  • TM played great last weekend - the rotation plan was the right one and easy to see coming (this weekend). If JH plays well again tonight that plan goes out the window and he elevates to the #1 spot for the foreseeable future. The issue last night was play in front of the goaltender during key stretches, most notably out of the gates in the first…

    RIT is a good team, but that was a disappointing effort. Tonight will be telling for what’s to come…

      Thanks Dan for your perspective...I don't mean to hang this on TM...agree he's a very capable goal tender. I knew RIT would bring a game to the 'Cats and was frankly not
      that surprised to see that. Their goaltender played very well too. Like you said tonight is telling, particularly how they do from the get go. I am concerned abit about
      some of the undisciplined play that's leading to penalties. Another game with 10 plus minutes in the box is no way to win, and against teams with fire power
      you'd be buried. As it was, RIT got 2 goals on that 5 minute major...

        This game isn’t on Tyler. This is a failure of special teams. The 3 ppg given up drops them from 1 to 13th nationally. And the power play was gross. They gave up basically a breakaway on a 5 on 3. Huard should not be leading these situations. If he’s the only option try 5 forwards.

        I had expected Devlin back this weekend which sets the lines back.

        it was fitting Weekend at Bernie’s was on last night. I’d take him as Fitzgerald’s replacement.

          I like Fitzy's game tho the last couple have been rocky. I think he just needs to find his niche in this level of play maybe? As per Devlin, I had heard that most
          likely he won't be playing until after the break (no pun intended)...there's what, 3 games left to the break. Could see him v Army/Sacred Heart? The announcers were touting
          our 'second in the nation' PK and you are right, there was a massive failure of sorts there. I'm sure they are quite aware and hopefully, adjustments are made tonight.

          Need to remind myself the game is at 5...meanwhile, the B's v NYR is a good game to prime with.

                Atlantic Hockey Association the Rodney Dangerfield of all Div 1 hockey conferences on Saturday as their teams were 6-1-0 in seven OOC games.

                  It should be a reward based playing time and his last 2 games have been awful. Give Babs his time or anyone, can’t be worse.

                  The cast is off I believe maybe not enough time to regain strength in the hand. Maybe at Maine next Friday.

                  The first 5 minutes of the game will probably set the tone for the night.

                          Well finally got something going...but both starts have been really shaky...Norbert, you got your wish, Fitzgerald not in the lineup..Siedem in.

                          • 32-10 SOG and 2 goals???...Scarfone standing on his head. Another lousy penalty (Wynters) great job PK team. Going to be a wild 3rd!
