Hopefully WRPI decides to actually show up for this.

Yale attracted considerable attention with last weekend's sweep in the North Country, getting 45 points in the latest USCHO poll after, IIRC, getting zero in the previous poll. They're not in the top 20 yet, but they will be a very tough nut for RPI to crack on Friday and probably won't be too easy for Union on Saturday.

Interestingly, Clarkson improved from 17th to 16th in the poll despite losing to Yale.

Brown is having a tough season, so RPI's chances might be looking a little better on Saturday night than on Friday. The Bears have won only one game so far, that one against Dartmouth. Still, for some reason, RPI always seems to meet them on a night when they have their act together.

It's frustrating, as a Brown fan, because the team competes well and often controls the pace of play. They just can't score. I won't be surprised if we outshoot either opponent this weekend but lose both games by a goal or two. It's a young team, however, so maybe there are good things to come.

It is also frustrating as an RPI fan.

We can relate to that problem, perhaps a 0-0 tie. :rolleyes:
