    Re: Dogs v/s Cats (UNH/NU Fri 10/23)

    Don't know if this is accurate, but the NU athletic website is reporting that the UNH-NU gm from last night will be replayed today at Noon on the NHL Network.. (for those that have it).

    So, for you UNH fans out there.. something to watch & feel good about, before your Maine gm. And as far as Husky fans.. well, something to watch (players included).. and er.. improvise

    Watched on NESN. Defense was pretty bad, did not get in passing lanes or block shots, also did not clear men in front of the net. Rawlings still can't move laterally in net. If they don't figure this out, I think we're in for a long season.

    That was nothing compared to the chorus line during the national anthem. I counted at least 5 NU players bobbing back and forth...in unison. I was more impressed than offended.

    And good luck the rest of the way, I like NU and their scrappiness. I don't know much about them compared to last year (other than not having the best goaltender on the planet in net), but Cronin's done a good job at putting a solid team together.

    Good effort all around by the Cats tonight. Defense was solid, they actually scored 2 on the PP and Foster was as good as he's played all year. 8 penalties is way too many and they have to get that figured out....soon. Nice for freshman Dalton Speelman to get his first two goals as a Wildcat tonight. Butler and Sislo with the other markers. Nice that they could carry over the solid effort from last Saturday over to tonight. Would be nice to lay a beating on Maine tomorrow night and make it a 2-0 weekend and start to the conference sked.

    I thought Rawlings played pretty well too.
    I didn't see any reason for him to be ON the ice as soon as the power play started. You're down 2 goals, slim chance you'll score 2 goals in the last 2.5 minutes, why not take a chance and pull the goalie, get the extra skater right away? If UNH scores to make it 5-2, who cares?

    That said, NU came out strong and put a lot of pressure on, but UNH's defense actually did a good job keeping the puck away from the slot. Best defensive effort so far for UNH, and I really like the group of forwards. Keep it rollin' tomorrow night against Maine...

    no one was giving Rawlings any instructions on what to do for that powerplay. Pretty disappointing on NU's part. 1 for 8 on the powerplay with only 8 shots. the system may have worked against bentley but it's not going to work against HE teams. time to change it up IMO. Rawlings didn't actually look that bad. A few long rebounds here and there but he made some good saves. The 2nd goal should have seen the d-men clearing people out of the front and the 3rd goal was one of those super low percentage shots that got the lucky bounce off of his pads. Hopefully they realize that they need to take at least 2 points out of this weekend and step it up tomorrow at Tsongas.

    Game's not over yet!

    But when it is, I'll be curious, why the hell didn't Cronin pull Rawlings with a power play and just over 2 minutes to go? Seems stupid to me.

    Tough gm to watch.. seemed like the puck just did not settle on the NU stick.

    Regardless, better team on the ice won tonight.

    We have to control the 'too many men on the ice' penalties.. (back-to-back..what a killer). Score in the last 5 mins could've been 3-2 v/s 4-2 going into the final stretch.

    Rawlings did not look that bad, save a few big rebounds.
    Our offense looked a bit anemic. Part of that was due good UNH defense.. the other part?..

    Work to be done, no doubt. Lowell next..

    Just arrived at unh... We still have 40 minutes but so far NU has about... A dozen fans. Hopefully the rest are stuck in traffic?

    Another note- apparently NU sold us tickets to the february 2010 game... They fixed it no problem... Weird...

    Here's to hoping we don't only have a handfull of fans show up on NESN!

    Edit: people are starting to trickle on now... Hey I'll take a win over a good crowd, but both would be nice.

    Seriously You should have said: "due to construction, the only lot is West Edge, and if you don't get there before 5:30, you will miss the shuttle and have to walk to the arena"

    CBG was right, it's getting out that's the issue.

    Spots to try first that empty quicker than lot A: Field House lower lot (halfway up the hill, if you're coming from out by Route 4).

    Nesmith Lot -- it's across the street from the Whit, but you enter it from College Road (the road that intersects with Main St at the lights in front of the Whit). There's also a scattering of meters across the street, if you can get in one.

    Just, make sure you read the signs; otherwise, you'll contribute $50 to my paycheck.
