    Major red flag...

    Sikura and Gaudette need more grit for the next level. MUCH more grit.

In conference games, he leads Hockey East in points, goals, assists, power-play shots, tied in power-play goals and SOG. He is an absolute beast. If 9, 8 and 21 all come back next year, and i know that's a big if, that could no exaggeration be the best line in Northeastern history.
    ZAR, hands down, has been the best player on the ice in every live NU game that I have seen this year. Frankly, I have to say he may also be the most improved player over last year as well. The little things that he has added to his game is a BIG reason he has ramped up his scoresheet production. See the SHG assist in Providence for more information. The decision making before that play even unfolded was major league.

    I believe your line of 8, 9 and 21 would have two players on it fairly determined to keep the puck away from each other...one more so than the other...

    In case you're not aware, entry is through the Columbus Garage entrance further up Columbus Ave. and across from the NUPD. Just tell the attendant you're going to the hockey game.

    At this point we have to accept who they are. Their hockey DNA has been established. 14 can spice up the offense, NU's and the opponents. 4 + 5 are freshman still learning their way around. 20 is similar to 14. 29 and 2 are third pairing guys. 41 can sometimes take a mistake in front of him and make it worse. The D doesn't get bailed out too often by the G. When the 3rd and 4th lines are on the ice the pressure in the defensive zone is amplified. At least it's not boring hockey!

    I've even had luck going as early as 1.5 hours or so if you plan to eat around the arena. Just say "Here for the NU hockey game" and you should be good to go
