Always some things to work on for keepers. Yorkie's glove work and key saves more than made up for the few rebounds. Let's not forget that he saw 36 or so shots. I am happy to see that he is controlling his side to side movements much better... last year he occasionally slid right past the pipe and out of position. We are definitely seeing some growth in his game.

Good point agree to the max my point was that the defense was giving the shot letting York make the save and D to their credit was taking care of business in front of the net. I think that was lacking before. The obvious that we took from the UNH game was the puck control in the offensive end absolutely great transition in the neutral zone. But them D guys been in the weight room. They were pushing people around. Am I wrong??

UNH was playing seven freshmen, three good defensmen and their number one goaltender. Their scouting report said shoot low on RPI's goal? Among other things,UNH did not have the size and or the experience to go to the net effectively or to stop red from doing so on their end. There were 11 scoring chances among the 36 shots on reds goal of which seven resulted in actual quality shots on goal, three were open 12-15 footers (one went in). Allen made four beautiful saves that made me smile ,two of which resulted from a great read and the excellent position that followed.The other two were weak side open net reaction plays with the rigtht leg. As we discussed before this was not the 2008-09 UNH team. There were many positives in the game for RED in this very early pre season game. I would expect them to win more games this year and have a more effective pp, but that is just about as optimistic as i can or will get right now. Average big, physical, well coached teams that go to the net and have good netminders will give them trouble but then again those types of teams would give any ecac team a problem .(alaska is that type of team) Allen has great potential and is getting better quickly but he needs to continue to work hard on selected items that i need not reference here.They finally counted sog correctly at a home game. First time in four years. They must have changed personnel.This is all just my opinion .I was at the game.

I would add that York made several saves on shots he never saw... due to just having excellent position and staying big in the net.

Couldn't help but notice that UMass knocked off #2 BU last night. Gee, it sure is too bad we scheduled such soft teams for OC schedule...:D :D

So you're saying, at this rate, AIC will be nationally ranked when we play them? :P

RPI football fell into a deep hole early and just could not make up the difference loosing 35-30 to Susquehanna. It appears RPI has enough offense to score against anyone but their defense cant seem to stop anyone either. Their overall record falls to 3-2 and they are 1-2 in the Liberty League.

That should be a good sign for the hockey team. :)

Only thing left for the oblong sphereoid team this year is to see if the Seniors can become the first class to never lose to #26 Union during their careers. Ain't holding my breath.

My point waaaaaay back then is the same as it is now. UMass is a good hockey team - which a clown or two here took exception to.

I don't doubt it at all. That's why the games are played. I had to talk a few pessimists into actually having faith when it comes to the UNH game, and look what happened.

In any case, we put up a good showing against UAF, and we may be able to salvage a vote or two for the polls.

The clowns are confused here wicked . The conversation was, in the beginning, a polite discussion long ago regarding the difficulty of the OC schedule this year vrs the last two. The clowns were silly enough to note that the schedule appeared to be a bit easier this year than the last two relating to the number of top 15 ranked teams on the OC list. That was the point. Nobody said Umass was a bad team Wicked, just that at the beginning of the season they did not look like a top 15 team, nor were they ranked as one........(Umass is always a good team when they play an ECAC team.) You could not admit that the the schedule was a bit easier because you had already consumed your Cool Aid that day .Look at the rankigs now, next week or in a month and you will see two to four top 15 teams on it, not six or seven. FYI UNH tied Miami. That does not make them a top 15 team yet, until they get ranked and even if they are, it is still just 2-4 top 15 teams on the OC schedule. My bet is 3, which is what i said a month ago.

I am not going to start a separate thread for the SHU and AIC games. There doesn't seem to be enough interest on USCHO for the other teams to make it worthwhile. If someone else feels there is, please start a thread.

Getting a tie against UA in spite of all the hlep the refs gave them is a good sign. This team will be fun to follow this year. Not quite up with the big boys but on any given night they could be a handful for most teams. That is of course if the refs give them the chance to play.
