Still can't believe I'm going to see Jack Parker's last games at Boston University. One day I hope Brendan is as legendary.

Wouldn't that be great?

Our last legendary coach was Jim Fullerton, who coached Brown from 1955-1970. He coached 3 All-Americans and took us to the Final Four (hosted at Meehan), and was Div. 1 coach of the year in 1965.

I was lucky enough to watch Fully's last team my freshman year at Brown: the Bennett brothers, Cat McGinnis, Rich McLaughlin et al. The first home game I watched, we took Cornell (Ken Dryden in net) into overtime, an absolutely thrilling night. No wonder I became a lifelong Brown hockey fan.

I'd love for current or at least future Brown students to have a similar epiphany, courtesy of Brendan.

I was watching the win over BC at a restaurant before the PC-St. John's basketball game and the resounding sentiment amongst the basketball fans was "we have a hockey team?"

Our fans annoy me. They were loud once during Senior night and that was when Schaller tied up the game. It wasn't like UML blew us out either...

Ah well, good luck against RPI.

was 6 years old , but remember that game , barely........ But Dick Toomey was a great coach , had the likes of gilligan, mckintosh, bothwell , mccabe (in net) all were all americans , lived a block away .Bill gilligan Lived with us . great teams brown had back than (late 70s), student lines would start at 5.00 pm and people would even come in during the brown freshman games , back when freshman were not allowed to play until second year.those games started at 100... In fact during the gilligan, mckintosh , luckowich days the brown freshman were 22-0 ... and played the varsity in exhibition and lost by a goal, they were that good ... Mark holden also played net for the freshman.

Complete miscarriage of justice. I'm working on a post comparing the trio to Whittet, and the statistics are amazing in comparison in favor of Whittet. Positively horrible that he wasn't even NOMINATED.

Though from I've heard in interviewing and talking to people, he would've liked it but doesn't really care. There's only one trophy he wants (and that's not a cliche by any stretch).

This is based on ECAC results, Yale has five more wins in conference than Brown, I guess they had trouble nominating a Coach with a sub 500 conference record.

I am not sure why they even nominated anyone other than Pecknold, a sure runaway winner of the award.

Respect from hockey writers seems difficult to come by this year.

At the end of a long column about RPI resurgent, and an ECAC week wrap-up that noted Clarkson's lack of offense against Brown, we have (gasp!) this interesting news:

Weekly honors
As selected by the conference:

Player of the week — Kyle Flanagan, St. Lawrence...

Rookie of the week — Mark Naclerio, Brown: Naclerio had three points in two games against Clarkson as the Bears advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2010. The freshman was 15-for-28 on faceoffs Friday and is sixth in the ECAC in faceoff percentage.

Goalie of the week — Anthony Borelli, Brown: After not appearing in a game his junior season, Borelli has made up for lost time quickly this year. The senior goalie posted his third shutout of the year Friday against Clarkson, and stopped 65 of 68 shots overall in the sweep of the Golden Knights. Borelli’s .945 save percentage is tied for second in the country.

So, our guys grabbed two out of the three weekly individual honors, but the team is still waiting for a little credit for the Cinderella second half of its season. O well. The better our motivation to sweep RPI!

So, what.... Is everyone holding their collective breath until this weekend's games?

Any updates re: injured or sick players?

Who from this group is going in person?

Let's make some noise! Go BROWN!

WATCH/LISTEN TO BROWN-RPI HOCKEY ON THE INTERNET

Video Stream

RPI/TV will be video streaming all Brown men's hockey games from Houston Field House this weekend. However, due to an agreement between ECAC Hockey and America One Sports, the playoff games will be available live only on http://www.americaonesports.com/upcoming_events.asp?q=l&value=ncaa See the link under "Upcoming Events".

The price for receiving the video transmission has been set at $9.95 for each game.

Moments after the end of each live feed, the respective game will be available in its entirety on rpitv.org


Audio Stream

The brownbears.com website has not listed the ECAC Quarterfinals on its audio schedule. My guess is Mike Rubin is probably committed to do the Brown-Harvard lacrosse match at Stevenson Field on Saturday night.

