    More rambling:

    What a College Hockey game yesterday between Trinity and Hamilton. Hamilton won the game 4-3 in OT and improved to 6-7(5-6) while Trin falls to 9-7(7-5). This game had a playoff feel with both teams competing hard desperate to win the game. I do not know the recent histories between the teams but you can tell there is no love lost between the two. Just a great game with everything in it. Competition, hard hits, snappy wristers, crisp passing, blocks, mistakes, skill, speed, desire and some craziness. The game had long spurts of up and down all 200 feet with plenty of action and with few whistles which I like. The rest of the it was more of a chess match and highly entertaining.

    Trinity had LW #29 Jax Murray 7-7-14, C #11 Paul Selleck 2-2-4 and RW #22 Gerrard Marretta 8-6-14 with D men #24 Ned Blanchard 0-2-2 and the Frosh #28 Eamon Doheny 1-2-3 starting the game. The D pairing of #20 Campo 1-6-7 and #23 Andrew Troy 2-1-3 might be one of the more athletic and talented in the league as they also are #1 and #2 in Blocks on the team. 2nd Line of LW #9 Poliziani 2-3-5, C #19 Michaud 4-9-13 and RW #17 Prattson 1-8-9. Trinity got a solid game in goal from #33 Patrick Pugliese.

    Hamilton used a Top Line of LW #18 Jordi Jefferson 4-6-10, C #10 Fred Allaire 3-4-7, RW Nick Hawkins 2-4-6. This line has the ability to be one of the best in the league and all 3 work hard. Still they should have even better numbers. Allaire is too talented to have only 3 Goals(1 until yesterday). He does everything F/O's (20-31 yesterday), PK, plays a full 200 and can score. Jefferson had a fantastic SH'er against Midd after he got a clean poke, got in alone on goal and then worked the Midd Goalie with a sick fake and backhander. Hamilton loves this Youngster Line LW #4 William Neault 1-1-2, C #44 McKenzie 1-3-4 and RW #14 Logan Greene 0-0-0. Then you got LW #24 Gellerman 7-2-9, C #20 Moore 0-0-0(11-15 F/O yesterday) and RW #25 Gotovets 5-5-10. Hamilton gave Frosh #42 Charlie Archer his first start of his College career. He was nervous as most Frosh are it just shows itself more in Goal because you are on an island. Then you got Poliziani talking trash after the 1st Goal and the kid could of had a meltdown but credit to the youngster for regaining his composure, playing very well and doing what he does best the rest of the game and that is saving shots.

    I was going to dive into each goal but the Hamilton recap did an excellent job of dissecting each one.

    I love the camera angle at Hamilton. It gives you a different look of the game and allows you to see the defences and what the Goalie sees but the camera guy needs to know what he is doing. He has to correctly anticipate where the puck is going to help him navigate to the best angle. Yesterday it was solid because you need the skill to know when to zoom and when to pull back, how to make soft turns instead of hard rips and not losing any focus. Even the camera guy needs to read the game. The announcer is good except he does struggle pronouncing those big long scary names. He needs to experience one big Italian Easter dinner and he will be fine. The key is not to pronounce the name in one big mouthful. You got to piece it out at first so it would be Camp-o-me-nosi or Po-liz-i-ani. Easter dinner with the yelling and shouting and craziness would I think do the trick.

    It is just confounding that both of these teams are hovering around .500. Trinity had that 4 game losing streak in December but Hamilton has had a tough January. I get it teams have injuries, Covid, crazy travel, bad luck, untimely mistakes, maybe an AWOL but for whatever reason Hamilton have struggled since the break. They were playing well the first two months but now they are similarly like Trinity enigmatic and unable to put a winning streak together. The Hamilton team I saw in Williamstown in December looked more like the team that I saw yesterday. Trinity did get a tough 4 pts out of 6 against two good teams this weekend and they have beaten some very good teams this year. For Hamilton the past month should be forgotten and instead try to build off this Win. A sweep of Trinity is nothing to sneeze at and proves if they focus for a full 60 they have way to much talent to be under .500.

