    Re: Colgate @ RPI 1/11/20

    We are now in a 3-way tie for 4th with Colgate and Harvard. Of course, the bad news is that both of those teams have played 3 less games.
    The more interesting stat is that we now have 9 ECAC games left to play and only 3 of them are at home. Good thing they have a decent record on the road...

    We can test the 'decent road record' hypothesis this weekend with games at Brown and Yale. We're building a case for home ice... this will be a big weekend.

    PS. Very ugly finish to Harvard-Yale game at MSG tonight. May be a suspension...

    Our goal should be a first round bye, not home ice. Home ice should be the bare minimum. We have seen what this team is capable of, and they should have no issues getting home ice. First round bye will be a challenge for sure, but it's doable.

    If all things were equal, I would agree with that. However, because most of the teams that we are tied with or are ahead of us still have games in hand, we are not in control of that situation.
    With most of the rest of the schedule on the road, I would be happy to finish at .500 and see where that puts us.
    Colgate was no pushover. They came out in the second period and pushed hard. Sometimes your goalie has to be your best player and that is what we got tonight.
    Enjoy the win.

    I agree with that. A bye would be a stretch. Home ice and a .500 record should be the goal -- and then 4 more wins to get a trip to LP.

    OTOH, the team should still be shooting for a bye which I think is what sezenack meant.

    Ralph, Both the team and the fans should be rooting to win every game (one game at time) Reality be ****ed.
    But the truth is that there are too many teams with too many games in hand to get us to a bye. But lets win all of our games and see how that plays out.

    I can't believe that the above word got edited.

    If you can't believe that, just think what would happen if we ever scheduled and exhibition game against Ni****ing University.

    About 20 years ago, there was a hockey board which bleeped out pass and assist because of a certain three letters, so it could be worse.

    Of course we should be rooting for us to win every game, but I do feel, as you wrote, that a bye would be a stretch.
