    Anyway, enough with that issue, what do people think of the upcoming series?
    If you slow it down and look more closely, Point ends up with an RPI #11 stick coming down on his upper back/neck area during the netfront scrum, #11 is then knocked down by the Colgate defenseman on top of Point as well. He then proceeds to not bother picking up his stick and taking out the wrong guy in revenge. Dumb penalty on his part which was called correctly IMO. Go to the settings tab on the lower right of the video and chose "speed", you can slow it down to .25 speed.

    Maybe an innocent penalty, but you don't know that it will end up that way when you intend to do it. RPI player could have gone head-first into the boards, Point gets a game DQ for the first playoff game...there's no room for that crap when it affects an unassuming player or our entire team.

    Would like to give kudos to the RPI tv feed. It is consistently one of the best in the league (Qpac is good too, IMO, with great commentators) if not the country. One announcer made a poignant comment that I have believed all year, "Too bad Point is such a good goaltender on a team that only gets him a 13-14-6 record." It was a very keen observation as I have often wondered if - and why - Point will stay.

    You do have a Point.

    I didn't say dirtiest ever.

No way in the world was “the dirtiest play from a goalie in a long time” warranting a suspension. It was a minor for goodness sakes. And not even a roughing minor!
    Should have been an unsportsmanlike misconduct. And then he got away with a clear trip, which further justifies. Of course, the refs weren't calling anything on you all night, so of course he'd think that he could get away with it.

    No, the keg kicked. And both the tackle and trip were right in front of me. Not the first time we've been screwed over playing you on Senior night. I believe Fridgen's kick mark is still visible on the RPI bench.

    Note to self: sshablak thinks you shouldn't skate close to the net when the puck is behind the net. Stick was on the ice, unbroken, no desire to even pick it up. That's clear unsportsmanlike conduct. You are an idiot.

    It's a little after 2:11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lggNUIVAPC8 including a couple of replays from different angles. Watching it again, I am even more irritated than before. I am not saying that I haven't seen RPI goalies doing similar things (e.g., Don Cutts). As Flaggie said, he also had ample opportunity to pick up his stick while a teammate had possession.

    Anyway, that game is over.

    Dang! Now we’ve gone from talking about Colton Point to talking about his brother, “Moot” Point.

    BTW I asked my brother who has no connection to RPI except through me about the penalty. He has been to two or three RPI games while I was a student and used to be a Ranger season ticket holder. He thought that the penalty was correct. Of course, he was probably going by NHL rules.

    I'm assuming RPI traveled to Hamilton tonight. Heavy snow and winds forecast for tomorrow. Hopefully the officiating crew can get there so they can drop the puck.

    I believe RPI has arrived at the University Inn. I saw the motorcoach out front and a guy who was affiliated with the RPI program (saw him at Houston Field House last Saturday) in the lobby. Even though Colgate classes are cancelled for tomorrow, we should be alright for night one.

    I believe you are correct they'll get the game in - provided the officiating crew arrived last night as well.

    Madison County (where Colgate is) is currently under a travel ban, according to syracuse.com . This might get delayed unless that gets lifted... http://www.syracuse.com/weather/inde..._warnings.html

    Before anyone flips their ****: the RPI pep band has decided to cancel the road trip to Colgate given the inclement weather in Hamilton (and also Wade Tours apparently told them they weren't willing to make the drive).

    Ok, ok, so he went by the NHL rules! Let's enjoy this blast from the past. (And see a simulation of the penalty in question at :38. As you can see, all's well that ends well. Sorry you have to wade through the commercial. )

    Game One is in the books, even if it was played during an extended travel ban in Madison County. Colton Point played another outstanding game for Colgate. It seemed like a lot of penalties, but at least the goalie from North Bay didn’t get called for one (the lesson in anger management on here must have reached him). Roads should be better for driving to Game Two on Saturday.

    Game 3 for all the marbles tomorrow night! Donnie V's collar is suddenly feeling awful tight again. Love it.

    I posted this on the Colgate thread but I'll post it here as well:

    I'm considering driving out for tomorrow night's game but I don't see a link on the Colgate ticket site for the game (and the tickets link on the schedule page just leads to a "No events available" page). I assume there is some mechanism for advance purchases. Can anyone provide a link? Thanks.
