Speaking of math, we could sure use some help from some of our previous opponents on Friday to make us a TUC. But more important is to beat Union. Furthermore becoming a TUC is only a first step.

It's still a step. As Coach Appert keeps reminding everyone: One day at a time, one step at a time. If we look forward to something else, a step will catch us by surprise.

We didn't have much of any influence when we were waiting to see if we'd make the tournament in 2011, either. Things can happen. It does take some fortune at times, and obviously we can help ourselves even more by winning, but what if that doesn't happen?

If we don't win, then we don't deserve to be there. I don't want to get into a tournament only to play one game.
Lets win and get in the right way.

Lets win and get in the right way. I want to see us score a goal after about 3 1/2 NCAA games without one. Then I will worry about a win. :)

Meaningless.

Bennett before today's practice: "I don't think we've dominated them [RPI]. I think we've had a lot of puck luck. I think we've had some fortunate bounces, too. It's just kind of gone our way. I expect a team that's ready to play. "

By the way, thanks to those who offered kind words on the Appert interview. Much appreciated.

That sounds like a kind way of saying-"We've won most of the time lately and we want to continue doing so." Hockey players and coaches are gracious if nothing else-especially while they are out there beating your brains in and bashing you up against the boards.

Bennett is the local king of coach-speak, even bettering our own great coach. Including calling Jooris' concussion an "upper-lower body injury..."

Buddy and I went over and watched U beat H on Tuesday night. They are playing much more like the U of old... I fully expect a 3 period banger. That said, if RPI continues to play like they have, I very much like our chances.

ya know....I just noticed that on my Tix for the Sat. tilt it says it's a 7pm start, everywhere else I see 7:30. I'll have to double-check w/the Box Office tomorrow.

Planning on capturing some postgame remarks from both sides on Saturday night. Hope to post a few hours after the game.

The way the season has progressed, the two most difficult road trips in the ECAC have to now be Q/P and R/U. I would also think that physically-the Captial District trip has to be the more demanding. Both Union and RPI just have 18 players who take the body. Saturday i am just hoping for us to play well, give as much ice time to those who have not played in the league games, and most importantly-come out unscathed. It is just too late in the season to experience any sort of injury and a game without importance in the standings to take great risk. I never like to lose-ever. In fact i do not like even winning some times. I strive to win big-to beat a team so they keep it in their mind for the next game that we really beat them at all aspects of the game. But honestly, this is one i could care less about the win/loss. Just want us to play well and demonstrate to the opponent that we will not be pushed around. Just my 2 as usual. Go Red!!!

I agree that Q/P and R/U are currently the most demanding ECAC road trips, but I think that Q/P is harder especially when one factors in the travel between the two sites. (Unless there is traffic jam in Latham. ;) )

Excellent. I love the U of old.

I really think that we have to play hard for 60/65 minutes this week. The last thing we need is a blow out getting in the way of the momentum we have been building.
This team is not mature enough to turn it on and off anytime they want.
