    The one saving grace for the Friars is that the game isn't on a Saturday. The offense completely evaporates on Saturdays - shutout losses to Clarkson, RIT (!), UNH, BU - 2 goals against Bobby Mo last weekend and yet another loss to Clarkson... The 7-2 victory over UMASS and the 6-6 tie at Merrimack being outliers.

    Those are quite the impressive outliers! I also notice the Friars have scored precisely zero goals on Wednesday nights this season, which is just putrid. Embarrassing, really. Brown, on the other hand, has scored one (1) goal on Wednesdays, thus establishing itself as the obvious favorite in this game.

    We’ve managed to regress into last year’s team over the past month of not playing. Fire Whittet.

    Would prefer we don’t go down 4-0 in the first place, but this is clearly a much more resilient team than last year’s!

    Heck of a comeback by Brown tonight, quite a different team in the third period. Congrats!

    That was a really, really entertaining game last night. Neither team played defense, and as a result, we were treated to high-octane offense from both teams throughout the whole game. Tony Stillwell could be an absolute star at this level. He's got better hands and speed than any forward on our roster, and we've got a handful of good puck-handlers and skaters.

    The goaltending situation is back to being an overall negative. Sure, the defense was directly responsible for probably three of the four goals we allowed last night, but neither Kania nor Nieto has really grabbed the reins in recent games and made the job his own. It's a little concerning to me that at this point in the season, we're still playing a rotation in net – and not because we have two goalies battling it out for the starting job, but because neither is apparently ready to be an automatic starter at this level. I wonder if Connor Maher could deliver a steady senior season, a la Borelli in 2013?

    I saw a much better Brown team from 1 year ago. Good compete level with some skill out there. Good luck the rest of the way and hopefully the W's start coming your way!

    Likewise, I was impressed with Maine’s skating and skill, particularly in generating clean shot looks, compared to last year. With both Hockey East and the ECAC having relative down years, maybe our teams can make some noise down the stretch. Go Bears, both of the brown and black varieties!
