    • Heading to OT tied 1-1...against Union...that's how this game has gone.

      • And just like that, Union wins it in OT and earned it.

        • That's a bad loss and destroys any push upwards in the rankings. Oh well, time to right the ship before it is a catastrophic weekend. Coming out of the break is not easy for some teams. That's a disappointing fan turnout for a Friday 6 pm game.

            Sigh. It was a frustrating game to watch. I was also disappointed in the turnout. Students aren't back yet as classes start Monday and that means a lot of faculty/staff may not be back yet either. There's a snowstorm coming tomorrow which probably means another low attendance game.

              Nice to see DeSa get some time in goal. The team didn't do her any favors by only putting one puck in the net.

                Josie Bothun and Annie Spring are both senior goalies, and Katie DeSa is a sophomore, so she's it next year (unless we're still in the bonus year stuff next season and Bothun stays for a fifth year). I'm glad Kampersal put DeSa in net, and I hope she gets today's game, too. I didn't see Bothun on the bench and dressed for the game yesterday, so I hope she's okay. Hopefully everyone shook off the rust yesterday and they get back to their game today - yesterday wasn't a very good look, but not a big surprise after almost a month off. It should be some fun hockey today.

                1:00 (Eastern) game time!

                • Yes, the colorful BU coach had some great quotes and one of them was "you never know what you are going to get after break on who has been getting ice, who has been sitting around and etc.". Penn State for the most part has been dishing it out to other teams after the break and yesterday it reversed.

                  Nice on Desa getting a chance, the team did have 15 Blocks, but yes the team broke the golden rule of putting up three goals.

                  Sometimes you run into a hot goalie.

                  I'm sure the locker room has been anything but warm and fuzzy this morning after last night's debacle.

                    Bothun was not on the bench yesterday and she's not on the line chart today so I hope she's back by next week. Bothun & Spring are eligible for a 5th year next year. There were no goalies announced as 2024 signees so I'm guessing Josie is planning to be back.

                    • After one, it's Penn State up 2-0 on goals from Lyndie Lobdell and Karolina Hengelmuller. Shots on goal are 14-5 for Penn State, and Union took the only two penalties. Man, it's a whole different Penn State team today, and they look like themselves again. Annie Spring got the start in net today for Penn State.

                      • After two, Penn State is up 4-2 on goals from Katelyn Roberts and Julie Gough. Union took two more penalties, and the shots on goal are 27-11 for Penn State.

                        • Penn State takes game two by a score of 6-2 on goals from Mya Vaslet and Stella Retrum. Union took the only penalty of the period, but it was a five-minute major that cost them two goals. Shots on goal were 48-14 for Penn State.

                          • That's more like it. Consistency moving forward is going to be the key. Nothing like giving up a goal 24 seconds into the period to make things more stressful and the staff will have to start banging the drum on no goals in the first two minutes or last two minutes of a period.

                            • I didn't even notice it, but Penn State didn't take a single penalty today...that's a bit of a rarity this season, so good for them!
