The last minute or two of the BC/UMA game was great to watch. I was appalled to find myself rooting for the Eagles because of higher interest level for tonight’s games and hoping UMA misses out on the regular season title. With UNH’s seeding set and if BC wins earlier, I may find myself rooting for UML tonight.
    Keep in mind its just an annoyance i have with some segment of my own fanbase. I just don't like the idea that UNH has succumbed to that same type of thinking over the several years.

    You guys kept us on edge tonight, both teams probably deserved a few. We (Lowell) need stop committing dumb penalties but I feel like the refs whistles were in playoff mode.

    Maybe more...still think there's a big extention coming...

    On tonight...well at least my score prediction didn't pan out. That said we were never really a threat in anyway. Glad that Fezz got a chance in net tonight thought he did well.

    Regular season over. Best thing to me was the young players really got their ice time in. Some bright spots there .

    Onto BC who swept UMass this weekend. As much as most of us hate that "everyone plays" format at least...we are still skating...fwiw dept.

    More uninspired Mike Snouza hockey on display tonight, once again totally failed at the ever lowering goals of the program.

    Lowell found a way to win tonight. BC found a way to win. UNH found a way to lose.

    In other news, the sun will rise in the East and set in the West. Pictures at Eleven.
    Couldn’t fit an “and I’ll have lunch” in there?? :-)

    Yup! And when one sees the so-called ‘student-athletes’ at other institutions failing out of school and growing up to be unmarried and unmentored anchors on society one truly appreciates UNH’s public stance in today’s dark, cold existence...

    Why do we continue to call them student-athletes, anyway? When, as UNH informs us regularly, it is impossible to be both...

    Hoping the medical staff in Storrs brushed up on the Heimlich Maneuver prior to this weekend.

    Without question, isn't that why they come to UNH (or any school, 'cept a few I could mention) is to get an education? It's awesome to hear that our students in many sports at UNH excel in the classroom. From what I've garnered being on these boards UNH has a very tough admission requirement and I know we've lost some skaters because of it. That's the bar they've (AD , admission) has set at UNH and they do not waiver from it AND, they make no bones about the priority (you mentioned expectations) it holds. This is why we call them 'student - athletes'.

    If I'm being honest, I'm more concerned if they've met their future wives...I mean...Sorry that was a darn snarky comment....!

    No, most UML fans think winning Hockey East is important, because not only is it a title, but it gets you into the NCAAs. It's just a step along the way. Sure, you can make the NCAAs without winning Hockey East, but its always better to pick up another trophy or two along the way.
