Two of the lowest ranked D-I teams face off on Tuesday.

Discuss. ;)

Hopefully we can add to our offensive stats a bit so they don't look so horribly bad. We will need to play the kind of offense we showed against dartmouth and not what we did against Harvard. Go Red!!!

As SA says, think process, not results. I saw Friday's game, not tonight's. I saw a lot of good things that happened. And after reading the game thread later, other posters saw some of the same things... it was that 10/15 minute segment of the second period that saw Dartmouth put up a three spot. Saturday's game, despite being outshot by a wide margin, resulted in a tie. There must have been some good process things tonight... and consider that Harvard had that strong tie w Union on Friday. The UC posters were all bemoaning how 'they gave a point away to H.' Do you supposed H earned that point, being down two in the third?

I don't think we gave away a point tonight, I think we earned a point against a team that so badly outshot us. On Friday, some good process things happened. On Saturday, we faced some adversity and earned a point. Results following process...

Let's build on this for AIC on Tuesday. (They are who's next... let's do it.)

I guess it could be worse... you could have scheduled 2 games against AIC.

This is a total trap game for AIC :) Diebold should get the start in net and with all due respect to AIC, maybe we see some of the lesser used players like Smith and Burgdoerfer get some ice time in the last NC game before the stretch run of ECAC play. Put Rabbani out there and let him check the night away on anything wearing AIC colors. Lets go Red.

After coming off what should have been considered a lackluster weekend, this year it is an improved weekend.
We cannot lose to AIC.
That would set us back to square one, and we don't have time to go back there.
We did a lot of things right this weekend, and we need to continue to move forward. AIC is not going to lay down. They look at our record and see a team that they have a chance against.
We better come out like we did against Harvard and put them away early. And then continue the pressure.
I don't like games like this, because they are a no win situation. Unless we totally blow them away (and I don't see that happening), we can't win.
I would definitely like to be going back to a conference game.

It will be interesting to see how AIC comes out. They have not played in a month, and are coming off very rough games against Air Force, and a hot goalie at RIT. They will be game, but the question is going to be. Can they put the puck in the back of the net, and can they play a good penalty kill because I see RPI's PP as a definite advantage.

Haven't heard that much this season. :)

Heck, AIC has a better PP% than us! :eek:

If anything's going to help on special teams, it'd be our 15th-in-the-nation penalty kill.

Maybe I interpreted CornwallAce's comment incorrectly. He may have meant that RPI's powerplay is a definite advantage for AIC. :)

It's a good thing you majored in math, because if you were an English major this would be unaccetaple.

Might want to also fix the fact that this game was played last year. ;)

Given it's a thread title, it may be too late for that one. :(

Does anyone else notice that SA plays his favorites no matter? They can make mistakes (dont get me wrong, no one is perfect) or have an awful game, (again no one is perfect). But in SA mind, some players are going to play regardless and others have to walk a tight rope. Afraid to make mistake, or they may not play.
This could be one of the reason the team isnt jellying as well as it could jell. You lose the team's respect when the rules are not the same for everyone.

Also, we are getting out muscled and not winning battles. Not going to name any players, but when you have a line of what you think are 3 scorers (and obviously they are not since we cant win a game), then maybe we need to make some changes. Shake things up. Let's beat AIC and Union this week.

I said it once and I will say it again. Put a scorer, a playmaker and a physical player on the same line. Let them work the corners, dig out pucks, make passes and hopeful score.
What do we have to lose. (Besides another game). The superstar routine is getting old and not working. Lets try the team approach.
Good luck.
