RPI looks to keep its new-found team chemistry.

Mankato is also coming off a win and a tie. They were playing UAH.

We're young and talented, struggled Saturday to finish, particularly on the power play. Should be a fun series.

When we played UAH a couple years ago, they were one-goal games. Plus, given Kepler's third law of ECAC hockey (and yes I do realise that MSU-M is WCHA), there is no way I'm writing off any team until we're done playing them.

Simply put-we have not played on the road yet this season. As far as I am concerned we can almost throw out the results so far. We had a nice if not perfect weekend at home in Troy. This is a bit of a haul to travel-and some legs travel better than others. This 2 game set will add to what we know about our team and what we can expect. I think we have gained a considerable amount of confidence playing at home. But that can mean absolutely zippo a thousand miles away. If you are SA, what changes if any do you make? Who plays in goal for the 2 games? And what color suit do you wear?

Does anyone know if the 'Tute is going by bus or flying?

If it's a tan suit, we might as well just write up an L now.

Sure would not like to have stretch out those legs after sitting on a bus for that trip. It better be a plane, and a direct flight at that.:eek:

BUS ??? 1250+ miles BUS ???
Minneapolis is only about 80 miles from Mankato. so I would guess that would be the flight destination.

The dark suit is 1-0-1 in '12/'13. ;)

I would think that is what they were doing, but I just wanted to confirm. For all I know, we are going by barge on the Erie Canal (a.k.a NY State Barge Canal) and then through the Great Lakes to Duluth. ;)

I'd drive it, but that's just me and I like road trips.

We've gone back to calling it the Erie Canal, despite what the Twin Bridges sign tells you. ;)

Maybe we need to take SA to Jos A Bank and buy him a couple of other dark ones when they have their buy 1 get 2 free sale as the deal of the day?;)

That makes perfect sense to me. But then again, I take a lot of medication.:)
