    Raw total SOG may not mean as much as a way to measure the quality of SOG one takes every game.

    I like this teams work ethic.If they can stay reasonably healthy I think they will be a tough out down the stretch.

    Well, well a W. Great play by Marshall at the end of the game to seal it. Couple take aways: GREAT third period. Pretty lackluster 1st and 2nd. Yale could simply not keep up in the third. BUT... several grade A scoring chances in 1st two periods, but stopped cold by Yale's goalie. Gotta bury some of those. A few other chances from in close that missed the net. I see the team getting much better from the goalie out. Defense kept Yale to the outside and back checking was good. But. the turnovers were a big problem. Especially right outside their own blueline on the breakout. A top tier team would have made RPI pay for many of those. So, if I were advising... I think the breakout from the defensive zone is the next major work area. It's on to Brown. A team RPI has traditionally struggled against. Hopefully they will start the game like they finished with Yale.

    Nice effort by the boys last night. In Smith's poster he mentioned the team played their best defense in the offensive zone and how they are emphasizing checking in all three zones. Nice to see the work pay off. Wilson credited Burgess and Troy New York for creating traffic in front on his ppg.

    Re: RPI Hockey 2017 - 2018: A Wealth of Notions

    The game, from my perspective was the opposite of Friday. Friday: 2 weak periods followed by a strong third. Saturday: 2 strong followed by a weak third. I think after they went up 4-1, they played like all they had to do was finish out the period. After none of Brown's three goals did a sense of urgency return to RPI. And not talked about was the offensive zone penalty by Liljegren. An absolutely huge mistake at the end of the game. I also thought, after some criticism here on his play, Tironese had an outstanding weekend. He skated hard, fast, and was always attacking the puck setting a very strong example for the younger players. I understand they just came back from Ireland. But they had time to adjust from that. And I am sure efforts were made to help the team adjust. But great teams don't look for excuses. They weren't a team tough to play against in the third. And the one thought that entered my mind in the second and start of the third was: Brown has traditionally been a thorn in RPI's side. Always finding RPI easy to play against. And I wondered if the Brown team and coaches were thinking "Wow this is a different team than we have played in the past". Until it wasn't. The question is: how much a of a bad taste does this leave in their mouths? One step forward......

    Don’t “burn the tape”, instead put the last 12min. (of Reg.) on a loop & have them watch it over & over & over. NOT to see themselves implode but to see what drive & determination looks like & I’m talking about the kids from Brown. Bravo to them.

    This game was lost by the coach more than the players. Over playing a group of players on both special teams units lead to this loss. This was a tired team in the 3rd period and it could have been avoided. The coach had a timeout that he never used and should have been used after the 3rd goal.

    He pretty much admitted to that in the post-game interview.

    Yeah, I kept thinking as Brown was rolling, “when is he going to call TO”. I really do expect this Team to rebound Tuesday.

    I don't remember feeling worse than I did last night after any other RPI game I've watched (potentially excepting the Game 3 loss to Dartmouth in 2014). Terrible.

    I don't know what RPI was thinking about at the beginning of Saturday night's game, but 20 seconds after the opening faceoff, they were down 1-0. One could surmise that if they'd kept the puck out of their net for the first minute, the Engineers might have survived Brown's three-goal rally and won in regulation.

    I don't know what RPI will be thinking about at the beginning of Wednesday night's game, either, but they'd better not come out for the opening faceoff still moping about what happened on Saturday. If they do, I expect UNH will be only too happy to take advantage, just as Brown did.
