    I'm sure some students who live in off-campus housing are coming back this weekend, since classes start on Tuesday (1/24), but the dorms aren't open until this Sunday.

    Not shaking hands after the game doesn't sound familiar to me.. I feel like they always do regardless..but I suppose I'm not paying the most attention to the process.

    Really excited about the W last night. Let's keep this train rolling through tonight! One game at a time. Think Umile will go with the same line up? I'd like to see Thrush get some more time with Borisenok and McCarey (as I've mentioned previously).


    Are students back yet?

    Just transferring a discussion from the BU thread regarding handshakes. Hokydad mentioned that they didn't shake hands after the UNH/MC game last night, and suggested that this was the norm on the first game of a 2 games weekend series, and I'm positive that's not the case in Hockey East (it was brought up because allegedly Lehman pulled PC off the ice before the handshake last night against BU?) I asked if he was sure they didn't shake hands at Lawler last night...

    one game series they do, if it is a 2 game weekend series they usually do after 2nd game....They will shake hands tonight
    The PC coach is a class act and wouldn't disrespect anyone.
    I suggested that I've been watching Hockey East games since the early 90's and I can't ever remember a game, first or 2nd on the weekend, that they didn't shake hands unless there was reason to believe an incident would happen (and sometimes, PC, UML) an incident DID happen....

    Can anyone confirm that they did not shake hands after the game? I find it hard to believe... and if that's the case, it's certainly a new thing...

    y'know, except that 34ish game unbeaten streak

I thought last night that their only chance to win was to get ahead early and force Merrimack to open it up a little. Aided and abetted by several power plays in the second, UNH did just that. Although it was frustrating to see them try to work the puck in the second, particularly on the 5-on-3, I was pretty impressed with the way they kept Merrimack at bay in the third. Merrimack is not particularly fast, they beat you with their size and Cannata. I thought UNH did a good job of keeping the Merrimack forwards away from the shooting lanes. Having some size on the blueline definitely helped the cause. And DeSmith was rock solid on the several scrums in the crease. I feel bad for DiGi, being a senior and returning starter, but the team is definitely playing with more purpose in front of DeSmith. Be curious to see if the effort can be duplicated tonight on the bigger sheet.

    Merrimack has three wins since Thanksgiving, UNH has three wins in the last ten days. Gotta feel good about the chances for a sweep.

    Just reading the box score, seems like the biggest win of the season for the Cats. First time that they have had any PWR points (4, for tie at 29th) since their win streak back in November. A couple more wins on Saturday night and/or next weekend would be nice.

    "He (Stevie Moses) probably gets more scoring opportunities than anybody in the league," Umile said. "You've got to give him credit for creating that. He's so darn quick and he anticipates. He steals pucks from people. He gets a lot of takeaways."
