That Which Does Not Kill...

Speaking of killing... did you know the Engineers were 4th in the nation on the kill? Not as good as they were heading into last week against Notre Dame, but at 92% (23-for-25), it's certainly a plus to know that RPI's got the defense they need when they're down a man.

They'll need that against a Colorado College power play that will be looking to improve on its weak 1-for-7 showing on the man advantage two weeks ago in its opening weekend against Bemidji State.

These two games against the Tigers represent the last non-conference games of the early-season run for RPI, and as we've well documented here, they've been a doozy - but we agree with Seth Appert, these are the kind of games you want to be playing.


Meanwhile, the women kick off their ECAC schedule, also at home, against Quinnipiac and Princeton, a tough weekend to be sure but a key opportunity for the women to snap out of their four-game slide.

It's a great weekend for hockey in Troy, complete with its very own snowstorm!
