    Penn State sweeps Robert Morris for the second time this season by a score of 4-2! Penn State is now in first place in the CHA by five points, with six games to play. This was a signature weekend sweep, and if Penn State doesn't move up in the polls after this one then the poll voters are blind. Josie Bothun was incredible all weekend, but so was Raygen Kirk for Robert Morris. This whole weekend was played at 100MPH, and this sweep really defines this 2020-21 Penn State team.

    After two it's Penn State up 3-2 on Robert Morris, on goals from Amy Dobson, Julie Gough, and Olivia Wallin. Penn State took two penalties and Robert Morris took one, but neither team scored on the powerplay. Penn State leads the shots on goal 22-19. This game is non-stop go.

    At the end of the first period it's 1-0 Robert Morris. Penn State leads the shots on goal 10-8, and there were no penalties that period. So far, it's another very fast game, and Robert Morris's Raygen Kirk has made some huge saves to keep Penn State off the scoreboard. Gotta believe she can't keep that up for two more periods, and Penn State is on the gas hard.

    Nice team win to position themselves to control their own destiny. Did not play well for the entirety of the game, but, kept it together and improved play as the game progressed. Great job reducing penalties taken while there is quite a bit of work to be done on the power play. Nice effort overall. RMU will toss everything at them today and they have to it the ice ready to go.

    Keep on posting the links. Faceoffs and penalties were better this game.

    This win is huge for Penn State because I don't think anyone else in the CHA is going to take points away from Robert Morris the rest of this season, except maybe Mercyhurst. Those two have gone 1-1-1 so far, with one more game to play against each other. Penn State has to take tomorrow's points from Robert Morris and set things up for themselves.

    Penn State takes the 2-1 win against Robert Morris to go to 10-1-2 on the season, and go three points ahead of Robert Morris for first place in the CHA. Both goalies had outstanding games. The shots on goal were 30-28 for Penn State, and there were only three penalties the whole game. Penn State has now beaten Robert Morris three times in a row this season, but this was a very even game. Tomorrow should be more of the same - game time is 2:00 (Eastern).

    After two periods it's tied up 1-1, on a Penn State goal from Olivia Wallin. Both teams took a penalty, but only Robert Morris had anything resembling a powerplay. Penn State's powerplay was embarrassing, just non-existent. Robert Morris owned the first half of the period, but Penn State took it back for the second half. Robert Morris's goalie made some huge saves in that period, and so did Josie Bothun. This one is tight, but Penn State is waking up. Shots on goal are 24-22 for Penn State.

    Penn State and Robert Morris are scoreless after the first period. Penn State took the only penalty. Penn State leads the shots on goal 13-8. Robert Morris came to play, and started the game in control, but Penn State slowly started finding their groove. Both teams have had good chances, but both goalies have been on point so far.

    It's still four weeks out until the CHA tournament, but this weekend against Robert Morris is huge for Penn State. They are currently one point ahead of Robert Morris for the CHA lead, and this is the final series between the #1 and #2 teams, and the final chance to take points from them. Going by the schedules that each CHA team has posted, the regular season isn't going to end with all teams having played an equal number of conference games, so I don't know how that will affect official final standings (I guess every stat about this season will end with an asterisk and a "yeah, but..."). After this weekend, Penn State plays four in a row against RIT, and then finishes the season in a two-game series at Mercyhurst.

    Hats off to the CHA for getting each team as close as they are to the usual 20-game conference schedule. Unless the CHA manages to squeeze some odd mid-week games in here or there, this is how each team will finish for conference game totals: Penn State and Robert Morris - 20, RIT - 19, Lindenwood - 18, Mercyhurst - 17, and Syracuse - 16. That's pretty good in a season that almost didn't even happen, and was still dealing with Covid throughout.

    As usual, since it's not the final 10 seconds of the regular season in the CHA, the standings aren't even close to being settled. Penn State, Mercyhurst, Syracuse, and Lindenwood all have 8 CHA games left to play, Robert Morris has 7, and RIT has 9. That's how the schedules look right now, but there could be a short notice mid-week game snuck in there for somebody, too.

    Tonight's game vs Robert Morris is at 6:00 (Eastern).
