RPI Hammers Princeton and Yale

Many of us watched RPI thoroughly dominate Princeton and Yale this weekend. On Friday night, Kevin Broad broke a 1-1 tie with a power play goal with 2:14 left in the first period. The Engineers never looked back, cruising to a 5-1 win. Kevin Croxton, Ryan Shields, Brad Farynuk, and Kirk MacDonald also scored for Rensselaer. Nathan Marsters made 31 saves, and deserved a shutout.

Saturday night, Rensselaer played a very similar game, this time against Yale. The game was scoreless for the entire first period and seemed even to many in attendance. However, Oren Eizenman and Kevin Croxton scored goals 16 seconds apart early in the second period, and RPI rolled to a 6-0 victory. Eizenman ended the night with two goals and two assists. Croxton had two goals. Vic Pereira and Matt McNeely also scored for the Engineers. Nathan Marsters made 36 saves to earn the shutout.

The regular season is now over. Rensselaer finished in a tie for fourth place, but fell to fifth as a result of head-to-head record against Dartmouth (0-1-1). The Engineers will open the playoffs at 7:00pm on Friday in the Fieldhouse, against ECAC 12th place finisher, Princeton.