    Rumor has it that Trinity's Captain and motor #9 Cole Poliziani likes to have a small bowl of pasta 2 hours before the game for his pregame meal. He sits in peace and focused alone on the bench. No music, no noise, no questions, no decisions, no Frosh babysitting. From what I hear he likes the pasta fresh, hot and spicy. Yesterday he went to sit down to eat and realized he forgot the spice so he had to walk back to the lockeroom to retrieve. Right about the same time Hamilton Defenceman and Alberta native #8 Max Wutzke came strolling by the benches. His senses were on high alert as he could smell the pasta and was starving. Apparently, in the province of Alberta it is customary if you see food without an owner its yours. The kid pulled just an absolute hit and run as he wolfed it and walked off. Poliziani then came back with his spices smiling away and ready to eat. When he saw that empty bowl and fork with one last bite a rush of blood and steam started welling up the back of his neck straight to his head. All you could hear echo from the locker room was Poliziani ranting and raving about "How nothing gets by him and he WILL figure this all out." Long story short his empty stomach morphed into a complete detonation on the ice as he became unglued five minutes into the game with Wutzke getting the brunt of it in front of his goal after the whistle. Safe to say Poliziani figured it all out. That was "the crazy" of the game I was talking about earlier.

          Williams at Tufts tonight. Interesting lines with the speedy Defenseman #4 Connor Kucharski starting on the 4th Line tonight as a winger. Nice to see HC Kangas give Goalie #33 Cos Lazzarino a start as he had split the Goal with#31 Evan Ruschil in 2019-2020 but has not played as much his Senior year. He did start against Tufts in December. Also, #5 Jack Simon will see his first action of the year as the xtra skater. Scratches maybe because of Covid or injury look to be Ruschil, #10 Jack Forrest, #11 Jacob Eckerle, #19 Jacob Monroe, #20 Henry Muller and #26 Jonah Gold. Muller played against Conn but the rest of them did not play Friday.

            Williams had 2 PPG (#3 Sutton and #6 Lawrick) and a nice SH goal from #13 Tyler Cooligan as Williams defeated Tufts 3-1 in Malden last night. Williams really worked hard and played their game last night. They were organized defensively, stayed in their system and got fantastic goaltending from #33 Cos Laz. Sutton snuck one in the 1st Period as Tufts Goalie #29 Welch got screened and Lawrick scored on a fierce slapper. Tough luck for Tufts Goalie #35 Josh Sarlo who wins the Nescac POW and then for whatever reason did not play last night.

            If I were the Tufts HC today which of course I am not I would be p*ssed. I get it some players get so juiced before a game they NEED to hit someone to release that initial energy but you need to be able to control your emotions and stay within the new rules. Every player is different with all kinds of different personalities, skills and Hockey IQ but one thing everyone is capable of is focus, discipline and respecting your teammates. However there MUST be consequences for these undisciplined and unnecessary penalties and ejections. Penalties like everything else is a strategy and I get it penalties will happen but there has to be a line. So for me this team today should be "Skates off, running shoes on". Oh you want to be crazy undisciplined out there than we are running hills today. When I say "We" I mean Coaching staff as well because it is on them to get this team more disciplined. I get the feeling most Hockey players do not derive pleasure from running so this is a perfect opportunity to show them the pleasure in it. Have at it.

            Tufts really needs a rink on campus as they then could add a Women's program. I get it that space is tight at Tufts but it would just reinvigorate this program with some serious excitement. Look at what Colby's rink has done. Tufts has a big enough endowment and donors to make it happen. It would be great for the league. Tufts Zamboni "broke down" in between the 2nd and 3rd Periods so the Ice in the 3rd Period was what the announcer said would be like playing Pond Hockey. Is this a normal occurrence in Hockey? Seems to me this could even be used as a strategy in big time D1 Hockey. Fake a breakdown if a team is putting on a stick handling and passing clinic and slow the opponent down. I am not questioning the Tufts Zamboni as I am sure it really did break down but was just wondering if this could be a strategy some shady HC would use?

