SUPER SPECIAL MESSAGE
February 25th, 2011:

Bonesaw.org 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. Bonesaw.org 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 Bonesaw.org 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.

The Boys Reclaim 1st Place, and the Ladies Pull in 4 Points

Jeremy - January 20, 2008 - 9:57 pm

No one likes Cornell, and even more so no one likes playing Cornell on their home ice. Especially not the Golden Knights who have lost their last 7 games at Cornell, including two heartbreaking double overtime games two years ago in the ECAC playoffs. To make matters even worse, CU comes into Lynah rink after tying Colgate, 1-1, whom the Knights have had no troubles with in the past.

The game started off with Clarkson looking strong and dominating the puck. Only 7:32 in Chris D'Alvise came around from behind the net, and even though he didn't have any angle to shoot into the goal, he flipped the puck up and bounced it off the back of the goalie's helmet for the score, with some assistance from Shea Guthrie and Bryan Rufenach. Only 3 minutes later, Steve Zalewski scored shooting the puck over Scrivens' left shoulder for his 5th goal in 3 games, assisted by Matt Beca and Lauri Tuohimma. Then, less than 2 minutes later, Guthrie came from behind the net and crossed in front of Scrivens and pushed the puck by him, putting Clarkson up 3-0. That was the end of Scrivens' game, as he was pulled and the Big Red put in their backup Davenport. Leggio has an easy period, as Cornell only mustered 3 shots against him, none of course made it by.

Not too much happened in the 2nd period, and in fact the control of the puck was pretty even as the teams went back and forth on the ice. Leggio put up 8 more saves, and the same went for Davenport, neither allowed a goal in the period.

So entering the 3rd, the Knights had the lead, but of all teams Clarkson should no that no lead is safe with 20 minutes of hockey left to play. With that in mind, Cornell definately stepped up their offense, pressing Leggio consistently for the first time of the game. Then, on a Cornell powerplay, the Big Red were able to jump on the scoreboard. Clarkson tightened up a little, but Cornell still controlled the puck and now had a renewed vigor as they attacked the net. With around 5 minutes left in the game, there was a face off in CU's end, and right off the face off there should have been an interference penalty called on Cornell, even the TV announcers agreed, but instead, the Big Red got the puck in front of the net and in an attempt to clear the puck, Paquet tipped the puck off the post into the net. So, the Knights now had to hold onto a 3-2 lead for 5 more minutes, and theY finally turned on their offense and started pressing Davenport on the other end of the ice. Cornell pulled their goalie in a last ditch effort, and only seconds later Tim Marks launched the puck down ice from Clarkson's end and the puck slid in for the empty net score, thus cementing the victory. A lot of props to Leggio for his third period performance, for even though he allowed 2 goals, he also made 14 saves.

The Bonesaws were unleashed 4 times on the nationally broadcast ESPNU game and clearly shown on TV, as the Clarkson Golden Knights down the Cornell Big Red for the first time on their own turf in 8 tries, 4-2. This win also gives the Knights first place in the ECAC over Quinnipiac.

The Lady Knights stayed home this weekend, and also pulled in 4 points of their own. On Friday they beat Colgate 3-1, and on Saturday went over Cornell, 4-1. This puts the girls in 4th place in the ECAC. While a 1st place finish may seem a litte out of reach now, 2nd place is still a possiblity and coming off a strong weekend, let's hope for some more points against RPI and Union next weekend.
