Brown played a spirited "practice" game at Harvard last night, dominating the play for long stretches and defeating the Crimson 3-2 in overtime.

Though there's still quite a bit of work to be done before playing Yale at Ingalls next Friday, last night's game was a good indication of what the improved Bears should be able to do this season. By and large the veteran players fulfilled expectations while several of the freshmen demonstrated that they'll be able to contribute immediately.

Among the veterans, Jack Maclellan, Chris Zaires, Jeff Buvinow and Bobby Farnham played a particularly strong game. Those of us who follow Brown hockey are well aware of Jack's, Chris's and Jeff's talent, but Farnham's game appears to have taken a quantum leap as he's learned to use his great speed more effectively.

Seven freshmen dressed for the game. In particular, Jake Goldberg seemed very comfortable on the first line, with Maclellan and Zaires, and scored the first goal of the game. Defenseman Matt Wahl played a smooth, mistake-free game. Despite an occasional mistake, defenseman Dennis Robertson was solid. His strength and heavy shot are assets. He scored the winning goal on a shot from the left circle.

Three talented first-years were unable to play: forwards Mike Jouola and Mike Borge due to injuries, and Marc-Antoine Carrier due to illness. These three freshmen should be back in the lineup pretty soon. The Bears are a little thin at the center position right now, so the return of Borge and Juola will be a plus. Though small, Carrier is an outstanding defenseman, who adds great skating ability, mobility and hockey sense to the defensive corps.

Brown used three goaltenders. Sophomore Anthony Borelli allowed two goals in the first period. Freshman Marco De Fillippo was solid in the relatively quiet second period. Junior Mike Clemente was outstanding in the third period, on a couple of occasions making the kind of outstanding saves that we've become accustomed to seeing from him.

Of course Yale isn't Harvard. The Elis are the best team in the league and arguably contenders for the national championship. Next Friday's game will be a good test of what the young Bears will be able to accomplish this year.

I noticed and was pleasantly surprised that the Friday and Saturday games are being broadcast over the internet. I trust Mike and Jack are back?

I can see that we have audio. Does anyone know if there will be any video over the internet?

Don't think there is video - there wasn't any for the road broadcasts last year.

I have the Yale All-Access package, which includes ALL M/W Hockey @ home, plus home football,etc.
I am quite certain that you can buy individual games by going onto Yale's athletic website: www.yalebulldogs.com
Good luck. Yaledoc.

I'm pretty sure that Yale is a B2/America One school. With that, a Brown broadcast would pick up the Yale video with the Brown audio. I may be way off on that, but thought that was one of the perks of having multiple schools on the same network.

Pretty excited to return to the scene of the crime. I expect Yale to come out flying... and how Brown counters that intensity and speed will be critical. Now if we could just get some late fall weather here in New England...

Bruno alerted me to the below story that was in today's Providence Journal. It's a good read!

Three-goal loss to Yale? Not surprising, though I was hoping we'd have a better defensive effort.

Anyone have pictures of the uniforms? I'm very curious as to what they look like.

Starting 1-1 is a lot better than last year's 0-7. Looking forward to posts from those of you who attended. Couple of questions: Surprised at the fresman starting in goal and stopping 28 of 29 shots? What did mcClellan do to get the misconduct? Freshmen seemed to play well - Agree?

Nice win! What do we know about the goalie? Impressive start, apparently.

Mclellan got a hit-from-behind penalty about a minute or so after the officials FAILED TO CALL a penalty against Princeton for the same type of hit. Brown did a great job killing the major penalty, and had a couple of shorthanded chances of their own.

Marco played a solid game in goal. He's a big kid, who covers a lot of net and plays angles really well.

Lot's of positives to take away from last weekend. Period by period, Brown tied 2 (first and third) and lost one (second) to Yale and went on to tie 2 (first and second) and win 1 against Princeton.
Anyone know what to expect from QU on Friday?

Hey Brown fans, a small contingent of our devout Bobcat following will be heading to Providence tomorrow. What kind of crowd are you guys expecting? Any decent bars or restaurants in the area? Any predictions for the game? Let's start some banter.
