Wins over Yale (74) and Brown (2-1) have the team at 3-0-1 and sitting tied atop the ECAC Hockey standings along with Union at 2-0-0 in league play. The sweep of the Bulldogs and Bears also has Dartmouth ranked ahead of five other teams in the Ivy League campaign. ▶ MR. OCTOBER/NOVEMBER Junior Eric Robinson has started the season on a tear with five goals in the first four games for a nation-leading 1.25 goals per contest. His goals have also come at just the right time as he has three game winners (also good for tops in the country) and a game-tying goal. His scoring has been the difference this year in all four of Dartmouth’s outings. His three powerplay markers are also the second most in the country to this point. ▶ WEEKLY HONOR Robinson was tabbed as the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon after big green ▶OCTOBER 20 McGILL (Exhibition) 21 NORWICH (Scrimmage) 26 vs. Yale! 27 @ Brown! ▶NOVEMBER 2 RV YALE*^ 3 BROWN*^ ▶9 RENSSELAER* ▶10 No. 7/8 UNION* 16 @ Colgate* 17 @ Cornell*^ 24 @ Boston College GAME ▶SCHEDULE GAME Hanover, N.H. • Alumni Gymnasium • Thompson Arena • Assistant Director / Men’s Ice Hockey Contact: Pat Salvas • Office: (603) 646-9340 / his strong four-point weekend. He became the first Dartmouth player to receive the conference’s top weekly honor since Dustin Walsh was named the recipient last November following a Dartmouth sweep of Quinnipiac and Princeton in the league-opening weekend. ▶ SIKURA LEADS AGAIN After a freshman season that saw him tie Doug Jones for the team lead in scoring with 25 points (11g/14a), Tyler Sikura has continued to elevate his game as a sophomore in 2012-13. Sikura has a team-leading seven points on three goals and four helpers. His 1.75 points per game rank fifth in the nation, while his 1.0 assists per clip are eighth. ▶ YOU LIKE NUMBERS? Following Cornell’s tie with Colgate, no team in the country remained with only wins to its credit, meaning that computer polls could come into play. The polls are published to try and mimic the formula used by the NCAA Selection Committee in determining the 16team national tournament. In all three systems (PairWise, RPI, KRACH), Dartmouth was listed as the top team, something that means almost nothing at this point in the season. ▶ IN THE POLLS With the sweep of Yale and Brown and a 3-01 record to their credit, the Big Green made another improvement in the national polls this week. Although still on the outside looking in, Dartmouth went from 15 votes in last week’s USCHO poll to 102 and rank as the highest rated
