Got 6, Want More

Then there was a slightly later consolation game where you pulled the goalie in OT.

But a team could go oh-fer and ruin an NCAA bid, too.

Yes, we pulled the goalie in 2010 against Princeton. We needed a win. It was officially a tie even though we won in a shootout. That was more exciting than the championship game which I recall was a blowout unless I have my years mixed up.

I'd always rather have to play and win to determine my destiny than to sit and hope. To me, we are all there in LP, we want to see our team play, so drop the puck on the consolation game already. Ideally, this year, we could see Colgate goon it up against Q.;):eek:

Btw, the year everyone is discussing that we tied Princeton and won in a shootout in the consolation game was in 2009. That was the year that Yale beat Cornell 5-0 in the Championship game. Your memory does serve you well it would appear ;)

2010 we lost to Union 3-1 and then decided not to show up for the consolation the next day against Brown and lost 3-0. Still it was fun to watch an extra game win, lose or draw and I am all in favor of bringing back the consolation game! :)

Just a reminder for folks who wish to attend the pregame reception Friday before the game, SLU is asking folks to preregister online. The event is free of charge, but SLU will take donations.

Link to the event is here: https://alumni.stlawu.edu/ECACHockeyChampionships

Coach Carvel will be saying a few words at the event. It appears many former players and current player parents will be at the event.

Even that was a lost opportunity as I remember a Brown player taking liberties against a Saint and Brandon Bollig started to go after him and then stopped. That was Bollig's last game and if ever the dentist was going to let them fly in a college game it should have been then.

So I did remember correctly. That 2009 final was a total snoozefest.

If you are not following @SLUHockeyEquip on Twitter, you should be. He is cranking out some seriously great behind the scenes photos of the bus trip, the practices, the dressing room, equipment setup etc.. Especially great if you can't be in Placid in person.

Also if you haven't followed the "St. Lawrence Hockey Fans" page on Facebook, feel free to request membership. I'm reliving my hockey reporter days by aggregating everything I can find coming out of the tournament all in one place on that page. Now over 500 members there.

It's been 37 years since my last CCT-SLU game.

Father, forgive me. I was tempted to join the St. Lawrence Hockey Fans page. Is that a mortal sin?

Carvel gets COTY, Hayton and Sweetman 2nd team, Hayton and Gluchowski All-Rookie team.

Lyon takes GOTY, meh. Really a coin flip there, both spectacular for their respective teams.

Where is the Saints section? We're looking at the penalty boxes on TV.

Joe, based on pictures my dad has posted, they will be to the right of the penalty boxes when looking at them.

What channel are the games on? It was supposed to be on FCS but there is nothing broadcasting on that channel on Directv?

Fox 372 (Atlantic) via Time Warner (Rochester) has both games for monthly charge of $8.99 which pro rated comes out to some 60 cents for both nights if you cancel ASAP
Unfortunately on screen pic is not full size. Plus you miss the astute observations of our own Greg and Wally

Section 2-5 (opposite the benches and behind the Harvard goalie) are all Saints fans ... Going to be a great turnout it appears! :)
