There's Always One

"In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't, the Indians have managed to win a few here and there, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar." -- Harry Doyle, Major League

Great day for RPI hockey yesterday as the women put up a solid 3-1 victory over Union in Schenectady before the men rode a dominating second period - easily their best performance of the year - and kept a completely out of sorts St. Lawrence team from doing anything notable in the other two periods to take a 4-0 victory.

That's three wins in a row for the men's team, which they haven't accomplished since the five game stretch last January. Oddly enough, the attendance last night dipped below 3,000 for the first time since the Brown game - which was also a shutout.

The women now have a little separation on the back of the pack - three points ahead of 10th place Colgate, and two behind 8th place Brown. With a victory at home this afternoon (while Brown takes on 3rd place Harvard), RPI could well tie the Bears for the final playoff spot, setting up a three week scramble for points between the Engineers and Brown.

Two games at the Field House tonight... come on out for both! You won't be disappointed.

Special treat today: a reader-submitted photoshop effort. This one comes to us courtesy of Tom Kinstrey, who reminds us all of the... natural charisma of the Clarkson fan/student/alum.
