    Correia and MacKay will be greatly missed next year! Hopefully PSU can work some more transfer portal magic for 2023-2024.

    Finally Top 9 NPI...need to sweep the rest of the way and can't falter to a low end team. Otherwise it could be win CHA Tournament or bust. Like this group a lot. Good Coach and some high end talent!

    Zanon plays like Arteri Panarin and Janecke plays like a Tkachuk. Both made the NHL All Star game, but both would not necessarily play on the same line even though they are both all stars. Janecke plays 100 percent center which has a lot of responsibility in the Kampersal scheme. I think Janecke and Zanon can have success with anyone they play with and Zanon who plays Center only some of the time this year, has been unleashed as a wing and has allowed her to be the playmaker that she is. Going back to last year there could be recency bias as the Heising and Zanon stack did not pay dividends in the playoffs.

    Playing three lines consistently and sometimes four has paid dividends in the last six games as PSU has owned the third period.

    I'm going out on a limb because I haven't really focused on it, but I think Tessa Janecke gets moved around and not always matched with Kiara Zanon. I suppose that would be Kampersal's way of kind of "spreading the wealth", if that makes sense. I did notice in the later part of the game today Janecke and Zanon were back on the same line. Like I said, though, I haven't been paying a lot of attention to lines this season, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Have you gotten your hockey star a Penn State jersey yet?
    Lol must have got lost in the mail! ;-)

    Just want to say how much I appreciate your CHA commentary guys! I’ve been busy with my kids hockey but still following along and enjoying reading here.

    Penn State, Mercyhurst, and Syracuse have all secured playoff berths, so it's down to Lindenwood and RIT battling for the final spot in the CHA tournament. They each have 8 more possible points, with Lindenwood ahead of RIT by only 2 points right now. In November at RIT, Lindenwood swept by scores of 1-0 and 2-1 in OT, so they're more closely matched than I would've thought. They both do enjoy playing spoiler, too.

    I would love to know what was said in the locker room today after the second period at Syracuse, because Penn State really turned it up in the third period, after letting the second kind of get away from them. I noticed that Julie Gough was a scratch today, but she went down hard in last night's game and took some trainer attention before she left the ice, so I hope she's okay. What it meant, though, was that lines for today had to get shuffled, but the team managed it well.

    I hope RIT can find a way to finish ahead of Lindenwood - I don't like Lindenwood and how they play (cheap and chippy).

    Questions: How many Syracuse players are in the portal if any? Is the Lindenwood coach on the hotseat if they don't make the playoffs? With PSU off next weekend, the Lindenwood and RIT games may be worth tuning into. Zed is absolutely right on Syracuse having free streaming being fantastic. Zanon should be in the running for the Kazmaier. Mercyhurst won today 3-0 against RIT.

    Penn State sweeps Syracuse by a score of 4-1 on goals from Kiara Zanon, Tessa Janecke, Elleri MacKay, and Mallory Uihlein. Both teams took two penalties in the third, and shots on goal were 35-19 for Penn State. Penn State really turned it on in the third period and made Ariel Desmet play her best in net for Syracuse, which she did today.

    After two it's still scoreless at Syracuse. No penalties in that period, and Penn State leads the shots on goal by 22-13. Syracuse really started to gel in the second half of that period, and Penn State was back to taking too long to clear their defensive zone. Too much waiting to react instead of going after it. I hate heading into a third period scoreless, when it's looking like a single goal could win the game.

    After one at Syracuse it's scoreless. Both teams took one penalty and Penn State leads the shots on goal by 9-6. Syracuse looks better than yesterday, but they're not getting any chances to set up a play. It looked like a typical first period.

    It turns out Flanagan was a pretty good coach would be my takeaway. Bothun gets a shutout against Syracuse.

    Mercyhurst tied RIT 1-1 tonight, so the best they can finish with in the CHA is 25 points. Penn State has 23 with tonight's win, with a possibility of finishing with 29 at season's end. The best Syracuse can finish with is 21 points if they win out.

    A win for Penn State tomorrow and a win or tie at RIT wins the CHA regular season.

    And that's a wrap - Penn State takes game one by a score of 7-0 on third period goals from Mya Vaslet, Alyssa Machado, Kiara Zanon, and Olivia Wallin. Shots on goal were 25-19 for Penn State. Penn State stayed on the gas and looked like they decided that 3-0 wasn't good enough for them.
