    Pre-Game Babson Hype:

    https://***********/i/status/1505205301133332485

    Babson getting real good at these I wonder if they will get a chance to produce another one after tonight?

    I think the Babson at SUNY Geneseo Game will be real interesting. I saw Geneseo at Williams in January and thought they were dangerous. Geneseo Won 3-0 but Williams had them 0-0 late in the 2nd and that is when Geneseo used its depth and ripped the Game open late in the 2nd on the PP and then in the 3rd. Both Babson and Geneseo play similarly with speed in transition so will Babo come at them to begin the Game and take a risk? Or will Babson play a more cautious Game and take advantage of any opportunities given? I hope Babson goes at them and tries to find a Goal or two early and then play off their Goalie #30 Brad Arvanitis who has been playing very well.

    4:45am. Get em Up.

    I wanted to congratulate Babson on their 3-0 Win over Trinity as I will recap the game when I get a chance in a day or two. A very competitive Game that in the end basically came down to Babson burying two of their chances and Trinity unable to score on any of their looks. Trinity had some real juicy opportunities but could not solve Babson G #30 Brad Arvanitis. I thought heading into the 3rd Period down 1-0 Trin would still find a way to Win the Game because I actually felt that Trinity slightly outplayed Babson in the 1st and 2nd Periods. Trinity however just could not score as once Babson found their 2nd Goal in the 3rd Period to make it 2-0 they clamped down hard for the final fifteen minutes and was just too experienced and disciplined to make any bad mistakes that Trinity could pounce on. I will recap it...Good Game.


    I caught the UNE v Plymouth State Game which was highly entertaining. UNE has a nice facility and their students and locals gave it a great atmosphere for the Game. I Love the extra High Ceiling to give the place a real spacious feel. The Plymouth State Seniors were devastated with the heartbreaking loss as I think it was in the opening minute of the 2nd OT when UNE scored. Plymouth State Goalie was playing well all Game but UNE had some zip in the step right out of the gates and the kid broke in and jammed the thing home. Place went nuts.

    And there are so many options for recruits. I think you really need to establish a personal connection, which, again, takes time, and make your program stand out from the others. It probably doesn't hurt to have an education degree or two.

    Trinity Inside View:


    https://***********/i/status/1501786852629614597


    So I had this from earlier this week:


    Early 5AM Tuesday Line "subject to change" is a Pick Em':

    Babson (19-5-2) -120 Over 5.5 +130
    Trinity (17-7-1) Even Under 5.5 -110


    No changes even though I just counted actual Calendar Days of which Babson has played a Game and since Feb 13th they have played 3 Games. That is 3 Games in 27 Days which is a ton of rest and getting guys back from injury. Plenty of practice time to fine tune everything so that could be an advantage for Babo or on the flip you could say maybe the team might need a Period to get "clicking" again as a team in a competitive Game. Usually though all that rest at the end of a season is never a bad thing especially when trying to get injured players back in the lineup. Also they still played 1 Game a week so they were not off for 2 weeks like the Bye teams now have. I feel like 2 weeks without a Game could become problematic for certain teams.

It is becoming a Young Man's Game with all the recruiting.

