Laliberte return quite likely, Neal's highly unlikely

One by one it seems, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's hockey team is getting healthy. Now the Engineers' need to do so on the scoreboard, in the 'W' column.
One of the two prized freshmen forwards who've been sidelined with injuries, Jacob Laliberte, will return to the lineup Friday night against Yale.
Matt Neal, almost certainly, will not.
Laliberte's finger injury has healed to the point where he can play, while Neal's ankle injury still has a ways to go.
"Jacob looks like he'll be back," RPI coach Seth Appert said after today's practice.
"Matt Neal, I'd say, is very highly doubtful. But almost. We're getting there."
The two freshmen, who were counted on to be among RPI's top few scorers, have both missed five games.
The 1-8-0 Engineers have lost seven straigt games and have totaled five goals in those seven games.
Appert continues to say he's "not worried about the offense...we just need to get healthy."
The Engineers host Brown on Saturday night and Union on Tuesday night.
