    If this was played on a neutral site, the odds would be flat our even. Because of home ice advantage and last change, CCT has to be favored but not by all that much. These teams match fairly well and much as i hate to say it, will probably decide at least one if not all the games on special teams. If RPI can play an organized game without taking unnecessary penalty minutes, they can be a very tough team for Clarkson. If not, then this one will end in 2 games with RPI not scoring very much. If these games are 2-1 type games, it should be an exciting close weekend. If RPI can gain some momentum from this last weekend, anything can happen.

    Apparently this year's ECAC First Round and Quarterfinals are being streamed through Boxcast.

    ECAC Hockey first-round and quarterfinal tournament games will be available for viewing by a global audience and be aired through www.ecachockey.com via BoxCast for a fee of $9.95 per game....details to follow.
    From here:

    At least we (probably) get WCKN doing the production.

    Not a shocker the EZ$$ would push for PPV.

    Hmm, 6 hour drive each way, hotel, gas, tolls, tickets or $10 a game to watch a ****ty stream. What a dilemma.

    Winner of this series combined with one series upset stays in the North Country for the following weekend.

    Worst possible option. I much prefer the one or three upset choices. RPI needs to turn that six hour drive into a 5 or 15 minute drive.

    Maybe all four upsets will happen, and I'd get the easy drive.

    I mean, the drive to Hamilton is about 30% shorter than the drive to Canton, so it's certainly an improvement. It's just 5000% longer than the drive to Ingalls.

    Have you run Monte Carlo simulations to predict the likelihood of each outcome?

    The drive to Hamilton does not require an overnight stay.

    Technically, neither does Canton, if I go to one game only.

    And if CCT wins, I guess lugnut and I are to blame.

    Is that even a question?

    Looks like the average distance I'll have to drive next weekend is about 73 miles. If we assume that RPI will advance, that value changes to 165.6 miles.

    Is that a weighted average, or assuming all possible outcomes are equal?

    I'd rather just focus on tomorrow's game.

    Sounds a bit better than my average of 2872 (unweighted)!

    I'll consider it if we land Yale or Quinnipiac. Not going to bother with St. Lawrence or Colgate -- too far from major airports. Might be able to convert a trip to CT into a work trip too .

    SLU is not really that much further from the Montr้al airport (or perhaps Ottawa)... just fly out of Vancouver.
