• RIT Hockey vs. Robert Morris

    Last weekend we decided to go see the RIT Tigers play against Robert Morris. The Tigers hockey schedule was a little skewed this season, so a majority of the home games were in January and February. That has resulted in us going to many games so far this month. We’d never seen the Tigers play Robert Morris, so it was a chance to see a new team.

    Unfortunately for the Tigers they ran into a Robert Morris squad that was 10-1-1 in their last 12 games. The Tigers outplayed Robert Morris in the Friday night game, but ended up giving up a late goal and ended up with a 2-2 tie. The Saturday game was a complete blowout, and the Tigers played one of the worst games I can remember. They were just awful, no hustle, beaten to the puck, and terrible even on their own power play.

    Tracy and I were both happy to see the Tigers wearing their Frozen Frontier outdoor hockey jerseys. Here’s a few photos from the Friday game.

  • RIT Hockey vs. Army Black Knights

    This weekend Tracy and I decided to go to the RIT hockey games. There were two of them, Friday and Saturday. RIT won both of them despite having a down year so far. The first game was a 6-0 win, which really didn’t reflect how Army played. RIT got off to a 2-0 lead about minute and a half into the game and never looked back. The second game was closer, 4-3 and Army put on a lot of pressure at the end. Both games saw a penalty shot, one for each team, but nobody scored on either. It was fun, and they were good games. RIT is 12-03 against Army in it’s last 15, so it was the right weekend to go if you like winning.

  • RIT Hockey Opener

    Each year the RIT Tigers have a home “opener” downtown at the Blue Cross Arena. Its not really their home opener, but it is one of the first couple games of the season in Rochester. The game is always pretty good, and lately we’ve been getting some pretty neat teams. This year was Penn State, next year is Michigan. RIT lost this game 3-2, but it was pretty exciting. Here’s a few pictures, there’s more in my flickr gallery.

  • RIT Hockey vs. Air Force

    The RIT Tigers made it to the Atlantic Hockey Championships vs. the Air Force Falcons. The two teams were battling for who would get the right to lose to Boston College. Unfortunately for RIT, the Falcons played much better hockey. Unfortunately for the Flacons, they lost to Boston College Eagles in the next round of Division 1 Hockey. I really wanted to see the RIT Women’s team play their championship game, but it was at the same time as the men’s game downtown. I grabbed my camera and headed downtown, only to see the Tigers get shutout 4-0. It was a good game though, and to my surprise the lighting at the Blue Cross Arena was really good for photographs. Here’s a few, more are in my RIT Hockey flickr gallery.

  • RIT Hockey vs. AIC

    This fall/winter we went to several RIT Hockey games. Fortunately for us, RIT won the majority of them. At one of the games, against AIC (American International), I brought our camera to take a few hockey pictures. As I’ve mentioned before, I think hockey is a difficult sport to photograph, because you kind of need to anticipate the action otherwise you get photos of guys skating around looking at where the action is. I took photos at this particular game because I liked the AIC Yellow Jackets team logo. Here’s a few shots, there are more in my flickr gallery.
