    Woll made some big saves Saturday but don't think he was great overall. Defensively, they are going to make mistakes. Just have to hope they limit them, play smart and don't do something catastrophic. Don't think they have even had a lead on BU all season so that is probably the key. Even if they just go down a goal, I'm not sure they can pull out a comeback. Need to score first.

    On the PK, haven't been at a game in a while but wow...is that how they always play it this year? Looked chaotic to me. Lack of communication, falling back too much. Gave up a ton of time and space to the Vermont pointmen but perhaps it was by design. If it was, not a fan of that style.

    Was kinda surprised Sneddon never used a timeout in the first period or changed goalies. Vermont did end up scoring a couple in the first but still. Certainly not the UVM I expected based off the last two playoff series' against BC.
    I agree with Nick whenever they play a good team like BU, there's no offense. They need to score a TD to win and need to stay out of the box, period to win.

    More pucks on net and keep BU out of our zone as much as possible by making sure they clear the blue line and minimize turnovers in our defensive zone. At times they can look slow and confused on the PP in game #2 against UVM. Play with urgency and make quick short passes on the break out.

    Maybe we can meet up at the regionals.

    Maybe doesn't matter for you but the majority of your fanbase would like the fact that Lowell to Manchester you stay on the same comfortable Greyhound or Trailways bus and get dropped off a block from the arena in Manchester. No bus change whatsoever, unlike going to Providence.

    Crazy. Lose a game you're out. Win two you could be 9th. Kinda like NU last year where they needed to win hockey east but when they did it vaulted them ahead of the cutline anyway.
