    I just called the box office. There are still a few hundred tickets left. You can only buy at the GPC or the BCA. I sure hope there is a large walk-up fan base tonight.

    Considering the hype around this year's team - this is a disappointment. My only thought is that UConn is too familiar an opponent to get a casual fan,

    I think it's just a lack of advertising.

    It seems about the same this year as in the past. There may be something to it just not being novel any more.

    Could be... or could be the lack of advertising as has been said. However, the small number of seats left (possibly viewed as not very desirable locations) is still essentially a sell-out. I mean, about 10.400 seats sold out of 10,566 is a LOT of seats!! A win this year could influence an early sell-out next year though.

    From my vantage point it was one hell of a game. Last year we were up 2-0 before giving up two and settling for a tie. This year I don't think a single person clapped when UConn scored. When RIT got the equalizer the rafters seemed to be shaking. Excellent showing by the boys. I thought the place was pretty packed and they did a nice job with the shirts. I got up here early enough to have a nice meal at Sticky Lips before heading over to BCA. Am I disappointed we didn't win, sure, but by no means was this a bust. The team did great especially not losing their cool after going down1-0 in the third. This is a good team.

    Yup, the place really exploded when we finally scored. I agree... this is a good, solid team. I like the fact we dominated play for most of the game. WITR guys said they thought we dominated 55 of the 60 minutes. I have to admit, though, that it had the feel of one of those games in which we were clearly the better team but could have lost by the Huskies scoring a fluke goal in OT.

    Rit dominated almost every facet of that game, but I genuinely thought that after uconn finally scored that RIT was done. Seeemes like we had approximately zero puck luck. Regardless the atmosphere was electric.

    Yes the crowd definitely had that feel that here we go again we are going to lose another one at BCA after playing well and having no puck luck. That's why the equalizer and the remaining minutes of the third period and the OT was great hockey to watch. Everybody around me was hanging on every shot whether it be from UCONN or RIT. Having a power play heading into OT really amped up the place. I couldn't help but wonder what the UCONN players were thinking. How could you not want to play in an atmosphere like that?

    I thought both teams came out a bit flat. The first period and most of the second were pretty boring, mistake-filled affairs. (I was really surprised at the very beginning of the game when it looked like UConn wasn't going to use a forecheck... like, at all.)

    I was also struck by how poor UConn is with the puck. They're big and solid physically but I didn't see very many flashes of skill in puck-handling or shooting. And they seemed slow compared to RIT.

    The third period was good hockey; it would have been nice to see both teams playing like that earlier.

    RIT went 0-for-7 on the PP; that's no good.

    Most likely we didn't score on the PP for the same reason we had a tough time putting it in the back of the goal during the whole game... their freshman goalie is really good. We didn't have any problem keeping the play in UConn's end though.

    Re: >>> RIT Tigers 2016-17: That was fun; let's go for three!

    Haven't been on here in a while but my 2 cents on all the recent topics:

    Firstly, I think this team is going to be fun to watch, It's refreshing to see them competitive early after years of slow starts, as long as they don't peak too early or face a lot of injuries this is going to be a good team. This is the first time in a the last few years that we have players in the stands that I feel could hop into the lineup at any time and the team wouldn't miss a beat. The freshmen look like with some seasoning, they could be a great class.

    In terms of Blue Cross and coming down to the wire with ticket sales, I think marketing for the event has been poor. Outside of the hockey social media and the local news this week i thought it was pretty quiet. Athletics doesn't market games anymore, my understanding is marketing and tickets are under the department that runs the rink as well as Ritter and the Field House, so that may have something to do with it as well. Yes, lack of homecoming wins at BCA certainly plays some role, but it's more of an event than a hockey game, people are going to show no matter what, but people need to know about it to be able to go.

    In regards to Wayne and leaders, it's hard to argue with him in relation to what happened last Saturday. The penalties that lead to the 5v3s were by a Freshman, a Junior , a Senior and a Junior Captain. Maybe he's gone to the well too many times with the seniors and captains line, but imo he was right last Saturday. Any coach would tell you that you win with your seniors and your leaders, you lose with them too. What goes on behind the scenes to instill discipline? thats not for us to know, but I don't pin that loss on Wayne.

    If what's gone on so far is any indicator, I think this is going to be an exciting year for Atlantic Hockey. Air Force is going to be solid and picked up a big win over BC, Holy Cross upset Providence, Bentley stole a tie from Northeastern; This isn't your Father's Atlantic Hockey

    I agree that UConn's goalie was good, but the goal that RIT did score was a result of excellent passing, something that has been lacking this season. More practice, stable lines, and time should result in better passing accuracy (and fewer passes to no one in particular). Once that happens, RIT might just be "scary good."

    Thanks for this. I watched it multiple times now, great highlights, enthusiastic announcers, crunching checks, and of course hearing Matt's name followed by SCORE!

    Have also been following McGowan and Mitchell in Germany, they're both lighting the lamp with regularity.
