Every team, with the exception of Harvard and Dartmouth, will be playing at least one game this weekend, but only six teams will be competing in conference contests.
It's that weird time of the year where you look at the league standings and cannot really judge them because of games-played disparities. Dartmouth and Harvard have played eight conference games already while Yale, Brown, Union and Rensselaer have only played four.
This week's notes features a few videos from around the league, beginning with a behind-the-scenes tour of Cornell's Lynah Rink:
Another off-the-ice video comes from Union College, where the men's hockey team served Thanksgiving dinner to some Schenectady residents:
RPI won its own holiday tournament last weekend with an overtime goal against Bowling Green:
And the last video comes from this weekend's opponent, Quinnipiac, a promo for the series with St. Lawrence and Clarkson:
Lastly, some tidbits from around the league: Brown has a four-game unbeaten streak (2-0-2) after tying New Hampshire and Boston last week. ... Colgate's Brian Day became the 33rd player in school history to record 50 goals last Tuesday against Niagara. He's six points shy of 100 for his career. ... Cornell's 4-3 win over Colgate on Saturday was the 300th career victory for coach Mike Schafer. The Big Red is 11 victories shy of becoming the 17th program to win 1,000 career games. ... Union's power play has scored in 11 of 12 games this season and is converting at a 37 percent clip. The Dutchmen have also gotten off to hot starts, outscoring the opposition 18-4 in the first period. ... Yale's Broc Little has scored at least one point in every game so far this season.