              Conn and Colby finished a hard fought battle 3-3 in New London last night. An excellent effort by both teams and just the beginning for The Mules when it comes to seeing their opponents best effort every game now down the stretch. Colby is now 11-3-1(8-2-1) and Conn 5-8-2(5-6-1) but Conn is playing well right now with a record of 4-1-2 in their last 7 games after a rough start to their season. They do not treat their fans well though as they are 0-4-2 at Home and 5-4-0 on the Road. Conn is sitting in 8th Place right now and their "goal" for the next few weeks before the Nescac Championship should be to finish in the Top 6 or better to avoid that Friday Play-In game.

              1st Period both teams were kind of feeling it out, not taking too many chances and staying within their system. Both were really working hard to try to establish an advantage anywhere on the Ice. Colby players do a nice job in their O Zone without the puck. I like how the players are trying to move towards their teammate with the puck to create a switch and cause confusion for the defense. Conn did a good job in the Neutral Zone disrupting Colby's push and then creating a couple good scoring chances out of it.

              2nd Period #20 Jack Sullivan and the Mules struck first. A shot from the blue line near the boards by Colby D #23 Jalen Kaplan was saved by Conn Senior Goalie #35 Mike McHale with his left pad. He guided the puck to his left to clear it but Sullivan being the gamer that he is was in the right spot at the right time and wide open to bury the rebound. My namesake Conn's #10 Russo got caught sleeping and lost Sullivan and that will happen with Frosh sometimes but the kid Russo is talented and his speed created two breakaway's during the game that he did not bury but you can tell what will be coming in the years ahead. Sullivan for his part 2 minutes later almost had another one as Colby's #3 John McElaney found Sullivan again wide open on the weak side with a great pass. It could have been 2-0 but McHale was up to the task.

              Conn would draw even about 6 minutes later in the 2nd Period. Colby's D #48 Max O'Brien tried to make a tough pass in the neutral zone when Conn's #26 Kei Yasuda read it well and picked it off. Yasuda then started driving to the goal with his speed but because O'Brien immediately realized his mistake and recovered he was fast enough to get between Yasuda and the Goal. Yasuda for his part read that as well because he immediately stopped and cut when he saw what O'Brien had planned. He left O'Brien in his skates with the deke and snapped a wrister from the high slot to beat Colby's Goalie #33 Andy Beran. Yasuda is a high energy guy and wins those faceoffs(11-19 last night) on that 2nd Shutdown line with #12 Senese and #14 Vaughan and was pumped after scoring his first Career Goal.

              Conn IMO has one of the more dangerous Top Line's in Nescac as they lead their team in scoring #1,#2 and #3. LW #21 Paul Capozzi 6-4-10, C #9 Seth Stadheim 3-5-8 and RW #27 Anthony Quatieri 5-5-10. Capozzi is always in the right place and Quatieri I do not know how many times I have seen him snap that wrister from the dot to beat goalies this year on the PP. It has been nasty including the Winner against Midd on Sunday with about 20 seconds left in OT. Stadheim is another workhorse and really compliments his linemates well by being unselfish and hunting the puck. Conn's 2nd Goal was a nice F/O Win for C #9 Stadheim as he got control of the puck and bound around the goal for a wraparound try. There was no way Colby's super cat quick Goalie #33 Andy Beran was getting beat like that but the rebound off the pad bounced right to a wide open Capozzi who buried it.

              3rd Period I have no idea how Conn did not score on its PP in the opening few minutes. The top Line was out there and created about 4 dangerous chances but they could not bury it. It would have been 3-1 and then Conn could have settled into a more cautious defensive zone puck recovery and then dump and chase with a conservative forecheck. It was not to be as Colby evened things up 6 minutes into the period on a PP Goal from Grillo. Some crispy passing from #14 Breitenfeldt, #3 McElaney and then the best from #12 Bourhas on the goaline to a charging #8 Grillo across to the weak side and Colby diced up the Conn PK in a mini 30 second clinic.

