RPI Beats Clarkson 4-3, Finishing Third in ECAC Tournament
There wasn't much on the line in the ECAC Tournament Consolation Game on Saturday afternoon, except an opportunity for Rensselaer to get its 20th win of the season. Although the Engineers fell behind Clarkson 3-1 after two periods, they came storming back to tie the game with a little less than 12 minutes left. Senior Matt Murley put the game away for RPI with a power play goal with 0:32 remaining in the game.
By winning this game, RPI's senior class has left an enviable mark in the school record book: they won 20 or more games in three of their four seasons. RPI Coach Dan Fridgen said, "It was one of the years where we struggled at times, but we turned it around and it's a credit to the seniors on this team."
