    To be honest Mookie didn't think y'all would be last.

    Hard to pick anyone worse than Maine

    Yes.

    1. BC
    2. Notre Dame
    3. PC
    4. Merrimack
    5. UML
    6. BU... Jack Eichel is not walking through that door. Sucks to BU.
    7. UMass
    8. UNH
    9. UConn
    10. Maine
    11. VT
    12. NU

    Conference Tournament Championship: NU. After a 2-34-0 start, they make the NCAA's! Whoop, whoop!
    National Tournament teams: NU (3 win auto bid), BC, ND, BU (not sure how... The Parker Foundation bribed the committee?)
    Coach Firing/retiring: Jeff Jackson leaves for the B1G.

    ..don't mind him.. it's not that he doesn't have an open mind.. it's just vacant.

    ..take away the sevreral 1 goal / late 3rd period losses and they are in the mix of things. Goaltending has got to get sharper. Hoping they can overcome it this season.

    and our next opponent ('Mack) handles Notre Dame by a couple goals tonight.. no easy games.

    So important that we get some sound goatending down the stretch. Go NU

    with about 13 odd ticks left in OT.. their net came off.. not sure what caused it but i saw Gaudette? or someone make a pass to the slot to someone.. seemed the guy was wide open..
    whistle blew the play dead & faceoff came outside. thought that was a great opportunity but not meant to be this time. Still not convinced about Ruck but he was slightly better.. still had his moments. Tirone for them looked solid.. very solid.

    Any points help at this stage of the year. Tonight, 2 was best and most desired, 1 is alright, we'll take it, 0 would have been fuel to the dumpster fire. Take the point, and focus on Merrimack next week.

    Good things: Ruck actually played solid I thought. Saved 33/35. Good positioning most of the night, still had some scrambles and rebound issues. Filipe with maybe his best game, played great in the cycle game, was physical, drew 2 penalties, hit a post, had 4 SOG, really would love to see him with ZAR/John until Nolan returns. ZAR/Sikura/Johnny did great.

    The defense shut down Kelleher, who leads the nation in points. This is the first time he's gone 2 games without a point since Feburary 2016. Keeping him off the scoresheet isn't easy. Shea shut him down well.

    Bad: Williams-Davies-Collier-Kurker was on the ice for both UNH goals. That's not good. Passing wasn't crisp but it was outdoor hockey, that's expected. Breakouts were pretty poor, UNH had a 2 man forecheck most of the game that really threw us off, Tom Caron was talking alot about that.

    ..he's playing against his ex MC teammate Nazarian.. who already scored for UNH tonight.. bet he's pumped up. Keep it going.
