    Championship game day! Not nearly as meaningful in this crazy season but still a very important game. SLU is not going to roll over for us and we'll need to play our best or better. If nothing else, it will serve as a good tune-up for the tourney.

    One shift, one period, one game.

    Go Q!

    That leaves just 3 teams to decide it. We get a bye into the championship game, facing the winner of the sole semifinal between Colgate and St Lawrence. To be honest, it won't be easy no matter who we face. I do think, however, that if we bring our A game and put in a full 60 minute effort, we can claim the Whitelaw Cup, even if it does carry an asterisk in this crazy season.

    Seems we're a lock for the NCAA's regardless, but winning is better than losing!

    College kids. LOL. Hope the beer was worth it.

    Had to be an injury or illness.

    I didn't see any injury to smilanic and he played to end of second period. Do we know why he wasn't out for the third?

    CHN has Q as a lock for an at-large bid at this point in their tournament prediction as a 2 seed and play BU 3 seed in Bridgeport. I believe if we win semifinal and lose in the final, two ECAC teams get in. We may drop to a 3 seed but doesn’t matter much since #2 plays #3 at a neutral site. It’s nice to see balanced scoring but if Smilanic is out it will be tough to beat top teams like BU and BC. Bonjo is not going to have an impact if he comes back in next two weeks since he’s been out 3 months.

    NOTHING to gain...potentially EVERYTHING to lose. These kind of games are tough. Hard to beat a team 11 straight times in one season.

    Can I just say that I think it's hilarious that in the QU ESPN+ games, we're airing a commercial for ECAC Hockey that's at least 7 years old? Coaches that are no longer in the league, players that have long since gone to the NHL (Jimmy Vesey!), the old league twitter account ...

    Is it that hard to make a new commercial?

    A true diamond in the rough. Also didnt realize he's the first to lead team in scoring all four years. Just impressive to see what he has done as a Bobcat.

    The Colgate announcer is excellent. He really does his homework. The video guy however is making me dizzy.

    Cuomo is only doing it for stadiums/arenas at greater than 10,000 capacity. So even if CT were to follow suit, it likely wouldn't apply to the PUC. And even if it did, Quinnipiac would be under no obligation to open the arena -- and I'd be shocked if they did open it before next season.
