    Was expecting a solid win this weekend but instead eked out an OT win. This is definitely a team that is still "in progress". The other thing I took away from this game is that every HE game is going to be tightly contested. Kudos to UNH- they are surprising everyone!

      Weekend series against Vermont. I have to be optimistic. Wonder if Brady will get a shot in goal for one of these games. Seems like Hrabal is the man these days. GO UMASS!

        What happened? 6 Unanswered goals? Was optimistic when Brady won the first game 4-1 and figured Hrabal for a shutout. I think this is going to be a long season @ .500 in HE.

          After a bad outing against Vermont and things looked bleak, the Minutemen stage a 3rd period comeback against an excellent Providence team. Seems like UMASS has a good blend of freshman and graduate students on the team making an impact.
          Every HE game is a tossup. Can UMASS beat the Friars twice? Providence is going to come out hard on Saturday. Should be a great game.

            It was a slog fest. Hard for either team to find much space. The Minutemen dominated the third period and deserved the win.

            Even though the grad students picked up a couple of assists I haven’t been impressed with any of them. Two of them bungled badly leading to the second Providence goal. And did Liam even suit up? He’s been racking up alot of penalties lately.

            And Owen Murray is a liability in the defensive zone.

            And while I’m *****ing, those announcers sucked big time.

              Good bounce back from disappointed loss to Vermont. Sweeping the Friars was certainly unexpected. I guess Hrabal just had a bad game against Vermont but bounced back with string performances this weekend. Ufko is coming into his own with a strong showing this weekend. Harvard next. Can't remember the last time UMASS played them. GO UMASS!

                3/29/2019. A 4-0 win for the good guys. They’ve only faced each other 4 times.

                  We played you guys in the NCAA quarters back in 2004.

                    I don’t think so. You’re thinking of Maine there.

                    While I’m here, I just noticed that Suniev was originally committed to Harvard. I’m hoping he’ll be extra motivated, especially coming back from the game misconduct.

                      Yup, you're right. We lost to you guys in the NCAA quarters in 2019, 4-0. Should have checked the record book instead of relying on memory.

                        The Harvard game should be an interesting contest. Not sure where either school stands at this point in the season. My gut tells me that UMASS wins but my gut is a poor predictor of things. Hope the Minutemen comes out strong.

                            Your gut was spot on. It was men against boys. You guys seemed to be on a game-long power play with how you controlled the puck in our zone. Had it not been for your starting goalie, the game would have been a rout. We're just too young and inexperienced to give anyone from HE a worthwhile game. I shudder to think about Sunday against BC.

                              It was another grinder of a game. That’s the way Carvel likes them. For a fan with no rooting interest probably hard to watch. Those announcers were very good, which was a nice change from those 2 unprepared buffoons that covered the Providence game last week.

                              I’m not sure what is going on with Hrabel. Reading too many press clippings? I would only fault him for goals 2 and 5. That last one was so bad I’m sure he’s going to be sitting next week vs UVM.

                              I wish there was a little more firepower in the lineup. And the defense can be shaky at times. But otherwise a lot for a UMass fan to like.

                                So the success this year will be dependent if Hrabal is on? His inconsistency is astounding. One game he is a wall, the next a sieve? I hope he can figure this out. Maybe it's just being a freshman and getting used to school and hockey. Hope he can figure it out. Brady needs to be ready every game.
