  • Re: Official 2009-2010 Miami season thread part II: Unfinished Business

    Was at last night's game. I think everyone can agree that the guys were a bit sluggish out of the gate. I lay all of the blame for both goals on Cody - both were very easy in my opinion. Especially the little 5-hole poker. I don't mind Cody going for the poke-check off of Bishop's stick, but, in doing so, he couldn't close his pads in time. I probably would have let the defender take the body and focus on controlling the rebound. Nit-picking, but saying.

    Otherwise, I was glad to see no lingering rust from guys such as Miele and Camper - helluva game from both. Palmer and Wings were all over the place. I haven't watched via 'net for a few weeks (and my first in-person game of the season), but did Spinell get some extended minutes last night?

    Looking forward to a huge night tonight. Though I am reminded that SCA is just not the same when the students are on break. We really need to talk to President Hodge about making sure the students are in town for the last 2 weekends of the hockey season. Crowd was pretty good last night, but students would have made it much better.
    Long live the "Brotherhood"!!!!!

    Giving up a home run in Great American Ballpark is kind of like walking into a chocolate factory and yelling "I WANNA BE FAT!!!"

    It's going to happen. Just give it time.....and a little effort.

      I agree that the atmosphere is better with the students there, but this is the only time of the season a guy like me (#460 on the season ticket waiting list) gets a chance to go to a game.
      You just gotta love the "Brotherhood"
      GO HAWKS!

Yale's defence is awful, and their goalies are even worse. Thankfully they'd be in our new bracket right now. Yes please.
        Yale has more than two good players - and their defense isn't awful - but you're right about the goalies, and the effect of losing Backman, and Brown's improvement.

          Well I must admit that I haven't seen much of their play this season, but something just strikes me as off when they give up that many goals. Didn't mean their defencemen necessarily, but team defence (goalies included). Any time you lose a 20+ goal scorer in the playoff season just spells bad news. And a team that has to audition 4 different goalies, only one of which with a sub 2.50 GAA, and none with .900 Sv%, wow.

            It was good to see the rink full of people who don't always get to make it to games due to the rest of the season being "sell outs". I'd assume we see more students tonight coming back from spring break to catch what looks to be the last game of the season at home. Thankfully our potential playoff road trips after this are relatively short.

              I'm sure he wants that first goal back, but he still made a good play on it. Just a lucky bounce to put it in. It was a great poke check to get the pass away, but then it went right off Bishops skate and in.

              And I mentioned it in the other thread, that our first 20 would be "feeling it out", trying to get the rust of 2 weeks off. We still had good possession in that period, OSU was playing like they were shorthanded the entire time we had the puck in the offensive zone in the first. They weren't over pursuing or really trying to win battles in the corner, but playing great positional play and keeping sticks in lanes and forcing us to the outside. That obviously doesn't work for 60 minutes, and you see what we had in the 5 unanswered goals (and another 2 that were near goals right off the inside of the crossbar).

I put something up on MHT about this happening, but given that they are playing Tech, and we're playing Ohio State, that 1 game last night took us to .0001 behind them in RPI. And they were an inch away from going to overtime against the Huskies out in Denver. Another win tonight and regardless of what Denver does we should have our #1 back.
                Not to mention that our win over the Bucks last night flipped the Common Opponents comparison in Miami's favor. Denver is currently winning RPI and Record Against TUCs, but like you said, a Miami win tonight will jump Denver's RPI and place us back in PairWise #1.
                Love and honor to Miami forever and a day. Go RedHawks!

                  Yea even for feeling them out, they carried the play in the first. unlike tonight where they played uninspired in the first.

                    At least I won't have to go cross-eyed staring at the CCHA box score window again tomorrow night, heading back to Oxford bright and early. Let's hope we come out firing, go hawks!

                                The ref's had to even up on the lack of a goaltender interference call on that one Miami goal.
