    2019 ECAC Championship Weekend in Lake Placid

    #2 Cornell will take on #8 Brown in the early semifinal, while #3 Clarkson will play #4 Harvard in the late semifinal..

    Clarkson and Harvard will play a rematch of last years late semifinal which was fast and furious.

    The whole thing feels very much like 2018. Cornell the top seed taking on an unheralded Ivy who has had a great second half and pulled a big upset sweep in their QF. Clarkson and Harvard the 2/3 matchup.

    Hope it goes differently this time. :-)

    Yep that was just being discussed while a group of us watched the Cornell/Union game over some corned beef/cabbage and carrot cake..

    Clarkson is kind of trending upward coming into Lake Placid this year, unlike last year where from February and March on they kind of limped into town in a sense..And every weekend I can't help but think, just imagine if Grant Cooper didn't have another season ending injury early in the year, ****.. Haven't seen Brown in live action since early in the year but obviously not the same team that got throttled in Potsdam. Really looking forward to watching that early semifinal..when Harvard and Clarkson get together, pucks go in nets.. the last 5 meetings dating back to last season have gone 6-6, 5-2, 5-4, 4-3, 5-3, the home team or higher seed winning all 4, and the tie at Cheel.. I don't expect any different on the big sheet.

It would be delightful to watch the rest of the hockey community, in particular the NCHC, go ballistic if that ever happened.

    Best we can hope for is an all-ECAC F4 in Buffalo.

    With due respects to the Ivies which I am proud to be a part of, I think Clarkson has the best set of D men when considering their structure. With that, I think Clarkson will take home the Whitelaw. Make no mistakes I am rooting for the Ivies!

    If it's Clarkson - Cornell we play it on the other rink for old times sake?

    Re: 2019 ECAC Championship Weekend in Lake Placid

    Anyone know if the schools get to sell tickets in a certain section, or do you just have to buy through the ECAC and hope youíre not surrounded by people wearing the other teamís colors? Havenít seen anything on the Brown website yet.

    Also, will they eventually sell individual game tickets online or just the all-session? I likely wonít be able to make the Friday games, but if Brown wins I want to head up for the championship Saturday.

    Thanks for any help from those whoíve been through it before. I havenít had the need to look into ticketing since Atlantic City, so itís been a while!

    Schools do get tickets for their fans to sit together, usually in the four corners. You can buy better tickets between the bluelines etc from the arena but you sit with the general public there. Take your pick, better to be with your school's fans I would think.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    When I made the trip to Lake Placid in 2014 and 2015, I bought my tickets at the door and requested a section with other Colgate fans. If you do make the trip up there, enjoy!!!!! The drive up is magnificently beautiful and so is the village!

    The restaurants in town have gone way downhill, but the village is magnificent. The hotels double their prices for the weekend also.

    Most hotels insist you stay both Fri and Sat nights, BUT, Saturday night many of the fans go home,
    the ones that lost the games Friday night, so some rooms may open up. Thought that would be helpful to you KDIFF77 since you may go for just Saturday night.

    Thanks for the tips! Hoping I can find a cheap last-minute hotel or Airbnb for Saturday night. Iíve been to Lake Placid, but it was for a youth hockey tournament I played in when I was 10, so Iíd love to check it out again. If I hadnít started a new job last Monday, Iíd probably take Friday off and head up there for the semis, but that doesnít seem prudent given the circumstances.

    In case anyone was thinking of a spot to drop in on...As far as in town for lunch spots, Lisa G's is good. Delta Blue, Players, or Black Bear Rest. are all fine lunch spots as well for a burger/sandwich and a beer type deal.. Smoke Signals will not disappoint for dinner(if you like smoked meat).. It opens at 4, no reservations, and can be very hard to get into as it is extremely popular, for good reason. The food is incredible. From smoked bbq pork nachos, smoked trout dip, smoked Reuben sandwiches, and their signature brisket dinner, which I get everytime.. The Cabin Grill and The Upstairs Grill are both places I would return to for dinner, as well.. Oh and I almost forgot, we always stop into The Cottage for a bloody mary, always! It's usually always crowded in their, but it's a tradition.. I have the advantage of being about an hour and twenty minutes away, so I go up somewhat regularly.

    Just looking at the weather, gonna be freezing or below for most of the weekend with 1-3" of snow predicted for Friday. Saturday and Sunday look sunny, cold and windy. When I went up a couple of years ago, I did the bobsled run. One of the funnest experiences in my life. I may try skeleton this time around. Reservations highly recommended. https://www.whiteface.com/activities/bobsled-experience

    If the Hockey East, NCHC, and WCHA finish with favorites winning, and Brown beats Harvard in the final, I think ECAC has 5 in. Wouldn't that be something?

    PWR has Cornell in even if they lose to Brown, they drop to #14 with AIC and Brown getting #15 and #16, if Brown wins Saturday night also.
