    would have loved them to go... (but selfishly), am happy for our Huskies squad regardless and less disruptions hopefully lead to good things down the stretch. Go NU

    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.
    It's good to hear that Aidan had a productive day. He seems to be ranked as a step behind his linemate, O'Brien. Jimmy knows him well as they both live in Milton. I expect that he'll adjust to Juniors and D! faster than Armstrong, who was productive at AOF when he had Harper to assist him. Thayer has been kind of disappointing this year. DK if they are a one line team or have a porous D.
    I saw the USHL game earlier this week. I came away with the feeling that, after an adjustment period, Tyler Madden will play more of a Sikura style game rather than a Gaudette type. I'd have been thrilled with either. I'm glad he has signed his LOI!

    It was clear yesterday that O'Brien is a superior skater than McDonough. Also clear was the improvement in Aiden's game. A step faster, some good work controlling the puck in tight spaces, and worked hard on both sides of the game. Thayer's record is a bit down but off my viewing yesterday, they have 3 solid lines and 6 or 7 defenseman, too. Their goalie is well regarded but is young. It appears that he just needs time.

    New goalie added to the roster, elevated from the club team. Makes me think Ruck's injury status is more serious than we thought. Was last reported he'd get re-evaluated 3 weeks from now. http://gonu.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5179&path=mhockey

    Maine has always had a tough time playing at Matthews. 1 win will be difficult.....2 next to impossible.

    Maine will win a gm this wknd. NU will have to play above & beyond to prevent that. Having said that, Go Huskies

    NU needs to play strong every night. No let ups. Our schedule isn't exactly great the rest of the way.. To maintain our RPI where it is, we'd need to go something like 8-3-3 the rest of the way in the regular season, everything else remaining the same.

    Big series. It's at home, let's make it tough for Maine to play.

    Merrimack fan here. Please sweep Maine. No way MC will catch NU, but Maine remains in sight.

    Thanks! I fully understand numbers don't always tell the whole story but for an audience that doesn't watch opponents on a regular basis I find it gives a good sense of what to expect.

    College Hockey Ranked has a cool feature that lets you project out the likelihood of being at various pairwise positions based on your results. It looks like we need 3 points this weekend to stay in the top 13. We've been skating by lately (tie at MC, narrow win against AIC, 3 points against Bentley) so it's time to make some moves.

    I'll say it again... Swayman's not easy to score on. Unless you make him move... (which means moving the puck)... he doesn't give you a whole lot.
    Make him move & you've got your chance.

    Here's hoping NU plays it smart. This ain't no Bentley or AIC match up (with due respect to those teams).
    GO NU HOCKEY
    Always bullish on the future.
    We don't always win the Hockey East Championship.. but when we do.. we are the Champions

    I think a split would make both teams reasonably happy. It should be a fun series between two decent teams.

    Random thought, the Pats run started on a Saturday night when Maine and Northeastern were playing. Could it end the same way?

    The USCHO-Hockey East maven bloggers have spoken. Connolly has us splitting a pair of 3-1 games, While Hendrickson expect Maine to sweep. Both expect us to lose tonight. I suppose they are entitled to their misguided, poorly considered opinions.

    We skate at Matthews fairly often, but tonight is my first game seeing Northeastern play at home - because our boys are featured in the Squirt intermission scrimmage! Black Bears vs. Huskies, right? Should be fun, and maybe the Crimson will have a good night without us.

    ... and congrats to the women's team for beating a very strong, highly ranked BC squad today, 4-2.
    Whether they sweep the Eagles with another W tomorrow or not, this a good win for the program.

    Men' hockey... your turn. let's go Huskies!
