    Maine @ New Hampshire

    If UNH sweeps, and UML gets 3/4, UNH wins #1 seed...and quite likely faces Maine again in the quarterfinals. I'm never a fan of a scenario that has you facing one team 5 games in a row.

    I am hoping to see a UNH team using this weekend not just for a (somewhat meaningless) regular season, but as a postseason warm up.

    Maine is in 8th. that's all I know of them.

    discuss.

    If Maine loses both games against UNH, it will fall to 9th place unless UMass loses both games to Merrimack. Maine is currently ahead of UMass by just one point. However, UMass has the tiebreaker (most wins in conference play), so the Black Bears have to get at least the same number of points as UMass next weekend to stay in 8th place and go to the tournament.

    Over the last half of the season (exception Vermont game), Maine has improved their quality of play and the young players have developed much more confidence. They recently won and lost on the larger ice sheet at the Mullins Center. Their win was a 2-0 shutout. Maine is capable of at least splitting this weekend at the Whittemore Center. Maine certainly has the urgency and motivation, UNH perhaps not quite as much.

    From being around the team, their focus has been on winning as many games as possible. While this might seem like a rather obvious statement - don't let the sentiment that Maine has "more to play for" in regards to their playoff lives in Hockey East - let you think that UNH will not take the games seriously. UNH always "gets up" for Maine at the Whit, and they are not scoreboard watching. The mentality is that they have to win every game. Expect UNH to come out hungry like they did Saturday night against UMass. Hopefully the place is loud - not holding my breath for that though.

    Re: Maine @ New Hampshire

    I think we see a split this weekend. Maine is more than due for a win there. I'm pretty sure the last time Maine won was when Lucas Lawson kicked the puck in right at the death.

    What is going on with UNH's attendance? The games I've seen on tv it looks pretty empty.

    That was in Manchester, not at the Whitt.

    Corporate season ticket holders, who rarely show up, except for perhaps the second period on occasion.

    You are correct, as UNH won 4-2 at the Verizon the night before Lawson kicked in the 3-2 game winner with 7 seconds left in OT at Lake Whitt. Maine won the regular season series that year, with a 2-1 OT win in Orono earlier in the season.

    Per Hockey East's website UNH's average attendance this season is 5,390 (capacity: 6,501); 2nd highest in the league after BC. Maine's average attendance is 4,201 (capacity:5,641); 5th and just 10 people per game ahead of UMass at 6th.

    Those numbers are rubbish. There is no way Maine is anywhere near 4,200 a game and from what I've seen on tv UNH is a lot less than 5,400.

    Agreed...as someone who has been in the Whitt for games this year, those might be tickets "sold" but they don't reflect the actual presence at the games

    It's the old tickets sold not actual butts in the seats trick.

    UNH has been putting the screws to season ticket holders for quite a while now. It had started to catch up with them recently and the bad year the team had last year has really had an effect on attendance this year. I had season tickets for many years and we decided to drop them before this season. Looks like my friends and I weren't the only ones to make that choice. The poor performance of the team last year was a small factor for us, but in reality STHs have been treated like "suckers" for a while now.

    Since the days of the "every game, automatic sell-out" are long gone, UNH started offering discounts/buy-one get one 1/2 off sorts of promotions on tickets to some games - STHs pay full price, guy who goes to one game a year gets a deal. They continue to put games in Manchester, games that STHs are forced to buy at full price - then months later they start selling tickets to the general public at about 1/2 of what I paid and gave them food vouchers along with the tickets. Also not a fan of having to pay full price for mid-season exhibition games.
    Are you guys brothers?
