Regarding your point about making the RIT defense be mobile, I had a very similar thought while watching the game. It seems like they get a little flat-footed with the puck in their own zone at times. When teams take away their first option to move the puck, they get caught standing still, and it becomes a lot easier to hunt a puck carrier who is standing still.
Obviously a minor nit-pick after an impressive showing - winning when Drackett is mortal is going to be important, he can't stand on his head every night. This team has some offensive talent throughout the lineup if they can consistently clear their own zone with momentum.
Heck, add being able to win while being -2 on special teams to the good.
