    If our goaltending holds up. We lost Michael Lackey, our #1 goalie, to a torn ACL.

    Something clearly happened after the first period. RPI went from 5th gear to 4th and 3rd. Not exactly sure why. More turnovers, less hungry for the puck and lackadaisical skate from O zone back to the D zone. It wasn't Savory's best game but he can't be perfect 100% of the time. But when he has had the team's back for weeks, payback is warranted. That was anything but. When the best player on the ice is a guy returning from several weeks on the injured list, this is the result you should expect. I hope they rebound with a sense of urgency tonight. They need to show they can bounce back and to show they are ready for the playoffs. They won't be able to have an off night next weekend and expect to go very far.

    Agree completely. I think they were the best league team I've seen at HFH this season.

    Well, this ended up being pretty convenient. Hopefully we can play Yale closer than we have earlier in the year.

    Yes, RPI lost both playoff games to Yale in 2008, but those games were about as exciting as you could ask. Both of them went to overtime and the first one went to three overtimes.

    I'd rather see RPI go down scrapping like that than getting blown out in two straight.

    What I saw this weekend is a team that looks like it will be swept next weekend. Two steps forward, 12 steps back.
    Loyality means sticking with a thing in good and bad times. Not willing to do that, stay home, I got this.

    I tend to agree with this, I hope I'm wrong. They seem to have lost their way a bit after the game at Cornell. But even that night they were outshot badly. Not the same team that went toe to toe with QPac. Book seems to be out on Savory, high glove.

    Just a dismal atmosphere for senior night. No buzz in the building at all. I can't tell if the students are on break or not anymore.
    Place had luckily 1700 in attendance for the last home game. Unheard of 5 to 10 years ago. Just not sure where this program is headed after another 11th place finish.

    Not sure the time is correct. According to the schedule RPI should play the 4pm game but..... https://achahockey.org/view/achahocke...8-19-regionals

    Both teams agree it’s a 1pm game so I guess it is. Northeastern will play Norwich in the 2nd game. Both winners advance to Dallas......

And Marshall has another year. It would not have hurt anyone. If the players are expected to set good examples, the program should too.

    Perry had an injury that required surgery. He wasn't fit to play from that standpoint.

    Perry is not dressing because he had season ending surgery a while back.

    This is spot on. Graber absolutely dominated; size and skill. McElroy owns this; 3 years ago this program came in 5th and had 18 wins. He chose to make a change (which is his right) but has it gotten better. 2 back to back 11th places ( I think not). This is an inflection point for this storied program. Major recruiting defections, major roster defections and I really can't see what will change things in the recruiting pipeline.

    Three consecutive 11th places. Let's not forget why the sacking happened in the first place. I know you want to act like there was some sort of persecution, but from what I can tell, it's the Smith recruits that are stepping up while we're held back by the Appert ones, whether by perception or actual play.

    Also, 16 points is abnormally high for 11th. Sure, I don't think it would have ever gotten us home ice, but next year's the year of reckoning.

    We looked a heck of a lot better without Hayhurst out there. I don't know if it's him bringing it down (probably not), or the rest of the team relaxing their play in knowing he'll step up so they don't have to; most likely the latter. It goes back to the intermission speech during the Union home game, with Smith asking the boys how they wanted to play. Looks like we've failed to execute what was learned four months ago.
