Rensselaer Loses Series to Dartmouth Despite Winning Game 1
The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team's season ended Sunday night with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Dartmouth. It's kind of hard to believe that the outcome would be so close in this game, after RPI won Game 1 by a 3-1 score and Dartmouth came back to blow out the Engineers 6-0 in Game 2.
These teams are probably as evenly matched as they can be, if they are playing on neutral ice. But, RPI has had real difficulty winning in Hanover for the past several years (one win in the past eight games played). As the Times Union article correctly concluded, Rensselaer's regular season head-to-head record against Dartmouth made a big difference in the outcome of the series.
