RPI Buries UMass-Amherst
Rensselaer capitalized on "an extended 5 on 3 power play" in the first period to score six first period goals en route to a 9-2 rout of UMass-Amherst at Houston Field House. This must have been an interesting game, since three players from each side were ejected for fighting in one altercation midway through the first period.
Matt Murley scored his hundredth career point in a game that saw him score four goals in under 18 minutes of playing time. He provided one of the best college hockey quotes in recent memory (in the U.S. College Hockey Online game report): "It was a great period.... I guess I turned into a great goal scorer all of a sudden. Last year those shots would have hit the post and bounced into our own net."
The Engineers may not be a consistant team this season, but they have played an interesting brand of hockey up to now.
