Come here after the games for analysis and insights from CHN Staff members.
Seven different players scored as RIT earned the rout, and a trip to the quarterfinals, where it will face top-seeded Niagara.
Four different Falcons scored and Jason Torf made 28 saves, as Air Force earned a sweep. “They took it to us in the first period, but thankfully for us Jason Torf was the best player in the rink,” Air Force head coach Frank Serratore said. “Jason got us through the first period and gave us a chance. From that point, the guys took advantage of it. During this 8-2-2 run, we have done the majority of it on the road and that is a good sign. These were good wins, but right now we don’t want to get too high or too low. Right now, we are finding ways to win.”
Robert Morris has not fared that well back in conference play after some huge non-league wins against big time teams. It split this weekend with AIC. In fact, that's been somewhat of a trend for RMU since joining Atlantic Hockey. I'm not sure what it means exactly, but I'm pretty sure it's not good.
Josh Watson got the shutout as RIT earned its first win since beating Michigan to open the season.
