Tough Night for Cornell Hockey
Harvard Blows Out Big Red 6-1
[Update: 3/20/12 – here’s some real hockey fans! Watch, as she says “Yes”!]
Last night, I made the annual pilgrimage to the ECAC hockey tournament, as I have since spring of 1976 in Boston Garden.
The ECAC tournament has migrated over the years from Boston Garden, to Lake Placid (my favorite venue), to Albany NY (the pits). Last year, the tournament began a 3 year stint in Atlantic City.
Atlantic City has not been kind to Cornell goalie Andy Iles, one of the top goalies in the country who is backed by a defense that allowed the second fewest total goals against in the nation this year.
In last year’s championship game, he was chased out after Yale scored 5 unanswered goals in a 7-0 blowout.
Last night, in the semifinal round, he again allowed weak early goals as Harvard crushed Cornell 6-1.
The Big Red were awful and avoided another embarrassing Atlantic City shutout with a goal with a minute left in the game.
It was a long night and not pretty. It was so sickening, I couldn’t even shoot photos.
