The last weekend of the ECAC season.

Will Allen York be back in RPI's net?

Not very encouraging after throwing in a real stinker against Princeton. Going to need to play consistently better next weekend as both teams are too good for us to beat without our absolute A Game.

Hopefully, no one was suspended from the incident at the 20 minute mark.

RPI & Colgate are tied for 4th, SLU is a point behind in 5th.

It's Cap Dist v. Central NY and North Country v. Harvard & Dartmouth. Predictable??? :D

Incident at game's end??? What happened?

There was a brawl in front of the RPI bench.

11 penalties handed out according to the box score:

Princeton took 5 penalties,: 2 roughs, 1 cross-check, and Kleebaum took a rough and face mask (major)
RPI took 6: D'Amigo took a double minor (elbow, rough), Polacek and Helfrich each got a rough, and Bergin took a rough and a face mask (major)

No DQs handed out at the game though.

Major fight right at the RPI bench. 28 PIM handed out. But, only 2 majors Kleebaum and Bergin. Box score didn't have any game misconducts or disqualifications, so it'll all be on the league offices if suspensions are handed out.

This weekend is going to be huge. The two teams tied for 2nd and the teams tied for 4th face off on Friday night. Ties will not be good enough for the Capital District teams. I'm hoping to make the trip to Lynah. Hopefully the boys can put up a good performance that night.

To cross post from the RPI thread, the Engineers can wrap up 4th place and a first round bye on Friday with a win vs. Colgate and a SLU loss. The RPI-Colgate match-up would go to the 3rd tiebreaker, record vs. top 4 teams. RPI's record is 2-4-0, while Colgate's is 0-4-1. Thus, no matter the score of Saturday's Colgate-Union game, a win on Friday ensures the Engineers of the crucial tiebreaker against the Raiders.

Incident? Does this mean some RPI players will be suspended for Friday's game @ Colgate???

Luckily for Colgate, they've earned 3 pts or better when hosting the CD teams since at least the 2003-04 season. The winner of Friday's matchup will have the inside track at 4th place and the bye.

Fortunately for Union, they've locked up a top-3 finish, so their game at Starr Rink won't have any major playoff implications, especially since their fans view Colgate's home ice as some sort of "mausoleum" or "temple of doom" or "palace of death" ...

In case anyone was wondering if the RPI/Colgate game is important, I direct your attention to http://www.playoffstatus.com/ecachockey/rensselaermig.html

On the importance scale of 0-100, the game is listed as "108". :D

It's a "114" if you check the ECAC MIG page (http://www.playoffstatus.com/ecachockey/ecacmig.html).

Number 53 on the list of reasons why I don't trust playoffstatus.com

And the loser is eliminated from getting a bye.

3 points won't be good enough for Colgate (or RPI for that matter) if SLU sweeps Dart/Harv at home, which I expect them to do.

One openly wonders what that has to do with this season.

york could have played last weekend but the coaches wouldnt let him... they said playoffs were more important.

lets just hope we still pull out the bye.

SLU is winless in 7 games. Yes they are at home but it would not surprise me if Harvard or DC knocked them off in one of the games.

Aside from the RPI game and RIT, all of Colgate's wins are against teams that are below 500. If York were 100% healthy, I would predict a solid win on the order of 4-1 or so. I still see an RPI win and 4th place finish regardless of what happens in Ithaca.

If I had my choice, I think I would take a 5th place finish with 'Gate finishing 4th though. Our team is young and a playoff series at home against #12 before a best of 3 in Starr is just as desirable as sitting out the 1st round and then playing a playoff tested 5th place team (assuming no upsets of course). We seem to play better on the road anyhow.

SLU is winless in their last six games...including getting waxed at home by Q 5-0.

I'd take the bye any day of the week. As you said it gives York a week to rehab the ankle and gives the coaches time to address the PP which was, to say the least, tough to watch Sat. night...including 0-2 with a 2 man adv.

Jerry D. took exception to P'ton trying to run up the score by continuing to pressure and shoot on Harkenrider with less than 1 min. to go . Jerry sent a message and leveled the Princeton shooter with an elbow in front of the RPI bench...

It was not a "brawl" -- in that the benches did not clear.

I know. But I still think they'll win both games this weekend. And it will be a tall order for either Colgate or RPI to win 2 games.
