    Neuman's fourth season was also really bad, but how many ECACW conference titles did each of those two win?
    Fact: I never claimed that Utica set the world on fire; I said they were a "factor"... And they were.

    Just a guess but I'm wondering if Chatham, Kings and Stevenson were left out of the database of NCAA D3 hockey teams?

    I have no idea, but Chatham and King's can't help you, ratings-wise, especially if you lose to them... Stevenson, on the other hand, is looking like a decent team already.

    Stevenson has been a factor since day one 😉

    I agree.... So what's the rationale in ignoring their results...?

    (If one even exists in D-3 World.)

    UC lost a tough one tonight. Young with a bad turnover middle of 3rd that turned into the GWG was the difference. He was in for Carter who was suspended for the TBG 'fight', so it's really his fault.
    Virtanen solid as usual with 37 saves. No shame in this loss.

    No shame in losing a tight road game at Adrian, but quality-win opportunities for UC are few and far between, and the only such opportunity that still exists is v. Oswego ...

    (And Utica needs a quality win, because the UCHC isn't very good.)

    Without knowing too much about the 18 and under team, I would think the 5-4 win was a pretty good win. These are the kids that will be playing D1 in a couple of years, they must be good. The U20 team has come in and beat Colgate pretty handily before. Just my occasional chime in here.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    Shabby, if I'd predicted a UC win from this past weekend, it would have been at Adrian. The U-18 team is usually loaded with talent waaay superior to any D-3 team, and even a bunch of D-1 teams.

    A win at Adrian would have been far more meaningful, though.

    I agree with you, but to me, the fact that they beat that team makes them much more credible to me ! I actually was expecting a letdown after losing friday night in such a close manner.

    UC stayed at #10 and Adrean jumped from #8 to #4 , or #5. How bout them pollsters, lol ?

    We're thinking about going to Morrisville for the game tomorrow, weather permitting.

    I looked at the Iceplex website; perhaps it's not the best place to watch a game? Any advice would be appreciated.

    You've got to be kidding me right, sure it's no "AUD" but there's nothing wrong with watching a game there, you subject your self to worse going to Geneva.

    Nice place. Good sightlines. The cow barn next to the rink brings a unique atmosphere to the area.

    Thanks; the sightlines were my concern. It's hard to figure that out from their online pics.

    We puppied-out on the hour-long drive to Morrisville over (largely) back roads, due to the fairly dire post-game forecast. Had to watch the stats instead.

    In any case, while this wasn't a great win, it would have been a bad loss. Props to our boys for taking care of business.

    Does anyone know if the UC Potsdam game is still on tonight?

    According to a tweet by Coach Heenan the Bears are in the bus.

    Glad they got an early start. Not a fun drive under ideal conditions, and the roads here are pretty slick...

    Nice gut-check. UC looked constipated for half of the game, fell behind 3-1, then woke-up against a Potsdam team that is better than their record would indicate.

    12-3, baby!
