    He was the better goalie last night. The game winner last night was one of the worst goals I have ever seen conceded. It was a pass from about 40' away that somehow beat Bub.

    I do however give credit where credit is due. The band sounds terrific. Always good though. Now let's get a gd hockey program that would make the band proud, huh ?

    Hopefully tonight too, but as usual leaving rebounds out front.

    Don't blame Matty for the penalty fest done by his teammates. How you trip someone in the neutral zone on a PP is beyond me.

    Ughhh. That was just moronic.

    Honestly, what part of "stay the eff out of the box, you're not good enough to afford it" don't these guys get?

    Taking the under (11 wins). This team is as bad a Maine team as I've seen in many years. No end to the misery is in sight, either.

    I thought Morris played pretty well tonight. There was only one goal that I thought he should have had. The second home game I have been to this year and the penalties continue to hurt Maine. The tripping penalty on #25 was a senseless penalty which led to a ND goal. Another goal by ND with 4 on 4. ND scores 4 unanswered goals. This is certainly one of the worst teams in Maine history. They may develop, but right now the only two legitimate D! players are Byron and Brown and they were recruited by Tim. Congratulations to Cam Brown by the way for being the 54th player to reach 100 pts. tonight. Maine was outshot 2-1 at the end of every period. They mishandle the puck and have difficulty receiving the puck cleanly on passes. There was a good crowd on hand until about 5 minutes left in the game when the building started to empty. I suspect many fans (me included), wanted to see ND play in HE for the last time.
    Notre Dame was very disciplined and played their defensive positions very well.

    Yes, I thought the same thing. Nice to see the team and staff have their heads in the game.

    On a more positive note, Kimball Union is now 27-3-2 with 3 games left in the regular season. The team has 9 - 10 elite hockey prospects.

    Good for Tim, he has found his niche. He was done at UMaine though. I wonder if he will try to find another college coaching job?

    Do you think he would come back if we asked him? I think that perhaps once his kids are out of school he will consider other possibilities. If the right college position were to open up he would be a strong candidate.

    Maine needs to bring in a youngish, energetic head coach with no ties to the program. Zero. Just bleach the whole thing and burn it to the ground.
    Your Statement hits the nail on the head...some may hate the sound of it and others just might start to see the light and it's not shining with RG behind the bench anytime soon or later. You put it the way it should be: Point Blank and Blunt to say what it is... A MESS that will never get better. Good Post imo.

    I've been more positive than most on here but its tough after last night. It's really frustrating they have not won from so many winning positions this year. There are going to be times it happens but it shouldn't be more than once or twice a season. To be 2-0 up with them on the ropes and completely give it away is crazy. I can understand taking a penalty to prevent them from getting a good scoring chance but never in a million years should two guys on the fourth line take penalties on the same play when the puck is up the other end of the ice.

    I honestly do think Red & co have done a much better job recruiting than the prior regime. The best recruits haven't shown up yet and people are selling this year's freshmen way short. With all that being said, the in game coaching just hasn't been good enough. This isn't a great Maine team but with the talent they have and the schedule they have faced no way they should be under .500. The only games where they didn't have much chance in were BU and Providence and there was basically seven free wins.

    I'm not sure on the way forward. I think the best thing to do would be to give Ben a year and see what happens. If they decide to go in a completely different direction be prepared to be underwhelmed.
