Tiesling negates a PP for retaliation and then Kennedy gets ejected for "kneeing" when we're about to get a PP leading to a Ferris State PP goal. Not okay.

The knee was a quality call. That being said, the officials have been terrible tonight. Not that calls or non-calls are an excuse for chippy play, but they have completely lost control of this game.

I'm so sick of watching this team shoot themselves in the foot with penalties. This is going to be a very long year...

As a ferris follower and at the game. Miami has nothing to worry about. They are a young squad with big upside and will find their stride. Taylor Nelson and Cj Motte are both very very good goalies with Motte leading the naton in G.AA and Taylor being 5th, that being said i felt Ferris did a good job of keeping guys like Smith and Trent V(however you spell his last name) to the outside and really were able to limit any big time scoring chances for Miami. Biggs is a heck of a player and being only a freshmen he has a lot of upside not saying this because he was 1st rounder but he is just plain good, i feel like once he becomes more physical and less finesse he will be dominant. With all the hype and the high expectations for this season Miami fans keep forgetting Miele and Camper and there 128 points are gone from last year and that is almost impossible to replace, just like us Ferris fans since we keep winning it's an easy to forget we lost Nagle and Redmond just to name a few guys. All in all as a Ferris fan and being 6-0 words can't explain how happy i am. But if i were a Redhawk fan i would be down for now, always tough to be swept but the Redhawks have a ton of talent and i expect them to be right up near the top of the CCHA standings come play off time.

Ugh, this has been a bad weekend for my teams. Hockey gets swept, football lost in Toledo, United ran out.

I need a beer...

It's a new team and a new year. No Cam Schilling last night so that didn't help us defensively. Between the PK troubles and defensive shakiness, the bottom line is goaltending. Ferris got it last night and we didn't.

I wouldn't necessarily say that the bottom line is goaltending although it was a major problem in the FSU series. After talking to a few of the players I know and watching/listening to the game I think it's a trust issue more than anything among the defensive line thats killing us so far this year.

I don't know if I am the only one that notices but Hartman is constantly directing everyone else on the ice instead of paying attention to his own game and getting things done. Weber plays better when Hartman and him are on the same line (which hasn't happened as often this year). Wideman is pretty versatile and very focused - I'd say that he is our best defenseman. And Czarnik looks promising but isn't always where he needs to be. Spinell looks especially solid this year. And I'm sorry, but I think Kennedys only goal this year is to hit more people than walls this time around. I think a lot of the teams issues will be solved if the defense learns to trust each other and work on their "chemistry" as Rico would say.

Welcome to the board!

Hartman might be doing a lot of "directing" as you say, but as a leader on a club full of young players, I'd expect my upper-class-laden defensive corps to do just that. That said, you're right, it's certainly not all goaltending, but Reichard and Knapp are FOUR-YEAR SENIORS. I cannot emphasize that enough. They have to be better than the other guy every night because we aren't going to outscore teams as in past years...at least not right now.

I'm just going to blame the Jackets' stop in Oxford for our early season woes, no good was going to come of our players being around that sort of losing culture.

:rolleyes:

Other than the several occasions this weekend where we were burned or beaten one-on-one, I think our defense has actually been decent this year. The best defense is a good offense. When we start to establish an offensive rhythm our defense should be fine.

Now, I wonder who this could be...welcome aboard!

He really should rethink that goal, it has far less entertainment potential.

Despite the fact I'm a Blue Jackets fan I had to laugh at that. I agree maybe the CBJ brought a little of their losing culture to Miami....from what I saw at Sky Box the Miami boys were sure following their lead :) And thank you all for the welcome.

I wonder if any of the guys on my NHL team would take a trip to Oxford to offset any bad juju from the Columbus Hackets....

We have the 4th highest payroll! it doesn't make sense! As long as the CBJ don't move to canada it's all fun and games.

I have mixed expectations for this weekend but mostly I just want them to play with some discipline. We pretty much compete shorthanded. Also, Biggs is the most physically dominant player on the ice, I'd love to see him use that energy crashing the net not messing around after the whistle. Don't know if he's bought in to the whole college hockey thing yet.

Well with my Caps off to their own very fast start (I can't actually bring myself to say the "P" word for fear of jinxing it), I am going to hold off on my Cup tickets until we get to April. The Caps have more than once torn through the regular season like the best team ever, just to fall in the 1st Round.

If they can get Vokoun to play like he has started then they will be real tough to beat. Pounded Detroit the other night.

Really would like to see a complete 120 minute weekend here to get back on track. Homecoming weekend too. I send my best from California. Wish I could have made it out
