    The freshman arrived this weekend and the team is gelling! Congrats Norwich on your 9th Primelink Championship I wasn't so sure you could win it against Concordia after watching them play P-burgh last night. However, I am thankful I was wrong, this was the best I have seen Norwich in some time. Bring on UMB and Babson, Norwich will be ready for you next weekend!
    I was heading back to Virginia today from Boston, and the bumper-to-bumper traffic that stretched from Hartford to NYC gave me a lot of time alone with my thoughts. And, of the various topics that entered my mind, one was "Well, at least we beat Middlebury." No one was giving the Cadets much of a chance tonight, including myself. Hats off to them. We have a contender.

      I think we do, considering who we played without this weekend.

      My contention has been, those who say "can anyone catch UMass-Boston?" are (at least in the moment) idiots. It shows, IMO, a total lack of understanding of how team sports actually work. UMB had a great year last year, and Norwich was down. To imply that they have blown by NU, as a program, is ridiculous.

      I suppose we'll see next weekend. Maybe I'm the idiot...

        Hustle, skate, pass, and back-check like that, and we're in for some very exciting Cadet hockey. I would think the coaches & players are pleased this evening. Well done!

          What I observed is that the Norwich speed wore down the lager Cobbers by the end of the First and they never recovered.

              No, never any problem getting seats at Kenyon Arena. But I think attendance at d3 games in general has suffered because of live streaming and its continued improvement in quality. I saw lots of empty seats at both Plattsburgh games in the Primelink tourney. Why venture out in the cold when you can stay home and sit on the couch with your lager and warm blanket?

                If you want to see the recap you will have to visit the Cobber's Athletic website. I couldn't find it at Norwich or even in the Press-Repulsive. Happy reading Norwich fans.

                  I was wondering in the first if the penalties were going to catch up to Concordia in this regard. Norwich's good puck control meant they had to work their legs quite a bit on their numerous penalty kills. And then I also noticed that they sometimes seemed to go out of their way to deliver a hit.

                    Sorry everyone, both TV3. and TV5 have good coverage and TV3 used NU's report which is now up on its website. Us old geezers are too used to print, although I really enjoy watching the games streamed to my TV down here in Florida. Nothing like being at the rink and hearing the sounds of the puck and the crowd. Enjoy it Norwich fans, it may be a better season than we thought.

                      The Norwich recap was up at 10:47pm last night. It would have been a little earlier but I was waiting on a championship team picture.

                        Sorry, I didn't mean to be so critical........I was in a hurry to read a recap and must have flubbed it looking at you site. You have done an outstanding job at Norwich and don't need any halfa--ed critical remarks from any old geezer, even if it is me.

                                Wish I could be there but I'll be streaming the games. The afternoon start on Saturday actually works better for me this week. This weekend will go a long ways towards either validating or tempering the enthusiasm that was earned last weekend.
