  1. The Yale-Cornell game was one of the most exciting games I’ve seen live in years. There were interesting on-ice matchups (how much of Ferlin-O’Gara did we see?), incredible goaltending and very clean but physical play. Cornell is impossible to figure out. Are they the team that beat Michigan at MSG or the one that finished towards the bottom of the conference?

  2. This does not make sense: “Brown’s edge over Princeton earned Bruno a trip from Clarkson rather than Cornell; and the Big Red’s advantage over those Golden Knights take them to Providence rather than Princeton.”

    Cornell is going to Princeton.

  3. As impressive as Quinnipiac’s season has been, their double digit margin in the standings owes more to the parity in the rest of the league and lack of a strong #2 (with all due respect to RPI) than anything the Bobcats did. There have been other teams that have finished with as many or more points. Quinnipiac had 37 points this year. Cornell had 38 in 2005 to Harvard’s 32. Cornell had 39 in 2003 to Harvard’s 35. Union had 36 in 2011 to Yale’s 35. You can back into the 90s and find more instances of strong second place teams. The league was just especially flat this year as evidenced by the wide range of possible places in the standings most teams were facing prior to last weekend.

    • Much tighter middle-of-the-pack, between 2 and 10 this year. Unusual for what we’ve come to expect from the league over the last decade-plus. D’accord.

  4. Union remains the most talented team in the league, but their under achievement and inconsistency allowed others to creep into position. Should Union somehow regain their form, including hot goaltending, they will once again win the league.

    What is most interesting will be how many NCAA teams the ECAC can get this year – seems the strongest chance in years to put at least 3 in the field.

    • I’m pretty confident that Quinnipiac, RPI, and Yale would be inclined to disagree with the first part of your first sentence. Also, considering the majority of past history, Union IS returning to form!

      I partially kid ;) just an RPI fan poking some fun.

  5. While I hope I am wrong, as a Union Alumnus I don’t see them making it to the NCAA this year unless they win the ECAC and that is not likely. While the team has talent they lack the size and leadership and “acid in the gut” that marks a hockey champ. I am not sure Yale will make it either. RPI and Quinnipiac will well represent the ECAC.
