    I should add that we're absolutely delighted to have WHTK pick up the games and hope it means more people get exposed to the Tigers and new fans make it to some games. It also means that you can listen on the iHeartRadio app (available here: https://news.iheart.com/apps/). Just search for Fox Sports 1280.

    Hopefully, any potential fans won't be swayed by the debacle last weekend.
    I do give kudos to getting a fairly major local sports radio station to carry the games though.

    Having Fox Sports 1280 simulcast the games is great for RIT hockey. Also nice for Scott and Ed who have work very hard to make a very professional broadcast (well most of time, especially when they don't have odd balls like me on ). Lets not forget Chris and Randy. Been a long time coming guy, great that more people can hear you over the radio!

    As for this weekend it should be interesting, I think RIT will find a way to get a split, but honestly do not know how. Anyone throw a dart at the board yet to guess who will be in Net? I still am betting on Drackett, Go on Wayne and prove me wrong!!!

    7 shots on goal, 2 goals allowed..I wish he had proved you wrong at this point. Hoping for better over the next two periods

    Flat. 2-0. Army looks bigger and faster. Both goals were up and over the left shoulder.

    Must have been one hell of a talk between periods.

    Whatever coach said between the first and the second worked. RIT did all the little things in the second that they did not do in the first. They were first to the puck and had a great forecheck. Couple that with Army letting their foot off the gas combined with RIT shots that found the net instead of going wide or clanging off the post like last week and you had a 4-2 RIT lead after two. The third was not as sharp for RIT as Army picked up the intensity but Valenzuelas goal was not only the game winner but an important Ďteamí moment that hopefully RIT can build on. They didnít give up, they didnít throw in the towel to a big strong Army team that was definitely finishing their checks in the third.

    Hot take after 1 league game; feels like this team is very similar to last year. Goaltending and defense are average at best meaning we'll need to score 4+ most nights to win.

    Outsider view as the lastime I saw RIT was playing against them in 1987 for Oswego...1st period bus legs...2nd period WOW different team,#18 can snipppp great 2 goals,3rd periods seemed even...goaltending left many rebounds around the crease...dmen puck watched on a few goals...I was there to watch my buddies son #5 dman Dan Willett and was not disappointed, after 5 seasons in the USHL and a record 266 games played he may be small but he has great awareness on the ice .moves the puck very well on the breakout,and sees the play well in advance also never once paniced with the puck,he will be a keeper for sure,look forward to watching him develop even more...also looked right at home when he got his chance on the PP..never thought i'd say it but good luck RIT this yr

    I don't know who's calling the play-by-play in this video, but he's fantastic, especially on Abt's second goal: "Oh my god they killed Kenny! Abt with his second of the period!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q0Eqd1y_kw

    We have a goalie. Stood on his head. Stopped three breakaways, just a really great game.

    It certainly sounded like he stole one from the radio broadcast. Good to see/hear. Great bounceback weekend, especially considering the inauspicious start on Friday night

    Drackett won this game for RIT tonight. He saved some of the defensemen's bacon with his saves. The offense did just enough. It's really good to see Peacock take advantage of playing on the top line with his 3 goals. Giruckus is off to a great start as well.

    Amazing how a road sweep turns everyone's mood around! Glad Drackett has managed to shake off the last two starts and turn in another gem. His results have been all over the place through 4 games so I'm still not sure which Drackett is the real one.

    Either way, can't complain with 4 points to start the real season.

    So true! Spoke to an RIT player parent while leaving Tate last night, like me he would have been okay with a split after Friday's win but was so very happy with the sweep. An Army friend grabbed me and jokingly said "hey I thought you said you guys were in a rebuilding year?" (which I did say to him on Friday night after that flat 1st period). I told him we started rebuilding in the locker room between the 1st and 2nd periods on Friday night. Lots of happy RIT fans leaving Tate last night. We still need to put forth this type of game at GPC so looking forward to next weekend.

    Well Army should finally drop out of "others receiving votes" now. =)

    I don't think RIT was completely rebuilding, as many of the top players from last year are still on the team. The biggest question going in, and still seems to be, goaltending. Hopefully, Drackett is going to continue to take the job over.