              Conn regained the lead two minutes later on Quatieri's PP Goal to make it 3-2. Conn put on it's own clinic with some nice passing between #17 Fournier and Capozzi with again Quatieri scoring as he cannot be given an inch of space over near that dot on the weak side or he will score.

              Colby got the final Goal of the game to even things up 3-3 on a great individual effort by #9 Brian Sanzone as he finished off his own rebound. He worked hard off the puck and retrieved it from #2 Michael Thomas(not sure why no Assist?) in the neutral zone, left two Conn players in the dust and frankly it was like the Red Sea parting as Sanzone had a free wrister to clean up himself and bury it he did.


              Conn seems to have excellent Upperclassman examples(D #5 Radochia, #12 Senese, #13 Uhler, D #17 Fournier, #22 Scheschareg) for the youngsters and really solid Captains in #20 C Chris Adamsons who got player of the game at Hamilton and RW #25 Kyle Shero 1-2-3 who were joined yesterday by LW #10 Russo on Conn's shutdown line. If that line is clicking both ways and Conn's Top Line is scoring and they get good Goaltending they could make a run in a couple weeks. Especially because they will be on the Road and have proven they can Win on the Road this year. Conn has some really good young players and what looks to be a small pipeline from Kimball Union Academy. The Goalie #1 Sean Dynan, #2 John Harrington, #8 Devan Newhook, #9 Seth Stadheim, #10 Russo, #11 Tyler Harvey, #14 Jake Vaughan, #15 Jake Hughes, #18 Bjorn Schuepbach, #26 Yasuda, #28 Sean Detloff and #29 Will Winship. These youngsters have given Conn some great energy and production this year as they have all been chipping in. Vaughan 1-1-2 is a big boy on skates and can rip the slapper but also works real hard. Newhook 1-5-6 is a workhorse and saved a sure Colby Goal yesterday with his hustle off a giveaway and then showed courage by dropping to the ice to block a hard shot later in the period. He leads the team in blocks. Another kid that battles is Schuepbach who is right behind Newhook in blocks. Schuepbach and Hughes 0-2-2 are tough kids and use all of their 5'8 frame out there. Hughes delivers some solid hits which then allows Conn to regain possession. #2 Harrington and #11 Harvey played well as a pairing yesterday. #28 Detloff has not played since the Hamilton game in mid January but he was leading the team in blocks with 13 up until that point. So all these guys they will make some mistakes but the learning process and playing time they are getting now not only is helping today but will really pay off for this program in the years to come.

              Excellent competitive game and stay unafraid in life.

                Tonight 5 Big Games but unfortunately Williams is still keeping athletic events closed except to those in its testing nest. Amherst and Williams since at least I have been breathing always have to be different. They always have to go above the rest of the schools in the league in just the slightest ways. It is what it is. The rest of Nescac seems fine with allowing outside spectators as long as they are vaccinated and masked but Amherst made a quick snap decision and of course Williams follows suit. I feel really badly for the parents because you only have so many more chances to see your kid compete and play before he wanders off into the real world. Seasons and Hockey careers ending are very hard for some athletes and maybe not so hard on others but usually the parent can sense when the end is coming as they start to really cherish every moment they can watch their kid in person especially Seniors. Moving On.....

                5 Games:

                Trinity(-1 1/2) at Midd 5

                Amherst at Colby(-1/2) 5 1/2

                Wes at Williams (PK) 5

                Hamilton at Bowdoin(PK) 4

                Conn(-1/2) at Tufts 5 1/2

                    Looks like Amherst at Colby has been postponed until potentially Sunday due to inclement weather. And I agree with bakdraft21 that your posts are quite informative for those who care about NESCAC hockey.

