    What a game! A real nail-biter to the end: a 2-1 OT win for Cornell over Quinnipiac. Both teams were rolling. Both goalies were sharp. Both defenses solid. All three goals were scored in a man-advantage situation.

    Very proud of the Big Red in bouncing back. Stienberg who had returned to the lineup on Friday, was out again, replaced by Motley. Schafer still out.

    Pecknold showed what a class act he is by disputing the winning goal for no reason. Slight interruption in celebrations.

    Crowd was lively, but sparse. The official attendance was identical to last night's 2133. That apparently is the current COVID capacity. But again, I'd estimate actual attendance at about 1000 with about 200 students.

    Indeed, too many folks looking to Quinnipiac as the big game this weekend, forgetting we needed to beat Princeton first. We didn't. Possible reasons, the Red were outskated in the first half of the game: looking ahead, decimated Lynah crowd (listed at 2133, but that must have been sold tickets; I'd guess 1000 at best in attendance, student sections <200; tickets were COVID-limited and windchill -8F), absence of Andreev (he is the beast that energizes the team), Princeton rebounding from their loss 0-9 to Quinnipiac.

    Princeton totally outskated and out-played the Red the first half of the game and was leading 3-0. Ben Syer (coaching again as Schafer still sidelined by COVID) claims there was a major penalty missed before the third Princeton goal; he uses the lengthy review to lambast the team for their lack of effort. The team responds and starts buzzing, but too little too late. Cornell gets a goal in the 2d half of the 2d, but not another until 17:05 of the 3d. Princeton strikes back at 18:05 to make it 4-2. Goalie pulled, Cornell scores to make it 4-3 at 19:11; Princeton scores an ENG at 19:36; Cornell scores an EAG at 19:50 and that was the game: 5-4 Princeton.

    Matt Stienberg, the leading scorer until he was sidelined by injury, made a return, but not an impact. Ben Berard, also returning, got an assist and the final goal. Now we just have to play the #1 team in the nation. . .

    Saturday's game with Quinnipiac will match two teams with decisively different approaches to COVID and recruitment. Quinnipiac, of course, played last year so had a more continuous process, without a year's hiatus. It has also taken advantage of the eased transfer portals and has five graduate players who have played elsewhere in Division 1: St. Cyr at Notre Dame; Less at Dartmouth; Stillwell at Brown; Chau at UMass; Mendel at Denver. Interestingly, on its online roster list, none of these previous playing histories are listed; they are listed if you go to the "full bio" for each player.

    In contrast, Cornell didn't play last year. In addition to that disruption, it lost players to transfers such as Galajda going to Notre Dame. It has no transfers from other hockey programs. Three of last year's seniors did stay as undergraduates, each adding additional course work to get additional minors in each of their programs in engineering, business, and hotel administration.
    Sounds like Cornell doesn’t have a chance tomorrow….also sounds like you have the reasons why already well established. You should worry about Princeton first….maybe one of those look ahead games

    Game remarkably similar to the earlier game at Lynah: Cornell not at its best, but good enough. Tough defense, keeping Yale on the boards. Yale skaters didn't impress me as much as they did at Lynah. Tupker line was the most energetic for Cornell. Shane good in the shutout, but his coming out and icing the puck shows he needs more experience.

    Cornell's attendance policies through January 31. Limited capacity. No tickets sold on game day. Existing season tickets holders may attend (they have been selling them to previous season ticket holders since December). Student tickets will be limited; no student season passes. All attendees must be vaccinated or have very recent negative test. All attendees must be masked. Cloth masks no longer acceptable; surgeon's masks acceptable, but N-95 or KN-95 preferred.

    According to College Hockey News, Friday's Yale game has been postponed due to COVID.

    Coach Schafer (who already was not going on this road trip because of COVID) reports the travel on the Western trip was hellacious: "We had three brutal trips. Twenty-nine hours to Arizona, didn’t arrive until 2:30 am in Fargo on Thursday, and the guys got back to town at 4 am on Monday morning after traveling all day Sunday."

    This weekend feels like a trap. Emotional high by sweeping UND, now another trip, games 8 and 9 of this long trip, and a Yale team that is not as strong as they've been in the past. Brown is always a tussle in PVD. ECAC losses have to be limited as far as Pairwise considerations. Need a sweep....
