At this week's NCAA DIII Frozen Four in Lake Placid I'll be cheering on Geneseo, something that I'd never thought I'd say in 23 seasons of being a Brockport hockey fan. But these guys are something special to get this far after having a teammate (Jay Stephanik) see his career come to an end in November due to a traumatic brain injury and, then, losing their beloved Matt Hutchinson to murder in January. You often hear the term "team of destiny" bandied about in sports conversations -- Geneseo's hockey team might be one of them. If you don't believe in that sort of hooey, they surely are the definition of a "team", playing as one and overcoming adversity. Good luck, Ice Knights -- you truly deserve to be champions
