Umile does well to put them in position but often he or the team (you decide) lack that big game mentality when it matters.

    Or is it just a case of you are what the scoreboard says you are. You could make a case that Umile has gotten his teams to overachieve over the years. When you hit the playoffs the real you magically emerges with more on the line(see one and done!). JMHO

    Or sell student tickets but put them all over the building instead of in one section together (Manch regional vs Notre Dame).

    So many good teams in Hockey East this year, and one of them will more than likely get screwed on selection Sunday.

As I said earlier it wasn't going to be a cake walk for UNH in these games and that proved out last night. UNH does what they have to do and wins tonight though.
    even a broken clock is right twice a day

    Residence Halls re-open Sunday March 17 so students won't be on campus until a potential 3rd playoff game. Many students will attend Maine Friday, a few less Saturday. The Whitt will be much quieter for the playoffs. One point needed to secure home ice.

    They do. I went to the game last night at UML -- very strong team (physically as well as skillwise), as evidenced by their impressive run. Not that 'Mack played badly -- it was 0-0 for at least 1/2 of the game, which was really a 2-0 win for UML with a couple ENGs when the Warriors were down 2-0 and then 3-0. (I'm also glad we own the season series with UML -- proof that every game counts, even those in November. )

    Tomorrow's game should be entertaining: UML playing for 1st place (tie or win,) and MC playing to edge back closer to Home Ice position in the 1/4s. (Man, how HE has changed, and for the better: given that the 1-6 place standings are still capable ((indeed, it's more than likely) of being completely rejiggered a couple times between now and next Saturday night, it's hard to conceive of a more interesting and exciting way to end the season, no matter what team one roots for in HE (and even NU can play the spoiler next week.)

    I believe the students will be on campus for quarterfinals this year so that will bump up the numbers, I think next week may be some crap attendances as the kids are on break (believe dorms lock up before the game starts on Friday) and the puck drops at 4:00 on Saturday.

    Seriously, that is why I'm hoping to host either Maine or BU...to at least make the quarters somewhat interesting...I've been a fan for decades but I'm not sure I want to pony up upwards of fifty bucks to see a snoozefest with UVM or UMass....
    I see both Maine and BU as likely to send their pep band for quarters and would rather not have them firing their fans up (of which they do a very good job, generally).

The 4-0(I think) loss to Michigan(Michigan went on to win it all that year) in the Boston regional in the late nineties and the 7-2 loss to Maine in the NCAA semis in Minneapolis in the ealrly 2000's.
    RIT, HE semis vs UMass in 2004 (2-1 UNH through 2 periods, gave up 4 goals in last 13 minutes of the third), BU in the Hockey East quarters last year... (4-1 lead with 4 minutes left in the 2nd).

    Somebody up there likes us. BC with some very un-BC-like play down the stretch ... BU getting waxed at home by UVM , which means the Catamounts have almost punched their playoff ticket now ... IF Merrimack can win tomorrow against UM-L, then slots 2-6 have all pretty much ended up treading water over the weekend, and UNH's three (3) points gets them to the top of the heap. But it still rests with Lowell, arguably the hottest team in the country. And amazingly, if they slip up even a little, UNH has the tiebreaker over them decisively, having swept the season series when UML was sleepwalking through the Fall.

    I'm happy with a #1 or #2 seed, so if you look at it that way, then yeah UNH is either in the driver's seat, or at least in the passenger's seat.

    Should be a great atmosphere at The Whitt next weekend. Team deserves all the support we can give 'em for a surprisingly good season!!

    Completely different UNH team tonight compared to last night. They appeared energized and focused from the drop of the puck. Henrion rightly so earned player of the game for the hat trick. DeSmith was solid tonight with a great defense on the PK. Accolades should also be given to Thrush for his 3 assists. Let's keep the momentum going for next weekend's big series with Maine.
