RPI Splits Weekend Series with Harvard and Brown

The Mens' Hockey Team continued to have difficulty scoring this weekend. On Friday, they lost a heartbreaker to Harvard, 1-0. As Tim Wilken from the Times-Union pointed out, that was the first time that RPI had ever been shut out 1-0 in Houston Field House, where we've played hockey for 51 seasons.

On Saturday, The Engineers came out of their scoring slump a little, defeating Brown 4-2. This was a key victory in terms of positioning the team for the playoffs. If RPI had lost this game, they might have been eliminated from contention for home ice during the ECAC playoffs.

However, due to the RPI victory over Brown, and the coincidental Union defeat of Harvard, and Dartmouth's loss to Yale, the Engineers trail Dartmouth by only two points. RPI's chances of winning a home ice playoff series look better when you compare the remaining schedules of Dartmouth, RPI, and Yale.
