RPI Breaks the Jinx, Beats St. Lawrence
The Times Union reports that Rensselaer beat St. Lawrence 6-4 on Saturday night at The Fieldhouse. This win ends a six game losing streak that RPI had against St. Lawrence, including last season's ECAC Championship Final.
Tim Wilkin of the Times Union is right to characterize this as a big victory. It's almost a big enough win to make us forget that Clarkson beat the Engineers on Friday night. The US College Hockey Online game recap implies that it was a very close game, quoting Dan Fridgen as saying, "Third period, lost faceoff, a missed assignment and a goal, it's that simple," said Fridgen. "It's disappointing but we have to park it and come back strong tomorrow." Seems like the team responded to that message, Coach.
