February 25th, 2011: is no longer an actively updated source for Clarkson Hockey madness. It was a ton of fun serving the fans of Clarkson Hockey for the 100 or so years that it lasted. will now serve as an archive, forever documenting the rise of the Bonesaw from 2006 - 2009. The Bonesaw is still going strong for Clarkson Hockey, but unfortunately does not have the active staff necessary to keep it updated regularly. If you think that you can get involved somehow feel free to contact us. May the saw be with you.

This weekend the Clarkson Golden Knights extended their winning streak to a season high 4 games with significant help from the stick of Shea Guthrie. What Guthrie did Friday night against the Dutchmen from Union was only repeated Saturday night against the so-called Engineers from RPI: an overtime winner. On Friday, the Knights saw a 3-1 first period lead slip away. However, Guthrie banged home a rebound in the overtime session to clinch an ECAC victory for the Green and Gold. Rufenach contributed two goals, including his second with only 0.8 seconds left in the first period, while D’Alvise notched one on the power play. Richie LaVeau started in net for Clarkson. 

Saturday night proved no different for the opposing side. This time, trailing 3-2 late in the third, Guthrie pounded a loose puck into the back of the net to tie the game up at 3. However, the man was not finished. Guthrie not only extended the game into overtime, he also finished the game in overtime. About 4 minutes into the extra session, Guthrie added his second of the night for back-to-back game winning overtime goals to send the Knights to another 4 point weekend. Paul Karpowich got the win. 

Owning a four game winning streak (all by a decisive score of 4-3 with the last three going to overtime), the Knights remain at Cheel for two very tough and important ECAC match-ups against Colgate and Cornell this coming weekend. Games start at 7pm.

Climbing the Ladder

And that is exactly what Clarkson University did this weekend. The Knights put together their first back to back winning performance of the year. On Friday night, Clarkson toppled over the nationally ranked Yale Bulldogs 4-3. Trailing 3-1 in the third period, the Knights took the lead in only 3 minutes and 10 seconds of play after three consecutive goals from Cayer, Bellows, and Guthrie. It was Shea Guthrie’s second of the night as he earlier gave the Knights a 1-0 lead in the first period. Again, Clarkson showed it’s resiliency against top ranked foes. If only the performance was carried over to non-ranked teams. The Knights did take this positive feed over to the next game at Brown. Matt Beca tallied the sudden death goal midway through the extra session to send the Clarkson to a second straight victory. In all, Beca had netted two goals, with Bellows and Rufenach adding the others for a 4-3 victory. LaVeau and Karpowich each got a win on the weekend. The Knights’ record is now moved to 5-13-4 and 3-6-1 in ECAC play. 

The women also followed the men’s winning ways by putting up 2 wins of their own extending their winning streak to 4 as well as 9-1-2 in their last 12 games. On Friday, the women defeated Yale by a score of 4-1 behind goals from Baribeau, MJ Gaudet, Britney Selina, and Captain Kimberly McKenney. Lauren Dahm was in net for the Knights, who scored 4 unanswered goals after going down 1-0 in the match. Saturday night’s game saw the same result. Trailing 1-0, Clarkson battled back for a 2-1 victory with goals from Baribeau and Melissa Waldie. Eve Grandmont-Berube backstopped the Knights to their 4th straight victory and a 12-6-4 record including 6-2-2 in the ECAC. 

The men return to action this weekend at Cheel Arena. Union and RPI pay a visit on Friday and Saturday as both games commence at 7pm. The women hit the road on Wednesday to pay a visit to the Sluzers. After this battle, the women then take a trip to the Capital region to also faceoff against Union and RPI. Make sure you get out this weekend and weekday to support your Knights!

