    Point was good. The only big hiccup I saw was the rebound he pushed out into the slot during the first or second goal (I forget which). It was an easy goal for the Knight who was positioned right there. Otherwise he really couldn't do much on most other goals. Not his fault.

    Young team, can't expect them to win every game. As others have pointed out hopefully this was a learning experience. Coming from 3-4 goals down may have taught them something about how difficult it is, and how you can't let down even when tied 1-1 (not that they let down). Hope for a different outcome tonite but SLU has to be hungry. Hope it's not a trap game for us. Let's go out with a win in our last 2017 game at '65.

    We'll carry a 4-1-1 league record into the 2018 calendar year. We also earned overall win #7 tonight, when last season we didn't hit that mark until February. Things are certainly trending upwards for us!

    Yep, we'll take it. Looks like Clarkson is the real deal this year, so no shame coming away with two points this weekend. Let's go 'gate!

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    If we were given the option of a 7-3-4 record after 14 games we all would have signed up for it in a heart beat. We only had 8 wins all regular season. To be honest it is great that no matter what happens the next time we see the team they will be no worse than .500. The past two years Iíve been doing the math to see when we will be at .500.

    It really looks like there are two stratospheres in the league and we are on the cusp of the top one. Hopefully when we come back we will show we are in the top of the league

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    Clarkson's 4-0 win at Lynah tonight was HUGE.
    Our win at home was good, but we should have had an easier time with SLU (is this their worst season start in school history?).
    Much of the game, we were more lucky than good. Twice they pinged it off the pipes surrounding Point, who continues to give up some scary rebounds.
    Having said that, I am the first to admit that a win is a win. We just need to keep learning and keep improving.

    The Watertown Daily Times writer for SLU stated that it was the worst start after the Cornell loss Friday.

    Will take the home split against a North Country duo which is hard for any team to sweep. Hopefully our record against the Knights at Cheel will have pucks bouncing our way in 2018. For a depleted team, SLU was in it the entire game. Despite their record, it was nice to see their fans make the trip, as they usually do. Feels like Colgate could go either way on any given night. Come playoff time, my guess is any team would prefer not to play the Raiders with Point in goal. Great start to the season after such abysmal season predictions. Am not getting overconfident by any means; wins over ranked teams (Harvard, Qpac) that haven't happened in decades were great, but feel a bit hollow now as those teams sink. The loss to Clarkson killed us in the PWR. We managed to squeak 2 goals by Kielly, compared to Cornell's goose egg vs. the Knights at Lynah.

    From the Clarkson athletics page:
    Clarkson, which defeated 19th-ranked Colgate 5-2 in Hamilton on Friday, earns it first regular-season series sweep of the Central NY rivals since late in the 1996-97 campaign. The Knights improve to 6-0-0 in league play for their best start in the conference since 1991-92.

    Nice win by you guys last night. I watched and have to say a couple of things.
    -Your TV feed and announcer are top notch. Thanks for the free feed. Your announcer (sorry I don't know his name) is among the more knowledgeable, fair, interesting and he knows so much about us that it is refreshing to listen to and hear. The video quality is excellent although I couldn't get it to load on my expensive curved screen HD TV and had to settle for watching it on my laptop. (It just wouldn't load on my TV. It'd get all the way to the link....show the SLU vs. Colgate logo, and then say..... Event not Live and flip to another screen.

    -We are having an architectural study done on Appleton and one of the goals is to research and look into what we need to do to improve our feed for fans watching from away. Yours is an excellent one to model after.

    -As to the game........we played our best game in a while and still came up short. We are having an abysmal season (most of which I blame on our coach.) The injury bug has hit us big time. Last year we had wrists and concussions. This year its worse. It's knee's and concussions. Marnell who is arguably one of our top scorers suffered what I think is his 5th and I've not heard anything official but he could be done. The knee's are more troubling. We've lost a couple of good players for what I think is the season. Plus Laidley who is one of our more talented players, suffered a serious knee injury last year and he STILL isn't back.

    _As to the PWR.......one would hope that Q Pac and Harvard will improve and help you out. Victories over them at this point while impressive......are not what we'd thought they'd be. Both Harvard and Q Pac have lost a bunch of games and their rankings are highly inflated. They are both going to drop like stones in polls.

    No rest for this upcoming weekend, Western Mich. is tied with Clarkson at #3 in the PWR and first place in the NCHC.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    # 2 ( 2 PWR, 13-1 ) 'gate WIH sweeps Yale & Brown, heads to Windjammer Classic @ Vermont over TG wkend

    "Feels like a #2 ranking tomorrow..." was prophetic by go'gate, reflecting a potential swapping of places with #2 Boston College. BC, now 10-1-2, gave up a tie to Conn. over the weekend. I thought the move to the #2 spot would likely follow a potential sweep of Cornell Dec. 1 & 2.

