Heard today via Twitter that RPI tentatively slated to play UMD at the 2014 Ice Breaker tournament at the Compton Family Arena in South Bend, IN. Notre Dame is hosting it and they are moving it back to on campus sites. I look forward to it!

Sweetness! I had heard rumours about playing a Minnesota tournament, but I guess this may be what was being referred. At least we know this won't go to three overtimes. ;)

I figured that Stay@homeDad is related to you because his last name is also Dad. ;)

RED: There are 10 major bones that could be broken in the wrist-2 in the lower forearm (Ulnar and Radius) and 8 smaller carpal bones. Even a hairline crack of one of the smaller bones can be problematic. In the old days when we had to rely on simple X-Rays and physical diagnosis-you could miss a non displaced hairline crack. But you would figure it out in a acouple weeks when the injury did not imporve or even got worse. In today's world-with CT Scans and MRIs you just have so much information that it is something you cannot miss the diagnosis. This tells me that the diagnosis was probably known rather quickly-but for some reason did not respond or was not totally treated. The good news-99+% of these kinds of injuries heal perfectly well and you aqre as good as new eventually (at most a couple months). With some of these you can play virtually at 100% with a simple cast or brace. The bad news-with some of these you can lose 2-4 months if the initial injury is severe enough and in this case that could be most if not all of the season. It sounds like the latter is the case here-he might be back playing by March and who knows in what kind of condition? SA if not anything else-is extremely careful with his players health. I absolutely applaud him for erring on the side of caution. in my medical experience i have just seen too many careers (sports and otherwise) ruined or altered by rushing back from injury.

Thanks for the analysis and explanation! Interested to see how the lines shake out tomorrow night with the injuries...

I hope it does and we win, which will kinda make up for 1985. :D

Nothing, absolutely nothing, can ever make up for 1985. Single most exciting hockey game I have ever seen live. Two incredibly talented teams just going at it and neither giving an inch. Honestly thought even though we prevailed-that the game took far too much out of everyone and that we would have nothing left for Providence the next night. Even though the entire team celebrated and was ecstatic coming off the ice-you could see the looks on the faces of Hammond, Carter, Oates, etc as if to say they were not sure they could come in 20 or so hours and do this again.

Providence also went to 3OT, although they played the night before and did not receive 3AM room service calls.

Exactly-we had virtually no turn around time while Providence had a complete day off. i know what Jenny and i felt like going back to the arena less than 24 hours later (we were completely wired after that Friday night game)-so I could only imagine what the boys were like.

Totally agree with everything you said. Just wanted to add for those younger posters in here (or just in case some people forgot) that the OT periods were only 10 minutes rather than 20 and they didn't resurface the ice until the end of the second OT. They just switched ends after the first OT.

Another good question to ask from that game would be: What if RPI was not given a power play after the scrum broke out at the end of the 2nd OT? How long would they have gone?

It's hard to tell of course, but it could have ended quickly. Although no goals had been scored for over 20 minutes at that point, there were already 10 goals in the game, so it was not a low-scoring game.

Did not know that! Fascinating tid bit.

2011 made up for that. Although UMD fans will say 1984 was more heartbreaking. Obviously losing in the title game is worse than the semis.

As Ralph responded-with 10 goals scored and the firepower of those two teams-someone would have scored fairly soon. But you brought up a very interesting point. When the penalties were called at the end of the 2nd OT-I was sure it was a bunch of even up calls. We were astonished to see that we were awarded the extra man. The feeling most had around us was that if we did not score on that advantage-we were not going to win. BTW if you ever want to see cool and collected-watch the video of the game carefully and check out Ken Hammond for the last 2+ minutes of regulation. We needed to score to tie it up at 5-5 and he just played the situation perfectly. No panic, no pressure, just calmly control the puck and direct everything. Just plain masterful.
