    I nominate Snively to start and name the 2014-2015 thread.

The unfortunate thing is that while we'd go back and analyze this and figure out what went wrong or what happened, it makes little difference because there is no practice to fix it and there is no next day. Instead we're left to watch another western team (again) hoist the trophy in Rochester and make it to the NCAA Tournament. This leaves the rest of the AHA complaining, once again, that the east high seeds are nothing more than paper seeds who make it to the home series based on the fact that they feast on bad teams.

    This was one heckuva season, but for another year, we're left to wonder what if.
    Side note follow up. Bentley went 7-4-2 without Marginsky. Prior to him getting hurt against RIT, the team was 9-3-2 in conference play. I focus on the conference numbers because I think we can throw out the OOC records given how the year started.

    Again, I don't think he's the missing link, but he was definitely a big part.

    This team just ran out of gas tonight. They looked like they were skating in wet cement in the 2nd. No shame in it, as it's a third consecutive day of hockey, following two overtime games, against a bigger squad. Herculean effort just came up short.

    I'm depressed and will drink now.

    I would like to congratulate this team and the senior class. Although I am disappointed in the loss the team played to the very end. The seniors were great and they brought us some great hockey this year. Good luck to all the seniors and let's hope Bentley can continue their growth. I want to come back some day to a rink on campus. Good luck to the returning players!

    Tough 3-2 loss for the Falcons.

    Another all western pod AHA tourney in Rochester, which is getting old.

    But, this Bentley team was my all-time favorite. Thank you, seniors, for your leadership this year. I think that you have left a legacy that will pay dividends for Bentley hockey moving forward. Best wishes with your careers, wherever those may take you.

    I paid $9 to watch a game online, through a black net, from the JAR.

    Dedication.

    I suppose it really ought to be tied at one, with each team winning (and losing) a game they shouldn't have.
    My concern from before the series was how Bentley's D would perform against the offense from Canisius. The Griffs are a super efficient team that can score four goals in 16 minutes to make up for the fact that they played like crap for the other 44 minutes or worse. They sit back and wait, wait, wait until they're rady to attack. And when they attack, it's GAME ON. That makes them dangerous.

    It's very much a rope-a-dope style. They let you pound them, pound them, pound them, and then they unleash hell and fury with lethal efficiency. So far, they've won most of the battles, even though Bentley is tied. The Falcons needed a mad dash 26 second comeback and OT goal to beat them in Game 1. They collaped in Game 2. Anyone doubting the Griffins chance in Game 3 are really taking this on the chin.

    If Bentley wins, it's RMU or Air Force. If Canisius wins, it's Mercyhurst for next opponent.

    Ironically, I was listening to Earth Wind and Fire that afternoon. I think they sang that song "She's a brick...HOUSE"

    I feel that was the end last night! The first line has really provided all the fire power no one has done much else and we need them! The defensive collapse was poor to say the least. They walked off that rink like they lost the series. Of course I will watch but I am concerned! To win others must generate offense and komm must stand on his head!

    Most syllable intensive name I've had in a while. I love the guy because he's gutsy, but I disclaimed in the first period I was going to start calling him "the goalie" if it struck me because it was just easier. Or just "Save" and keep it short.

    I'll tell you this - I don't know how to feel. I said in the predictions from this week I picked Bentley in 3 and I'll stick with it, but here's what'll happen. They have to, absolutely have to, shut the door in the 3rd period. Canisius is a great 3rd period team, and they're like bulldogs. I think I called them a rash on the air, and I didn't mean any disrespect towards them. A rash just sticks around and annoys and pesters. You scratch the rash, eventually the itch goes away. But when that rash breaks out, goddang if it doesn't just ruin your whole day.

    So Canisius is diaper rash. There, I said it.

    But I said to Nate Lull after the game how exciting and thrilling this series has been. It pains me but I'll say this about the series - it's been fun. Bentley has not been the better tema, and Canisius is a battle tested playoff team. They just keep coming back. They hadn't trailed at lal in this series and they've rallied twice. This is something where Bentley needs to send a statement early and then play solid two way hockey. The heroes need to put up or shut up tomorrow on both sides, and I don't think we'll have a shortage of moments.

    That said, I hate Game 3's. It's win or go home on both sides. And I've said this - if it's going to win or lose, I'd prefer a 7-0 or dominant victory for either side. I really don't want another OT game.

    Hope that the Falcons can find some energy for game 3 tomorrow. At least they showed that they can score goals 5 on 5. Now, they need to tighten up the D with leads; coughing up a 4-1 lead in the third period is inexcusable. Go Falcons!
