Inept timekeeping, part 1. BC scored on a 5-on-3 and they took the wrong penalty off the board. No one noticed at first, the player was let out, until the referees were notified. Then they couldn't figure out how much time to put on the penalty. I am pretty sure they left too much time on it, but oh well. Not every day you see a player head to the penalty box from the bench and have 1:23 of penalty time put up on the board. [2048x1536]

Both teams scored in the first. [2048x1536]

Late in the second, BC has a lead but has two men in the box, including one on a major. [2048x1536]

Cornell got one on the 5-on-3. The puck is about to cross the line here. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

In the third, BC regains the lead. [2048x1536]

And now it's up to Cornell to kill a 5-on-3. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

Once again, we had inept timekeeping. During a Cornell power play, the timekeeper just didn't start the clock. The BC bench was making a lot of noise and finally got the referee's attention. They ran off time to make up for it, but I think it was too little. I hope they never let these people run a scoreboard again. [2048x1536]

Now nearing the end, Cornell needs one to tie and they have a power play chance to do it. [2048x1536]

But BC scores a shorthanded empty-netter. [2048x1536]

Still some power play time for Cornell. [2048x1536]

But these people will have none of it. I have never seen so many people get up and run to the exits as I saw after an empty netter. Not even at RPI. And that's saying something. They also announced attendance at over 7000, but there's no way it was even close. The good seats filled in a bit more for the second game, but they were still well over half-empty. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

After another penalty, Cornell actually had a 6-on-3 skating advantage but couldn't score. [2048x1536]

Game over. [2048x1536]
