    Re: 2011-2012 UNH Wildcats

    Pretty excited for this weekend. We're going to have to play our best defensively and get some puck luck offensively. Millan has stolen games from us in the past.

    One thing that has been driving me crazy (like others have mentioned) is how bad our shooting has been. Too many people trying to pick top corners and completely missing the net on Grade A opportunities. Preston Callander was great at shooting low. During the UNH/PC game on CBSC they had a segment on PC Coach, Nate Lehman. Before warm ups he was speaking to the team, "Make sure you hit the net during warm ups. A player who misses the net during warm ups is clearly not focused." Pretty meaningful quote. I don't know what other people notice during warm ups... but yeah.

    Finally, any old time UNH fans might be interested in something I stumbled upon on Ebay

    What helped you figure out the lack of scorers... the 0 goals on the maddening number of shots off net?

    I has been a rough year, they just don’t have any snipers. They grind well and they are now passing well in most games, but they cannot finish. It seems the pucks are either wide all night or right into the goalie. At least when they are hitting the goalie there is a chance he fumbles the puck and it gets in the net. My personal favorite play is the screaming shot of net that goes wide short side and rockets around the boards and out of zone, it is a bonus play the goalie doesn’t need to make a save and as a bonus the defense doesn’t need to clear the puck or worry about an icing.

    Satuday's game is on NESN at 4. Hopefully Downing is back for it, and can find a way to put the puck in the net, loved the effort in Orono not just need to finish. Never know what can happen taking 2 is a huge task, but I am not counting the boys out

    Sidelined with a groin injury, according to Fosters

    Goal scoring has clearly been a problem, unlike in past years, and goaltending (in the first half) was also deficient. It's just been a down year. And regarding "#5" (Eric Knodel,) if his hands were up all night, where's the harm? The guy is 6' - 6" tall! Don't know how tall Diamond-in-the-Rough is, but I doubt it's close.

    (Also, it was good to see UNH play with better precision and passion. If only a couple of our chances had gone in...but still, I'll take the effort any day.)

    Not sure why you would expect something else. It took Maine OT to defeat UNH at Fenway. I think UNH will give BU a tough time.

    UNH lost all three of their PWR points this weekend, so will begin the post-season with zero. When was the last time that happened? The Cats also will need to win it all to reach a 20-win season. But, I will be happy with continued good play at Agganis this coming weekend.

    Edit: oops, they only need to get to the Frozen Four to reach 20 wins for the season.

    Somewhat disappointed in the outcome but not at all in the effort. To hold Maine to a single, fluky goal; keep their PP unit (#1 in the country) scoreless, while playing on the road in a charged atmosphere, and in a game that meant more to Maine than it did to us, makes me feel pretty good right now. Good job, 'Cats.

    When was the last time Maine won the season series w/ UNH? The regular season is what its all about, right? That's it for me. Enjoy the unfamiliar territory.

    Only if his name is spelled b-i-g-o-s. Anyways, by the sounds of it on the radio, UNH probably should have won. I'd wish you luck the rest of the way but, I'm not a liar.
