RPI Visits Bowling Green, Gets Swept
The mens hockey team traveled out to Ohio this weekend and got swept by Bowling Green. On Friday night, Bowling Green shut out RPI 4-0. The Times Union report indicated that this was the first time RPI had been shut out this season, and Bowling Green out shot Rensselaer 40 to 20.
The Falcons made it two straight against RPI on Saturday night, with a 4-3 victory. Up to this weekend, Bowling Green had not swept a home weekend this season. Too bad that they had to break the streak against RPI.
This two game series is part of a larger series of meetings that RPI has had with Bowling Green, since former RPI coach Buddy Powers left Troy to return to Bowling Green. He had been at Bowling Green earlier in his career as an assistant coach. Buddy is one of the nicest people in college hockey, but he seems to like to beat ECAC teams whenever he gets the opportunity.
