Agree with Iowa on the team, not sure what to say other than having been to the Whale a number of times I chose to skip the hour's drive north & didn't bother checking the score until this morning. I see the lax team with their new coach is 2-0...
Mitch Benson in goal again tonight vs. Brown.
Wow. I don’t know what to say...
I don’t think I have seen Colgate come out of the box stronger than they did tonight.
Brown 11, Colgate 9, SOG after one.
Colgate 2, Brown 1, score after one.
We got the lead back seconds after Brown’s goal.
Mitch had a great period, being totally screened on their goal.
Colgate 3, Brown 2, score after two.
Not sure SOG (too excited), but I think Brown still leads.
Brown scores with 5-3 man-advantage, and we get the lead right back (scoring late in the period).
Again, not sure what transpired after loss to Yale, but something changed. Having said that, instead of continuing to be aggressive in the third, I expect that we will just dump the puck in a defensive shell. Go ‘Gate.
Brown 36, Colgate 25, SOG after three.
Colgate 2, Brown 2, score after three.
Headed to OT. They scored after pulling their goalie.
Three shots for each in OT.
3-3 tie at Brown.
I made the trip to Providence last night. It was only the 2nd game I've been to this season - I had truly missed the college hockey atmosphere and it was on display last night. Two pep bands in attendance, and a larger turnout than I've usually seen at Meehan Auditorium, with a good handful of 'Gate fans in attendance. While watching the warmups, I noticed on the Colgate bench some strips of masking tape with the words "confident", "optimistic", "relentless", and "energy". This team isn't quitting. And it answered each of Brown's first two goals. Sadly they scored with the extra attacker (and rather quickly, too - they pulled the goalie with a little over 2 minutes to go then scored the EAG 20 seconds later), and we had to settle for the tie. But maybe they'll surprise us in the playoffs. Time will tell.
And hey - the team is undefeated this season when I make it to a game in person. I can't make it to the remaining regular season games but if they draw a New England opponent in the playoffs, I'll be there.
Hard to give away a point when the offense hit the 3-goal mark. On the bright side, we're still unbeaten in OT this year (2-0-3), so that's something.
Interesting that the band made the weekend trip, but good to see them. A few more home games would be good as well.
Some really good stretches, but also times where they cannot get out of their own end (like much of the 3rd period last night). Have really only been able to watch Saturday games the last couple of weeks, but that is the most-obvious pattern.

Let's Go 'Gate!
Friends that know me know that I like to whoop-n-holler for ‘my teams’ at college hockey games. I never disparage opposing players, never crinkle newspapers nor turn my back to the ice, never yell ‘Sieve, Sieve, Sieve,’ never argue about officials’ calls, but I do like to applaud ‘my team.’ However, it’s tough to whoop-n-holler when my team goes scoreless for 60 minutes at a time, repeatedly. So, I had fun last night. Thanks, ‘Gate. And to the Brown fans around me... I will be back.

Colgate weekend recap from Yale and Brown...

All is quiet here. Any comments on the upcoming Capital District series? Bump.
COLGATE HOCKEY:"Is this the year?"
ColSkate65,I will be at both home games this weekend, after first heading to Amherst, Mass., tomorrow to see UConn at PWR #1 UMass. My only prediction for the games in Hamilton is that our captain will more than likely try to lead the team from the safety of the penalty box. To be fair, though, he does seem to prefer to do it on the road, like at Brown, where the two-minute view is across the pond from the bench.
Iowa, I’ll be at the RPI game on Saturday. What section is your seat so I can say hello? I’m sorry I missed you at Union a few weeks ago.
Anyone else going on Saturday? It will most likely be the last home game this year and I have a pretty good feeling we’ll win it.
I'll be there, Mike. See you then. GO 'GATE!!
Magoo, section 9, row 6, seat 9. Looking forward to it.
Between pre-game warm-up and opening face-off is best time to catch me in my seat. Fat balding geeky geezer with cane wearing ‘Gate jersey. That should narrow the field. Thanks.
I'll be there for both games, though the biggest game of the weekend is the 2 PM Saturday hoops tilt vs. Navy where we're playing for a top tournament seed. Talk about a sentence I never thought I'd write!
