The Golden Knights of Clarkson rebounded last weekend with a pair of non-conference wins against Bowling Green of the CCHA. On Friday the Knights outshot the Falcons 33-20, but still had to come from behind to pull out a 4-3 win; the shooting was an even more lopsided 41-22 the following night, and Clarkson managed an easy 6-1 victory behind three power play goals in a penalty-filled weekend. The other North Country team, St. Lawrence, opened their season in Maine at the JC P*nn*y classic. The Saints continued the ECAC's woes against WCHA teams, being blown out of the water 12-3 by the Colorado College Tigers. SLU did rebound in the consolation game with an 8-6 win over New Brunswick's St. Thomas, 6-1 first-round losers to host school Maine. (Maine and CC tied at 6 in the final, but the Tigers won the tourney 3-2 on penalty shots.)
Saturday's nonconference slate saw Colgate edge an Army team which has played Central New York teams tough the past few years; the Red Raiders escaped West Point with a 4-3 overtime win, Dru Burgess completing a hat trick with the game-winner. In the renewal of the ECAC-Hockey East rivalry, the breakaway circuit got the upper hand, as the Vermont Catamounts were nipped by the BU Terriers 3-2 and Union fell 5-4 to Providence in overtime. RPI provided the ECAC's first win over their New England neighbors with a 4-2 decision against UMass-Lowell.
The Ivy exhibitions got started this weekend as well, with Princeton handling Division III Elmira 8-3 Friday, Cornell blanking Canadian opponent Ryerson 4-0 Saturday and Brown and Yale splitting a pair of two-period scrimmages Sunday. The Bruins took the first two-period contest 4-1 and the Elis claimed the second by a 5-2 margin.
