    I don't get you guys this year. I watched the Harvard game and you were as solid a team (outside of Quinny) as we have played all year. Fast, physical but not dirty, and a high compete level. You don't have the high end talent or the true difference makers, but that is where a guy like Hayton can play the great equalizer (and I would take him over any other goalie in the league regardless of what the stats say).

    As long as your guys don't quit and stay together (and in the midst of a tough losing streak, that can be hard) - SLU is not a team I would want to see in the playoffs.
    Last year everybody skated as hard as he could every shift, and EVERYBODY chipped in with some goals. I wonder if the team collectively thought it would happen that way automatically this year without significantly outworking the other guys every game. Without that top-end talent up front, that's the only way to win.

    As far as the playoffs go . . . you can't win if you can't score. But I agree that if the team sticks together and commits to one another, they can be a real threat. I think we will learn a lot during the first few shifts this Friday.

      I agree with everything said below, not much more to add to it as everyone has seemed to cover most of it ...

      One thing I will point out though is that last year at this point we were in this exact same situation. We were 10-10 on a losing streak of 5+ games (maybe 4? not sure, but I know a longer losing streak non the less) and then we came home for 4 games and won all 4 of those games and got hot and rode it right into the playoffs. The past 3 or 4 years we have seen the exact same trend of starting off hot, fading in the middle of the season and then going on a tear near the end of the season. Hopefully we keep that trend going through this year, then next year we just need to figure out how to avoid the ongoing mid season slumps we always seem to have.

      Keep pushing along guys and everything should be fine. There is just too much talent on this team not to turn it around completely. No better place to start then this coming weekend. Start with a win and then keep on pushing on. You guys have got this!

              Part of me feels the boys are due for a blitzkrieg of goals, but then I remind myself that tonight is Brown, so of course they'll lose 1-0 or 2-1. And then tomorrow is Yale, so goals won't come easy there either.

              Here's to hoping they can get the train back on the tracks and headed the right direction starting tonight.

                Well, we are already up 2-0 early so we can't lose 1-0 or 2-1 ... That's all I've got at this point!

                    That's more like it. A nice effort. Ylae will be hungry after yet another tie. Gonna take another hard effort from the boys. A weekend sweep sure would be nice given the standings. Time to move up.

                      Score another one for the gut instinct.

                      Very pleased to wake up and see the score and positive comments. Let's do it again tomorrow night.

                        It sure was a great effort last night. They looked much better all around. I noticed they switched up quite a bit in their offensive game plan. It was good to see more attacking the net and a little less cycling the puck around. You could tell it caught Brown off guard a bit. They really mixed it up well, which is great to see. Hoping they can keep it going tonight against a very tough Yale team. It'll be a fun game as Yale loves to get up and down the ice similar to us. We need to skate hard and play sound defensively. We can do this!

                              One step forward, one giant step backward. I was looking for one word that summed up tonight's game and this is what I came up with............ "Meh!"

                              Last year we had a secret sauce. That secret sauce is missing this year. Same recipe...just doesn't taste the same without the secret sauce.

                                Agreed ... It's frustrating to think we are on the right track after last nights game and then BAMM, they lay an egg. I guess it wasn't a complete egg, but I was just hoping for and expecting more. We need to start winning and quickly. I think we can and hopefully we will. We need to get back to work this week with a very hard week of practice and I think things will start to come together. I am still confident at this point, but I'll admit the confidence is starting to slip more and more every game ...
