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.

06-07 ECAC Hockey League Champion Golden Knights!!!

Jeremy - March 17, 2007 - 11:28 pm


Everyone knew this weekend was going to be a great chance to see some spectacular hockey games, regardless of how our home school heroes, the Clarkson Golden Knights, performed. The final four teams of the ECAC took to the ice in the Times Union Center in Albany, and one would become the ECAC league CHAMPION.

With SLU(t) and Dartmouth both losing in the semi-finals, they were the first teams to play today, and after playing possibly one of the most pathetic games of their season, the Saints actually looked somewhat like a final four hockey team as they beat the Big Green, 5-3.

The semi-final round winners, Quinnipiac Bobcats and the Clarkson Golden Knights. The energy was high, and the Bobcats were able to take advantage of an early rush as they drew first blood only 32 seconds into play. Honestly, the Knights seemed a little stunned by the early score, and it definitely loomed over them for the rest of the period, with Quinnipiac really controlling the puck well. To add to an already tense game, the Bobcats were able to tack on one more on a power play in the last 7 seconds of the first period, and at the buzzer it was 0-2.

George Roll, head coach for our men in Green and Gold, must have threatened the team with no more Smokehouse BBQ where he is frequently seen eating lunch. The Knights had a new look as they were skating stronger and completing passes more frequently. Still, despite the obvious change in play, there was a lot of back and forth skating up and down the ice, but no scoring even though CU out-shot Quinnipiac 9-7.

Just when the fans for the Bobcats thought that the Knights of Clarkson and the Bonesaw Brigade itself had given up hope, a sudden rise in chanting and screaming erupted just before the third period of play -- before the players even hit the ice. And just like that, Chris D'Alvise took that fan support and made it count with a goal less than two minutes into the third. The Bobcats saw a chance to bring back their lead on a powerplay, but let it sneak away.

Philippe Paquet brought the Green and Gold back to their feet, tying the game at 2 a piece at 12 and a half minutes. Before the fans even had a chance to sit back in their seats, Brodie Rutherglen slaps one by good ole Bud Fisher (Sieve) to give the Golden Knights their first lead of the night.

It was possibly the most thrilling moment that I myself have ever been a part of as one of the fans. But, as we all knew from the previous game against Dartmouth, with over 6 minutes left to play, this game was far from over. Second after second ticked aways, and then, the moment we all waited for...Quinnipiac pulled their goalie in their last attempt to regain control. As if it was his job, and his alone, Shawn Weller took a shot from the blueline to seal the game with 56 seconds remaining.

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 -The 2006-2007 Clarkson Golden Knights became the ECAC Hockey League Champions, unleashing the Bonesaws 4 times in the 3rd Period to come back and win over the Quinnipiac Bobcats!!! Pictures from this historic moment can be seen by clicking the "In Action" tab above.






The Golden Knights now look forward to the NCAA National Tournament where they will compete for the national title.

From everyone here at Bonesaw.org and the Bonesaw Brigade, congratulations to everyone on the team and coaching staff on this monumental achievement. BONESAW!!!
