    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    The Minutemen are good. HEA is very good this year so it may not translate to a much higher placement in the standings. It’s all good.

    Disappointing weekend. Thought UMASS would pull out a split but BU got the equalizer in the third period. Still unclear if UMASS is good or just mediocre again. Three tough series (Michigan, Manakato, BU) to start the year under the belt so maybe some easier opponents will be on the horizon. HE looks pretty good this year so every team needs to be playing their best. Should be an interesting season.

    Watching UMass games always hurts my brain with the slightly lower view and zoomed in camera angles. Now that I got off my chest, I'm pretty impressed with your group this year. I didn't think they'd be as talented as they are. Jack Musa and Kenny Connors are super legit

    Disappointing loss last night. 5-2 seems a little lopsided. Outshot 35-20.....this is what happened last year-not enough SOGs. Hoping for a better result tonight in Amherst. GO UMASS!

    Really excited to see what happens this weekend against BU. Hard to tell where BU is this year. HE game so it will be important to both schools. Thought UMASS would get most votes in the polls after splitting with Michigan and sweeping Mankato. Polls really don't have much meaning this early in the season but glad to see the Minutemen get into the top 20.

    Some good press here too!

    WOW! Didn't expect to win both games. Even more surprising is winning the second one 1-0. Didn't see game but 8 penalties killed bodes well for the team. Hrabal seems like the real deal with 32 saves. UMASS was lucky to have Linberg and Murray at the same time. Hrabal looks like he is going to step in and be the guy in net. We'll see how it goes as the season progresses but you have to be optimistic. Love to hear from someone who saw the series in person.

    Something has changed with the coaching philosophy- perhaps due to new faces but I'm stunned by how many goals they are scoring. Last year they couldn't put the puck in the net.

    You guys have a really good team. Size and speed and an attack mentality. Our lack of discipline hurt us in penalties and on the power play, but there wasn't much doubt that UMass was the better team.

    Hrabal is potentially a game changer.

    Carvel has been doing a lot of navel gazing about his coaching philosophy. Alot of talk about the loss of Barr and that hurt. But not because of his recruiting prowess. The past 2 recruiting classes are solid, there are 13 draft picks here.

    It’s going to be an interesting year. I’m hoping for a weekend split here and next week versus BU.

    Excited about this weekend series. Might provide some clarity on how good UMASS is. Michigan last weekend, Mankato this weekend, BU next weekend. Good early contests..especially with all the new faces. Who starts in goal is a big question. Would not be surprised if Hrabal starts both games. Away games really brings out the best/worst of teams. Hoping for a split. Mankato will be flying high after last weekend.
