seat.

    It was a great hockey game. I am happy for the team. The Youngs and McGuire continue to impress me. The sophomores and freshmen have not experienced playing at Lynah. This should be another great college hockey game. Congrats to the team. Go 'gate!!!!!

    It was great that Manderville scored the winning goal, why didn't Cornell recruit him ? I've always wondered, you would think out of respect for his All American father at Cornell they'd at least give him a shot ? Plus he fits the mold at six feet four.

    Thought the same about McGuire, best game he's played this year ! Cornell's going to be very ornery tonight.

    A well played and physical hockey game...passing, especially out of our own end was much improved, especially compared to the Dartmouth game...we got to stop giving up goals at the beginning of ANY period, but great to get a close win...thought Ryan McGuire played a very solid game and great to see the PP succeed...I echo Tchr Bill's comments (above) and really do wonder if our current AD will improve her game...good for the kids...continue to accrue points and try to finish 5th or 6th...it's doable...

    I'm very happy even if it's just for twenty two hours ! All I'm going to say.

    Never thought I’d see empty seats for this game in my lifetime. Starr would have been packed to the rafters. No brazen students with Big Red gum? Thunder sticks? White towels? Has the entire student body gone woke? Has the athletic dept forgotten how to promote games for spectators or is this all COVID’s fault? The weather? Where was the message that concessions are now open? I had to read about it in a Nicki Moore tweet an hour before the game.

    Guess the stars were aligned just right. Their goalie seemed to have an off-night and our special teams saved the day. Benson gave up his typical few goals which is usually enough to sink us.

    The chemistry is always different for this series, you can feel it, but it never translates to consistency for the rest of our season. This game we held our own and it didn’t look impossible to do. Cornell is always big. Always aggressive. Always has their annoying travel base/band. Always nationally ranked. Yet for some reason, this time, unlike most others, we topped them. Looking at our record now and being only 4 games or so below .500 is typical but the W could be a motivation to step it up and a validation of hard work. We’ll see what tonight brings, but a split on the road is more than I thought we’d ever get though hoping for more.

    Can’t convince me that this win will resurrect my lost faith in DV!

    Well, I obviously didn’t see that one coming, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. After me ragging on the defense most of this season, this was their night… low number of SOG by each team, low number of goals by each team. Mitch Benson stood on his head at times and was luckier-than-heck at times (ping off the pipes, puck sitting in front of empty net). It also got physical and chippy at times, and can’t help but think that tomorrow night at Lynah will be worse. But, we know we can beat ‘em now. Go ‘Gate (and Gate83)!!

    I saw a bunch of students in the seats not the student section. Great win

    Tonight’s win was cathartic for me.

    That’s all.

    Do it again tomorrow.
