My senior yr at Oswego 1987 we had 1 Canadian on our team,and we had a pretty good year, oh how times have changed.
Elmira’s top line had a combined 60 points in the first half. Ford and Powell with 21 each, and Cuce with 18.
Now, the Public schools got punished because ~30% of the recipients of a grant were athletes, while only ~15% of all students are athletes. For Neumann, it was something like 98% compared to 11%. Those numbers could lead one to conclude intentional circumvention of the rules. How they kept the 2009 National Championship (won with the grant in place) baffles me to this day.
- EC played an entire, 3-period game tonight, came out hitting hard, and skating even harder
- Outshot Buff State 40-20
- The top line is a special group ... could compete on most D1 squads. They've accumulated 73 points through 17 games!
- Buff State is also really improved over the past decade (have a larger non-US squad than most)
- EC should only schedule Top 15 teams OOC ... they seem to play up/down to the competition
- Most improved EC team during a season that I can remember. To be fair, they started out pretty abysmally.
- Sadly I won't be around to see the improvement for the remainder of the season. See you all next year.
EC 3 Naz 2
* It was warm at the Mac tonight!
* I had two Bud Lights.
* EC’s top line did all the scoring tonight as each player picked up a goal.
* Both goalies gave up juicy rebounds.
* Not sure how Gennaro let in Naz’ second goal.
* EC broke up a lot of Naz’ passes and shots tonight.
* It will take more to beat Utica tomorrow.
* More rumors about EC moving downtown for the 19-20 season.
Glad that we didn't attempt the trip. EC has UC's number, no doubt about that.
(Having the last change at home, using that 1st line certainly helps, but the final was the same at The Aud, with that situation reversed... I don't actually get it. Elmira looks a whole lot better than its record would indicate to me.)

Decent crowd to watch EC beat Utica 5-1. MacLean won’t play Friday as he got a DQ tonight. Utica fans were pretty classless tonight as they were yelling at the EC players? Big win for EC and they need to keep it up next weekend.
For the life of me, I cannot understand why, while on a PK, deep in our zone, our player, after s full two minute “rest” will come out of the box and head straight to the players bench, why??? Get the hell in there and get the puck cleared.
Also, I think Elmira is the only team that I’ve seen that do not put s player in front of the opposing group goalie during a P, once in a while you’ll see one go there but seldom do you see one “hang out” in front. All other teams seem to do this.
