    Woo meaningless power play goals.

    Too bad they couldn't get it done on special teams the 6 attempts it may have actually mattered. Flat out unimpressive weekend. Great, they scored some goals Friday night when the game was a blowout. Any time they got close Sacred Heart ran away again, and they never felt like they were going to get back into it tonight once the second one snuck in. They thoroughly deserved to be swept this weekend, and the home ice struggles are really getting tiresome to watch. And I don't want to hear about the Pollesini curse, because they were bad at the Ritter the last couple years of that building too.

    Obviously we are over rated. SHU schooled us.

    A shocking turn of events in Rochester this weekend, as Tigers' mysterious new HC revealed to have been Wayne Wilson the whole time.

    Hahahahaha. Harsh, but at least in regards to the power play, fair.

    No puck luck tonight. Was good to see so many RIT fans at Tate Rink though. For all the Atlantic Hockey teams visiting Army, RIT easily brings in the most fans. Nice to see all the orange. Also nice to talk to many familyís from down here that have sons and daughters at RIT. Walked out with an elder gentlemen who asked if I was an alumni, I said no just a fan of RIT Hockey. He said he was an alumnus. Nice to see a senior RIT alum rooting for his team. Not the result we wanted but letís hope for a win tomorrow. Happy Birthday Ed.

    Well we got the split and it looked like it would be a comfortable win but Army made it close at the end pulling it back to 3-2 after RIT went up 3-0 about mid way through the 3rd. My only issue with the game was the game was wrecked by the officiating. Let the players play. You keep throwing Tigers in the box and of course their opponent will eventually score (on their sixth power play). I sat next to an Army dad whose son plays D for Army and he also said that the tempo of the game was interrupted by all the ticky tack calls. Glad RIT won but it seemed as if the refs were trying to get Army back into the game. Atlantic Hockey needs to look at the disparity between the crews, sometimes itís like night and day.

    Kudos to all the RIT alum who showed up at the game and at the earlier alumni event at Thayer Hotel. I saw some nice pics on Twitter. It was also nice to see a contingent of RITís regular corner crew fans who made the long trip down to the Hudson Valley. It was great hearing them lead the RIT fans in a number of cheers. Great RIT spirit.

    Nice to see them get the split, although the lack of shots/offense reared its head a little bit over the last 40 minutes. Special teams (mostly the power play) continue to be a gigantic concern. They haven't scored a meaningful PP goal that had any chance of affecting the outcome of the game since the Air Force series, and special teams have cost them in their two ties as well as the loss to Army yesterday. They're -7 overall on special teams and +15 at even strength. This team could be really good if it gets better. Anyway, on to AIC next weekend. Big series. Hoping for nothing less than a split.

    I think that is the question the entire team and staff are asking as well.

    Personally, that 2nd game would have been a totally different game if RIT scored a goal or two and didn't let in that 2nd goal the way it went in. I thought both teams played a sub-par game in the first game.

    Frankly, their conference record flatters them, considering how poorly everyone but Drackett played in Colorado during that sweep. They seem to be a mediocre possession team with poor overall special teams and a goalie who can occasionally steal them a game but seems to have come back to Earth from a scorching start.

    Their next 3 conference weekends are against teams who are struggling in conference play. They need a minimum of 12 points out of these upcoming weekends, or they're going to be in the fight for home ice in the 1st round, not for the bye, which is obviously not where we thought this team would be a month ago.

    12 points in 6 games? What, 8 points in the last 9 games isn't good enough for you?

    Fight for home ice? This team's fight right now is with themselves to just play better hockey. Forget what the others in the conference are doing. This ship needs to be righted, and fast.
    Can't we all just get along?
    Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

    To all those discussing the PWR in October and the Rankings in early November...
    You were saying...?

    Can we enact a moratorium on speaking at all about PWR or Rankings before February? I'm not a superstitious person, but...

    “Barring scheduling snafus,” RIT will be playing Bowling Green in an outdoor game next season.
