Two teams having played a total of 23 ECAC games so far this season and only 1 loss between them. Who would have thunk it?

...and given last night's results, I don't see a clear picture on this league as a whole at all. Aside from the GPA ruiners at the top :p , the other 11 teams are separated by 9 points.

We do seem to have a tougher schedule remaining than most as we have 7 road ECAC games and only 4 home ECAC games remaining. Not that anyone is a soft touch in this league but we have to play QU twice.

If I remember correctly, in order to get a bye in the first round of the ECAC tournament, you normally have to average 1.5 points per home game (10games) and 1 point per road game (10 games) and a split with your travel partner (2 games) which equals 28 points. i am sure this formula does not work all the time but it is fairly close most of the time. So far this year we have 7 points in 6 home games (2 points less than we needed), 4 points in 4 road games (right on schedule) and a sweep of Union which has really helped (2 points above what was needed). We are right where we need to be (and far above what i had expected).

Just for the record 1.5*10 + 1*10 + 2*1 = 27, not 28.

In years past, it has been about 25 points needed to secure a bye. We're halfway through the schedule and slightly ahead of the pace for that (we're on 15, 4th place Harvard is on 13, 5th place Yale on 12 with a game in hand). Could it be higher this year? Perhaps, given there isn't really much of a basement dweller this year.

It's possible, but based on the KRACH model that lugnut just put up, it's going to end up being a heck of a lot more than 25 needed, as the models have us finishing on 25 in 5th.

Forgot to add the one road point against our travel partner to my list to make 28

You aid originally a split against our travel partner, not a win at home and a tie on the road. That's how I got 27.

And it looks like no video feed as well. Can anyone confirm this?

They may not have a link yet but it should be a free HD feed.

Was going to say, I thought all the ECAC scholarship schools have free feeds...

Colgate has the toughest schedule down the stretch. After this upcoming weekend, we play 6 of our next 7 (all league games) on the road :(

Thanks. I did not see it listed on the schedule for upcoming events but saw the Cornell and Colgate games on the 5th and 6th. That is why I asked the question. Hopefully their schedule is wrong.

In something of a surprise, Quinnipiac was able to gain no better than a tie tonight against Maine, which is currently bringing up the rear in the Hockey East standings. As a matter of fact, QU very nearly lost the game, scoring the tying goal with the goalie pulled in the final minute.

Guess the Bobcats got caught looking ahead to their big game on Thursday night against their closest pursuers in their own league. ;)
