Come here after the games for analysis and insights from CHN Staff members.
Army stayed in second place with the tie, in the always-fierce matchup between the two service academies. “It didn’t look good for the Falcons when we were down 3-1, but we showed some resiliency coming back,” Air Force coach Frank Serratore said. “Our even-strength defense needs to get better, but Torf was there to bail us out when we dropped a bomb. We gave them a couple of easy even-strength chances. Our penalty kill was pretty good and when we needed our power-play to score for us, they did in the third.”
After taking CHN Team of the Week honors for winning the Three Rivers Tournament by defeating Penn State and Miami, it would appear that Robert Morris suffered a big letdown in Friday's game, losing 5-0. It can certainly be forgiven, but even with the bounceback win Saturday, the Colonials have been inexplicably mediocre in Atlantic Hockey play, while playing great hockey out of conference, against a number of very good teams. RMU is also giving up a lot of shots, even when not playing Miami -- as exemplified by the 47 saves Eric Levine needed to make in this one. He's generally been up to the task.
