This will be a quick post here to say that yesterday’s ECAC Championship games were freaking outstanding.
Yale coming back with two goals in 22 seconds late in the third period to defeat St. Lawrence followed up by Cornell scoring two goals in the final two and a half minutes to force overtime with Princeton and then putting home the game winner in double-overtime makes for a full day of hockey.
Not to mention gathering with some of the hockey compadres after the second game was finally over with at about 11:30 pm. Seven hours of hockey awesomeness makes for a full day.
Adding to the awesome? USCHO has finally posted my story based around Hobart College’s hockey program that I had mentioned briefly a day or two ago. I think USCHO was hoping to use it as a feature should Hobart make the Finals and/or win it all.
Alas, Neumann College decided to pee on the parade and win 2-0 in the National Semifinals.
It’s not the sarcastic wit-fest you’ll find around here normally, this is spruced up a bit. You know, semi-professional and it’s a great story nonetheless. Check it out and enjoy.
I’ll be back down in Albany this afternoon and tonight for the consolation game between St. Lawrence and Princeton that likely means a spot in the NCAA Tournament is on the line as well as the Championship Game between Yale and Cornell.
I will be posting scoring updates to Twitter, so if you can’t find the games on TV or can’t make it to the arena or anything else… I got your hook-up.
There’ll be crappy amateur photos galore coming soon for this so be ready.
