    Re: Those Were the Days, or, Rekindling the Flame (Wars): BC visits UNH, Saturday, 11

    On the plus/minus stuff ... it's kind of hard to criticize Coach Umile for leaning on his top line tonight. We b!tch about the ice time given to the less experienced/less talented players, so when he tries to ride his top line against one of the top 2-3 talented teams in the league, and this happens, then it's not exactly shocking, is it?

    I'll stop here 'cuz I wasn't at the game, and I don't know the time on ice, line match-ups, etc. but a 3 goal loss is hardly surprising here. I'm just disappointed that a poor 3rd period may end up setting DT back, despite a (slight) recent upturn in his play. And with a return to non-conference play coming up, performances and results need to follow, and soon.

      Poturalski was on the ice for five BC goals - two were horrid defensive turnovers where it wouldn't have mattered which F's were on the ice for UNH (as they were all caught out of the play) and one was an empty netter. A fourth was almost called back for a BC off-sides. I did not see the first-period short handed goal.

      Remove the ENG & the two turnovers and he's a -1 (He also had the primary assist on the PP goal - for which he does not get a +). Not sure if its ever occurred to YOU Chuck, but sometimes statistics can be misleading..

        Several of us who predicted 5-2 for BC didn't miss by much.

        Shame UNH scored 3 goals and still never really had a shot at the win.

        There goes the "unbeaten in HE" thing. 3-5-3 isn't quite "Champions of December" quality. Ugh.
        Meh...this game basically met my expectations. Tight, low-scoring game early, until BC wears UNH out in the third.

          Watching the 'Cats fend off the 5 on 3 was an awesome thing to see. We played them tight til the end of the third. Game far exceeded my expectations. We challenged Demko and other kids stepped up. Game not indicative of the score. Talked to a few of the team after and they are realistic and looking ahead. Onward 'Cats!

            How many other teams have lit up Demko for three goals this season?

            Totally unrelated, but JvR, Dan Winnik, and their Leaf mates got shut out 2-0 by Tuukka and the Bs on Saturday night.

                But Providence won again and remains unbeaten. So UNH still last team to beat the Friars. We still have that going for us.

                  As always... the Whitt P.A. announcer never shuts up. He is constantly telling the folks in attendance where they should eat their food, buy their gas or where to deposit their money. "This UNH POWER PLAY is being brought to you by.....". A lot of this chatter is going on during play.

                  BUT... the S.O.B. can't tell you who assisted on a goal? That pizzes me off.

                    Turns out they actually do not enforce the meters on weekends. Who knew?

                      So all minuses are the same? When Dawson falls down while under control of the puck, and preparing to make a D to D pass, and instead puts it right on a BC stick for a 3 on 1 break or when he butchers a pass receipt at the point leading to a 2 on none break towards an empty net those are reflections of Poturalskis defensive play last night??

                      He's not going to win any best defensive forward awards - but -4 is not a reflection of his game last night. It's a large sample size stat that balances out games like last night.

                      Additionally, the pro can criticize Poturalski all he wants - the kid is growing into an absolute stud. He and Kelleher are keeping UNH competitive on their own. Without those two, we're having a CC type season (the Tigers fell to 0-11 without scoring a goal this weekend, FYI). Period.

                      Their continued offensive output inspite of the fact they are the only two forwards opponents need to pay any attention to is amazing...

                        Totally agree on the comment above. And heaven help us if he leaves next year! Can't even let my mind go there...nope. Anyhoo... Here's a quick vid I took of him at the Bruins Dev Camp last summer in a scrimmage. Workhorse, yep...

                          Actually I totally agree Dan, and my (immediate) follow-up post kind of went in that direction, didn't it?

                          UNH has a lot of problems out there, but the first line forwards (y'know, the real ones ) aren't one of them.
