    Re: UNH Wildcats 2012-2013 Season Thread

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! We needed that win -- very strong performance tonight by UNH.

    I've long had this theory, based upon admittedly unscientific observations, that in a 2-game home and home series, the visiting team usually has the better game on the 1st night, and the home team turns the tables on the following. I know this is somewhat counterintuitive -- one would think the visiting team is sluggish after the travel, and the home team is strong. Maybe I look for results that validate my theory, casual though it may be, but this weekend supports it.

    Good effort all around, and DeSmith earned the shutout. Nice goal by Willows, and a superb weekend for Henrion! Looking forward to attending the Maine game on Friday, and possibly Saturday.

    Mission Accomplished.

But I really don't see them finishing any higher than 5th, as they have the toughest remaining schedule, by far. Mind you, I'd love to see them peg BC back this afternoon, but let's face it, it's not very likely.

    As to the whole "peaking too soon" thing ... if there was ANY sign that UNH was approaching a "peak", I'd agree 100%. Unfortunately, for those who stereotype the "Cats as "Champions of November", this year's edition has done little (so far) to counter that reputation. All I'm looking for is a sign they can pull that off, but if you can't get any significant traction against three of the also-rans in the conference (and 1-0-2 halfway through is hardly impressive) down the RS stretch, I struggle to see where they suddenly discover that form the following weekend, going forward against even stiffer competition.

    You know I'm pulling for the right things to happen, but if I'm being honest, I'm not seeing it so far. Let's hope a spark emerges in these last few RS games.
    Providence has concerned me as a UNH fan since just before the 2nd time we played them this year (and we lost, despite a heroic near-comeback.)
    I'll say it again -- PC is about the last team that I'd like to see us play in the 1/4s (at least, of those teams which are possible opponents.) Gillies is good, and BIG in net.

    First things first: let's have a convincing win tonight.

    EDIT: BC isn't feeling so hot right now either. Unusual for a York team of this millennium to have a poor outing this late in the season. Usually, they are cranking it up about now.

    So far so good (PC 1 BC 0 after one) ... and lest we forget, BU is back in the mix (2 pts. behind 1st, one point behind UNH), with an even easier remaining schedule than UNH. Talk about coming in under the radar (BU). So ANY points dropped from here on out are dangerous ones, by ANY of the top six.

    You could very well be right. My point is that if BC and/or Lowell drops 2 or 3 points to Providence I don't see how the Eagles and/or River Hawks finish 1-2...it doesn't seem mathematically likely. (But then again, my SAT scores werent that great in math.)

    I could see PC finishing 4th (or higher) but it seems to me that from a math standpoint that increases the odds that UNH finishes first or second.
