    I don't think the Friday game is going to be in jeopardy. According to forecasts, there will only be about 1-3 inches on the ground by game time, so I think that we should be able to drop th epuck no problem there. UConn might have trouble getting back to Storrs though and Saturday is going to be a mess, so I'm thinking that game would be moved to Sunday at worst case. If they think the roads are REALLY bad, they might move the game to Tuesday.

      Podcastable deliciousness discussing college hockey (and the NHL).

                  All season long we've been preaching patience, patience, patience. Well, I think the time for patience is starting to run out. Yes, Bentley is within points, still, of a first round bye, but they can't lose a game the rest of the way. By the math I've seen, Bentley needed to 6-1-1 in the last 8 games, assuming they'd lose to Army. Fact remains that the conference is very strong this year, and the Falcons simply aren't the top-tier team. That's not to say they aren't good because they've shown us the talent levels they possibly could have.

                  But at the same time, we can't sit back and say that this team is what we thought they'd be. We thought they'd have 20 wins and a first round bye. That's not going to happen. They still can finish over .500 but AIC is proving they're not a pushover either. I'm concerned of finishing 10th and having to go to RIT in the first round.

                  All this said, I find it amazing that Bentley has been, all year, an inconsistent team. They can't win games unless they score 4 or 5 goals. But they can't rely on that type of offense. They have to prove they can win 2-1 or 3-2 hockey games on a regular basis, and they need to show that they can defeat teams other than AIC and Sacred Heart on a regular basis. Honestly, they need to WIN tonight, and they need to beat Army senselessly next weekend. They can't lose a game the rest of the way.

                  Maybe this is me hitting the panic button as a fan, but I find it very real that Bentley could end up as the 7 seed just as likely as they could the 10 seed.

                      Better late than never... I'm sure most on here disregarded me as a pessimist a few months ago. Fact is- the only constants in Bentley's D1 hockey history have consistently helped the team be inconsistent. To expect anything greater in the long run is a fantasy

                        But, your main point was that the coaching is deficient, and I do not think that is the problem. That said, I really do not know what the problem is the second half of this season.

                          Players come and go every 4 years. Sometimes you get scorers, great goalies, defenseman, etc, but regardless, they are all in and out in 4 years. Soderquist has been there throughout. Here we are 10+ years into his career, and still wondering why every year, the team is inconsistent. If you refuse to put that on the coach, then you should probably get a little more comfortable with 12-15 win seasons

                              Well, the game tonight must be an all-time low for the Bentley program. I put the blame squarely on PK Specialist.

                                It is sad to see an almost immediate regression by the Falcons here. With them, it was two steps forward/one step back before this malaise; now it's just the reverse.
