At least need a point the first night at the very least. Need to wrap up a decent first round home ice and then get home healthy. Have to make sure we take care of business first-without looking ahead to the following weekend and the playoffs.

Yeah a Friday point would be something different.

RPI cannot get the bye. With at least two points due to number of wins tiebreak OR a SLU loss, they can clinch first round home ice.

Union has nothing to play for. They have the top seed locked up.

Yale still has an outside shot at a bye. I say outside because of Cornell's opponents, as well because Cornell holds the tiebreak. They rquire not only to win out, but for Cornell to get no more than one point.

Brown is fighting to not have to travel in the first round. They control their own destiny towards this goal.

Yale actually has a better chance of QU losing both games and Yale winning out. highly unlikely as well, but more likely than Cornell losing both next weekend.

Union does have something to play for: to keep a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

And that's exactly how I was able to get Yale to 3rd. Either either or the other may happen. And Cornell doesn't have to lose both, they can get a tie on one. ;)

I would just like to see Yale play two solid games in a row. Hasn't really happened a lot this season. At least not on the same weekend.

And both Yale and Brown have something to fight for. Yale is in contention for a bye and trying to get themselves into a better PWR position. Brown usually gives Union fits.

I expect Bennett won't let these guys relax. Union needs to stay sharp, as they'll have a week off before hosting a QF playoff series.

The potential for a number one NCAA seed has to be a major factor so I assume RB will put all available first liners on the ice to try to assure that spot and hope for the bye week to rest the wounded. In my view the one player they absolutely cannot afford to lose is Colin Stevens who has developed into an elite goaltender. I'm sure they'd love to give him a game off but I don't see it happening.

Maybe Sak can play one game next weekend, but I also doubt it. Stevens will have the bye week to rest up.

Someone had posted suggestions on where to park in New Haven to attend the Yale hockey game this coming Saturday, but I can't find it now. Could we have a reprise in this thread please?

Someone had posted suggestions on where to park in New Haven to attend the Yale hockey game this coming Saturday, but I can't find it now. Could we have a reprise in this thread please? There is on street parking near the arena that requires paying a meter until 9pm. Meters do NOT have to fed between 9pm and 8am. Most around the rink accept debit cards so that you only have to feed it once. There is a parking garage behind the rink that fills up rather quickly for big games. The cost is $5 per car. Downside of garage is that it takes quite a while to empty after games and if you end up on a higher level, you might as well bring a six pack and post game until it clears out. I would advise arriving at least 45-60 minutes early to take advantage of either of these options. If you would like to park 1/2 mile away on city streets, there is a nice Irish Pub called Anna Liffeys at 17 Whitney Ave, New Haven, CT 06510 , which is a great spot for pregame or postgame food and drink. http://annaliffeys.com/ Hopefully this link will show walking diresctions from Liffey's to Ingalls. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Anna+Liffey's,+17+Whitney+Ave,+New+Haven,+CT+06510/Ingalls+Rink,+73+Sachem+St,+New+Haven,+CT/@41.3138105,-72.9251159,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x89e7d9c9fe3390 b5:0xf06b3b85229a8f2f!2m2!1d-72.922368!2d41.310821!1m5!1m1!1s0x89e7d9b7e520e697 :0xa40b4f5a8c178afb!2m2!1d-72.925019!2d41.316792!3e2

Anna Liffey's will be hosting the RPI Alumni Association meet-and-greet with Seth Appert before the game.

I just purchased my ECAC tourney tickets from the Yale website and checked on availability for both the RPI and Union games. Best available showed standing room only left for both games, check with your respective home offices for seats before buying from Yale if you want to sit in a seat.

Wow, really? I had been thinking about going this weekend. Didn't think it would be a problem getting tickets last minute.

Union had 100 tickets and they sold out of them. Only tickets on Yale's site are SRO.

Too bad I don't know everyone on the team anymore. I think they get two tickets each to give away to family/friends.
