    Re: Northeastern Huskies 2016-17 Part II: Postseason Edition

    One thing I wanna comment on from yesterday was Eric Williams. I thought he played very well in his own end. He's never going to be the fleetest of foot when skating backwards or guarding the dump and chase, but at least twice he made stellar plays sprawling out to deny a 2on1 or a cross crease pass. One time it looked like Byron was gonna have an easy breakaway, Williams jumped off the bench, got between two Maine players, and sprawled to pole it off Byron'a stick. Davies made a similar play too. Very good plays by the youngsters.

    Obviously ZAR/Gaudette will get the headlines, but the other boys deserve some publicity too for the stuff that doesn't appear on the scoresheet. The 4th line did well cycling the puck and keeping it deep again. PK was perfect. Cecere made a great play batting the puck out during a late penalty kill. Ruck, frustrating as he is, made some HUGE stops in the third period, right on the doorstep, that could have (should have?) spelled doom for the Huskies. He may be Jekyll and Hyde in the crease, but he stood tall at some big spots.

        No recognition for the NU seniors playing in their last regular season game. Real classy Maine.

            I've been watching college hockey since the 80s, never seen opposing seniors get mentioned anywhere ever

              It's a new trend this year -- never heard it before.

                Northeastern did, in fact, acknowledge the UConn seniors during last weekend's Senior Night at Matthews.

                    Not sure what else the Huskies could do to try and lose this game. This is awful

                      They let up 9 goals against a team averaging 2.91 per game. Today we gave up powerplay goals, shorthanded penalty shots, tipped goals, it was awful. The defense sucked, straight up. Everything that went well yesterday, it wasn't there today on D.

                      ZAR held pointless. Wonder when the last time that happened. Nolan has a great day both in points and overall play. Our best player today. Pond with a goal, which was great. Davies as well.

                      If the score holds we host UConn which, is ideal. So that's the one good thing coming out of this loss.

                        Try letting in 5 goals on just 24 shots. SMH

                          It's hard for me to fathom how bad your backup goalie must be.

                            Ruck could have layed down and went to sleep in the crease and he would have had a better chance of stopping that penalty shot. Made me really glad Hockey East doesn't go to a shootout.

                              we wouldn't know, he's seen action in two games, totaling about 60 minutes of action. In that time he had a .935 SV%, including shutting out Notre Dame in 2 periods before the game was called due to a zamboni malfunction. Many people, myself included, have been clamoring for him to get more time this year. Unfortunately it's too late. At least we are ~7 months from Primeau getting to campus

                                Glad we're playing UCONN, we've never lost to them and now they have to beat us twice in three games.

                                I don't remember, does HE re-seed? I know first things first with UCONN next weekend, but beating Lowell in a road 2 out of 3 is tall task.