However, the RPI audio netcast (on WRPI, 91.5 FM) of each of the games has been advertised on the RPI Hockey website and will be available on the internet. The audio transmissions will be available at no charge.

The URL for connection to each of the game audio netcasts is: http://www.rpiathletics.com/index.aspx?tab=hockey&path=hockey See the link under "Upcoming Events".

The game audio is better found at http://www.wrpi.org/listen and pick whichever stream is best suited for you (I usually pick 64). Air time is 10-15 minutes before puck drop, and the first intermission will typically include an interview with your coach.

The RPI audio is very good and the announcers know their stuff. With Mike unavailable, not a bad fall-back.

Good article on RPI and the upcoming games in today's Albany Times-Union.

http://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/Bailen-at-heart-of-Engineers-resurgence-4353271.php

Baillen is good and should be on the all ECAC team. I have seen him play several times this year and to beat RPI he will have to be shut-down.

I will be at the games in section 19 where the dozen or so Brown fans have sat the last 3 years during the regular season. When we beat RPI in the playoffs in Brendan's first year, there were 50, including the crew from BC to see Voplatti, Pietrus play.

Give 'em hell, Mike. If we get MacDonald as a ref, make sure you boo him out of the building for me.

Ironically, on Saturday I'll be at Meehan during the Brown game- to watch my high school alma mater, La Salle, hopefully knock off Brendan Whittet's high school (Mount St. Charles).

Also, I just want to point out that this is by FAR the longest season thread we've ever had. I have to imagine a lot of that is due to the Roy saga, but still- we're clearly making some waves in the college hockey community. There have been various posters with no allegiance to Brown who have commented on this thread throughout the season, and that means the team has come a long way from a few years ago.

Let's hope the team continues playing long enough to start a second 2012/13 season thread!

So I know the conversation has gone to this level in regards to Anthony Borelli, but I want to show you why this season is the best season out of a Brown goalie since 2000, even better than Yann Danis:

Borelli this year is has a 1.74 and .945. He's done this with the following people playing in front of him: Matt Wahl, Dennis Robertson, Brandon Pfeil, Joey De Concilys, Richie Crowley, Greg Tang, Jake Goldberg, and a cavalcade of nothing.

Yann Danis had two years under 2.00 - he went 1.86 as a sophomore and 1.81 as a senior. His 1.86 season had a .938 and his 1.81 had a .942. Yann had Scott Ford and Paul Esdale in front of him, as well as Gerry Burke and, later, others The case can be made that Yann had a little bit better defense, even though that defense was playing under a Roger Grillo system. Also take into consideration that Yann played for three straight years and by his senior year had earned a reputation of being a big-game goalie. Borelli stepped into this year and hadn't played in almost 2 years. In terms of talent, I think the edge goes to Yann, but I think Borelli might just be the more impressive goalie. There's no way we could've put the two in the same ball park back in October. We expected great things by Yann by the time he was done. Anyone expect this?

So what's that mean for this weekend? Well, every goalie needs a hallmark win. Yann certainly had his, as did players like Mike Clemente more recently. Admittedly my brain doesn't go back past Scott Stirling, but the case can be made that as the underdog, this is the moment where Borelli would need to go out and get his hallmark postseason victory. This is an RPI team that's talented and playing some of the best hockey out there, and I think this is one of those times where it's going to take something better than just an all-out effort by Bruno. They're going to need a little bit of luck, and they're going to need a Herculean performance from somebody. Borelli has a hallmark win over Yale, and he has those performances against Clarkson in the playoffs and Q'pac dring the year. But I still have the feeling that it was really a total team effort to dominate the Knights last week.

Throwing out a discussion point just for the hell of it, ,with no stats, logic, or anything - I really have the gut feeling that if Brown beats an RPI team that's ludicrously good, it'll be because Borelli stonewalls them in their own barn. Think about the flair for the dramatic; to do it in the playoffs would be something Herculean. He's already All-Ivy, but I'm just throwing it out there. It sounds good doesn't it (like 85-90 saves in 2 nights?)
