The Barn! The Barn! The Barn is on fire!

(posted by Ron)

WOW. Bring us back to 1998-1999 again.. With a strong lead in hand, the Princeton Tigers stormed back to tie the Golden Knights when Willie Mitchell fired "The Shot" to take Clarkson to the ECAC finals where they would defeat St. Lawrence.. Tonight Dartmouth comes back from 3-1 down to tie the Knights 4-4 with a minute and change remaining when Steve Zalewski nails the game-winner with forty-one seconds left to send Clarkson up against the Quinnipiac Bobcats who disposed of Clarkson's arch-rival SLU earlier in the evening.

Just an unbelievably fun game to watch even if I was forced to watch it online.

Big game tomorrow night for the ECACHL Championship. Game will be televised by CSTV.

Just ran some Pairwise Predictions and with a Golden Knights victory here are my likely scenarios. A Clarkson loss will likely result in a #5 or #6 in the PWR likely sending the Knights to Rochester or Manchester as well.

Clarkson wins.
UNH loses to Boston College
St. Cloud defeats Wisconsin

Clarkson is PWR #4, a one-seed heading to Manchester, NH.

Clarkson wins.
UNH loses to Boston College

Clarkson is PWR #3, a one-seed heading to Rochester, NY

Clarkson wins.
UNH beats Boston College
St. Cloud defeats Wisconsin

Clarkson is PWR #5, a two-seed heading to Rochester, NY.

Clarkson wins.
UNH beats Boston College
Wisconsin defeats St. Cloud

Clarkson is PWR #3, a one-seed heading the Rochester, NY

Keep in mind the WCHA consolation CAN end in a tie.
This also assumes that the top-remaining seeds win their respective tournaments:

Army over Air Force
Minnesota over North Dakota
St. Lawrence over Dartmouth
Michigan State over Lake Superior

Food for thought! I'm too lazy to bust out anything further. Hope to see you all in Albany tomorrow!

Travel safe tomorrow. The main highways were wicked greasy here tonight. Snow totals in the Capital District aren't expected to be too bad, but east of there may be on the order of 20" -- or so they are saying now. Hope to CU here!

Ron! We used to have a clip of The Shot on a server somewhere. Any chance it could be dug up and posted to YouTube or something? -Matt

You may wish to turn down the volume - the sound is really loud and quite distorted.
