Nate is a good coach. I wouldn't be surprised that Lou from the Jersey Devils puts him behind the bench of his team... Providence connection, love of the trap. My best to you and Jenny and the rest of the gang here on the board. Happy Thanksgiving.

And of course our feeling are the same for you. We have quite a crew here posting on the USCHO board and especially on the RPI threads. We are very grateful and thankful to be here with all of you.(well, almost all of you:rolleyes:)

Also, we will need to find an answer for Jones 1, Jones 2, and Anas.

I was at the game and it is pretty obvious that both teams are at a high level. The funny thing was that other than his goal, Anas did not have a very good rest of the game, the size factor and physicality of PC really got to him, the kid is an opportunistic puck hound though with an inate ability to finish. Peca, the Jones twins and Samuels-Thomas are a handful for any team, they missed way to many open nets in OT last night though. Q's defensive zone giveaways has been been their Achilles heel so far.

I had thought (hoped?) that Quinnipiac's losses on defense and in goal would spell their doom this season, but it doesn't look like that has happened. OTOH, RPI seems to have Achilles heels on each foot. :(

Actually Q's defense is quite good, limiting the opposition to 18-19 shots a game, they just have brain farts trying to breakout of their own zone, resulting in giveaways. The goalie really needs to be tested and hasn't been yet.

RPI is certainly capable of severely testing a goalie, but they have to play at a high level for 60 minutes.

Hard to get excited about RPI hokey when we have this long a layoff during the season. I hope that coach has a lot of Rustoloeum handy for the weekend.:)

I have that concern also. QU and PU played this weekend -- we did't.

QU recorded a pretty dominant victory over UMass, while PU got smacked around by Michigan State.

I guess we can hope that QU will arrive in Troy complacent, while PU will arrive demoralized.

Agree Ralph. As LT pointed out Q has played 8 conference games and allowed more than 23 shots in only 1. RPI has scored 3 or more goals in 5 of their 7 conference games so it would appear RPI is in a position to score some goals even against a stingy D. The challenge will be RPI's defense against Q's offense. Q puts a ton of rubber on net.

I don't get why everyone is so worried about Quinnipiac, when the team we should REALLY be worried about is the team that plays a system that RPI has shown to be unable to play against year in and year out.

Well, for starters, because RPI is playing Quinnipiac this Friday night.

If, going into Friday night's game, our team's focus is fixated on the team they played three weeks before, they'll really be in trouble.

Before the last game, SA said that the team was a bit banged up, and some of the players were playing through injuries.
I think that we will get more from not playing this weekend, than we would have if we played.
A really good week of practice will get us ready for the upcoming games.

Fair enough. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not all too worried about Quinnipiac, and it's solely from a standpoint of match-up. Based upon LTSatch's account of how Q has been playing this year, along with a quick look at box scores (specifically Providence and a couple ECAC games), if the team plays their game, they'll be fine.

WOW...This thread seems 2 be full of bullies....Happy Thanksgiving everyone....
Yes, although I'm not sure Bullies is the most descriptive term. However, insomuch as there is already way too much naming calling on RPI related threads, I'll go along with Bullies. Good Observation.

Interesting state from USCHO ECAC blog: RPIís 14.3 percent shooting percentage is the best in the country. :eek:
