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. 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 agree. It wasn't even close. Nice move on the winning SO shot.

Wow that was a nice move. Did you see the one on ESPN the other day with the 9 year old in Boston?

Believe he's already got a verbal to UNH.

About 100 times. Takes a lot of practice to pick it up off the ice like that. Pretty impressive that a 9 year old can do it.

I'm willing to bet that the folks in Orono are keeping very close tabs on him.

Pretty impressive that he spent the time learning hoiw to do it. I was, however, more impressed with his skating ability for his age. I will be interested in learning if we ever hear about him again.


Edit: His father played one year at Maine http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=41781.

I agree with your skating point. I would have liked to see his other shootout attempts as they were probably more relevant to what actually happens in a game. I missed the mini one-on-one segment of that B's telecast though.

Now you know why I said Orono.

Agreed - and it looked like Greenham realized he was heading backwards and specifically stuck his arm out to make sure his hand didn't cross the line. Quick thinking on his part, considering he was about 75% inside the goal when he stopped sliding.

He's already committed to BC -- class of 2020....:D

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 will further clarify my personal sentiments that ANY day is a good day for ice cream...

PS: Time to put the bike away Ralph ! :p

It's supposed to reach the mid-70's on Wednesday and Thursday down here. :)

Pardon the interruption, but I'm here to share this breaking news. I hope our boys in red heed the health director's warnings! Sounds serious...

I can't take credit for it though. It was brought to my attention through a facebook friend (sorry!). I wouldn't have actually caught it myself because I don't watch SNL. Not that this skit is one of their more hilarious (to put it lightly).

This weekend should prove to be a good test for the fans because if there's any signs of struggle, the worrywarts will be out fast and furious.

I don't expect there to be any problems, but if RPI falls into old habits of playing to the opponents skill level... Then it may be time for a Sunday bag skate.

I worry all season long. These are 2 games we could and should win. But this team is very young and anything could happen. I would like to see us show more scoring touch than the one goal we garnered in Alaska for the weekend.

I expect that Sacred Heart and AIC will do a bit of trapping to slow things down and clog up the neutral zone. AIC certainly did that a couple years ago. That said, these teams aren't as big as UPEI (who also did this) and I don't expect them to be as fast as RPI either.

Other thing to remember here, for Sacred Heart this will be their first game of the year. They lost an exhibition warm up to St. Thomas (Quebec) 5-3 back on October 4th. For AIC, they get to warm up against Union on Friday night and about all the heads up scouting we'll see from them will be in the box score later Friday night.

I believe the B's website said the broadcasts of the 1 on 1 tourney start at the end of this month. So I don't think any of it has actually aired, this just got put on the B's website because of how impressive it was.

The forwards are young, but we can't see that the D is still young.

I'm glad that I'll get the chance to see the entire shootout. I assume that he made this move on his 3rd attempt having already clinched the win. If not, given the 5% success rate he mentioned, his coach would not have been happy - even if it is just for fun.
