Super Troopers

Both the men and the women will be grappling with league opponents this weekend, and both will be on the hunt for their first ECAC points of the season... not exactly something you want to be saying when they've played four league games between each other.

For the ladies, it's a home weekend against Princeton (tonight) and Quinnipiac (tomorrow afternoon) in a pair of games they could be competitive in. Here's John Burke's evaluation of what to expect:


For the men, it's just as much of a need-points weekend, especially now that they are winless in five straight games. Tonight they tangle with an unbeaten-in-four Dartmouth squad before wrestling with a nationally-ranked Harvard team that skunked Bentley and Brown but failed to impress in their first challenge with Yale. It gets worse for RPI - they'll be without leading scorer Jacob Laliberte this weekend, victim of an up-high hit at the hands of Mat Bodie last Saturday, out with concussion symptoms.

What are we listening to today? Just some basic pumpup - couldn't derive a themed selection today, so instead just enjoy this work of hard driving heavy metal from Iron Maiden. We're going to need to see some troopers this weekend for sure. Cheers.