The Knights took the ice this weekend in the highly anticipated SLU(t) games. Friday night’s game was pushed back to Sunday to accommodate the game being broadcasted on ESPNU. The series started off in the Crappleton Arena on Saturday night. The Knights came out extremely flat-footed and found themselves being pounded by a constant Saint attack. Unfortunately, the first tally by Clarkson by Matt Beca was little too late as St. Lawrence had already slipped 4 goals by starting goalkeeper Paul Karpowich. SLU would eventually tack on an unnecessary goal later to defeat the Knights 5-1. Richie LaVeau replaced Karpowich in net halfway through the game and stopped all but one. 

Sunday’s game proved to be no different. Again the Saints took the lead and never looked back. After some slim hope by a goal by D’Alvise, the Saints again out-skated the Green and Gold to their second straight victory in as many days. Clarkson hits the ice again this weekend visiting ECAC foes Yale and Brown. 

Meanwhile, on the women’s side, slowly but surely a magnificent season is being put together. The Lady Knights faced off against the University of Maine on Friday and Saturday. Marie Jo-Gaudet slipped three straight goals behind the Maine goaltender to give the Knights all they needed in Friday’s 3-2 victory. The goals gave MJ the record for most goals scored in their career at Clarkson. However, she was done there. After another tally on Saturday, followed by a little help from 3 different goal scorers, the Knights again took the victory in fashion, beating Maine 4-1. Lauren Dahm backstopped the Green and Gold with 12 saves on Saturday while Eve Grandmont-Berube stopped 14 on Friday. The two wins move the team to a solid record of 10-6-4. The women return to action this weekend at Cheel against ECAC foes Yale and Brown as well. Make sure get out this weekend to support the Lady Knights! 

Knights Lose in Championship Game

One night after a remarkable victory against 2nd ranked Miami, the Knights faced off against Ohio State, who easily manhandled Army to advanced to the Championship match. Again Clarkson played against a foe in a "neautral" site that was dominated by Ohio State fans. Taking to the ice, the Knights looked to string two victories together for, unfortunately, the first time all year.

The match turned out to be a goalie's battle. Paul Karpowich looked down the ice only to see his opponent Dustin Carlson turn shot after shot away. In the end, the Karpowich turned aside 32 of 33 shots as Ohio State slipped one past in the first period. Carlson on the other hand, stopped everything that came his way for the big shutout. An empty net goal was tacked on with seconds remaining the seal the victory for the Buckeyes. Karpowich stepped up huge in the Ohio Hockey Classic turning aside 72 of 75 shots faced.

Clarkson returns to the ice this weekend against non other than the SLU(t)'s. A home and home session is arranged for the two rivals (for those who don't know this hockey lingo, one game is played at each arena). Students, make sure you are back from Christmas break on Sunday before 4pm to get to Cheel for the big game!

56 Days Later and a Victory

After taking the holidays off, the Clarkson University Golden Knights returned to action Friday night against 2nd ranked Miami of Ohio. Playing in the Ohio Classic Tournament, the Knights were against a very good Miami team in a "neautral" site that heavily favored the RedHawks.

The Knights opened the scoring first off a goal from Shea Guthrie. Although being badly outshot 15-4 in the 1st period, Clarkson was able to slip away with a 1-0 lead behind Paul Karpowich. Miami tied the game nearly midway through the second only the have the Knights regain the lead 5 minutes later off a Julien Cayer powerplay tally. Again, the Knights skated into the locker-room up one goal. The third period turned out to be the decider as the Green and Gold slammed the door early with two quick goals from Rufenach and DeFazio. The RedHawks pressed the rest of the period and managed to cut the lead to 4-2 but that was all she wrote as the comeback fell short. Paul Karpowich played an excellent game, only allowing 2 goals on 42 shots. Clarkson only managed to put up 19 shots, however 4 found the back of the net.

The Knights earned their first victory in over two months, 56 days to be exact. The win moves the Knights record to a mere 3-10-4. It seems that Clarkson plays its best hockey against the top ranked teams in the nation. Overall, the Knights are 1-0-2 when facing off against teams ranked in the top 5 in the nation. Hopefully this win jumpstarts a nearly lost season. The Knights now face Ohio State in the championship match on Saturday night. Puckdrop is slated for 8:00pm.
