    UMass' record in their first 9 games against ranked opposition: 7-2-0
    UMass' record in their last 3 games against ranked opposition: 0-3-0

    The UConn loss this past weekend was probably equally irrelevant as the win over UMaine was.

      Looks like we picked the wrong season(s) to quit being ranked.
      I will not be out cheered in my own building.

        I assume two of those losses were to Lowell. And unfortunately, it seems like UMass can’t beat Bazin. The other loss was a close one on the road to PC. No shame in that. Weirdly enough, UMass probably played their best game of the series in the PC loss. Sometimes the team that plays the best doesn’t win, and a strong argument could be made that the team that played the best lost all three of games in the PC-UMass season series.

        Unless the Wildcats are borrowing Riverhawks jerseys I’m not gonna worry about those.

        This is also as a side note a weird position for UMass. First time ever the QF aren’t do or die. If we’re gonna lose hopefully it’s this week or next. If there’s anything we’ve learned from UNH it’s that this isn’t the important tournament.

          Fair enough, all around (my points precisely). Hoping UNH can get your losses out of the way early.

              That’s a good point, and maybe cause for concern moving forward. Last games on the larger ice surface this season.

                  Y'all play on the big ice, too? You have no chance in the playoffs. Season over. Seriously. Read our thread.

                    Mullins is 200x95. There’s been success on the small ice this year too. Coach Carvel’s has been know to have the team practice at Amherst College, which has smaller ice.

                      Is the game going to be televised? I'll be there but didn't see that when I checked; is NESN picking it up or does UMass have a feed?

                        I’m pretty sure once the playoffs start Hockey East owns the rights. That means you will have to buy a “package” to see the games.

                          Oh yeah that's right...had forgotten about that. Going to the BU v UML games?

                            Not sure yet. I might wait for a Game 3...I've got a bunch of stuff going on and, to be honest, I'm not real excited about this team (yes, that makes me a fair-weather fan, but after 49 years I guess I'm spoiled). But good luck...hope the Wildcats play well! i'd love to go to the Garden again but I don't like going as a "neutral" observer...I need a team to cheer for.

                              So if we played against 9 ranked teams in the second half we'd go 0-9 I guess lol. Try watching the games with your eyes open, I've found that it helps.

                              As for Maine/UConn, if you can't tell the difference between completely dusting a decent HE team and playing all three goalies in a game of no consequence than I'm sorry, I can't help you.

                                OK, I'll play … of exactly what consequence was the UMass-UMaine game?

                                "Playoff seeding" would be an incredibly weak answer, but I think that's all you'll have ...
