Men's Hockey Team Swept in Weekend Series with Colgate and Cornell

Dave Aiello wrote, "I've been extremely busy with work since I got back from vacation, so I was unable to point out last weekends men's ice hockey results until now."

"On Friday night, Cornell won a close game with RPI by a final score of 2-1. Everyone who saw the game said it was defensive in nature, with a lot of clutching and grabbing. In games like that, it's important to not retaliate when the opponent is about to receive a penalty. Rensselaer could have had a power play with 1:25 to go in regulation, but Kirk MacDonald evened things up by slashing Cornell's Chris Abbott back. Maybe that was the difference in the game."

"Vic Pereira scored the lone goal for RPI, on an assist from Conrad Barnes. Nathan Marsters had 21 saves."

"Saturday, Colgate came to the Field House and spoiled Senior Night, winning by a 3-2 score. Despite a furious rally in the third period, RPI probably lost this game because it took too many penalties. Colgate scored two power play goals, while Rensselaer went 0-for-4 in man up situations."

"Vic Pereira and Blake Pickett had the goals for the Engineers. Nathan Marsters made 27 saves."

"As a result, RPI falls into sole possession of fifth place. They must win both games at Princeton and Yale this weekend to earn a bye in the first round of the ECAC Playoffs."
