    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    We lost lopsidedly in our new home ... ugh

    Football scored at least 31 points for the 3rd game in a row but is 0-3 in those games ... DOUBLE ugh

    That said, I believe I read on Twitter that BU dressed FOUR 1st-round draft picks

McEachern sees his shot with 12 seconds left go off the goalies glove (Gardner? Something like that) and then off the post.

    1991 - the very next fall, the pre-season #1 Terriers blow a 5-goal lead at home (also did the same against Michigan) and lose something like 8-6.
    Sacco Amonte and Mceachern were one hell of a line. I remember the game well.

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    I thought we started out well enough, generated some chances, but BU was just too much. Played a little better later in the 3rd, but of course the game was out of reach by that point. Shots were 30-30 overall, though we got 14 of ours in the 3rd.

    Some of those penalties were foolish, but some of that was the result of playing a team that has talent everywhere on the ice. You take penalties when you're getting beat on the ice.

    On the bright side, I doubt we see a team with BU's collection of talent for the rest of the season. We may play a few squads that wind up being better, but I don't want to read too much into a beating from a team that could feasibly do that to more than a few opponents.

    BU was loaded talentwise and also sizewise. I wouldn't read too much into this game this early in the season, it was expected. I thought Finn and our young defensemen played pretty well, my worry is who's going to score goals ?

    I think his weekend's game is huge. No it's not a do or die game especially this early but it will set the tone. We (or at least I) expected a win against Army and didn't have high hopes for BU. To go through your first threee games at the rink without a win would hurt and with the lack of known goal scorers it could get tough to get the momentum.

    Plus with the impressive student section right behind the goal you need to keep them involved and excited, the students seem to be and understandably fair weather. Extended losing streaks would probably deplete the energy that section can provide

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    I agree with you Shabby, offense will be a struggle this year with so many freshmen up front. Seguin put out his preseason ECAC look on "the other site" and has us at last right now. I am still wondering about Dauda? I wonder if he did something during the week? He was tied for 7th with points returning from last year at 9, 2 goals and 7 assists. However, he came in late as we know and only played in 20 of the 37 games. Panowyk had 18 pts but only 4 goals, glad he was able to get one the other night. If we are to be a top 8 team in the league, which realistically should be the goal, we will need some freshman putting up some points.

    Red I also agree that a win over UCONN would be huge to keep the fan base and students interested but they are the better team right now so we will see. I'm thinking we will see Finn in net Friday and than Point will make his debut either against Merrimack or the next week at home vs Maine. I assume DV put Racine in the other night just to get him some ice time when the game was already over.

    Women at #6! Congrats...many tough games ahead but they are in amazing company. Have come a long way since club status and Title IX. Hope the students and fans come out to support them more.

    I've been trying to find a gallery of the new rink, but I am coming up empty handed. Would anyone have a lead to share?

    Thanks!

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    Hockey East UConn Friday night, they finished about ten games under 500 last year. They are picked middle of the pack in HE. They are a huge team, only one defenseman under 6-2, lot's of forwards over that. Four NHL draft picks, nine USHL players including the top goalie from the USHL last year. Team had two shutouts over UAH last weekend, it's not getting much easier, a win would be huge for us.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    I actually think the UConn game will be more of a barometer of what we might expect from our young team this year. Last weekend was BU, that was expected, who will step up tonight ?

    Anybody else on here anymore lol? Seems to be shabby and I having a personal conversation. I'll take the tie considering we gave up 45 shots! Our D needs to be stronger than that and our O needs to understand that a 3-2 lead is not a safe lead with 2 periods to play. Seriously only 3 SOG in the second period? Good first game for Point, UCONN looks legit with some real NHL talent on there. Glad to see Dauda back in the lineup (2 assists). Penalties again kill me! Are we trying to set a record? How does Black take a boarding penalty with 2:30 to go when the game is tied? Seriously lucky to walk away with a tie after that.

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    I'm not at all disappointed with last night's game. Offense picked up a little, Petersen SHG, Mcmann goal and a dinger off the post, Point looked a little nervous to me, he's big, and a great glove hand.
    We were a perfect 8-8 on the PK, refs calling every tic tac penalty, there's not much flow to the game, hope they stop.
    UConn had some draft picks that could really go, thought they were a pretty dam good team, very big.
    We need to be patient with this young rebuilding team, I think we're going to be very competitive with potential for some good wins. I don't see a last place finish as some writers have picked us.

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    Had the pleasure of watching a large chunk of the game w/ Shabby last night! Agree that the calls were over the top. There was a holding call off a faceoff early on that particularly stands out, got to let them play at least a little. The team seemed to sit back when they got a lead, really attacked when they went down 4-3... would expect the effort to even out as they mature. I remember a scout telling me during Finn's freshman year that he wasn't an NHL prospect as they like their goalies to have their shoulders covering the top of the net when they go to their knees... that's not a problem for Point!

    Fun team to watch. I'm sure they will have bad stretches, but between the young players & the new rink we're headed in the right direction.

    Holy cow was this true. They looked huge, at least on the video.

    Point did alright for start #1. I thought he spent a bit too much time down on his knees, which got him out of position on a few instances. Not a bad performance overall, even for giving up 4 goals. It'll be interesting to see how Vaughan plays next weekend with the goalies.

    On the one hand, penalties are going to happen, especially when dealing with ECAC refs like this. I agree with empty net, though, Black's late hit from behind was (almost) a killer. Simply can't do that kind of thing.

    When was the last time Qpac had a rebuilding year? How are some teams able to keep the recruits and momentum coming, not miss a step, and stay at the top year in and year out? They've done it even before we played them in LP in 2014, kudos to them.

    Re: Colgate 2016-17 A New Beginning

    Point is a huge goaltender and I like that he did not seem to fear any of the opposing players (most notably on a pop fly in the third period) he stood his ground with a charging forward and simply caught it with no fear. If I were to critique his game, it was tracking the puck off the rebound. There were a few times he did not track it and if there was a uconn player anywhere near it, the puck was was going to light the lamp. Not a bad first start for him, but definitely areas to improve upon.

    I am just hoping that Finn or Point take over the job as the #1, I think you get more consistent play that way

    Red... I'm hoping it's Point as he is our future goaltender.

    This weekend is a must for the win column. Merrimack currently is 0-3 with losses in the north country last weekend (acceptable, but they did lose 4-0 and 4-1) and a home loss to Sacred Heart! This should be one of the worst teams in what seems to be a "down" HE this year (so far anyway). A road sweep would be huge with two against what looks like a much improved Maine team the following weekend. Looking at these next four a 2-1-1 record would be solid I think. A 2-2 would not be the worst thing either. I'm thinking we see Finn in net one night and Point the other this weekend.

    Good morning. I'll be making the (short) trip to North Andover this evening to see the Raiders play the Warriors. Hopefully I'll see the team's first win of the season. Go 'Gate!
