Weekend series against Ohio

Hello all of you Icer fans out there. We have some bad news. As I stated on Wednesday's Sin Bin, Ray and I will be unable to call this weekend's series because Bird Arena doesn't have the necessary setup for us. It is rather unfortunate as we were hoping to bring you the coverage of the Icers you have come to know and love. I will be at the games however, so on Monday's Sin Bin you can hear all about the exciting weekend, and hopefully, an Icers sweep.

The Sin Bin 2/8/06

Tonights Sin Bin is for the Podcast listeners only. There has been trouble around the NHL as Rick Tocchet was linked to an illegal gambling ring. Listen as The Grinder and The Playmaker discuss the situation, along with an update on the upcoming Olympic games, and the upcoming series between the #2 Icers and the #3 Ohio Bobcats.

Icers vs Rhode Island Rams 2/4/2006

After having their 17-game winning streak snapped on Friday night, the Icers looked to get back to their winning ways. Coach Battista's team had to shake off the heartbreak of having Friday's game tied in the last 2 seconds of regulation before losing in OT. Tune in to find out if the #1 Icers were finally able to beat #2 URI for the first time in six tries.

Icers vs. Rhode Island Rams 2/3/06

The #1 Penn State Icers faced off against the 2nd ranked University of Rhode Island Rams on Friday night in a battle of ACHA elite teams. A low scoring affair between the two teams came down to the wire and was decided in overtime after a questionable goal by the Rams with 2 seconds left in the 3rd period that sent the game to OT. Join Ray Schmitt and myself for the broadcast from the Greenberg Ice Pavilion.
