    I too enjoy your blog and will be interested in future spots. I too agree with your frustrations with the issues with the game feeds this weekend. Clarkson RMU game one feed started late and game 2 the feed did not start until the beginning of the third period. I emailed the Director of Cheel Area during the 2nd game and he emailed me back that it was an ESPN issue (they had an encoder problem what ever that means). I will bet if it was a football game that was going on ESPN+ that the problem would have been fixed a lot quicker.

    Thanks PGB and vicb. I truly appreciate it.

    Hereís hoping the feeds and encoder issues get sorted out once and for all. I agree about FB getting fixed ASAP if the scenario ever arose, lol.

    Lakers get their first win of the season tonight, 4-2 at Syracuse. Senior goalie Sarah McDonnell got the start, making 23 saves on the night. Maddi Welch started in net for 'Cuse, both right handed catching goalies. McDonnell was solid, and excellent at times. She came up big on a 5 on 3 penalty kill in the second, as well as made a breakaway stop shortly after.

    Lakers took the lead in the 2nd on a Tanskanen goal that was scored from the goal line, close to the net. The 'Cuse answered a minute later with a pp bomb from the point, top shelf. Lakers took the lead again with ten seconds left in the second, on a nifty little play where Dobson stripped the 'Cuse D of the puck in the slot, dropped it to Nuutinen, who stickhandled once and dished to Knott for Knott's first goal of the season.

    I didn't watch the third, but I see the Lakers took a 3-1 lead on another Knott goal, with assists from freshman Liliane Perreault and sophomore Megan Korzack. The insurance goal was needed as 'Cuse answered, making it 3-2. A fourth Laker goal came from defender Rachel Marmen.

    The two periods I saw were somewhat even, with each team generating pressure at times. Rowswell of Syracuse generated a lot of chances for the Orange. Free stream was good quality and a nice job done by the pxp guys.

    Lakers earned a win over visiting RMU tonight, 4-2. Special teams were the difference, with the Lakers going 2 of 5 on the pp, and RMU going 0 for 6. Lakers also scored a short handed goal. RMU was up 2-0 in the first before giving up four goals.

    Play of the game for me was watching the Lakers kill a Tanskanen penalty in the 2nd. Lots of chances, chaos and blocked shots that culminated in I believe defender Thiessen absorbing a shot and trying to collapse on the puck and get a whistle. RMU took the lumber to her (as is expected in that situation), the puck came out, but the Lakers still managed to clear the puck out of the zone, and kill the penalty.

    Shortly after the kill, the Lakers had the puck in the RMU zone, Dobson fed Vasko the puck as she came down the slot, tie game, and the Lakers took momentum from there. Other Laker goals were scored by Pinto, Fieseler, and Hine. McDonnell got the start in net for Hurst.

    The teams meet again tomorrow afternoon.

    Lakers fell 5-1 to RMU yesterday. Shots were 23-21 in favor of RMU. Three RMU goals were the result of breakaways, two of which came from unforced errors; the other two RMU goals were PP goals. Lone Laker goal was scored by Vasko, on the PP.

    Itís early in the season so canít really say if this was characteristic of this Laker team; I chalk it up to a game where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Will be interesting to see how Hurst responds next week.

    Highlights are on the RMU site: https://rmucolonials.com/news/2018/1...cha-split.aspx

    Both the Lakers and Colonials are now 3-5 on the season. Next up, the Lakers host Penn State.
