In our position here, we haven't gone into too many games where we've been the overwhelming favorite. The bottom line is, I was a little bit worried all week, and I was hoping that our guys took the opponents seriously.
With our guys, it's different this year. We have found ways to keep winning games, and we're playing really charged and energetic.
When you have a good goalie, he can kind of keep you in games. I think their kid has done a little bit of that.
We need to get back to where we were earlier in the season. During the last three games, we have not done a very good job defensively.
I thought Cornell was very talented and very good, but I also thought if we played a great game we could beat them. I told our kids that all week, and they came out and really responded.
Princeton has had our number for a while. But we've been getting closer and closer every year to getting over the hump.
When we turned it over against Cornell, we didn't turn it over in real crucial moments.
A lot of times when you're turning the ball over, it's because you're trying to make things happen.
With a win this weekend, we can help to control our own destiny, and not put our fate into the hands of others.
If we lose this game, we're not going to the playoffs. If we win this week, we'll look very good to the committee. And if we win our next two games, we're a lock to get in.
We have a big job ahead of us on Tuesday.
