Visiting the Capital District: the only form of Capital Punishment I support.

Colgate won't be favored in either of its games against the Capital District duo, but they did get that 13.2 pound gorilla off its back.

Congrats to 'gate getting their first league win, vs Clarkson, no less! Why not bring some Colgate fans to HFH this Friday? You should be able to get tickets...

13.2 pounds? That's pretty light.

13 losses and 2 ties before getting a league win. I counted each loss as a pound and added .2 for the draws.

Colgate will be coming in very happy with themselves having won their last game.
I would like to point out, that our record overall is 18-6-4. (very nice). Our record on Friday night is 6-5-2.
We had better be ready for Colgate.

I hope so too. Can't look forward to Cornell. Speaking of Cornell, they are a hot team as of late. I'm sure the boys want some revange of the ugly game they had at Ithaca. Should be a good game, and a good crowd at the HFH.

Gotta get to Colgate early to squash any form of motivation/momentum they may be bringing in after winning its first league game. A quick goal or physical play to set the tone for the game is a must. If the boys get caught looking ahead to Cornell, it could be a very long night. York in net or do we let Bryce take the reigns for this game and make sure York is 100% for the next night and so on?

The Big Red have to be a scary team to play coming into the finishing straight here. 7-1-2 in their last 10 with a blowout over RPI, a fluky (for Dartmouth not Cornell) road tie at Thompson and a 2-1 road victory at Hobey. Not a team I'd want to play right now.

Add to that our long time propensity for playing to the level of the competition. We have a knack for making most games nail biters. I just hope we go into this game healthy. Colgate's record is extremely deceptive. They gave us everything we could handle in the last meeting and we were fortunate to come out with a win. Our record against them the last 10 years is not sterling either. We will need to play at a high level for the entire 60 minutes. Working in our favor, however, is that we do seem to be a much better team at HFH than on the road.

Strategy against Colgate: Pretend like it's the Governor's Cup. :D

Have we even had a game yet where we've actually played 60 minutes?

The Brown victory on the road was quite convincing, as were both Dartmouth victories (especially the one at HFH).

As a Colgate fan, this is the way I see my team:

Colgate is a team that plays hard and will not make a game a cakewalk to any team not named St. Lawrence, but that just simply does not know or has forgotten how to win.

After Saturday, maybe the lost memories of how they got to 12 ECAC wins last year is returning. But then again, we've owned Clarkson ever since the QF series. 6-0-2 since we lost game 1.

Given how good RPI and Union are this year, however, I don't have much hope for this weekend. I'd be happy with a point. Especially with how terrible we've been at Messachilles as of late. That rink's becoming just like Appleton and Lynah for us.

I recall a few in 1985 and a couple up in Lake Placid at the end of 1995;)

Here's wishing you all the luck in the world-in Schenectady. And as much trouble as possible in Troy.;)

Just got a phone call from (presumably) the HFH box office reminding me that Saturday's game has a 3:30pm start instead of the 7pm start.

They called all the ticket holders? :eek:
