    Re: Union College Hockey 2009-2010: Playoff series win? Check. Albany? This is the ye

    A strange game indeed last night. Shots galore and a lot of quality ones. There were plenty of rebounds too, but few Union sticks in the landing area to knock them home. This is one of the more offensively challenged Harvard teams that I recall seeing, but no matter, Harvard owns Union for some perplexing reason that seems to have nothing to do with logic. Kind of like the Starr curse. In the past it was definitely the talent level of the respective programs, not so much now, and I do realize U finally beat them at Messa last season.

    I've got to say that out of curiosity I tried to keep an eye on Leblanc and though he's got some wheels, he wasn't much of a factor and he took a couple of very bad penalties. Despite the hype, he's is after all a freshman and probably not yet ready for prime time, i.e. pro hockey. I'd be happy to have him though.

    I would guess that Milan will get the start tonight and Boileau and/or others may sit. Apparently Yanovich is still nursing a bad ankle.

    The streak is over but we're still in first. Tonight's game is of course very important and Union had best be prepared for a tough go with another team that has always given us fits.

    Hey- always hurts to see a string broken. But in this case it kinda relieves pressure. Like a stock market correction. Your team looks great this year and Harvard is probably a lot better than their record thus far. My guess is this is your year to at least get to the semifinals in Albany. I hope RPI too, to sell the place out and get the ECACH honchos to slap their foreheads over the decision to go to Atlantic City.

    Well that was a strange game.. I swear I've never seen Union dominate someone like that and lose.. actually reminded me of some of the games against Atlantic schools, only this was Hahvahd and their 15 NHL draftees.. too bad, cause the crowd was great and even had A BAND .

    Of more concern, the boys seemed a bit tense offensively and seemed to be gripping the sticks a little tight. Too much overpassing and fancy plays at times. Seemed to have problems getting in close on Carroll, though he was outstanding. Also thought the team sorta lost their composure a bit in the last period, not to mention Boileau taking another TERRIBLE penalty in the last 2 minutes of the game .

    Tomorrow's game is now huge IMO as U needs to get back on track and prevent a prolonged skid. I'd like to think this was just a hot goalie and an aberration, but tomorrow will tell the tale. Would not surprise if there are a couple lineup changes and maybe see Milan in goal.

    10 mins to gametime and the union pep band is setting up across the way. They must have been reading this thread. Kinkaid starts. Go U!
