    Assuming that you're a Pats fan, when I was stationed in DC (1998-2001), Murphy's in Old Town, Alexandria was a Pats bar (upstairs).

    Excellent venue to watch the game last night! Hopefully we will get a great crew together to celebrate the downfall of UMaine hockey in two weeks!

    I thought the team looked pretty good last night controlling most of the play. However, DeSmith seemed to struggle a bit last night giving up 3 goals on only 14 shots. If DeSmith makes the saves he's capable of making, then UVM never really gets any momentum and it would have been more of a dominate win by UNH. Either way, I'm happy with the win. Hoping DeSmith pulls out a stellar performance tonight and we come away with another victory!

    Hard to believe that after a couple of months of decidedly mediocre and inconsistent hockey, UNH has found themselves in an enviable position looking at this closing stretch of games. I give them a ton of credit for earning the tie last weekend at BC (BTW - speaking of "decidedly mediocre and inconsistent", what's up with them?), and they may not have been at their best last night either, but they still found a way to grind out a road victory against a UVM squad that's been playing well as they battle for one of the final two playoff seedings. If they can double up and get another win today, they'd be no worse than tied for first at the end of this weekend (albeit with BC and Merrimack still having a game in hand), and they'd be looking at finishing up the regular season with four home games.

    Perhaps even more importantly, the first two of those games are against UMass-Amherst, who right now is the team with the worst form in the league (besides Northeastern), and could be riding a six-game losing streak by this time tomorrow. The biggest concern of these last six games would/should be with UMaine, and by the time UNH faces them in the final weekend, they (UMaine) could be locked into 7th place, as they have three games between now and then with UMass-Amherst (tonight), and two home games next weekend against Northeastern. So UMaine may have very little to play for on that final regular season weekend.

    I'm far from sold on UNH's postseason chances, but I do think they have overachieved so far this season. Even in the games they've dropped - except for that January home game against Providence and the first BC road game - they have been competitive, and they have not backed off. In retrospect, some of those losses have been against some pretty strong opposition (thinking Merrimack and the far-too-underrated Providence). I have no doubt at this point UNH will take one of the home-ice seeds, but with the way some of the teams in the chasing pack currently in the middle of the HE standings are playing, it's important to get at least one of the top two seeds. And while a regular season title isn't even close to a post-season title, it would be a nice bounce-back for a team from which little was realistically expected title-wise this season. The regular season title is all there for the taking, and the HE Tourney looks like it's going to be the most wide-open tourney I can remember for a long, long time, where realistically any one of 5-6 teams could walk away winners. Should be a fun next few weeks!!

    well done



    no comments from the peanut gallery please


    P.S. ecat, total misplay/lack of concentration and he's had more than a couple shot past the blue line beat him this year.
    sometimes those shots handcuff an otherwise very solid goalie!

Puck was on the redline when it took off. Hard enough to make it thru Milners armpit. It wasn't a Texas leaguer.
    Knodel has a pretty good slappah. I've seen him score some sweet goals this year.

    Wild game today...don't think either coach will be happy with how it unfolded but a point each is probably the just result.
