    also... want to add, some excellent puck movement & hustle by the team tonight. they are going to need that & more nxt wknd when they play the very strong (resurgent) Maine squad... backstopped by excellent goaltending. The way you score on Swayman.. gotta make him move.

    hoping we'll get 2 hard fought gms. Hopefully get rested, some good skates in nxt wk; then much like tonight... NU needs to set the tone Friday.

    Blackbears are prob one of the best teams Huskies will face this season. You will be at the Garden & I said that in your thread when team wasnt doing that well early season and folks calling for Red's head.

    Gonna be tough going for NU, as Terriers too found out last night. Just hoping they are up for the challenge, as hallmark of any good team... beat other good teams.

    Go Huskies!

    Awesome offensive breakout last night. Obviously big night by the Big Three, the powerplay came back last night in a big way. Nice to see Hawkins get on the board, that slap shot was a thing of legend, we've been hearing about it and it's nice to finally see it. If that's what he is capable of, maybe he can be a major contributor in the middle 6. Also props to Lerario having points in consecutive games, easily the first time that has happened since he got here. Picking, Joz, Filipe, and Hampton all had multiple shots on goal too, so that's nice to see after we were talking about those lines not shooting enough.

    Good win, held firm in the PWR. This next series with Maine has low-key become crucial. Maine has risen to 18th in the PWR, so this game matters for points as well as PWR in a big way.

    ... not to mention, Maine unbeaten in their last 8 games & virtually unbeaten on the road. they have like one road loss all season... should be a good test.

    It's a safe bet that we'll be represented there. IIRC Jason Smith lives in Assonet, which is not far from Providence.

    Maine is physically big and can score. Their special teams may be their Achilles heels. They lead the league in PIM per game, which is almost 3 minor penalties more than NU - which seems to be hot on the heels of UML in the race for the league's Lady Byng award. Maine is dead last in killing those penalties at ~ 73%. It would appear that Maine are much easier to score on when shorthanded. Their PP is mediocre (average) as is our PK.
    This is the second "hot" team we've played in January. Unless Maine is going to pull an NU 2016-like revival, we should be able to handle them. We need to play and beat better teams if we are to be prepared for the playoffs in March.

    A large chunk of those PIM came from the series against Miami where there was quite a bit of "extracurricular activities". PK has been much better in the past 12 games but still an area needing improvement.

    It appears we have a new AD. Official announcement tomorrow, but multiple outlets reporting that Oakland AD Jeff Konya is taking the NU job

    Things I've seen on him: "Folks in Detroit refer to him as a "marketing genius"". "One of the 2016-2017 NACDA ADs of the year. Solid marketing success at a school of similar size academically and athletically." "Konya has helped immensely with OU's branding and brought in huge amounts of fundraising and booster money to the program"

    Tyler Madden won the first star and MVP for Team East in the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Kearney, NB. He scored the first goal and the game winner as the East came from behind to win 4-3. Madden played center and RW, won critical faceoffs and lived in the slot where his goals were scored.

    If it is Konya, what is being said about him is encouraging but the real question for people on this forum is where does he stand in terms of supporting and encouraging hockey? At least he comes from a strong hockey area (Detroit) and IIRC there was a thread on here back in the summer about Oakland University looking into the feasibility of starting D1 men's and women's programs.

    ...he is a Princeton grad.. (and Mich raised)... should be good for hockey & for NU Athletics overall. Sounds like a good hire.

    Caught just my second Prep game of the season today. Belmont Hill @ Thayer. 4-4 Tie. NU commit Aiden McDonough had 2G, 1A. McDonough looked good all game long. One goal was a roofed backhander from in tight
    after a deke on the goalie. The second was a pinpoint wrister from about 30 feet out, just inside the far post, as the goalie was moving across to confront him. Also looking very good for Thayer was Jay O'Brien (2G 2A, PC commit). Two freshmen to watch: F Sasha Teleguine and D Nolan Hayes. Belmont Hill has no D1 commits currently, but they hung with Thayer all game. Goalie Connor Hopkins (Jr) was more than capable. Sophomore D Michael Brown has good size already (6'2, 205) and can play, too.

    No Sikura, Davies or any college players named to Team Canada. Hopefully they (and Gaud) play with a little extra chip on their shoulders the rest of the way.

    Maine's PK stats are a little misleading. They had a few bad games early on and it has skewed the stats. I would rate them as average, somewhere between 80 and 85 percent.

    Us and BC escape Olympic season unscathed. BU loses Greenway. Harvard loses Donato. Winner of the BC/NU game has to be the favorite, no?
