    Not a shame from my point of view.

    This starts a week from today. Hope springs eternal that this will start a resurgence for the Engineers, but, sadly, I am not optimistic.

    My opinion, NU will have their hands full vs RPI. 2 week layover from the hockey, missing some pieces on the ice & on the bench.. advantage RPI and they can make the most of this. Regardless, will be a close contest (i feel), and decided by special teams. 4-3 Engineers, though this could go other way depending on how good our #2 goalie does; having played very little this season.

    Go Huskies, happy holidays all.

    I mean this with the utmost respect to RPI and their fans, but their stats are bad and their advanced stats are worse, and Huntsville is Huntsville. Stranger things have happened and hockey is hockey, but any thought of NU losing a game this weekend should be treated as a code red pairwise killing type of scenario.

    Meh, Cornell still made it to the tournament last year.

    Valid points that do indeed provide an opening for RPI (and UAH for that matter). But my view is that NU has enough firepower to more than make up for the probable loss of Tyler Madden up front and the all but certain loss of Cayden Primeau in goal. And although Ryan Ruck has had relatively few minutes of game action (all in garbage time), he's not exactly swiss cheese, having led NU to an improbable 2016 HEA tournament championship.

    And if NU can't win without having Jerry Keefe on the bench...(well, let's not even get into that.)

    UPDATE: Madden and Primeau both make the final roster.

    I can tell you one thing for sure. Huntsville is not going to go quietly. Whoever they play will get a good game and a run for their money.

    I don't doubt that for even a second. And there'll be no lack of motivation if Jake Theut starts against Northeastern.

    I was going to congratulate a Charger fan for sticking up for his team, but it appears that the person who entered the above post is actually a Michigan Tech fan.

    For RPI's part, Coach Dave Smith has been spending the Christmas break trying to convince anyone who would listen that his RPI team really isn't as bad as the unsightly won-lost record and perhaps even more unsightly statistics that they have compiled thus far this season.

    If they can actually win one or (I can dream, can't I?) both games this weekend, it might be a sign that the team has started to believe what he's telling them.

    Hey, they're doing better than last year. Of course that's not saying much, but hey, progress!

    I guess if we're making an impression among our WCHA peers, we're doing something right.

    We just had a tough-fought series with Tech a couple of weeks ago. UAH shut out Tech 1-0 (thanks Mark Sinclair) and then lost 2-1 in overtime (because you can't hold off the Huskies that much for that long).

    I do appreciate how hard the Chargers continue to work during what has been a frustrating season. We won 12 games last year -- most in eight years and a fifth straight improvement in win percentage -- and we knew there were questions about offense because Josh Kestner (24 goals) and Tyler Poulsen moving on, but I know I wasn't expecting this much of a dropoff.

    Goaltending and defense has kept us in a lot of games, but the offense just hasn't been there. We have eight one-goal losses, and six were 2-1 scores, plus one 1-0. If we can few more of those timely goals we can flip some of these close ones.

    Approx half way through the gm (and as i figured), RPI more than hanging with NU, up a goal on the Huskies.

    Huskies getting outshot through two periods by slim margin; Ruck having bit of trouble with the rebounds but otherwise seeing puck well given how much he has played this season.
    Pretty even gm through 2, with both sides exchanging chances. Will come down to who wants it more.

    last 7 odd mins of the 3rd.. NU had no puck possession. All RPI.. & it pays off in final min of regulation as Engineers get the extra attacker goal. No question who wanted it more there.

    3-2 NU in OT.
    Very impressed with RPIs never say die attitude & i did not agree with the early too many men call going against them in ot either. Thankfully gwg was scored 5x5, but NU really needs to find their skating legs again. Ryan Ruck played well. Nothing he could have done on the last min backhander (that is on the D).
    Thankfully Huskies find way to get it done yet again, in some what unorthodox fashion from Davies to Solow. Nice to salvage the w.