    Trinity at Babson it is...The Game was supposed to be played in late December but got postponed and surprisingly never got made up. This will be a great Game pitting two very good teams against each other. Trinity showcased an impressive defensive formation all Weekend up at Colby and stymied a very good Colby team on its Home Ice. They showed an effective 1-2-2 Neutral Zone Trap or I would call it a Conservative Forecheck as the focus and discipline for Trinity was in protecting their netminder #35 JP Mella from seeing any dangerous chances or shots. Their D-men took away the effectiveness of Colby's Top Line including their best player #8 Grillo as Trinity had the depth to keep putting fresh legs on all of Colby's best offensive players the entire Game. Their depth is obviously a huge advantage. The way they have been playing in their defensive formation has been "fantastico" as they have been suffocating opponents Puck Carriers and teams trying to enter their D Zone. Trinity is focused on protecting Mella but also stifling the opponent thru the Neutral Zone and taking full "go" of their Opponent's mistakes and cough up's. Trinity has been forcing their Opponents into key turnovers in really bad areas of the Ice, pouncing on them and then taking full advantage of the "helpfulness" of their Opponents by scoring off them. It completely sucked the air out of Colby's building on 4 different occasions. Colby had easily the best "Atmosphere" for a Nescac Championship all Weekend and should be very proud of all they accomplished this season. I would hang a Regular Season Banner. Why not? It should be celebrated even though it did not earn them an NCAA bid. I still think Colby would of represented Nescac very well in the NCAA's and could have found a Win or 2. For Trinity I fully expect them to play the same against Babson as they have been playing for the past 2-3 Weeks. They have found something right now that is working very well for them. Babson has some serious Offensive weapons as they can easily roll 4 Lines with Trinity so it will be an interesting match up with the question being which team can dig deepest and gut it out.


    Early 5AM Tuesday Line "subject to change" is a Pick Em':

    Babson (19-5-2) -120 Over 5.5 +130
    Trinity (17-7-1) Even Under 5.5 -110

    Trinity's 3rd Line is composed of 2 Frosh and a Soph #27 Boysen, #16 Siffringer and #13 Tongue and is one of the more dangerous Line's in the League and the League has barely seen it yet because of Trinity's Top 2 Lines. They hunt the Puck so well and will be HUGE in this stretch run in the NCAA's. Babson will be extra focused on Trinity's Top 2 Lines and they should be because Trinity's Top 2 Lines are just as dangerous as Babson's Top 2 Lines but it is this 3rd Line that might be able to cause the most damage under the radar(no one reads this crap) and against tired legs. This Line has been earning extra playing time in the 2nd Half of the Season and could very well be tearing up the League next Year.

    More to follow...Congrats also to Salisbury (23-5-0) for besting Belmont Hill. Kent over Brunswick and Pomfret over Fred Gunn.

    It is 4pm on Sunday March 6th and Trinity is now in the process of eating up its 3rd straight Nescac opponent in the Nescac Conference Tournament. They have a 3-0 lead on Colby with about four min left in the 3rd. Trinity has still yet to give up a Goal in this Tournament and have shown to be dominant in the last weeks of this season having not had a Game since Wesleyan gave them a 3-2 Game 2 weeks ago on that Friday night where Wesleyan looked to be a serious contender but Trinity was just too much. Too much talent on display all over the Ice at all times and just so adept at taking advantage of ANY mistakes their opponent makes. Trinity has also shown a focus and work ethic that mixed with their talent is just to much for any Nescac team right now to overcome. Every team really needs to try to mimic the Trinity recruiting machine in their own way with their own school and admissions. Obviously that is easier said than done but not impossible so they have to come up with different recruiting strategies if they are to overcome Trinity getting to 6 straight Nescac Champioships and Winning 4 of them. Trinity in the NCAA's to me will be real interesting. I think they have enough talent to Win It All if everything bounces their way and they stay focused and motivated they can beat anyone on any given day. More to follow...Congrats to Trinity and good luck in the NCAA's as I hope they represent Nescac with Class and just Winning. Go mow them down.

    Do not forget....

    Salisbury v Belmont Hill 5pm https://www.myhockeylive.com/watch/l...PdnrH6Bm32VL8n

    Feel real bad for the KUA Goalie who got screened and then lost sight of the Puck to lose the Game last night v Salisbury in OT on Home Ice the "Open" Semi and then Belmont Hill upsetting Avon in the other Semi. Brunswick looked pretty dominant in the little I saw in the "Large Division" but in that "Small Division" The Frederick Gunn School was running a clinic against Governor's Acad

    So did "they" get it right? Any serious omissions? IMO some looks good and some not so good. I see 3 exclusions from the All-Nescac Team that have a legitimate complaint but I suppose there are only so many spots but only 7 of 10 teams even represented with Midd, Conn and Amherst getting the overall "snub". This should never happen which is why there should be a 3rd Team.
