  • Re: Norwich 2016-17 Season Thread: ISO first NEHC title

    Hope, we must have hope with out it where would we be? I say that the Cadets have had many moments of greatness this year. Lets hope that we are just starting to peak. The season comes and goes so quickly. We need to see as much more hockey as possible. The frozen four could just serve as two more games to see the cadets play and the rink could use another championship banner to hang for all to see when they visit.

      MacBurnie? .944 Save%, 2.02 GAA in the 4 games he's played for the Beacons. 3 more weeks of play until we might see him. We will know better by then.

            I looked up the stat and was surprised to see NU's penalty kill at 81%. It just seems like the team gives up a lot of power play goals. Perhaps that's simply a result of taking a lot of penalties.

                Hockey team wins and the band looked **** good marching in the Inaugural Parade. Friday was a good day for Norwich.

                  Eight points up with five to play. Can clinch the regular season crown next weekend.

                  *Nine points up on Babson who has a game in hand. So I think Saturday is the earliest date possible, if all frontrunners win on Friday.

                    castleton has not defeated Norwich in anything since an April 19th baseball victory over the Cadets. I am looking forward to seeing that streak continue when castleton comes to town Friday night!

                      As much as I love the year of dominance, that's also why the rivalry hasn't risen in prominence.

                        This contest scares the **** out of me. Castleton is in ascendancy and this will be a tough contest.

                          Anything can happen on any given night, for sure.

                          That said, while castleton has improved from a win/loss standpoint since the new year, they haven't beaten any quality teams. While "common opponent" comparisons are often flawed, I buy them when you have a large enough sample size. Taking castleton's results and a common opponent breakdown into consideration, adding in the fact that the game is at Kreitzberg...I expect a Norwich win.

                            That would be correct as I see their respective schedules.

                              Okay, here's how it works. The team with the greatest number of potential points in the league is Babson. They stand at 15 points, and have 6 games left. If they win all 6 games, they would have 27 points. Norwich has 24 points. If Norwich reaches 28 points, then they have clinched. NEC can only reach 26 points (they have 16 points and 5 games left). Since NU has swept NEC, two points for the Cadets or a loss by NEC will eliminate NEC.

                              In other words 4 points gained by Norwich will clinch the regular season. Any combination of points gained by Norwich and points not gained by Babson totaling 4 eliminates Babson. Any combination of points gained by Norwich and points lost by NEC totalling 2 will eliminate NEC. If Norwich were to win on Friday and hell were to freeze over on Friday (Babson losing to DW), Norwich would clinch on Friday.

                                So you're saying there's a chance...

                                Had this next weekend series marked for a long time as I'm sure the guys have. I like how they don't seem to be looking past anyone and don't think that will change this weekend. Castleton game late in the season always seems to be a big matchup and you have to know the Cadets are waiting for a chance at Skidmore again. Avenge that collapse over in New York and the very questionable hit that put Will out for the first half.

                                Still want to see them clean up some of the play...mainly less stupid penalties. Defense seems to be better...luckily our goalies were good enough to stop the two point blank turnovers this weekend.
