Brown Sweeps Playoff Series to End Men's Hockey's Season

The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team was swept in a Best-of-Three Game Series at Brown University this weekend. These losses end their season and leave their final record at 14-22-2.

On Friday night, Brown kept things fairly even despite several special teams goals from RPI, then jumped ahead for good with 7:35 to go in regulation. Brown won the game 7-4. On Saturday, Brown's Chris Poli scored at 5:33 of overtime to clinch the series.

The Engineers had their chance midway through the third period when Kirk MacDonald and Kevin Croxton scored in rapid succession, given RPI their only lead of the series. The game was retied by Brown's Gerry Burke, 1:33 later.

The Times Union article about Friday night's game indicates that Rensselaer easily could have won the game on Friday, despite the difference in the final score. As was the case in several games toward the end of this season however, our team gave up a quick flurry of goals that made the difference.
