Does anyone on the tailgate committee (aka babo) know if we will have enough room for the 6 burner grill? I just have to double check to make sure its still available for Saturday. If it isn't, I can get at least a portable grill. FF - i would say YES...we'll make room !! Last I heard we were waiting on a decision on where we can set up for the tailgate - B lot or up the hill.

We have quite a bit to correct. Penalty kill. Putrid power play, which I believe was 1 for 11 on the weekend. Focus on D.
I would suggest burying some even strength pucks to your whine list. Shots were something like 18-6 early in the 2nd and we had one goal to show for it . Lest we not forget, BC is a stacked squad from top to bottom. Credit to them weathering the storm early and putting us on our heels in third.

I didn't see the game so I can't comment on the PP. We sure as heck have enough skill on this team to make it work.

As many have said -- the beauty of the season is that there's no time for the lads to dwell ...right back at it Friday at BU. GO RED!

Ok, will double check tomorrow about the grill. Will check back here during the week for final word on where we will be at.

Alan York was nominated to the 2004-13 AJHL All-Decade Team http://ajhl.ca/media-centre/news-archives.html?newsID=3585. You have to vote for 10 players, and I haven't even heard of that many of them.

Thanks to the Union thread for the link.

The power play had some instances on Sunday where they held the zone for quite a while, but most of the 14 minutes on the man advantage was spent in our own zone. That certainly needs to be fixed before Friday.

BC's 2nd goal (the Johnny Gaudreau PP goal) was not going to be stopped. He was furious that he didn't have a penalty shot (and his case had quite a bit of merit), so he was going to score on that power play, even if he had to play all two minutes of it. And, their first power play goal was just some beautiful stick work by Johnny. I think it was Leonard that he burned on the play, but I can't remember specifically. The penalty kill was not weak, they just ran into a freight train of skill.

I hope to be able to listen in on Friday and Saturday. Have a great tailgate. Hopefully, I'll be able to make a trip out to Lake Placid in March.

At least from what I heard on the radio, the majority sounded like our traditional pass-pass-pass-turnover. I fully understand working the good shot, and BC's PK may have been strong enough that nothing was open; that's going to happen. I do recall a number of shots vs. SHU. Sounds like the boys will be working on recognition of openness this week in practice, or other ways to create openness without all of the cross-ice passes that results in turnovers.

I think one RPI goal on Sunday was just a few seconds after a Matheson penalty expired and the puck never left the zone. De facto PPG for RPI in my opinion. But, I thought the RPI player in the crease entered before the puck and interfered with Demko enough that it should have been disallowed. The review on that might be the longest review I've ever seen in my life. Thankfully for the officials the building wasn't full because it would not have been pretty if they took that long in front of a full house.

RPI wasn't able to clog the neutral zone once it got to 3-1 after BC struck twice in a matter of seconds. Prior to that they were clogging it up like crazy but did a good job doing it cleanly (much different than the way some HE teams do it). The game got away from them from there.

WS is right...if you CAN bring it (and it's not trouble) feel free! I'm bringing a camp oven/grill too so don't kill yourself. I'm awaiting confirmation on the Lot we'll be using so stand by...
Let's just pray (is that even allowed anymore?) for good weather. If it rains, I'm going to have to see if we can get hold of a pop up shelter...or go in the lobby...right now I'm finalizing the parents' bus to BU so I'll focus on tailgate when I'm done with this.
RPI Hockey is back and it's gonna' be fun! :cool:

Well, the cake is ordered. The Cookie Factory didn't have cherry filling, so I went with strawberry. (I figured more people like strawberry, and hey, it's still red.) I can't stay for the whole thing, it's my in-laws anniversary so we are taking them out. Just tell me when and where to bring it and it will be there. (I'll probably want to bring some home, though.)

Sounds good, I will be making the trek out to BU as well. Figure why not do all the Boston area schools these next few weeks. NU and BC last weekend, BU this weekend, Harvard coming up at the start of November. :)

However you want to handle the cake dealyo is great...

UPDATE ON TAILGATE LOCATION: Show Time 3pm. We have been asked to have the Tailgate in Lot E (yes, E). Therefore, if we encounter inclement weather, I ask anyone who may have one of those stadium/pop-up tent thingy's to please bring it. Should the weather be a storm, I suggest the Hilton Garden Inn and gather in the lobby by the fireplace. We will have to make some adjustments (like no grilling...haha!) but we can still gather...

That will make things a bit more difficult. Diebold is a good replacement, but not as good as Kas.
I would like to know when this happened. I don't remember any collisions at BC.

The tweet doesn't say which shoulder, either. Kazzie was beaten high on his left side on several of the goals on Sunday. The injury might have happened before Sunday's game but had originally been shrugged off as "nothing out of the ordinarly, just a typical ache and pain" until it wasn't healing properly and they then looked into it further. I'm sure details will emerge soon enough to squelch all the interim speculations....

Ok so I am unable to get the grill mostly due to my after game activities, so Im working on a plan B which may include a smaller portable grill to complement the grill/oven babo is bringing. Plan B also may just be a whole bunch of Bella Napoli treats like I did last year....hence plan B :)
