It Begins... Again

A new beginning for both squads this week... the women start the home segment of their ECAC schedule, hosting Princeton tonight and facing the team Jill Vandegrift called "a growing rival" on our podcast on Saturday - Quinnipiac.

Meanwhile, the men hit the road to take on a pair of teams just starting their seasons out, seeking to extend their unbeaten streak, which currently sits at six games in a row after last week's tie with Union in Lake Placid. It's already the longest unbeaten streak since six in a row in October and November of 2007. A win or a tie tonight extends it to the longest unbeaten streak since the Engineers won nine straight between December 1998 to the end of January 1999.

It's a birthday celebration today - on November 5th, 1824, Stephen van Rensselaer founded The Rensselaer School. Also, we celebrate the first anniversary of Without a Peer. Hopefully our second year will be just as awesome as our first. As a commemoration, allow the musical stylings of David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel, and Derek Smalls to get you psyched for a weekend of ECAC hockey.
