    We will certainly be there. Read some of Red's comments, and while the week off was not welcome, they did spend a lot of time addressing issues. If my theory that the coaches needed to coach out some bad habits from the captain's practices, well things may be good.

    Being that purple is the color of royalty in England, yes.

      We'll be there. Maybe I'll hide behind an old school goalie mask for Friday the 13th. Can we repeat the 6-0 win we had last time we played the purple eagles?


      On the other topic, I am biased. As a Baltimore Ravens fan, I like purple and bird mascots. Once at Vikings vs. Lions game I couldn't believe a fully grown man wearing baby/powder blue (or Honolulu) was mocking someone for wearing purple. Lavender might be a color to mock for a sports team, but a strong royal purple is a great color.

        Anyone going to the game tonight - GET THERE EARLY!

        There is a Men's Basketball game - season opener against Northern Michigan - starting at 7:00.

        Parking is going to be a R-E-A-L B-I-T-C-H!

        The Crisler lot will NOT be an option and a lot of the street parking will also be taken by people going to the hoops game.

            I thought that short of the end of the 2nd period and most of the 3rd period, the team was flying but hustling back on defense. Now grant it, Niagara really stinks and other teams would have buried some of their chances early on- but it was nice to see this team plow the Purples right from the gun. Can't say the defensive play was better, but maybe more aware of the effort. BU next week will show how much they improved with the time off. Connor was dominant, wish he would have finished off his hattie. Nice to see Red play Chad Catt, too. If anything, Niagara's uniforms were sharp. Didn't mind the purple at all. Better than that disgraceful light purple & yellow the LA Kings wore in my youth.

              More aware on D is a good way of putting it. They appeared to play better, but still had some big gaffes- and it was interesting that the 2-1 that Niagara scored on was Werensky. Not sure what to make of that, but...

              The offence really did look better- flowed and did some passing that new in the upper slot.

              And the opening play- which was clearly scripted- was pretty cool. Almost scored on that one.

              Chad looked nervous to start with, but once he let that goal in, it looked to us that he settled down. It was nice to see a game where he could get in and get some playing time.

                Okay, on to BU... this is the weekend all of the media hockey know it alls are pointing to see if U-M is a paper doll or not.

                I say BU can score five but we can score six. Not the way to win games, but it would be fun to watch.

                Come out with favorable results and there is hope to make the national tourney.

                  And a reminder that the Dekers are hosting a watch party- you do NOT need to be a Deker to attend. I'm sure being a Michigan fan is highly encouraged, though.

                  The first Dekers watch party of the season is tentatively scheduled for Friday, Nov. 20, when U-M visits Boston University. Faceoff is 6 p.m. We will convene at Revel & Roll (formerly Colonial Lanes) at 1950 S. Industrial Hwy in Ann Arbor. Stay tuned for more details as television availability in Michigan is still being determined.

                    Could anyone find if this weekend's games will be broadcast in our area? It doesn't look like it to me. Which I find terrible as on paper, BU is the best team we'll face this season (currently ranked 10th, for comparison, Union is currently ranked 18th and the B1G sucks so we're the only conference team currently ranked). I accept that this early in a season, rankings aren't all that meaningful, but certainly games against a good Hockey East team will be when it's time to look at the pairwise.

                    I'm excited for these games, as I think they'll show us what kind of team we have. As usual, I expect keeping the puck out of our net will be the struggle. BU is currently averaging 3.4 goals/game.

                      That was one question that Matt Trevor needed to answer for the Dekers event at Revel and Roll- who is going to broadcast it?

                      Being that the event is official, I'm figuring that it's on somewhere.

                        New England Sports Network for Friday was all I found. Not a station I get, I guess I'll be headed to the Dekers event to watch the game. Didn't see anything listed for Saturday (probably too much football to compete with).

                                Yep, great guy. I hung-out with him and the rest of the team in 2004. What's up with Brandon?
