Last night, #12 Colgate upset #5 RPI 2-1 in a double overtime thriller at Houston Field House in Troy, NY. Colgate sophomore forward Robbie Bourdon shot the puck from the half boards that went through two sets of players from each team and hit under the cross bar to lift the water bottle and send Colgate to the ECAC Hockey Quarterfinals.
