RPI Splits with Vermont and Dartmouth

Nathan Marsters stopped a total of 77 shots and allowed three goals in a split with Vermont and Dartmouth this weekend. RPI defeated Vermont 4-1 at the Gutterson Field House on Friday night and then lost to Dartmouth the following evening at Thompson Arena by a score of 2-1.

Friday's game was much closer than the 4-1 score would indicate. Matt Murley got two empty net goals within the final 1:08 of play to secure the win. It was a fast and well-executed contest, where RPI capitalized on their breaks and Vermont did not. (Read the recaps at USCHO or the Times-Union)

Saturday's game was a very frustrating one for the Engineer faithful. A splendid performance by Marsters was squandered by a disorganized attack and a lackadaisical defense. A consensus of friends whom I brought to the game disagree with Coach Fridgen's comment on USCHO that it was a "well-played hockey game", at least from the RPI perspective. Passing and flow were non-existent and Marsters saved us from a blowout. (Read the recaps at USCHO or the Times-Union)
