Big Doings Out West

Well- for a team picked close to last in the weak ECAC, RPI has certainly been turning heads so far. After earning a tie with national power BU, they spilt a weekend series with DU winning 2-1 and losing 5-1.

I think its safe to say that Kirk is really leading this team on and off the ice.

But I have to ask, what is with all of the penalities? Is it that RPI is getting outplayed and is resulting in clutching and grabbing? Also, RPI is a young team but sooner or later they have to learn how to close out a game. They lead in the BU game and kept it close for 2 periods in the second DU game but then let up several goals in the third period.

Overall, I have to say I am very impressed by RPI's 1-1-1 start. If they play this well against nationally ranked competition, they will fare very well in the ECAC's.

I will be at the Governor's Cup this weekend and hope to see all of you Red and White supporters out!

Here is a recap of the 2-1 game.
