Does anyone remember in which year the Fulton's Folly game vs. Cornell occurred?

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.

We did seem to go into the "prevent defense" in the 3rd period being outshot 18-2. I didn't care for that. York had a real good game, and the defense may have played its best game of the season.

Searching around a little bit, found a post on ELF about it (one of yours actually :p) and a box score that looks like it confirms. 3/1/02.

RPI played a solid game, and I for one was impressed by them. They were aggressive and fast, I liked their style of play. Although, they did sit back big time in the third period. I was at the game, and I wouldn't blame the ref, RPI took some stupid penalties. It was that plain and simple. Fun game to watch though!

Thanks for the insight.

As far as the stupid penalties, thats commonpalce around here. Has been for a few seasons now. Its nice to hear someone outside of the RPI circle say that rather than blame it on hometown refs.

Indeed. Saw several people complain about the call on Pirri that made the penalties matching late in the third, for example. From my look on B2, Pirri's hit after the whistle was arguably worse than the original hit that sparked the penalty against Alaska. That's a downright stupid penalty for us to take, and most likely cost us the win.

Not to say the refs were perfect either. There was a HUGE hold by Alaska in OT that prevented a scoring chance (not necessarily a breakaway, but a chance nonetheless). Alaska player threw our guy to the ice with both hands not 5 feet away from the ref, who watched it happen without so much as flinching. That kind of wishy-washy, pick-and-choose officiating gets me riled up every time. I don't care if it's 5:00 of the first in an exhibition or overtime of the national championship, it's a clear cut penalty and needs to be called.

The box score tells the story though. Outshot 18-2 in the third we were clearly trying to hold on for dear life. And when you get outworked that bad in a period, you're going to take stupid penalties. Credit to RPI for scoring early and putting good pressure on through the first two periods. There just wasn't enough left in the tanks to hold it up through the late game penalties.

Team's still 1-0 in games I hadn't written off before the season started. I'm not willing to judge this team on the larger ice surfaces. They don't need to throttle SHU and AIC next weekend but they do need to win and stay out of trouble.

Herpes! Herpes! Stay out of the box!

What good is being a hockey fan if you can't blame the refs?;)

I look for the team to put on an offensive show next weekend. The freshmen have had a couple of games under their belts they have looked good. Now we have to finish some of those plays.
Neither opponent has played a game that counts yet, so they are not in game shape. a perfect opportunity to score some goals.
Of course we tend to play to our opponents level.
I hope we put that to rest this year.

I thought RPI overall looked pretty good, definitely better than they looked against UAA. Might have just been some jet lag for that game. York made some really nice saves, and the defense did a good job holding off Alaska's newfound offense. At least I'm hoping that's what it was, and not that we're slipping back into our old ways :p

Peronally I thought the reffing was kind of bizarre the whole weekend. Missed and head-scratching calls at both ends of the ice for all four games. As far as Alaska getting the better end of it, I think that may have more to do with their playing style than home-cooking. Lets them get away with a few that probably should be called, less likely to get called on the iffy ones, and just not have as many valid penalties in the first place. Last season they were in something like the bottom 3 nationally in PIM/game, you don't get that kind of a stat just from home-cooking.

Good luck for the rest of the season!

Edit: Delete " few seasons" and insert "decade"...:mad:

FWIW -- I think my record is clear on my reporting of RPI taking bone-headed penalties. :mad:

Sounds like the ECAC officials made the trip to AK...:D

The article incorrectly states that is York is a junior. Interestingly, AF is now 13-13 on the PK in the early going this season

I would have, but Bear Trapp graduated last year.

I won't miss him...:D His GWG in OT added one or two nails to Fridge's coffin.

I was too tired last night to go back 10 years. I saw enough evidence going back the past 3 seasons....:(

This link to video highlights of the UA_ game was posted on the tourney thread http://www.youtube.com/user/salchaboy#p/a/0/nH3ZhxlmQCk. Two thirds of it is on the shootout.

I think that someone posted that it looked like the UA_ goalie's glove with the puck went over the goal line on Helfrich's shootout shot. It doesn't look like it to me.

I had ice cream on Saturday. It still tasted good despite the unseasonably low temperature, high winds, and soaking rain. That doesn't contradict your statement, but it had to be said. :p

I dont see that either. On the winning shootout goal though it did look like York let the kid stick handle in too deeply into the crease without poke checking him. But I'm not a goalie so what do I know:confused:
