What did you guys in the Capital District do to FlagDUDE08? He hasn't been seen here since Tuesday's game. :eek:

I blame you for when he returns.

Patent, bottle and share your "easy fix" with other coaches. You will become a very rich man!!:)

I can't wait until you disappear again. I'll even trade the aforementioned individual for you. He may not know what he's talking about but at least he's not 100% negative.

Not a big surprise although i still felt defensively we were just not good last game. tonight will provide more information-is the chemistry of the lines as they stand OK or will SA need to do some tinkering. I do like Tinordi and McGowan when they are on the ice together-but the more i see of Tinordi-the more I like him with everyone.

I heard many of the faithful are upset with him over his full throated defense of Stewie in my very popular anti-Stewart thread I started or the girlfriend isn't letting him post anymore.

Did I hear that you got hitched? Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Aspy-Marriage is a wonderful institution. I have been institutionalized for some time. My vocabulary has slowly decreased and now simply consists of saying "yes dear". BTW, Jenny sends regards and is wondering if you and TB are coming down to Princeton this year?

Been on a road trip with the quite potential FlagDUDETTE. Under my own power, too. And AspyDad, she would like to have a discussion with you the next time we are at HFH. ;)

Just back from the game. Not much to say other than it could have gone either way. Harvard got the bounce and RPI didn't. It was a game of bounces as the ice looked to be pretty bad and the puck wasn't lying flat all game it seemed. Thought the Engineers might get the equalizer pressing near the end but what appeared to me to be a phantom high stick call with about 2 mins left ended a promising looking push (and took the puck back to our end). And then a blown tire led to the Harvard empty netter (probably about the 4th of the night that I saw).

Harvard just might have a decent team. Bad news for my pick the standings entry;(.

Diebold and the post kept the score from being even higher for Harvard last night. Great turnout by the RPI fans and the Pep Band for making the trip out. My friend said to me it feels like a RPI home game there was so many RPI fans there.

Is anyone else concerned, it is now 5 periods of hockey since we have scored a goal and now that we are in league play we have yet to win. I'm already starting to feel like it will be just another year.

There really is no such thing as "just another year" for RPI. There has been little consistency from one year to the next under Seth. But the overall trend has been upward which is a good sign.

Also, we didn't win a league game last year until our seventh game, and that worked out okay. :D Team is in a funk, they'll pull out of it, but it might involve another lineup switch or two.

Didn't the crossbar help Harvard on one shot from Haggerty also though?

My concern is on that track, but different. We have yet to play a sixty minute game this year. I don't think we've even played a second period halfway decently yet. In our non-league matchups, and yes I include Sacred Heart, we were lucky to win. I'm not at all surprised we haven't won a league game yet, despite the sample.

Have any of our opponents played 60 minutes?

BC did for sure.

BC did for sure.being outshot 13-2 in the 1st period might say otherwise.

So true-you don't have to play 60 minutes every night to win(it sure helps though). But you do have to come out in each period with drive, ferocity, and poise. And you have to do the same at the close of each period. We seem to give up an all important goal early or late in some periods-and it kills us. I remember an old coach saying that it is most important to win the fist 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes of every period. Before anyone panics-other than the plethora of goals BC lpushed in after we played them very tough for over 25 minutes-no one has really blown us off our skates. Should we have won the other night against Harvard? Well, you should be able to play better once you have a 3-0 lead. Last night-we just did not get that 1 goal(or 2 goals) that we needed. It happens. If our defense does not give up that extremely early goal in the second period-we might be singing a different tune right now. That may have been the difference. Harvard may just be a very good team that played super against us. Let's all hope we respond well to this and go up to DC and play a better game. i am sure SA will figure out what we need to do-and i do thing we have the weapons to do what he wants.
