Good article from Fanhouse on Chris Tanev (with mention of RIT):

RIT's a smaller school ...

I assume he doesn't mean smaller by number of students?

Once the women move up to Division 1, RIT will be able to offer scholarships for sports which, if they choose to do so, could further improve recruitment.

This is not true in the slightest. RIT would have to move to Division II in all sports (except hockey which could presumably remain DI) to start awarding scholarships.

I was told that once I school has two division 1 teams it can begin offering scholarships, at least for that sport.

Perhaps Corner Crew hearsay was inaccurate..

Kind of curious who you heard that from.

Anyway, Canisius, as much as many of us dislike them, did RIT a little favor in beating Robert Morris tonight.

I was more referring to their taunting of the corner crew prior to the game (that backup goalies **** eating grin every time he skated past us really stuck with me) and after goals. Not necessarily an on-ice rival, but still a team that I personally hate now.


If they are paying attention to the Corner Crew, then that means they aren't paying full attention to the game. It means that we are in their heads. It's part of the home ice advantage.

I didn't notice it anyways, so it couldn't have been blatent imo.

Looks like the forum rolled back some posts...

Anyway - tonight's game was one of the most complete games I've seen us play. We seemed to shake off our bad habit of constant passing but no shots, we had a successful power play, we had incredible PK, and I think the most glaring statistic is we only had 8 penalty minutes.

We could have easily ended it in regulation time if their goalie hadn't been on fire. We had a lot of great opportunities and set ups. If we can come out firing like this tomorrow I think we have a good chance of taking 4 points. With RMU and Niagara both losing already this weekend, we stand to take a commanding lead in the AHA.

All in all, tonight was an absolutely amazing game to go to and one of the most fun to watch of the year.

Or if a couple of post ringers had been a fraction of an inch more inside!

4 points this weekend would indeed be sweet and quite a statement in the standings. Let's hope for another good one with the Tigers coming out on top tomorrow.

(And congrats to the women on taking out Elmira!)

One thing I am willing to bet is that RIT gets most of their PIMs on teams that have been gooning it up and taking a lot of penalties themselvesd. Air Force does not do that, so RIT had a game with a reasonable amount of penalty minutes.

That game was one of the best I've seen in a long time for a conference game beffitting the best rivalry in the AHA.

What a play by Mitchell. He must like playing against Air Force :D

And thankfully they finally called a penalty when a Tiger got blasted from behind into the boards. It was the freaking 3rd time it happened in the game.

Hahahaha excellent.

Also, the save Madolora made at the end of the 2nd period was insane. (the post to post one-timer save). I think he's significantly better than DeMichael (who, I was admittedly less than impressed with - I thought the Denver game was the game of his life)....I think he'll be an NHL goalie. I hope he graduates.

I could use an extra ticket for tonight's game if anyone should happen to have an extra - please email me via the board. Thanks.

A few tidbits ...

RIT has cracked into the Pairwise (T30) by virtue of an RPI > 0.5. (NU and RMU have now dropped out.)

Interesting that Coach Serratore questioned the penalty in overtime (even just slightly ... see recap).

What's the deal with the pumping sticks overhead in two hands during the final goal celebration (which seemed just a bit over the top for a regular season game)? Was that some sort of "in your face" thing for something in a previous AFA game, or just the Tigers' new way. Seemed strange to me.

Parody of an old video game. NHL '95, I think I heard, in which after a goal, all the players just bunch up along the boards and robotically move their arms up and down.

It's going to be really hard to move up in the PWR too, because we only have the H2H tiebreaker on Cornell (and Robert Morris, should they get back into the PWR) and common opponents won't come out in our favor very often.

Still, good to see, and this shows that a stronger non-conference performance might be enough to get us close to an at-large bid. But it always seems to take a while for this team to get their legs under them.

Thanks. Glad to hear there is some amusing explanation. It had that look about it.

I believe a few teams have been using that goal celebration.

RIT can move up SOME by winning - but getting to where an At-Large would be in play is unlikely for reasons state below. But we have seen that doesn't matter come tournament time.

Nice of Niagara to lose last night.

Some interesting statistics, though. Of the teams over .500, Niagara has the worst goals for/goals against differential: +8. That would suggest there's been a lot of close, high-scoring games, and with the small differential, it's surprising they have the record they do. RIT has, by far, the largest differential: +27. With a stat like that, you'd expect we'd be dominating opponents. But it's earned us just one more win and four more ties, relative to Niagara.
