To me coaching is far more important than how many flat screen tvs one has....

    I have a lot of respect for the guy and not only that...UMass’ AD Ryan Blamford (if I have that name right believe his dad was the AD at PSU and then head of the ECAC??) who went out of his way on social media circles to promote his new coach and emergent hockey program...And my last comment wasn’t he highly respected at St Lawrence?

    I thought UNH gave it their all in the first. And there were 3 missed penalties in the first where UNH couldve gone on power play. But looked like refs let the boys play. But now they are calling it tight.

    Forget about the result of this game - win or lose UNH needs to score a couple of goals and get the monkey off their backs heading into the playoffs. Eight goals in the last six games, prior to tonight, and more of the same so far...
