This Weekend's Contests

Summaries by Brian Sullivan by USCHO:

Rensselaer @ Army
The Engineers put on a good show at Minnesota, regardless of the results. This weekend, the effort should be rewarded on the scoreboard. 4-1 RPI.

Sacred Heart @ Rensselaer
The Engineers hit Houston once more, hosting Sacred Heart and looking for the four-point weekend. SHU is no pushover, and RPI will have its hands full ... but the win is still there for the taking, 5-3.

He's right, this should be a 4 point weekend. Hopefully, RPI can stay out of the box and my boy Tyler can keep adding to his point totals!

Both of these games should be wins, but then again that's what I thought about a lot of games last season. I like what I'm seeing so far, 1-2 or not they are playing faster and smarter, hitting harder, and creating more offensive chances.
It seems the only uncertainty from game to game is who will be between the pipes. I like them both, they both have there own style of play and both of there own drawbacks as well as advantages. I won't try to tell Appert what to do about the goalie situation, being that he played the position in college and coached a couple phenoms out in Denver, but I am still not sold on the two goalie system.
A two headed running game might work in football but I still can't see the benefit of switching keepers every game. I feel like it would be better to get one of them comfortable playing in live game situations tather than switching them and kill whatever momentum they might be building.
