    3 goals by defenseman. Maybe we should use a 5 d-man power play.

    Continuing the pattern of "beat teams on par or worse than us, lose to teams better than us"....which is a step up from "lose to everyone."

    Gutsy effort from a shorthanded squad.

The rest are Big Ten teams, and the Big Ten does not play a lick of defense - in terms of GA every team in that league is either in line with us or way worse, but they have actual firepower
    Oh you’re right, it was HC and not Bentley. Anyway my argument admittedly wasn’t airtight. It was more to point out, out of complete frustration, that even a newly minted D1 squad can score some goals.

    For example, look at Lindenwood a school I'd never heard of until last summer when they appeared on our schedule. They scored 4 in a loss at Minnesota, 4 in a loss at Michigan, 7 in a win against Air Force, 5 in a win at Army, and 3 in a loss at Wisconsin last night. I left out 7 in a win at Bentley, because we scored 6 against them at home. Anyway, some of these results are against legit, quality teams on the road. Is Lindenwood more talented (well we'll have the answer to that soon enough) or is it something about their coaching that enables them to score goals?

    Well we got some goals tonight, that's at least *a* step. (Especially that PPG)

    Got dominated, but Autio was very strong most of the night and the offense was able to finish the chances it got. Take the point and run. The next two months or so are all winnable games imo.

    7 Road games this year and only 5 goals. They have not scored a road goal in over 230 minutes. PP o for 13 in that stretch.

    By all accounts Woodcroft is an exceptional hockey coach. Hopefully that's the case, but frankly I'm not seeing it. Why, why, why are we almost completely incapable of scoring goals??? We scored a total of 3 goals in a win and a tie against Colgate. We scored a total of 4 goals in a win and overtime win against UNH last weekend. We've been blanked twice by Lowell. We scored 2 in two losses to Northeastern and 2 in two losses to UConn. We got blanked by Providence last night and, if you look on the UVM website under schedule, we're going to get blanked by Providence 4-0 again tonight (haha, I'm not making this up).

    Sure one can argue it's lack of talent, we don't have sharpshooters, we don't have goal scorers, etc., but that doesn't stop other untalented teams from scoring. For example, look at Lindenwood a school I'd never heard of until last summer when they appeared on our schedule. They scored 4 in a loss at Minnesota, 4 in a loss at Michigan, 7 in a win against Air Force, 5 in a win at Army, and 3 in a loss at Wisconsin last night. I left out 7 in a win at Bentley, because we scored 6 against them at home. Anyway, some of these results are against legit, quality teams on the road. Is Lindenwood more talented (well we'll have the answer to that soon enough) or is it something about their coaching that enables them to score goals? Whenever I hear an out-of-town broadcast of a game involving UVM, the announcers are always saying we're a very disciplined team. Perhaps we shouldn't be quite so disciplined. Maybe we should open things up and play exciting, entertaining hockey, and score some goals. I don't have the answers of course, but this is just a thought.

    I get a kick out of whoever's writing the headlines for the stories on the UVM athletics website. For the game last night, it's "#9 Providence Holds Off Vermont Friday Night." Really? Providence held us off? That would imply the game was tight and went down to the wire with Providence holding us off to eke out a win. No, Providence won 4-zip. It was an easy win.

    Before the game it was "Men's Hockey Carries Win Streak to #9 Providence for Weekend Set." Again, really??? We won two games in a row, that's a win streak?

    So very true! One can't beat cupcakes, when we (UNH)are already annointed as the official Hockey East Cupcake for the 22-23 season.

    Congrats on the sweep. We'll be lucky to win 10 games this season, the way that it's progressing.......

    I will say, so far this season we're beating the "bad" opposition but losing to the "good". the first step to improvement is winning those games against the "bad" lol
