Men's Hockey 1-2-1 in Recent Games
The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team has played four games since our last report on RCNJ. On the weekend of December 3-4, RPI tied Brown 3-3 in Providence after losing a three-goal lead. This was followed on Saturday night with a 2-1 loss to Harvard, dropping Rensselaer into 10th place in the ECAC Hockey League.
The Engineers bounced back to break out of a number of negative streaks in a non-league game against Providence at Houston Fieldhouse on Wednesday, December 8. The 4-3 victory was the RPI's first one-goal win since late last season (March 6, 2004 against Princeton). RPI also broke a three-game winless streak by beating the Friars.
Rensselaer ended its December schedule with a 4-1 home loss to 14th-ranked Boston University on Saturday. Goaltender Jordan Alford, who has been playing a lot recently, was unavailable due to illness, as was defenseman Scott Romfro.
The men's hockey team's is back on the ice for two non-conference games on January 1 and 2 at Notre Dame.
