bangor daily news called it a "minor head injury"

mild concussion? who knows.... it's ridiculous.... will be interesting to see if bertagna reviews it and gives any supplemental discipline in addition to the DQ Agreed on the part this should be looked into by the League if Nyquist is out because of it...and NOT just because it's Nyquist but if any Player from any Team gets that done it should be looked at...imo.

According to many here on this thread, the league only takes action when Jack Parker tells them to.

Bigos has been a buffoon for a while now. Nothing new here. I laughed when I saw he got DQed. Hope Merrimack gets smoked again tonight. Would help out BC and will maybe keep Timmay around for a few more years (and we might see some "Maine's back!" headlines around here tomorrow morning for the 11th time in the last 11 months which is always a hoot).

The box score said game dsq...Where can I find the box score on-line? USCHO only puts up the scores, not the full box score.

@Carmine: I'll be here to point and laugh.

I see an internet meme in the making. Pulling a Whitehead = losing when it matters for the team, but winning when it matters for you.

not sure if there is any news, but y understanding is that he skated off under his own power... i think he didn't return b/c the game was in hand and merrimack was gooning it up...

He did skate off under his own power. He was definitely out of it for a while, but when he came to, he was able to get up and skate off in a fairly short amount of time. The one time I've had a head injury - crashed while cycling w/o helmet - everything went blank, and when I came to, a bunch of people were standing around me, looking down. I was able to get right up and walk off, but I was definitely out for a few moments, and I wasn't really right for about 24 hours.

Great Game !! Thought the team really gelled by giving it back and not being intimidated. So un-timmy like. Also the team took it in stride beating the the #4 team in the country as if they were definately superior !! A real confidense booster. Amazing what a couple of key saves by Sully can do for a team !

You're absolutely right, Maine was not intimidated. The team rallied around one another and came in to defend their team mates on every skirmish, particularly when Nyquist took that "cheap shot" from Bigos.

Not to mention, Bertagna will blabber some crap like "the referee already assessed the harshest penalty he could, he made the correct call, so no further discipline is required".

makes you wonder, when the team can put in such an effort like they did last night, just how good they could be. And why we haven't seen that sort of display more often. Funny how we always seem to get one in the last couple weeks of the season, like last year in the HE tourney.

This may be true. I don't think it's intentional but I think he coaches better when he has a fire lit under his *****. I think we may have seen a better season this year if he hadn't been resigned and had to worry about getting rehired by the results of this season.

So tonight's game is going to be filled with ticky tac penalties, so I doubt there will be much flow to this game. Not sure who that favors but we'll see.

We talked to him in the locker room after the game and he didn't seem to have any symptoms of a concussion. He didn't talk to us for very long since I'm sure the doctors were going to run some tests to determine whether he plays tonight.

My guess is that he plays tonight...

For someone who didn't see the game..........

Was Merimmack that bad or was Maine that good?

The AD saw it.:D Titled the Decline of Maine hockey, bunch of stats showing how the team has failed to perform in the 2nd half for the last 4 years. Says how much attendance has declined and what its cost the U. Last, they gave a letter to sign and date, envelope with ADs office address on it. I saw 2 college guys passing them out, they had 1000's in thier boxes so anyone who wanted one got one.