    I hope the Cornell series doesn't distract 'gate from the serious business in front of it at the Windjammer Classic against Minnesota Duluth on Friday and the winner of the Vermont/RIT game on Saturday. I still have a slight concern about 'gate's sluggishness in its 2nd games on weekends. Other than that, no complaints......isn't this a blast ?

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    Colgate athletics in general...what a euphoric feeling for a school of Colgate's size to excel in so many ways. Men's soccer advancing to the Sweet 16; WIH making historic strides, MIH silencing the critics with a very respectable performance so far, MBB off to their best start in years (sorry to laugh, we're a mere 2-1!)...and even thrilled and hopeful for Field Hockey. I know a committed recruit for next year from Westchester who is thrilled with Coach Cornell and particularly with Colgate. FB wins 9th PL Championship, Coach Hunt a finalist for COTY (nice, but unlikely); QB Breneman a finalist for ROTY...we're winning more than we're losing, morale is high, and even the stunning Class of 1965 Arena earns LEED Gold Certification! We also have a President and VP who value athletics. It is a remarkable season and students/fans need to get out and support the players, coaches, and the University. Congrats to all at Colgate who make this possible. There is much maroon pride to go around.

    I like the fact that we have a tough weekend ahead. It allows us to have a big win before UCONN and Army, and although nothing is guaranteed there, they are easier games. We get another chance at a quality win and this one would be on the road, non conference game.

    I attended Colgate's national championship hockey game against Wisconsin in Detroit's Joe Louis Arena in 1990. It was special! As a '69 alum, I've followed Colgate's evolution in athletics pretty closely over the years and have developed a nose for watershed events. That's why the blogging I started two seasons ago about the mult-year turnaround in WIH grabbed me as being so significant. By coincidence, this was happening at the same time as the '65 Arena was being unveiled.
    *******https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/colg...3.html********

    I also agree with everything you're saying in your post about this special environment for Colgate athletics. That said, I think the combination of the turnaround/growing national awareness of 'gate WIH and the draw of the new '65 Arena is especially significant. The combo potentially distinguishes this moment from other significant Colgate athletic splashes on the national scene. It's because this may not be a one-off situation, as Colgate splashes usually become. There is a potential for the buzz to grow beyond the initial national splash. This combo has already transformed WIH's next 2 recruiting classes to echelons, never thought accessible by Colgate. The tangible commitment to excellence symbolized by the '65 Arena, the evolution into outstanding team performance and the Colgate University draw can do the same for MIH. This is a special moment.

    Split on the w/e but moved up to #18 in the USCHO rankings. Dropped to #21 in the PWR.

    Off topic: Kudos to mens soccer beating UMASS, 2-0 and Michigan, 2-1 in their first two games of the NCAA playoffs. Welcome to the Sweet 16. Next up: Louisville on Sunday. History is being made.

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    I attended tonight's Cornell 5-4 win over Niagara (after being behind to the Purple Eagles 3-1 at Lynah, no less) and, on the drive home, it dawned on me that officials aren't calling the number of penalties that they did last year. I can't remember what they called the penalties in general, by they broke up the flow of the game and it was happening in all leagues (certainly the NCHC, which I saw on a regular basis). I think all the leagues' officials decided to enforce certain penalties last year, and it caused a controversy in college hockey. My question is... did the leagues' officials consciously decide to go back to the way things were, pre-2016-17? Has anyone heard how and why that turned around? Mind you, I'm glad it did.

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    Great point Iowa, I have been watching our PIM's going down as the year progresses, thought maybe the players were finally getting it. I was not aware of a "trend" but I'm with you, more flow is great for the game.

    Somehow overnight we jumped up three spots in the PWR and are tied at #18 with Ohio State. Clarkson jumped to tied for #1, and Cornell tied for #4 with Western Michigan. Brown beating Holy Cross maybe flipped some comparisons with the AHA, or Conn vs Vt flipped some ? Not sure.

    We are third in goals against, behind Cornell and Clarkson nationally, our goals for is way down in the lower half. We're scoring by committee has worked so far, Mcmann has six goals and six assists for twelve points and about six posts. He's really coming into his own and I'm still predicting a breakout year for him. We need to score more, the PP has gone two for three in two games recently from a dismal start when it was at 6% (around 15% now). Been a great start, tough tough weekend against #4PWR Western Michigan this weekend, hoping for a split.
    Looks like pay per view for the weekend games.
    Everyone stay on board and Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving !
