    I think to beat teams like Northeasten they need the rub of the green or at least not have things go against them. The first and third goals were killers. On the second goal I think Maine had a decent shout for interference for the guy who picked off Perez. Oh well. The next seven games are obviously huge and Maine should do well in them.

    5-3, 5-3. Swept out of Boston. That pretty much kills any thought of a Hockey East title, and home ice is going to be a tough get. Those are games that teams that get home ice, league titles and NCAA bids win. Maine didn't.

    Horrific officiating job, but even without it I don't think Maine had a shot at winning. They played pretty poorly and couldn't control pucks.

    Who thought Maine was going to get any of those things?? Home ice maybe, the rest, pipe dream

    Being at the game tonight and it being the 250th HE game I have attended I will say that fair and even some good teams buckle under the stress of bad calls and great teams overcome them, but when a team losses it's composure, that is the sign of a poorly coached team, which is what I have suspected has perhaps been part of the problem under Red.

    Couldn’t agree more.

    I think Maine still has a decent shot at fourth. They have a very favorable schedule the rest of the way.

    Assuming they can beat UMA, UHN and MC.

    It's not a given that's for sure. I doubt they sweep unh, might not even beat them. I see Tirone killing Maine like he always does.

    Glad that you said it first.

    Maine is certainly looking up, but not ready for prime time... Not really even very close.

    The young guys on here get overly excited at times.

    Yes, we have a very good goalie in Swayman, but occasionally lousy D, and that can cost you games, as it did this weekend. The 4x4 early tonight was amazingly bad in that regard.

    Since he got five-and-a-game for hitting from behind, chances Tralmaks is suspended against UMass?

    If i heard them correctly over the loudspeaker, both Eddie and Brady got a game misconduct on their respective penalties, but you might be right. I hope you're right, I might add.

    Too many penalties in a crucial weekend? Shocked I tell ya

    Give a ranked team 12 power plays how are you gonna win? That's a whole period out of the 6 a man down

    Watched some of the UNH game today and what I saw wasn't very impressive. I do worry about them where have struggled so much against them in recent times. Also, they have a seven game winless streak which makes me nervous. I'd guess we wind up getting a split.

    Are your home video feeds free or behind a pay wall? The links appear to be free to open but do they lock up at game time?

    When you're a middle of the pack team like Maine you have to bring it every night. College hockey just has too much parity now too. Glad to see progress finally coming to the program but we still have a ways to go. Will be very exciting to watch the freshman/sophomore classes develop over the rest of their respective careers in Orono!

    I think I worry more about Tirone than any other player in Hockey East simply based on his track record against UMaine. Was it two years ago we out shot them something like 53 to 27 and they beat us?!
