Flush it Down

The Engineers tied Cornell 1-1 tonight to earn a total of 5 points against the top two teams in the ECAC... and yet they finish as the 6th seed after tying St. Lawrence for fifth place (and, as we've repeatedly mentioned, the Saints won the season series and thus the tiebreaker.

So here's what we've got.

#12 Clarkson at #5 St. Lawrence
#11 Brown at #6 RPI
#10 Dartmouth at #7 Quinnipiac
#9 Harvard at #8 Princeton

If the Engineers advance past Brown, they would play at #3 Union unless Clarkson defeats St. Lawrence. Then they would travel to #4 Colgate.

The potential matchups in the 2nd round are as follows.
Princeton/Harvard/Dartmouth/Brown/Clarkson at #1 Yale
Quinnipiac/Princeton/Harvard/Dartmouth/Brown at #2 Cornell
RPI/Quinnipiac/Princeton/Harvard/Dartmouth at #3 Union
St. Lawrence/RPI/Quinnipiac/Princeton/Harvard at #4 Colgate

It's do or die next week at the Field House as "Flying" Harry Zolnierczyk and the Brown Bears return for an encore performance. Stay tuned this week as we break down the bears.
