Better than in 2011? ;) Couldn't be much worse.

It's only been two games (not counting the exhibition), but so far, RPI's penalty kill is bringing back glowing memories of the days of Neil Hernberg and Terry Butryn, having killed every opponent's power play successfully while scoring two short-handed goals.

The rest of the story: when not short-handed, RPI has given up nine goals and scored one. :eek:

North Dakota may be quite happy this Saturday if the refs keep their penalty calls against RPI to a minimum.

It's the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame game.

Homecoming weekend at North Dakota, and apparently the 100th Anniversary of the Homecoming celebration.

Not a lot of history between these two schools. By my count they've played only 9 games against one another, and four of them were played in the 1984 calendar year.

Yes, 9 is correct, and RPI's record is 1-8. :( The only victory came in the second of a two-game set early in the 1984-5 season.

I was at that series. Right around Thanksgiving, as I recall. UND won a wild game Friday, but got blown out Saturday. I think Friday's loss was the last for RPI that year. Terrific team.

Yes, second and last loss of the season. There was a tie against Lake State in the second of a two-game, total-goals, first round NCAA playoff series.

I know some RPI fans that still credit UND for teaching RPI how (what it takes) to win that weekend. They claim they saw RPI with an entirely new attitude after that weekend.


PS - As an alumnus, I can't lose this game. However, I'll be in green.

It's good to know that RPI is still producing people with a precise knowledge of the English language. :p

No, I just consider myself an expert of logic, including smart*** logic. It's easy to win trivia contests when you play with a bunch of Clavins.

The logical inference being that you might not actually be an expert..... ;) merely that you consider yourself to be one.