                      Thanks....I get it Nescac Hockey is not totally respected but the key is that I care. So I will keep writing because I am just fascinated with this Sport. Yes you are correct it looks like Amherst / Colby is postponed to Sunday which I am not sure is about snowstorm travel because Hamilton is making the same trip(they are travel partners) tonight to Bowdoin. Either way I will not complain as it gives us another Sunday showcase. I fully expect Amherst and Hamilton to give Colby a very tough weekend.

                        My understanding is that Hamilton travelled yesterday.

                          This league is absolutely ridiculous with the NSN streaming. Colby and Conn give free access to all their Home games anytime you want to watch after the fact. You then have some schools do the same but throw up a paywall which is understandable I suppose for On-Demand games. Then you have Williams and Amherst which do NOT even allow an On Demand service. If you do not watch a webcast live you will have to wait until the NCAA Championship in that sport has concluded before you can watch any games from the season. As if the game was never played and disappeared into thin air. You have ten teams and they should ALL follow the same procedure. How is it fair to Colby and Conn who should be applauded for not being "scared" of getting scouted. All the games should be ON all the time. If you want to throw up a paywall fine but what Williams and Amherst do is not right especially with parents BEING UNABLE TO ATTEND HOME GAMES at those respective schools.

                          Then you have last night.....

                          Amherst athletics does not properly plan for a snow storm and have to then rearrange all their teams schedules. Ok fine but now for Hockey Amherst and Colby have an advantage for Saturday. They unlike Hamilton and Bowdoin will have not played a game while Hamilton and Bowdoin played last night. Also, both Amherst and Colby Coaching Staff's would be able to scout the game either live(Colby) or on the stream(Amherst). Bowdoin apparently had had enough and decided not to broadcast the stream. Unless I am missing something and please someone correct me if I am wrong but my HUNCHis that both Bowdoin and Hamilton did not think it fair that Amherst and Colby not only get a free rest day but also a free "viewing party" of their game. So they decided to "cut the cord". Do these people realize how many parents have not been able to go to games live for the past month and a half? Do they know how many of these families reside in Canada or elsewhere in the United States and RELY on the stream to see their kid? Maybe they gave access to only families before the game somehow but I highly doubt it. I understand it is not fair what Amherst and Colby had to do but because of Amherst's poor planning those Hamilton and Bowdoin parents unable to attend live got smacked in the face. Oh and by the way your tuition bill is due in 2 weeks.

                          You should WANT people to watch your games especially recruits. You should want your opponents to scout your really good juicy games to get the opponent worried about this and that. Scouting happens and yes you can get a good feel for players strengths and weaknesses and what a team is trying to do in that game but it also can screw you up. You start to overthink and plan for this and that because you saw the opponent do something on the stream but then when you play that team they are doing something completely different. That is why unpredictability and adaptability is so important for a team to have. Unless you watch a team 3-5 times before you play them you will not know everything and certainly you will get fooled by something. That being said it still is an advantage when it comes to watching individual players and what they can or cannot do well. This is why the same procedures for all schools need to be in place with an option to view the game On-Demand. Each individual school can then decide whether to have a paywall or not.

                          Yes this is kind of a rant but all teams should be on level ICE. No "cut the cord Bill", No "games disappearing into thin air", No "Roger make sure you either break off one of the Zamboni's gaskets or kill the water valve after the 2nd if we are getting smoked" and NO " shenanigans". Level Ice....Finito

                            A little love for Wes:

