    After yesterday's game with Mercyhurst crushing Syracuse, Mercyhurst pulled to within .008 of Syracuse in the CHA standings, and if they win again today they will take over first place and Syracuse will drop to third behind Penn State. Since Penn State can't move with this weekend at LIU being a non-conference series, they'll have to wait to see where they finish after next weekend's final regular season series vs RIT. Today, before any hockey is played, the standings look like this:

    Syracuse - .700
    Mercyhurst - .692
    Penn State - .667

    If Mercyhurst wins at Syracuse again, and I'm doing the math right, the standings will change to this:

    Mercyhurst - .714
    Penn State - .667
    Syracuse - .656

    Today's game with Penn State at LIU is at 2:00 (Eastern), with free video streaming here: http://necfrontrow.com/game/9316

    I guess that's what we'd call variance. I imagine that the Orange will win tomorrow, as that's usually how things go in the CHA.

    One interesting note: in a game where goals were coming fast and furious, neither Natalie Heising nor Kiara Zanon scored a goal. In a 10-0 game, you would expect both of them to score, and at least one of them to score more than once.

    And this one ends with Penn State winning 10-0 on third period goals from Rachel Weiss, Izzy Heminger, and Olivia Wallin to finish with a hat trick. Shots on goal were 55-6 for Penn State, and LIU took two penalties to one for Penn State. Nothing to say about this game...it was literally all Penn State from start to finish. They're back at it tomorrow at 2:00 (Eastern).

    After two at LIU, it's Penn State up 7-0 on goals from Julie Gough, Mya Vaslet, Anna Promersberger, and Olivia Wallin with her second of the game. Shots on goal are 38-6 for Penn State, and LIU took the only penalty. (Edit: Penn State pulled Josie Bothun and put Cam Leonard in net, since Bothun wasn't getting any work anyway).

    Mercyhurst destroying Syracuse 6-0 so far is music to a Penn State fan's ears!

    After one at LIU, Penn State is up 3-0 on goals from Karley Garcia, Lyndie Lobdell, and Olivia Wallin. Penn State leads the shots on goal by 12-4, and there were no penalties in the period. There's not much to say so far - LIU has done nothing, and Penn State has just run this game from the start. Their first goal was on their first shot on goal, and it was downhill from there. As the announcers have pointed out many times now, whenever LIU does get into the Penn State zone they're ambushed and outnumbered on the puck, so they can't get anything going. If there's even a hint of a downside, Penn State almost looks like they're not sure what to do when they dictate play so easily. Now watch LIU come back and score 15 goals.

    Penn State and LIU face off tomorrow and Saturday at Long Island in the last non-conference matchup of the season for Penn State. How to scout LIU? I have no idea, because I'm completely unfamiliar with the NEWHA teams. LIU is on top in NEWHA, but does that mean they're good, or good "for being a NEWHA team"? Again, I have no idea, and I'm not trying to dismiss them or disrespect them. Anyway, my quick look at their schedule and results showed the only big surprise being a win at Mercyhurst in January...how did that happen? And LIU did win the NEWHA championship in their first season a couple years ago, so there's talent there. I really hope Penn State stays on the gas for this series.

    From what I've seen online, it looks like the video streams for NEWHA games are free, so that's cool.

    Tomorrow's game is at 3:00 (Eastern), with video streaming here: http://necfrontrow.com/game/9146

    I'd like PSU to focus on the team having some different looks on the front end to make the team less predictable. For example: Heising with Connolly and Carriochi (Carriochi and Connolly could be the forecheckers from hell and Heising could read and react which I think is her strong suit.), Zanon(put the playmaker with two sharpshooters) Gough and Wallin, putting Gough and Dobson in front of the net on the pp (if Desmet and or Nystrom are seeing everything (Block their view), Byrnes with Zanon and Heising. Rolling four lines to get everyone engaged and to keep everyone fresh.


    One thing is for sure, there were not enough goals scored against Mercyhurst and Syracuse. Now is the time to experiment on the front end, he already has the lines he has been using in his back pocket. Adopt the we are going to put you in the blender theme and see if some stretch magic can happen.
