More men’s hockey notes

Not only would a win tomorrow over the Saints give Dartmouth the top-seed for the conference playoffs, but it would also give the school its first Cleary Cup ever as ECAC(HL) regular season champions. A fitting tribute to cap off the 100 years of hockey celebration if they can pull it off.

Big game tomorrow. Huge even.

Hopefully the crowd’s a little more packed tomorrow – 3900 and change tonight is pitiful considering how big this weekend is. It’d be great to see a full house tomorrow for a game that’s far and away the biggest of the year.

Even more amazing is that this team started 0-4 on the year, all conference games. Since then they’ve gone 13-2-2 in ECACHL play, losing only at St. Lawrence and at Cornell in that span. Overall, the team is 9-1-0 in conference play at home (only loss being to Colgate as part of that 0-4 start).
