Did You Know: The Clarkson Hockey program has amassed 10,001 goals since the 1920-21 season?

Saturday, March 18, 2006


Well, looks like everyone's predictions for the Harvard / Dartmouth game was just a tad bit off last night. Harvard received goals from eight different players en route to a 10-1 victory in Albany last night. In the nightcap, Cornell defeated Colgate in a much closer matchup downing the Raiders 2-0. This one went down to the wire as Colgate had their goalie pulled on the power play in the final two minutes, but couldn't cash in, while the Big Red found the empty net. Surprise, surprise, Cornell and Harvard in the finals, both of them seem to be locks for the NCAA tournament, so this one is for a big trophy, pride, and seeding.

My prediction for tonight's game:
Cornell 3 - Harvard , An empty-netter finishes the job.

Brett is off to Elmira today to catch the Division III Frozen Four and he'll be bringing back a little recap action, plus hopefully a little insight from former Golden Knight and Hobart assistant coach Phil Roy.

If you don't pay attention to other conferences or other teams, you may have missed this, but Bentley of Atlantic Hockey is making a run in their conference tournament, despite having a 12-14-5 record entering the tourney. After beating Army in 2OT, they defeated Mercyhurst last night in the same fashion. A victory by Bentley would pretty much flip the NCAA Tournament onto its head, as Holy Cross, their opponent in tonight's final would actually get a PWR boost, allowing them to secure an at-large bid, and giving Atlantic Hockey two teams in the NCAA. We're really looking forward to the ensuing controversy and flame wars across the Internet if this happens.

More interesting to Clarkson fans would be a familiar face from the 2002-2003 season on the Bentley Falcon's roster, the European Sensation, Marc Zwicky. Zwicky is currently fourth on the team in scoring, and has had a goal in both playoff victories. After leaving Clarkson, he played for Brockville, retained his eligibility and now has the chance to play in the NCAA Tournament with a victory. Not too shabby!
