    This team hasn't learned squat since the holiday break. Undisciplined selfish play from the supposed "leaders" of this sorry team.
    Goin' off the USCHO grid....back, hmm, whenever......

    My first game ever at Magness, where there is a Jumbotron, which cannot be seen from hundreds if not thousands of seats because of all of the low hanging DU hockey and ski banners. Too funny!

    Bummer on Grasso. Will be interesting to see if WIS revises downward the NRN March to Quest, or to Whatever, after this weekend.

    Doubtful.
    Undefeated with Grasso out of the lineup.
    4-7-1 when he plays.

    Oops. I should have split my two sentences into separate paragraphs.

    The teacher in me wants to make each one of them (' cept DT) write 500 times "Iwill play like a team".

    IMHO....the Quest is done.

    16 games left to the regular season - I predict a 4-9-3 finish. The team will be bounced out of the playoffs in two games.

    Harsh? Maybe. I'm sticking with my pre-season prediction.

    If it makes you feel any better, Merrimack is playing DU tough after one period at Magness.

    Dartmouth beat DU 6-5 at 5280 ft, Mac beat UNH 4-3 at the Whitt, Mac still hanging around with DU 1-1 after two at 5280 ft, so stands to reason that Dartmouth beat UNH 3-1 in their own barn. Lot of parity these days in college hockey.

    Maybe so but it sure doesn't seem to rub off on us. We talk about winning the games we should and pardon me aren't the last 3 those games? Dartmouth has 3 wins coming in tonight. This isn't rocket science amd it's no excuse we do not play well there (even tho our track record speaks to that)

    I do get where you are coming from. Sorry there's a disconnect out there. I know we aren't gonna win em all but... (Hey Chuck we outshot them fwiw dept). I see Mack is winning 3-1. Go figure. And speaking of figuring those lines...

    Lots of frustration out there tonight and yes we had some chances. 5 penalties do not help. Ok I am done talking about it.

    The Quest grinding to a halt at 599 would be painful, sure, but also ironically apropos to some ... let's just say the WIS board is watching the next two games VERY closely. But three losses on the trot to Army, Merrimack and Dartmouth certainly has gotten our full attention. Not the way we were looking for the 'Cats to bounce back, and now we have a Yale squad tomorrow afternoon that's probably licking its chops and looking for revenge from an earlier home loss to UNH. This is all starting to feel very queasy here, yet we can only begin to imagine how long a night this one is going to be at Chez Umile ...

    No, you're absolutely right. I think if anyone came on the boards after the Providence and RPI wins and predicted UNH was going to drop their next three games (at least), we would have laughed them out of the arena. Yet here we are, and I don't see anyone laughing now. Well, except maybe for that lone townie Yale fan from last time around, but if anyone had a worse night in Hanover tonight than UNH, it had to be Yale. And to think, that poor guy still has to go home to New Haven afterwards. So all is not lost (yet), my friends.

    Re: UNH Wildcats 2017-2018 Season - The Quest Continues

    Open letter to the Wildcats:

    Dear 'Cats

    Losing to Dartmouth was not in the plan to start the second half and the frustration that was on your faces as you skated off the ice last night was duly noted by your loyal fans. Who, by the way, hate seeing that look....it pains us and it's not about the loss.

    You know what you are capable of when you play together; winning comes when many factors are in place and those factors are not going to be about one or two players. There is no "I" in the word TEAM. And the only place where "success" comes before "work" is in the dictionary. Total cliches I know...but great teams operate from those cliches...

    We know you have it in you to do well and you are going to have to find it in yourselves to bring your best to the ice from here on in. Today is a new day and you have the chance to build positive momentum right here, right now.

    You put in way too much work and go through so much to be playing below your potential. Forget about yesterday and play a disciplined game that supports one another. You cannot do it alone. Forget about that 4 zip win the last time you played Yale; that game is in the past and today's game is NOW. Go get 'em 'Cats!

    Sincerely HockeyRef

    In the tradition of Chuck's "open letter to Coach Umile" several years ago, maybe before your time here; nicely done, HR.

    I can no longer access any stats on the revised USCHO.com website, so I cannot see where we stand in penalty minutes, but clearly our SMT days are in the rear view mirror. From the CHN.com website, I see that we have dropped to 29th in PWR, tied with our old nemeses BU and Niagara ("slowly I turn, step by step, Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls!).

    Enjoy the fine cuisine and libations in Hanover; it may all you get there this weekend. This team needs a long visit with the shrinks.

    Hope this works for us!!!!
    Did anyone else notice that Lil Kel did not play at the end of the game? Not sure just when I noticed.
    Could we be seeing our man Justin Fregona inserted somewhere today?

    Fregona sitting on the pine is a travesty, IMHO.
