    Seemed really warm, nearly hot, where we were. There was a puddle on the ice near the boards in front of Sec 114 for most of the game.

    Non-serious answer: Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), which we were warned about several years ago.

    My video feed was perfect last night. It was actually quite good. What was not good was watching UNH flail around in the second period. Between the penalties and weak play both shorthanded and 5-on-5, it's no wonder Tirone was under siege. He made some good stops but also could have been better on at least one of the goals. UNH hung in there in the third and made it interesting for a little while at the end but … another road loss. This part of the Umile era so reminds me of the late stages of the Holt era. Some good players, jut not enough of them.
    That's been my developing concern for some time now ... and unfortunately this season is showing a real dip down to a level we haven't seen in quite awhile. Unless UNH somehow finds a level of consistent positive play that's eluded them up to this point, this year's team will post the worst record of the Coach Umile era. And the unthinkable - last place in Hockey East, especially in a year when there is a new member in the league - is suddenly not so far-fetched. That would put a major dent in the long-term recruiting process, no doubt.

    I'll check back in after next weekend, as that's the end of the 7 game stretch I targeted a few weeks ago, and while UNH is 2-3-0 during that stretch, it's the way they've gotten there that's so troubling. The team's apparent absolute dependency on Pesce - a player who is no better than 50-50 on returning for his senior season - also offers a troubling outlook on the prospects of a quick turnaround next year.

    Here's to hoping that chronically overrated Notre Dame provides the perfect remedy to what ails the 'Cats next weekend ... but even if it does, I still share Greg's concerns about the outlook going forwards. If you put the program's records over the last decade on a graph, there wouldn't be any sharp drops from year to year. But from beginning to end, it's unmistakable. And not comforting. JMHO.

    Funny you should say that coz we were remarking the same thing tonight...

    Welp gang the wheels did indeed come off the proverbial wagon tonight that is for sure. Watching Matt Willows get a 10 min major hurt and the team just fell apart.

    Thought they were the most disjointed as I've ever seen them play this year...or ever quite honestly in my short tenure following them. When Downings goal was disallowed that was pretty much it. It is what it is and this season is what it is. Don't say we didn't know going in gang!

    Not going to lose any sleep over it and thanks for the permission to keep my pom poms out if I want, haha. My apologies for trying to keep it positive where ever possible. I'll enjoy my remaining time this season and keep that to myself. Aerman catch ya at the next FOMH gig after the BU game. OOPS the UConn game but sadly I won't be there. Been fun catching up...at least I know where ya sit, Don't forget to wear blue �� . Over and out for abit...peace out.

    Less people in the crowd?

    That might be one of the most reasonable comments I've seen on this thread ever.

    After completing the "bottom feeder" section of their schedule, UNH manages a split against Amherst and a sweep at the hands of UMO. Not the results we hoped for and very telling when it comes to this season's team and their mental toughness. Ten games remain, all against better teams. Honestly, who cares how they do down the stretch record wise. They will finish out the string, go on the road the first weekend of HE play and be eliminated. End of story. In that time, the goalie rotation will continue, which is good for next season and the frosh will have that much more D1 experience which I guess is the point of the entire season.

    In the meantime, I just don't want to read any lame quotes in the paper from players or head coach about how "they've got to play with a sense of urgency" or "they can't be out competed".....fill in your own canned phrase there. Whatever they say along those lines borders on the rediculous at this point. Let's just come to terms with the fact that this team reached it's ceiling a while back and move forward to what's hopefully a better season in 15-16. If it makes you feel any better Ref, you don't even have to put away your pom poms if you don't want...

    I'm speechless.
    I'd be curious what you and other UNH fans made of Maine's disallowed goal. It looked to me like the majority of the contact with UNH's goalie was from the UNH dman. I thought both team's disallowed goals should have counted.

    UNH still ahead of Maine in PWR points, tied with Bentley and Canisius at 41st, Maine at 44th. :-)

    I only could listen on the radio, and of course the UNH radio guys are not allowed to say what we write here. But, they did note that Willows getting tossed in the third in exchange for a second-tier D-man was not a smart move. I will give our five frosh D-men (is five right?) and our frosh goalies a pass, but we cannot have one of our senior leaders getting thrown out of the game.
