I love beating RPI because their fans get super butthurt and start whining about "thugs" and "goons" and refuse to accept the loss as anything but a product of said thuggery.


Don't forget that any and all RPI losses are also the result of referee thuggery as well ;)

Congratulations, Brown! The rest of the league is proud of you for knocking off an RPI squad that was as unimpressive of a "#2 seed" as I've ever seen. You've got this Cornell fan rooting for you in AC.

I'm glad we don't have to face Dartmouth or Cornell in AC. They honestly worry me more than the three teams who made it.


I agree. Those two teams are perennial spoilers for the Bears.

What time is Friday's game? (I know it's the "early one," but when?) I may have to leave work early to catch the stream.

Also be aware that the games are televised, assuming you pick up FOX Sports Atlantic.

The quest for a title continues!! Great game for Brown all aroound. Except for the last 4-5 minutes of the second, Bruno dominated the Engineers. RPI except for that short period seemed to be playing more individual hockey than team hockey. Undoubtedly RPI missed the senior leadership of its terrific Dman Baillen and Brown took advantage.

When Brown scored first you could sense it was Brown's night. Even after RPI came back with 2 quick ones, that feeling was not gone. You could tell Brown was not losing any composure. Watching the players come off their shifts, it was a good sign for me that a Brown coach was right with them, apparently with some words of encouragement. I never, never saw that in the Grillo era. But the last two minutes were nonetheless nailbiting times. It took me 15 minutes to get my heartbeat rate down. Thankfully, I only had a 15 minute drive home.

I took my grandkids to the game again and apparently they heard a Brown fan talking about Roy. They asked me about it, and they could not understand why a player would do that, much less leave Brown. They agreed to take up a collection to buy a bus ticket for Roy to AC!!

Yeah...Brown really dominated RPI with those 3 shots in the second period and 4 in the third. Brown was actually dominated from the second period on. Give credit to Borelli though, 40 saves kept Brown in it the whole game and without him Brown doesn't win last night.

I will stick by the domination comment. True, Brown had only a handful of shots and RPI had many more, but their shots were the ones Brown wanted them to take, ie, low percentage ones.

P'TOOO! Sorry I had to spit out those grapes. They tasted sour. That'll teach me to buy produce in Troy, NY. :D

This is unfortunately a deserved comment for may RPI fans. We have many among us who whine about refs. That said... they are sometimes pretty bad. I just don't happen to think that they are necessarily worse for us than for others. It's human nature to remember the bad calls against your own team more I guess. One's impression of whether a call was bad or not though is often a reflection of how much one really knows about hockey to begin with.


Congratulations, Brown! The rest of the league is proud of you for knocking off an RPI squad that was as unimpressive of a "#2 seed" as I've ever seen. You've got this Cornell fan rooting for you in AC.
Brilliant comment there LS. You managed to insult one team while simultaneously debasing the other's accomplishment.

As for the Brown folks here... congratulations on a hard fought win. I don't think the better team won but that's hockey. We are 2-2-1 on the season. I for one would enjoy a 6th game with Bailen in the lineup for us. There is an infinitessimally small chance for that to happen this year but in reality it won't happen. It would be like finding an actual Sasquatch or a Cornell Alum who was completely free of smugness. I'm still looking for my first.

Best luck in AC.

I notice the Flyers are off both Friday and Saturday. I wonder if Harry Z will make the trip to AC?

I believe he's still with the Phantoms. Flyers sent him down to free up a roster space and with still 2 games to serve on his suspension and the shortened season, I don't see them calling him up any time soon. It's an unfortunate situation.

Oh, and yay Bruno! :D

I checked the rosters because I knew he was up-and-down; he's listed on the Flyers and not the Phantoms. Maybe they failed to update.

Congrats to my second-favorite ECAC team ;)
Good Luck to the Bears in AC!
Hope you can bring the Whitelaw Cup home to Providence

Thanks for the heads-up. I liked the way he stressed that Borelli is a part of the Brown team, an important one at that, and not the one person who is responsible for brown's success.

Whittet has a very good reputation for being one of the better coach interviews in the league.

Is anyone else heading down to Atlantic City? I'm hoping for a good turnout by Brown fans, but with students on spring break right now, I don't know if it will happen.

One of the things about WHittet is that he's very honest about what his team does, what he expects of them, and what his views are. It's actually refreshing from my conversations with some journalists because they are looking for a guy who is honest. Other coaches are too volatile and others are too guarded. They prefer a guy who says, "this is waht we do well. This is what we don't do well." Brendan also puts the emphasis on the team instead of one player in a year when it could easily be one guy.

Good Luck Bruno....Fun to still be playing. All the best ! BTW...Your goalie has one of the best catching glove hands I have seen in awhile...very quick !
