    I mean, RPI undoubtedly performs differently over the next 30 minutes if they're not immediately trailing. We certainly can't assume that RPI would lead 4-0 just by erasing the first goal.

    We did this about 3 or 4 times in the 07-08 season, so unfortunately some of us have become a bit used to it. Not to mention, after recalling doing it to Brown twice in 15-16, first thought was, "Is turnabout fair play?"

    The key is going to be situational recovery. Do we learn from it? Or do we make the same mistake again? We know the choice a number of years ago, what do we choose this time?

    I don't think the first goal by Brown really had an impact on the game. These things happen and RPI had 59 minutes to recover and reverse that goal. And they did. I agree time out would have helped when Brown was on the comeback trail and was building a full head of steam in the last half of the third. But more importantly, taking an offensive zone penalty at a critical time in the game was a HUGE mistake. I could understand taking a holding call or interference in the defensive zone because you are tired and the other team is swarming. But to skate down the ice behind their net and just pull the legs out from the defender. There was no attempt to play the body there. It looked almost like he thought about doing it and said, "What the hell." That, to me, was the sign RPI was going to lose. That would have been a good time for the TO. Seeing your team give up goals and then become very undisciplined was a sign that the reset button needed to be pushed. All that said....it might turn out to be the best thing that happens to this team. IF they learn from it? And if they go into the game Wednesday with the attitude: "We just came back from Ireland and we had two games just a few days ago. We're tired. And....", well then you will have your answer. The ghost of coaches past rattling the chains in the locker room. I know, I know all the Bah Humbug gloom and doom. But I very much hope it doesn't happen that way.

    I stand corrected....Jacob Appert. Woooooo. Was there a door knocker on Dave Smith's office door when he first moved in? Although I looked up Appert's USTDP Under 18 team and they seem to be doing pretty well. But then again when you get the players who are the cream of the crop, the winning is much easier.

    We have a new goalie recruit who is a '97, so he must be for next season. My guess is Perry is leaving.


    Edit: On second thought since he is from the GOJHL, McBain may be more likely,.

    Perry wouldn't be able to transfer; he's already done that once. And given Marshall's been doing halfway OK (maybe with a little more training he'll be very solid), would have to be either St. Denis or McBain.

    I meant St. Denis, not McBain. Sorry.

    I have the gut feeling that Coach Smith went to see Savory's early morning game today and got a commitment after it was over. (Both Jewell and Graham follow Savory on Twitter.)

    Edit; The "early morning game" has disappeared from the website.

    Pardon me for forgetting, I'm not as old as you are.

    Also, I have a great line for when Savory makes a save......

    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.

    Actually he was a year before I showed up at RPI.

    So, it was your fault that we gave up the lead.

    I think he was referring to turning pro, not transferring.

    That game wasn't lost at 1-0. Games you lead by 3 goals need to be Ws. Always. Period. Why Smith didn't call a TO at 4-2 or 4-3 to administer team-wide smelling salts is a mystery.

    I think so too.

    However, St. Denis is the more likely one.

    Clarification question on the 5 year plan: How is St. Denis considered a freshman this year for eligibility, and not a sophomore? Wasn't he at RPI last year, even though it was only a partial year? Did he redshirt? Does a partial year count towards a full year?

    You have 5 years to play 4. So last year is a half year of hockey. He has 3 full seasons and a half of a season that he could still play. Now as far as the number of goaltenders on a roster. Smith during his tenure at Canisius had as many as 5 goaltenders on his roster. Last season he had 4 and Canisius has 4 goaltenders this season.
