Limps? They are on life support. This season now ends on the road for certain but we have played no worse on the road than at home (not saying much)

You're the doctor. I guess that your triage evaluation is better than mine.

Maybe my presence will help matters. The last game I attended, we won. Granted, it was against AIC...

If this team was a patient-they would be given two weeks to live. But I have seen miracle cures and as much as doctors love to think they made the difference, some of them were just spontaneous. I have told many patients over the years that medicine is only 75% science. 20% is the art of medicine and the remaining 5% is just pure luck.

It takes something of a leap of faith to presume that RPI will be playing longer than Dr. D's prognosis of two weeks.

But, assuming that they somehow manage to survive the first round of the playoffs, I would expect that they would then move on to play the first seed in the second round.

Right now, that would be Union, which holds a two-point lead over Cornell. But those two teams will play this weekend.

If Union and Cornell finish the season tied in points, which one would be considered to be the first seed in the playoffs?

Depends why they end up tied. If Cornell to beats Union Friday and then they both have the same result on Saturday, Cornell would win based on the first tiebreaker (H2H) because they tied the first meeting. If Cornell/Union tie on Friday and then Cornell wins and Union loses on Saturday, I'm pretty sure that Union would have the tiebreaker on Cornell - Cornell has not done that well against the top 4, highlighted by the sweep by Colgate.

Hey, there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal backed into a corner....

Maybe with the thought of "nothing to lose" might liberate the troops and send them on a playoff run.....

Furthermore, maybe you'll meet either us or Cornell in the ECAC's and play the role of spoiler.......

As many folks on the RPI thread have mentioned before, the "Union" rule still has you guys in the thick of it.....

Let the team show to you they are done.....

Good luck next week...

Keith.

I try to be the optimist-I think if we somehow match up well with a team in the first round-we could survive for another weekend. Stranger things have happened in ECAC hockey in the past. As a 10th seed we wonce made it to the semifianls of the ECAC tournament in Boston Garden. Right now i just don't see naything like that even remotely possible. it looks like another long off season for us.

Next weekend should be a great ending for a season in which no game can be taken for granted. Can't wait.

We've played better on the road - far better.

Which is meaningless, since we're going to get bent over this weekend. Bring on the offseason.

RC-Totally agree that this coming weekend will be a rough one to take. The following weekend however may well be a bit more competitive if we draw a team that we match up better with. Not saying we will win in the first round-but we could make life at least a little miserable for someone. I would be very satisfied if we just get to play one extra weekend this year.

Gate was #12 last year and made it to the semi's. Anything is possible, why they play the games.

Limp is a good thing. That means rigor mortis hasn't set in yet, right? ;)

I'll be there for my one weekend of games per year, and it's timed quite nicely with the matchup for the Cleary on Friday and senior night and making sure we don't throw away the Cleary assuming we win on Friday on Saturday. And it'll be my first time in section O!

Be sure and show everyone your O face.

This season now ends on the road for certain I am hoping against hope that it at least ends at a neutral site!! :cool:
