RPI Splits Weekend Series with Minnesota-Duluth
The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team took on Minnesota-Duluth in non-league action this past weekend and split the two game series. On Friday night, Nolan Graham and Kevin Croxton led RPI to a 5-2 victory. Graham had one goal and four assists in the game; This was the first time an Engineer had scored five points since Matt Murley did it in November 2000.
In the game on Saturday, T.J. Caig scored a breakaway goal with 16 minutes to go in regulation, leading UMD to a 3-2 victory. Kirk MacDonald and Ben Barr had power play goals for Rensselaer in defeat.
The Friday game had the lowest actual attendance for a men's varsity game at Houston Field House in most people's memory. Reportedly, only 464 spectators made it to the game. This was because of the huge snowstorm that hit Upstate New York that evening.
