|Engineering a Fix|
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100For long stretches last season, Rensselaer was near the top of the ECAC standings. Many thought its progression upwards would continue into this year and that the offensive pieces it had would continue to develop.
Early in the year, that concept has taken a serious hit, and the trend turned in the other direction. The Engineers are off to one of the worst starts in program history. At 3-12-1 overall ... more »

|Team of the Week: Vermont|
Wed, 30 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100Unlike last year's Friendship Four tournament winner, Vermont was already getting accolades this season going into last weekend. But the Catamounts certainly hope their post-tournament fate can match that of one of last year's participants.
Northeastern had one win going into last year's inaugural tournament, played in Belfast, Northern Ireland, then did well there, winning and losing one game in ... more »
|Minnesota Hopes BC Win is Sign of Things to Come|
Tue, 29 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100Standing behind the bench at Conte Forum in Boston on Sunday afternoon, Don Lucia experienced a flashback. His team led Boston College, 3-2, deep into the third period, and the Eagles were swarming.
Minnesota took its lead midway through the third period when Vinni Lettieri scored on a breakaway. From there on, it was all BC. Teams take more shots, force more pressure when they're trailing an opponent ... more »

St. Lawrence junior Nolan Gluchowski and Quinnipiac senior Connor Clifton will miss their team's next game.

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100When you do something no one has done since Joe Nieuwendyk, it's pretty special. When you do it in front of friends and family at the "World's Most Famous Arena," the same ice as your favorite NHL team and where you once skated as a kid, it's twice as nice.
Throw in a key save while his goalie was out of position, and it was quite a night for Cornell junior forward Alex Rauter.
Rauter's shorthanded ... more »

|Roundup: Denver Unbeaten in 12 After Wild Win Over Wisconsin|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100Wisconsin has certainly proven to be an improved team this year under first-year coach Tony Granato. But its biggest test so far awaited in Denver on Saturday, and even in a loss, the Badgers proved they would be a formidable team this year.
Wisconsin rallied from down 5-2, but fell short in a 6-5 loss in a highly-entertaining game at Magness Arena. The win for Denver extends its unbeaten streak to ... more »
|Michigan State Revels in Strong Weekend at ND|
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 11:00:00 +0100Even a tie game can be cause for celebration when the tie comes against the reigning national champions.
Michigan State has had some trying times lately, but perhaps this weekend in North Dakota can catapult the Spartans. After winning Friday, Michigan State earned a 2-2 tie Saturday, though the "win" in an otherwise meaningless 3-on-3 overtime session set off a bit of celebrating. The Spartan players ... more »
