FWIW, Mr. Schott has given Kazzy RotW as well, but also GotW. He also names us as the team of the week.

At least we earned some sort of Schott Hat Trick.:)

I would agree that Princeton's goalies stood on their heads in the games of Jan. 11-12, but Mike Condon was the one who faced RPI. Sean Bonar played against Union on Friday night. Thanks for the correction Waite -- Condon's GAA is even higher! :p

In the past we were his team of the weak. ;)

yikes....just heard on NHL Live that Cole Bardreau (Cornell) had actually fractured a bone in his neck on that check by Burg, he'll be out for the rest of the year.

Genuinely feel sorry for that happening. I don't ever want any player form any team hurt. (can't say that about a few coaches and officials though) The penalty was definitely deserved as we have all discussed. This is why the NCAA has made these kinds of checks a focal point. One can only hope the boy is OK and this is a non-displaced minor fracture of a spinous process posterior to a cervical vertebrae. These injuries can be very minor-with full recovery-or they can be impossibly tricky with poor prognosis. (think Christopher Reeve) Certainly any neurologic sequellae will be well known by now and all precautions taken. Wish him a speedy and full recovery.

Condon's overall GAA may be higher, but he has had RPI's number when he's faced them. In three career starts against the Engineers, he is 2-0-1, with a GAA of 1.62 and a save percentage of .944.

I know the postseason is a long way off, but Condon is not high on my list of goalies I want to see in the opposing net at playoff time.

As I expected, the QPac win pulled our RatingsPI down (granted one ten-thousandth of a point, but given where we are, it's quite important). The most important thing, at this point, is to get the W against Union to help it out.

To first order, it should help things when teams we played do well. We should also have benefitted from Union beating Harvard since we played Union twice and Harvard only once. Also Sacred Heart lost on Sunday which should have had a small negative effect. I didn't check the RatingsPI after Sunday.

Anyway beating Union will be more important.

Thanks Doc, always glad to hear a medical opinion on such injuries. My question is, how serious could it have been if he was hit again after returning to the ice?
It seems to me that they Cornell coaching staff was very negligent in putting him back in the game.
This should be a wake up call for all of college hockey to take precautions when a player is injured in a game.
At the very least a quick examination of the player before sending him back out on the ice.
Is there any protocol in place for this?

Anyway beating Union will be more important. Saw the U - H game last night...including golden boy Vesey going goon squad on U kid in the final minute +. Also saw some very familiar faces there...nuff said

Really. The drop of our RPI one ten-thousandth of a point, in January, when we aren't even a TUC, when we're not even a .500 team, is important. OK.

The mere inclusion of the salt shed on that list renders the whole thing moot. No Oswego or Plattsburgh on that list? What a joke.
