Of course, it also helps that the UConn defense was basically a glorified PK unit just clogging the middle of the zone trying to prevent side-to-side passing and any close-up scoring chances. I was a bit disappointed in what we saw from our old conference rivals. I was hoping they'd come in looking more like a Hockey East team than a big slow team with a lack of aggressiveness that plays more like it's afraid to give up a goal than it wants to score. At times during that contest if you didn't know which team was which, you would have thought that UConn were the team from the AHC just trying to hang on and keep the score down against the superior skill and speed of a competitive Hockey East team rather than the other way around (i.e. RIT against BC). RIT won nearly every single race for a loose puck and one-on-one battle that there was. Although calling them races and battles is questionable as most appeared to be uncontested. UConn seemed to be the spectators most of that game (except for the goalie, of course).
