The Big Green will take on Colgate Friday night and Cornell Saturday in two of the toughest arenas for visiting teams in the league. Coming into the weekend, Dartmouth sits atop the conference standings with eight points and a 4-0-0 mark. ▶ IN THE POLLS USCHO: After two weeks of receiving votes in the USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll, the Big Green finally broke into the top-20 and in a big way. Dartmouth’s weekend sweep of Rensselaer and No. 8 Union propelled the team up nine spots to No. 12 in the nation, the largest jump of any team. The No. 12 ranking is also the highest position for the Green and White since October 2004 when it held the same spot in the preseason polls. USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine: Dartmouth also owns the No. 12 spot in the other major college hockey poll. The Big Green picked up nine votes a week ago, but moved up seven spots in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll to match its USCHO.com counterpart. ▶ REWIND Dartmouth completed back-to-back weekend home sweeps to finish its first homestand of 2012-13 with a 4-0 mark. Most recently, the Green shutout RPI, 4-0, and held off a late comeback bid by No. 8 Union to earn the 3-2 win on Saturday. big green ▶OCTOBER (1-0-1) 20 McGILL (Exhibition) 21 NORWICH (Scrimmage) 26 vs. Yale! 27 @ Brown! ▶NOVEMBER (4-0) 2 RV YALE*^ 3 BROWN*^ 9 RENSSELAER* 10 No. 7/8 UNION* ▶16 @ Colgate* ▶17 @ No.10/10 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 / Patrick.Salvas@Dartmouth.edu ▶ LAST ONE STANDING After Princeton knocked off Cornell Friday night and the Big Green took care of business against the Engineers, only Dartmouth remained as the lone team in Division I without a loss. That unbeaten streak to start the season continued Saturday with the one-goal win against the visiting Dutchmen. ▶ STILL SCORING Junior Eric Robinson continues to score at a record pace. In each of the team’s six games, the winger and Foxborough, Mass., native has managed to find the back of the net at least once. His seven goals thus far (scoring twice against Yale on Nov. 3) give him 1.17 goals per game, good for the top mark in the nation. After scoring the first three game winners of the season, Robinson didn’t net a GWG this weekend, but still ranks second in the country and first in the league with his trifecta. Robinson led the team in goals with 12 all of 2011-12 in 34 games played. ▶ PASS HAPPY After 14 assists in his first season, sophomore Tyler Sikura is already half way to that total through just six games in 2012-13. Sikura picked up three more helpers this weekend to bring his team-leading total to seven. His 1.17 assists per game rank second in the country and first among all ECAC Hockey players.
