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.

A Gripping Hockey Season Comes to a Close

Jeremy - March 30, 2008 - 5:46 pm

The Clarkson Golden Knight’s had a fantastic season this year, finishing the regular season with an ECAC record of 15-4-3 which gave them the title of Regular Season Champs. Their overall record during the regular season gave the Green and Gold their second straight 20 win season with a record of 20-10-4.

Unfortunately the Knights ECAC Tournament play came to a gripping halt in the quarterfinals against Colgate. After the Knights took a 1-0 game lead in the best of 3 series, Colgate was able to win in game two, and again in double overtime to send the Raiders to the semi-finals and end the Golden Knight’s quest to defend their ECAC League Champion title.

But a new life was given to Clarkson as they had been invited to the NCAA Tournament and would face off with St. Cloud in the regional games in Albany. St. Cloud was the 2nd seed and CU found a 3rd seed. The Knight’s looked to improve their NCAA play record after losing in the first round to UMass last year, while St. Cloud looked for their first ever win in NCAA tournament history. In the second period the Huskies took the lead 0-1, but Steve Zalewski wouldn’t let them go into the break with the lead, taking advantage of a rebound off the goalies leg pad and lobbing it right over his head into the goal. Shea Guthrie put the Green and Gold ahead early in the third, skating past several defenders and finishing it up with a nice back handed shot in net. For the rest of the period the Golden Knight’s defense played strong and Leggio was solid, as the Knights won the first round matchup 2-1.

The following evening the Knights now faced #1 nationally ranked Michigan for a chance at a ticket to the Frozen Four next weekend. Throughout the first period CU proved they can skate with the power houses out west, and even out muscle them from time to time. However, Michigan was able to take advantage of a power play to take the early lead, 0-1. The score remained the same through the second period, and Clarkson continued to lay steady pressure on Michigan’s net, while Leggio held strong for the Knights. Then, to start the 3rd, the Wolverines were able to add some padding to their game, bring the score to 0-2 in their favor. At the end of the period, with Leggio pulled to give the offense on final boost, the Golden Knights found themselves with a 6 on 3 opportunity as 2 Wolverines were in the box, but even with the added attackers, the Knights just couldn’t get on the board. The game ended with the score Golden Knights 0, Michigan 2.

This season marked yet another successful Clarkson campaign, although some areas of the post season may have lead to some disappointment in the team, there was also a lot of promise shown where our very young team was able to hold their ground and fight toe to toe with some of the best teams in the nation. Personally I was very happy with the season and although it could have been better, there were several thrilling moments and major victories that made watching the Clarkson Golden Knights this season very enjoyable.

On behalf of the entire Bonesaw Brigade, I just want to congratulate all of the players on the team, and wish them best of luck next season, and to all of our graduating Seniors, good luck with whatever lies down your road.

LET’S GO TECH!!! We will see you next October.
