    The ones who played were very impressive. Dockery has chops on defense. Dillinger (spelling?) is big and fast on offense, looks like a new Niezgoda in terms of size and mass. Erickson, the D1 transfer, also made some really nice stops and a few good transition moves. I'm sure there are more, those are just the ones I can remember off the noggin'.

    I was able to turn it on last night for the third. As the stats show, it was a rough game (14 penalties combined - 5 on Norwich and 9 on USM to include a couple majors). In the past I know we've talked about the rough teams (thinking NEC) giving NU some problems, so maybe this was part of the struggles, but Norwich still fired off 44 shots. I was surprised to see it tied after 1 and then after 2, so maybe someone who saw the first two periods can shed some more light.

    Off topic but related, if you're a fan of Norwich sports then the football team plays a BIG one today against Husson with conference title hopes on the line. Kickoff at noon in Bangor. Go Cadets!

    I think you will find out USM has a pretty darn good goalie: very underrated!!!

    I only caught the 1st period against DW and checked in on the final score after dinner out with my family. I am impressed that Nick Pichette got 3 goals again (see Ex. game with Champlain College) and an assist. I have always felt that Nick provides unbelievable speed and fore checking and I am glad he came up big tonight. He is always hustling and never gives up. Flaherty and Salvuccci also had excellent nights. Overall, we have some gelling to do but this team definitely has old and new skilled players that with time should be as competitive as the Cadets of past years. I am hopeful!

    Only second home game I've missed since I've been here.

    While I'm obviously pleased with the results, I'm fighting off a growing sense of concern...

    In two blowouts (the exhibition and today) a freshman has yet to score a goal. Given our struggles putting the puck in the net last year, I'm worried that we may find ourselves in the same boat when it counts. Can someone please talk me down??

    Nick Pichette is going to lead the team in points this year.

    Certainly looks that way currently.

    According to the stats of the first 3 official games, rookies have 1 goal (A game winner for Jackson vs So. Maine) and a total of 5 assists (Dockery- 3, Jackson- 1, and Erickson- 1). Again, lines are changing, McShane is working his magic to find the right combos, and the team needs time to gel. I am more hopeful this season than last.

    I'm more concerned with how the freshmen play in close game situations than in blowout games. I'm inclined to think that if a player is capable of scoring in a tight game, when it matters, that's what really counts. In blowouts, it seems pretty common for the freshmen to pass the puck off to established goal scorers (Nick Pichette).

    On that note, Pichette is on a hot streak for sure. Good to see a big night from Flaherty and Salvucci. Hopefully the streak continues this weekend against NEC and St. A's. According to the Norwich instagram, sophomore Cam Beecy got his first collegiate goal this past weekend as well. Good to see the (small) sophomore class making some waves.

    Since no one seemed to get my point, let's just pretend I didn't post it. Deal?

    Looking forward to this weekend. Go Cadets!

    Prez is ths going to be Norwich's last game at St. A's Friday night? In past years the games at Sullivan Arena have always been very exciting. With the league going to 7 teams next year any chance another team will be added?

    Tomorrow's game and the home game later this year are the only schedule games vs. Saint Anselm currently. I'm sure if Saint Anselm's situation were to change some day Norwich would certainly jump at the opportunity to get the Hawks back on the schedule as it has always been a good game with a strong NU turnout down in Manchester too.

    Very impressive performance last night at St. A's ... I think that is what they would call the perfect road game ... seemed like the Cadets had the puck most of the third period ... the home team seemed to be out of gas ... tough assignment today at NEC ... they took 53 shots and scored seven times last night aginst St. Mike's.
    A question for anyone who was at the game last night. What did you think of the St. A's student section. I know I am going to sound like the old goat yelling "Get off my lawn!" but I thought the way they were shaking the glass was way over the line. I love the enthusiasm ... wish we had more of that a Kreitzberg ... but I thought that group was over the line. How think you?

    I disagree, I think that we're used to smaller crowds. Recently went to a Div I football game, and what I saw at St. A's was nothing in comparison. I think it's healthy to let the students blow off some steam after a long week of classes by supporting their team. I did notice that they left with around 10 minutes left in the third, though.

    Brandrup's step and shot last night was absolutely a thing of beauty. Let's hope they can pull off another W today.

    It wasn't the size of the crowd ... we get more people ... and I loved the noise and excitement ... but to me the glass shaking is over the line ... not to mention dangerous.

    Agree. No problem with anything other than the glass shaking. That's garbage.

    Fan "enthusiasm" is very much, um, regulated at all Norwich home events - in Kreitzberg or otherwise. It's a bit of a shame, IMO. Aside from foul language, I'm on board with just about anything.

    If you want student excitement at a Norwich game then you need to go to a club game. Then again, you want to talk about going over the line, I've seen everything from cadets (small c) hanging over the glass and taking swings at opposing players as they came down the ice to rooks getting in a tussle (wouldn't go as far as to call it a fight) with opposing parents who were tired of the heckling, along with some very politically incorrect chants that challenged the goalie's sexuality.

    Closest thing I ever saw to that at a varsity game was the 2012 exhibition game against some Canadian team. The Corps did a march down for the game and it was just students in the arena. Things got heated on and off the ice and after the Cadets won in overtime I had a front row seat behind the visiting bench when a couple opposing players started talking back to some cadets (again, small c) who were mercilessly heckling them on the bench the entire game. One thing led to another, a cadet got slapped in the face with a stick, which prompted him to try to come over the glass and take a few swings as his cadet brethren supported him by launching a volley of trash towards the bench.

    Man, great times.

    It's about the kids. Love stories like this from the college atmospheres.
