    The staff has done a tremendous job over the last 7-8 years developing talent and implementing a culture and style of play that’s fun to watch. This approach has resulted in some great seasons which included two stints as #1 in the poll, Two NCAA finals and a #1 overall top seed in the tournament.

    Having said that....a new pregame speech for the big game is needed. Something like ...I don’t know “60 minutes to play....a lifetime to remember” Stop using the speech you’ve been using.

      I don't buy into what the student reporter tweeted about their struggles in big games. The Yale loss was an awful loss -- the worst loss in program history. But losing to NoDak in the final? They were the better team. To say that we struggle in big games ... we got to those games. The National Semifinal is a huge game that we had to win to get to the title game. Beating Boston College, or UMD -- those are massive wins for the program.

      There have been some bad losses, but let's be honest -- unless we shockingly don't get into the Tournament, this really doesn't qualify as a "big game" choke job. The game was far more important to SLU than it was to Quinnipiac. We're in the tournament, so while we should have won this game tonight, I just don't buy into the idea that this is further proof of poor performance in big games.

        I don't know. They have a history of struggling in championship games. Its a fact. From the time in the MAAC/Atlantic Hockey to the ECAC with losses in 2007 and last night. The struggles in these championship games can't be overlooked even if we are in the tournament.

          You have to discount a lot of wins in order to arrive at the selectively-chosen losses.

          Counterpoint: If you're in lots of title games, you may lose more than you win because (generally) you're facing a really good team. Though they should have beaten Yale in 2013 and SLU this year. But the 2007 loss, they were punching way above their weight, the team was super banged up, and they ran out of gas. They had no business being in that spot that year. North Dakota, they just weren't good enough. Sure you want to talk about the Mercyhurst loss, I can understand that one. But some of those losses can be chalked up to facing a very good team.

          • One more point on this: I'll take our NCAA Tournament record over the last 8 years against most teams. Two trips to the title game, another regional final ... that's not bad. Show me an ECAC team that has had this level of success over such a long period of time in the NCAA Tournament. Sure, we should have more ECAC Tournament wins, but we have been a very successful NCAA Tournament team, all things considered, over the last few years.

                I am always hesitant to post as I have a kiddo on the team, and not sure how it will be received. I will say the lack of respect we are getting from around the country is crazy to me. I can accept the fact our conference was a bit of a mess, yet that has nothing to do with the team. Also mention that my son coming from the Midwest to Hamden was by far the best decision he ever made. We've had some tough losses and have a very tough bracket ahead, yet if Keith is a brick wall and Bonjo does his thing....Dilly has some mojo going and we always know Tufto is going to go full out, just never know. I know a lot of folks around the country who would love to be rooting for their team right now and are instead looking at next year. The SLU loss left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, hopefully its a motivator for the kids. Regardless, QU is a fantastic program that at least gives all a hope.

                • I think we'll see a completely different team than the one from the past 2 games.

                      • Wishing I was at the game today. This will be the first season I’ve never seen a game live, and it’s torture, but I’ll be cheering loudly for the Bobcats. Bring it boys!!

                          • Good time to pick your worst period all year fellas. Looks like you’re the only team playing at the high altitude...what the heck happened in the locker room after the first period!!?? Losing every race..every board battle...guess we’re gonna look to counter attack only rest of the game. Maybe their youth is showing at the wrong time. Can’t get the puck out of their own end. Rand better light a fuse under their arse after 2nd period...or a long third period awaits.
