    Regret medical issues have restricted my travels, but I hope to be returning to action before too long.

    Anyone care to share thoughts on the final 2 regular season matchups?

    Middlebury controls their destiny #1 seed-wise.

    Conn has Bowdoin at Dayton and a trip to Hamilton to end the year.

    Hamilton and Amherst fighting for #3-4 this weekend, although 4 wins for either would put a new wrinkle in the standings.

    Well, I missed commenting on the penultimate NESCAC weekend, but here are a few thoughts. I've been known to jinx things with these comments.

    Midd vs Williams. This is a home/away series this weekend. Williams is playing well enough, and this is NESCAC, that the Ephs might be able to steal a tie or a win. OTOH, Midd is playing stronger and hungry in a way I've not seen in several years. Midd takes both games.

    Conn College vs Hamliton. Both Conn and Hamliton always weird at the end of the season. I call a split here.

    Amherst vs. Wesleyan. Wesleyan has an great goaltender and enough talent to be surprising. But Amherst, like Midd, seems to playing a championship level. Two games to Amherst. Note, if both predictions come true, the brings Amherst into a tie with Conn College for #2, with Conn owing the tie-breaker.

    Bowdoin vs Trinity. Bowdoin is hosting this game coming off a 4-2 loss to Endicott on Tuesday. Trinity has been playing better recently. Bowdoin's offense is impressive, and if they can avoid repeatedly turning the puck over in their own end, they can take both games and move into 5th place.

    Bonus game: Colby vs Endicott Gulls. The Gulls are a ranked team and looked pretty impressive against Bowdoin. If Colby can bring their A game they make it close, but I think the Gulls win this in a close game.

    Colby is off this weekend, and if both Trinity and Wesleyan manage to win at least one game, it will bump Colby to 9th and out of the NESCAC tournament.

    Well, that was an interesting weekend. Williams, playing at home manages to steal a tie with Midd. Hamliton with their usual flair, manages to steal and win and a tie and putting them in to a tie for third place with Amherst. The Mammoths own the tie breaker, so Hamiton get a fourth seed in the NESCAC tournament, and still a home game.

    The NESCAC quarters are, I think:

    Wesleyan at Middlebury
    Colby at Conn College
    Williams at Amherst
    Bowdoin at Hamilton

    And of course Trinity on the outside looking in. Before the season started, did anybody anticipate them having this bad of a season?

    Looks like the NESCAC is no different than any other conference when comparing the top teams to the bottom few in that there is a noticeable difference in the standings. They have a clear top six and a clear bottom three teams. (let the attacks of disagreement begin.... the parity police are out there just lurking)
