That is awesome, I came here to see if there was any information about how we could watch home games with the TWCS, now Spectrum Sports, not carrying the games. Will there be live commentary or just the video feed?

Good news - RIT just announced they'll be streaming all their home games from their Sports Zone website: http://www.rit.edu/sportszone/

Did they? They announced the homecoming game for sure, but the SportsZone site only shows games airing on CW-Rochester (a development for which we're still waiting on an official announcement).

At least for homecoming it appears to be the full RIT SportsZone broadcast, just like you would see on TV, including pre- and post-game.

Our preview of the weekend- good luck.

http://northeasternhockeyblog.com/game-day/scouting-the-opponent-rit-tigers-northeastern-huskies-homecoming-hockey-blue-cross-arena/

Speaking of previews, here is a sample of the Northeastern line up that is currently generating 7.6666 Goals a game. This is why I don't miss D3 Hockey.

#31 Cayden Primeau (Keith Primeau's son) - 2017 round 7 #199 overall by Montréal Canadiens
#4 Jeremy Davies - 2016 round 7 #192 overall by New Jersey Devils
#5 Ryan Shea - 2015 round 4 #121 overall by Chicago Blackhawks
#17 Matt Filipe - 2016 round 3 #67 overall by Carolina Hurricanes
#8 Adam Gaudette - 2015 round 5 #149 overall by Vancouver Canucks
#9 Dylan Sikura - 2014 round 6 #178 overall by Chicago Blackhawks
#21 Nolan Stevens - 2016 round 5 #125 overall by St. Louis Blues

Thanks. Thought I made that change when I edited it. Clearly not. Will fix now, cheers.

Zero mention of the Norrishs. When you know you didn't scout that well.

Coaching staff needs to hold a math class. 1,2,3,4,5 + goalie, no mas! Other than that... The team and fans looked pretty good!

Credit where it's due. Your guys deserved the T and maybe more. Can't say enough good things about the quality of the RITzone video production. Best I've seen at the college level, bar none.

Giving up a 3-goal lead always hurts. I don't care who you're playing against. Now if you tell me we got a tie without telling me how the tie happened, I'd be thrilled, so I can't really complain, but we should have been able to hold on for a win.

Rumor has it we did not sell out the BCA tonight. Fewer than 9,000 in attendance if what I read is accurate. What has changed?

I would cut some slack when you are previewing opponents that you don't know well. While the writer did their homework with the Corsi scores, unless they knew that the Norish twins were injured a good portion of the year last year, you would think they might not be that good or just don't play all the time. The writer is probably not paid to do writeups and does it as a labor of love. I know when I did them for the old Corner Crew site, I was not checking into why a player didn't play the full schedule.

A couple of the power plays in the 3rd I think changed momentum towards the Huskies and eventually lead to the tying goal. A few of those calls were questionable, IMO.

To beat a high caliber Hockey East team like NU we needed to play a near perfect high tempo game. We almost did it but the too many players on the ice calls and a few of the other questionable penalties gave me that sinking feeling that momentum was shifting. We still played our guts out and Drackett played a heck of a game. I was sitting by the RIT bench and it was strange seeing the new Prez before the game and not Destler but all and all we have a lot to be proud of tonight. Ties seem to be the trend at these Brick City games the last few years. The attendance seemed close to capacity maybe not quite a sell out.

I'm sure having not won our homecoming game since 2011 is probably finally starting to hurt interest. Last year the game "sold out" but had a ton of empty seats so it was clear RIT just bought them up to say it sold out. Guess this year they didn't want to buy 2000 tix.

Drakett looked like the real deal tonight. Hope that wasn't just a fluke...would be nice to have a guy we can trust in net so early and as a freshman.

I am consistently annoyed by non-conference officiating. Feels like whenever we visit another team's barn their conference officials tend to favor them, and when we host non-conference teams the AHA officials' peculiar brand of incompetency also always seems to favor the other "superior" team. Nothing called in the 1st period at all, but as soon as we went ahead all of a sudden they didn't see a borderline infraction they didn't want to call. Eight power plays - with some of them extremely questionable - over two periods is going to tire any team. Very frustrating.

we certainly got some questionable calls go our way.. esp the 5x3.. was weak. luckily for your team.. our pp went just 1 for 8, & wr could never get a lead. but your point still is valid to an extent, though the too many men (twice) .. thats just tough luck in opening gm with guys feeling the lines out.
On the calls.. hopefully they'll balance out rest of the season as they normally tend to. G'luck rest of your season, great fan base. see you in Boston nxt yr.

That was my biggest complaint that the game was being called like a playoff game and then all the sudden that changed when RIT took the lead. However 3 or 4 of the penalties that RIT took were just plan stupid/lazy. This was something that really hurt last year's team about as much as the injuries did. That is even more frustrating then the always frustrating officiating...

That being said it did go both ways, there was a big interference call missed on RIT that develop a good scoring chance off a rush in OT. Oh and Norrish had the stick slashed right out of his hands on the game tying goal... :mad:

Other than that I thought RIT played a great game, even though Northeastern built up a good size shot advantage, defensive coverage was good and Drackett made really all the saves he should. Two goals were perfect shots, and the third the power play just plan their power play was better than our Penalty Kills. I loved not only the goals but the tips that Brown was getting in the offensive zones. Need a little more from the top line other than Brown. Not sure how banged up Valenzuela was, Kerins had one good chance, I'd like to see him have more. This is the kind of team that they will have to play if they make the NCAAs, if they play smart and stay out of the box they can!

I guess we can add "Discipline" along with "Determined" and "Die On Empty". :). Still have Union and RPI coming to the GPC this weekend to work on that first "D". While Union will be a huge task especially since they are smarting from some tough early losses I think we can give the Engineers a good battle under the direction of new RPI and former Canisius coach Dave Smith.

In other news I see we had a commit today. Ryan Nicholson, 6'2, 185lbs defenseman, Stratford Warriors, GOJHL for 2019-2020.

But the only ticket shipping option I could find this year was to pick up the tickets at the RIT ticket office ... terribly inconvenient for those of us driving in from out of town on game day, and the sole reason I didn't attend this year.

Which you had to guess which one to go too.

University Arenas really need to understand how they effect the fan experience...
