    Re: What??? No UNH 2017-2018 Season Thread? Well, Here Ya Go!! :) :)

    After watching the Providi games this weekend, there were 2 vast improvements (for now at least)....the Wildcats held to a disciplined game plan and did a good job of shutting down the Friars....of course, Boutilier was huge, many times 1 on 1 in close! But the bigger improvements were with possession....if they can learn to control the puck,( show some confidence holding the puck) despite the zone or pressure........
    We’ve got 2 at Maine, 2 w/BU and 1 w/ BC left in HE....with the weekend coming up at Quinni for 2......hopefully the Wildcats use this weekends games to focus their game, get ready for the playoff stretch....they have a real good shot at home ice right now, as they are tied w/ Norgheastern for fourth now......Maine is 2 points ahead, BU 8 behind.....the playoffs are NOW! They have the team to get home ice and then who knows, we’ll worry about that in a month, but if they can focus on a strong defensive game and maintain possession, they’ll be okay......they can score and they have Boutilier......let’s do this Cats!

    Sorry but I need to vent on this...... why did UNH decide to bus the team up to Maine, (app. 4 hrs) the day of the game, when they’re not only fighting for home ice, with only 5 conference games to go, with these 2 vs Maine 2 of those, with Maine 2 points ahead of them? Where is the freakin logic? We all know it would take at least 2 periods to get their legs back.....why chance losing 1/5 important games to go? An extra night in Orono isn’t exactly the same price as Boston! Absolutely irresponsible and biased......if the men’s team were fighting for home ice, would the same scenario hold? Disgraceful......btw, the game’s outcome...... a great come from behind tie for the Wildcats!🤯🤬🙉🙊🙈

    Wish the game wasn’t during working hours so I could see what went on.....was UNH aggressive, defensive, what? Did BC have an off game and that’s it? Boutilier unreal? Yes just to take a game in Conte after 3/4 years should be enough I suppose....so now home ice depends on 2games vs BU, with Northeastern 1point behind......both teams have a home game, both play on the last Sunday of the season.......in past seasons, Coach Durocher had a strong enough team to physically outlast the Wildcats......not this year. I’m hoping UNH will make possession a priority.....I know they’ll give everything they have otherwise......whatever Coach Witt’s game plan, I just hope UNH the best.....the past 3 years we have been on the road for the first round and it was the difference......best of luck Wildcats.....go and get these game wins!💪💪🏒

    This was certainly part of it, BC was super disjointed with their passing, but a lot if it was UNH clogging up the ice.
    Boutilier unreal?
    I would say yes, especially late.

    Going into the final weekend of Hockey East regular season play, UNH is tied with Maine for 10th in Pairwise. We were 1 - 1 - 1 against them this season. Providence and Northestern are tied for 12th. We went 1 - 1 - 1 against the Friars, and 1 - 2 with the Huskies. While BU is still feeling the effects of a slow start, this weekend's home and away with the Terriers is going to be huge, and tough; the first game of the series was a tie. A lot riding on this - home ice, and depending on how the other teams jammed into 2 - 5 do, possibly a 3rd place finish.

    Regardless of how the standings shake out, I think we could be in for some exciting post-season play!
