    Hockey East has given Adam Dawe a one game suspension. He will be out of the lineup for Friday's game against Providence.

    Barr outcoached/out-prepped MS7 in Friday's win, UNH was ready for it Saturday. You nailed it.
    OK.

    This was a split among two crappy teams.

    End of story.

    With Maine coming into the weekend being one of the fewest penalized teams in the country, it's obvious to me that Barr changed his game plan. He must have realized that playing a physical puck chasing game was a possible way to win against UNH. It worked in spades on Friday night! Very uncharacteristic for Maine to play that way under Barr this season. UNH was ready for it on Saturday and turned the table. I applaud Barr for making a change in his game plan. The problem was Maine couldn't control their physical play and it lead to too many penalties. I don't think Gendron ever changed his game plan against an opponent.

    I thought the weekend was very encouraging. It was nice to see a mostly full house, Maine score some goals, and I thought overall Maine played really hard. Completely agree with Runsub that they just ran out of gas in the third last night. To play as well as they did without Sirota is a major accomplishment as well.

    To what Blackbears19 said yesterday I think Maine def has a shot at making the tourney in a couple years. There is so much parity though I could see Maine in the mix but not quite get there. There is a huge amount of luck involved.

    I’m excited about Maine’s class coming in but realistic that there will probably be some disappointments in there. For me the biggest key is finding some guys who can put up 25 or 30 points in a year versus 10 or 15. There are a lot of guys who have the tools but the end product just isn’t there.
