Wow – Now 4-2 Elmira

Two more goals for the Soaring Eagles and it’s now 4-2. Derrick Ryan beat Maida glove side with a backhand at 4:22, and Russel Smith’s power play goal from the slot has made it 4-2 at 6:20.


    • It was worth a Tweet, which I did last night. It’s now happened 3 times in 33 series. Canisius has now done it twice,

      Other useless trivia: All but Canisius has won a conference championship of some kind. Mercyhurst won the MAAC in 2001 and 2003 and AHA in 2005. Niagara won the CHA in 2000 (no autobid but got an at-large bid), 2004 and 2008. UConn won the MAAC in 2000 but the league didn’t have an autobid yet. So UConn and Canisius have never been to the NCAA tournament.

  1. Even with Canisius and Niagara I still think the stands will seem empty, as it is they are the 4pm game on Friday. Bet is each school will bring a bus maybe 2. Each school is more basketball, Niagara does a decent job a filling their arena, despite a lack of student interest (They go to the basketball games) with locals and a decent youth hockey imprint, but hardly anyone will travel, these are causal fans at best…

  2. MN will probably not win it all this year (although I’m hopeful), but the quality and overall consistency of play this year demonstrates the importance of a strong senior class.
