Before the BC onslaught tonight it must be said that this past weekend the Crimson played four relatively strong consecutive periods against two ranked teams, starting in the third against Colgate, where they reversed the first period SOG disparity, and throughout the Cornell game. Still too many errant passes, still too many low probability shots, still too many PK “clears” to the blue line, but also still a short bench playing two pretty intense games. I think Stone pulled Larcom in the Cornell game not so much for the goals allowed (hard to tell with streaming, especially with no replay) as for the opportunity to see the freshman Dutton under pressure, and she looked just fine. There is a program here.
Speaking of streaming, the Colgate guy took the familiar play-by-play approach known as TALK ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE ICE, ESPECIALLY PENALTIES to new heights. The Cornell guy, on the other hand, was excellent, even knowing the names of the opposition players! Despite the Ivy League blowing its own horn during every break (just who do they think is watching these games?) the Ivy Digital Network does seem to be making some progress.
On to BC!
