    Penn State beats Robert Morris 3-2 in a very even game. Shots on goal were 30-30, and both teams had all kinds of chances. Robert Morris did get some help with a couple of early whistles in front of their net in the third, but Raygan Kirk was solid in net for Robert Morris, as was Josie Bothun for Penn State. Kiara Zanon had a shorthanded breakaway in the game but couldn't finish it, and Penn State had a 5-on-3 in the third and didn't score. Overall a great game from Penn State for having not played in almost a month. Back at it again tomorrow at 2:00.

    After two periods it's still tied 1-1 at Robert Morris. Penn State took two more penalties in that period, but stopped the Robert Morris powerplay on both. Shots on goal are even at 19-19. Josie Bothun has come up with big saves on some scrummy chances right at the net. Again, there's nothing glaring that stands out as needing adjustment. Penn State is full of hustle, getting their chances, and the penalty kill is working after giving up that first period goal. Good hockey all around, but who isn't starved for hockey, right?

    Quick FYI: the game announcers are saying tomorrow's game is at 2:00 Eastern, not 2:30.

    After one period it's tied 1-1 at Robert Morris. Both teams have one penalty, and both goals were powerplay goals. Penn State leads the shots on goal 9-8, so this one couldn't be a whole lot closer so far. No glaring miscues to adjust between periods - it's just good hockey from both teams so far.

    Gebhardt graduated, that player tormented PSU hockey for four years.

    I'm saying Wisconsin didn't look to be superior to the top 2 or 3 teams in any of the other conferences. There is increasing parity every year.

    Penn State is back at it tonight and tomorrow at Robert Morris, with live video being $9.99 per game (https://portal.stretchinternet.com/rmuwhockey/). Tonight's game is at 7:00 Eastern, and tomorrow is at 2:30 Eastern (note: Penn State's schedule says tomorrow is at 2:00...Robert Morris says 2:30).

    Like the four-game Syracuse series, this one will be a good test for Penn State, taking on one of the two perennial leaders in the CHA. Robert Morris just played on Monday, basically a scrimmage against Adrian, and Penn State last played on December 12, so we'll see if any of that matters to either team.

    What do you mean the "weekly grind"? I watched both Minnesota St vs Wisco games (yes I'm hockey deprived), and Minnesota St gave Wisco everything they could handle. There is no longer a big gap and parity exists amongst conferences.

    Nice to see PSU getting some national recognition. After watching some games in other conferences (HE/WCHA), I believe the CHA has made substantial gains and anxiously await the opportunity to see some cross conference competition at some point post pandemic.

    They then Travel to RIT the next weekend then RIT comes to Pegula.
    Going by the schedules posted by the other CHA teams, this is how Penn State's schedule looks:

    Jan. 8-9 vs Robert Morris - 7:00 PM Eastern and 2:00 PM Eastern - at Robert Morris
    Jan. 15-16 vs RIT - 6:00 PM Eastern and 3:00 PM Eastern - at RIT
    Jan. 22-23 vs RIT - 6:00 PM Eastern and 3:00 PM Eastern - at Penn State
    Jan. 29-30 vs Lindenwood - 7:00 PM Central and 3:30 PM Central - at Lindenwood
    Feb. 5-6 vs Robert Morris - 6:00 Eastern and 3:00 Eastern - at Penn State
    Feb. 12-13 vs Mercyhurst - 6:00 Eastern and 3:00 Eastern - at Penn State
    Feb. 26-27 vs Mercyhurst - 2:00 PM Eastern for both games - at Mercyhurst

    It's great to see Rachel Weiss, Mikayla Lantto, and Alyssa Machado will be playing. That's three more forwards to work with, and presumably gets Rene Gangarosa back to her place on defense. That still leaves the defense one player short of having three lines, so maybe Kampersal will be shuffling defenders so they get more rest than they've been getting.
