    Big sheet vs small sheet: I am not sure makes much difference to this team…and while I love those long graceful passes on the big ice and the wide open game—it just didn’t seem to faze this team when they had to deal with joints like UMass Boston and the other smaller venues. And as someone mentioned earlier... its not really an issue given the barns we are likely to play in going forward.

    Do I want to see Skidmore Again? I still think how tough even USM played us only a month ago…just as they have befuddled other teams throughout this season. They have spoiler potential for any team they face as they have nothing to lose. I watched both NEC games and honestly didn’t see the stronger team that their current record and stats represents. Obviously they are better than I thought. So I am scared of them on any given night. Babson would be a tough game especially if it were for all the marbles. And yup, even Skidmore with dreams of another miracle on ice—have the sincere belief they can take us down. And they played that way in the second game where the lead changed hands four times and we needed seven rockets to win. There is only one path, e.g. focusing on the next opponent...one at a time...all the way.

    The Kriezberg Effect: All that said---consider the other guys perspective as I love the idea of playing at home. Several years ago a former UMass Boston player told me that playing at Kriezberg Arena is like playing in Yankee Stadium. NU is an intimidating joint with its huge sheet, always with a capacity crowd of partisan fans, all those Championship banners...and this year--- very good hockey team with a 21-1-3 record...with a bunch of very eager seniors who want to leave behind their OWN banner in the rafters. I would think that would be very chilling to any opponent regardless of who they are. Polls, stats, records, etc. are great indicators of how a team MAY perform. So it both a strong winning tradition and great heart. This NU team seems to have it all in spades...now they just have pull the trigger and to do it.

    So All Things Considered? Well actually, I'd rather be in our shoes (er...skates) than theirs including Skidmore's. Go get 'em Cadets!

    First NCAA Rankings are out at: http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/icehock...gional-ranking

    We could hardly have done better thanks to both Williams and Babson making the list of "ranked teams". Maybe the Cards will pull an upset in the SUNYAC, and we will have faced 4 "ranked teams"?
    The "Miracle" was winning the Gold Medal Game against the Finns. I'm biased, I was there.

    Interesting goalie selection there. Reichenbach has the better GAA and SV% of the two, but has all of the negative results on his record. Is that the reason for the choice?

    including when he replaced Ostepchuk against Endicott while behind 3-1.

    Reichenbach also came in in relief late in the game against Plattsburgh and in the second Skidmore game.

    That is, entirely possible, and indeed, I did forget about that aspect of selections. What makes that aspect odder is the fact that all-conference selections are used as a basis for all-American selection. This means (I don't think it applies here) that a very close selection based on conference statistics only could eliminate a player from AA consideration, even if his level of play overall was superior. That is an interesting way to run a Railroad.

    Nik Sunberg was left off 1st team years ago because someone had better SUNYAC stats, but Nik killed him (and just about everyone) in National stats and was left off. You're absolutely right. I don't agree with how they select a National team for this reason, but like everything, it is what it is.

    Just noticed this morning, and sent them two reminders. The "other" website has neglected to list todays NEHC USM - NEC Quarterfinal in any of their scoreboards.

    We may not show their results until Sunday, but at least we list the game on the schedule.

    My understanding is that the schedule on that website is based on a system that requires input from the schools' SIDs, rather than the website's staff. If your games are not listed, you might want to talk to yours.