                            After defeating Williams 3-0 last night Wesleyan improved to 8-8-2(7-4-2). They have now Won three consecutive Road games and are 5-2-2 on the Road this year with another Road game at Midd today. You get the feeling Wes remembered the 6-1 drubbing Williams put on them a couple weeks back as Williams was rubbing it in their face a bit in Middletown. You also get the feeling Wes is really hungry to finish what they started in 2019-20. They lost Sestak, Harris, Fox and a couple others but still have a good core from that team. They won the Nescac Championship but the NCAA's were cancelled because of Covid and it looks like they want their chance that was taken from them. They are the defending Nescac Champs until someone knocks them off and are starting to get some consistent Goaltending which is absolutely going to make or break this dangerous team. It was going to be impossible to replace Goalie Tim Sestak '20 right away and all 3 Goalies that Wes have used this year #30 Erik Voloshin, #31 Marc Smith and #1 Nate Romanelli have had some growing pains. However, the past 3 Games Marc Smith has started to find his rhythm and I would keep going to him because he is in a zone right now and you do not want to lose that. This team does not have that one super top line but what they do have is the ability to roll 4 lines without losing much. I guess I mean to say they have considerable depth offensively. I remember #13 Danny Sorabella, #15 Colin Cobb #16 Stevie O'Connor and #19 Wiggle Kerbrat from Championship weekend in Williamstown 2 years ago. Those four work their butt off and O'Connor single handily frustrated Trinity so much in that Championship game he had the whole Trin team ready to go for him. O'Connor is not scared to play the villain and does not care whether teams like him or not. I really respect that as there are too many guys worried about what others are thinking and you can tell he could care less. Defensively they are just as deep and talented. #22 Matt Zandi and #2 Emmet Powell are incredibly skilled defenseman and excellent puck carriers. They have #7 Jake LaChance who scored a "wicked wristah" over Williams Frosh Goalie #30 Cal Sandquist left shoulder as he made a great read off the puck from the point to get in position down on the dot and was able to squeeze one on goal. Movement off the puck is absolutely critical in this Sport. #4 Tiger Bjornland, #5 Mike Dunderdale and #28 Liam Donelan are just good athletes and very good D-Men. Wes is one of the deepest teams in the league and if they can keep the Goalie Smith this confident then they will be in very good position to defend their Nescac Championship.

If you want to throw up a paywall fine but what Williams and Amherst do is not right especially with parents BEING UNABLE TO ATTEND HOME GAMES at those respective schools.
                              I remember from a couple of years ago watching one of the Wesleyan broadcast games on NSN and having the announcer essentially begging for donations to the Wesleyan atheletic department because NSN was charging $50,000 per year to stream their games and the athletics department didn't have the budget for that. I get that video streaming is expensive, and that video hosting is expensive because bandwidth is expensive. And based upon your description I could easily reverse engineer the access tiers NSN offers for their services. The advertising on the site isn't going to support that, I don't need to login or create accounts to view games which I really like. And the broadcast a number high school sports.

                              I agree, it would be nice to have more access to the video streams would be nice. And if you're a parent or alumni or connected to the school you might be able to ask for a login to get access.

                                Trinity at Williams 3pm -Trinity looks to be without their big Defenseman #8 Jacob Borgida who did not play at Midd but other than that they had their usual lineup. Borgida is a good player for them and Williams might benefit with him out. Still though Williams was without #12 Mac Carso, #17 Connor Tobin, #19 Jacob Monroe and #20 Henry Muller among others last night v Wes. Good to see #10 Jack Forrest back and I know he is trying to be unselfish and a good teammate / linemate this season but I'd really like to see him get just a bit more selfish right now like Carso just until the team can get going on the offensive end. Either way his speed and 2 way game is much needed back in the lineup and his work ethic has been fantastic all year. Another guy that needs to get going for Williams is #25 Nick Altmann. He had numbers of 11-5-16 in 2019-20 but is 2-4-6 right now. #9 Niko was 12-8-20 in 2019-20 and now is 3-7-10 but really playing banged up you can tell. He is their warrior leader for sure and has the courage to get his *ss in front of the goal and sits there until someone proves they can clear him out but I am hoping some of these guys can get going starting today. These guys along with Carso are their horses offensively. While there has been some mistakes on the D end its nothing out of the ordinary for any team and frankly Lawrick, Sutton, Alsaif have all been chipping in offensively. Williams has also gotten stellar play from its Goalies so now we need to get it going in the O zone.
