    I too enjoy your blog and will be interested in future spots. I too agree with your frustrations with the issues with the game feeds this weekend. Clarkson RMU game one feed started late and game 2 the feed did not start until the beginning of the third period. I emailed the Director of Cheel Area during the 2nd game and he emailed me back that it was an ESPN issue (they had an encoder problem what ever that means). I will bet if it was a football game that was going on ESPN+ that the problem would have been fixed a lot quicker.

    Thanks PGB and vicb. I truly appreciate it.

    Here’s hoping the feeds and encoder issues get sorted out once and for all. I agree about FB getting fixed ASAP if the scenario ever arose, lol.

    Lakers get their first win of the season tonight, 4-2 at Syracuse. Senior goalie Sarah McDonnell got the start, making 23 saves on the night. Maddi Welch started in net for 'Cuse, both right handed catching goalies. McDonnell was solid, and excellent at times. She came up big on a 5 on 3 penalty kill in the second, as well as made a breakaway stop shortly after.

    Lakers took the lead in the 2nd on a Tanskanen goal that was scored from the goal line, close to the net. The 'Cuse answered a minute later with a pp bomb from the point, top shelf. Lakers took the lead again with ten seconds left in the second, on a nifty little play where Dobson stripped the 'Cuse D of the puck in the slot, dropped it to Nuutinen, who stickhandled once and dished to Knott for Knott's first goal of the season.

    I didn't watch the third, but I see the Lakers took a 3-1 lead on another Knott goal, with assists from freshman Liliane Perreault and sophomore Megan Korzack. The insurance goal was needed as 'Cuse answered, making it 3-2. A fourth Laker goal came from defender Rachel Marmen.

    The two periods I saw were somewhat even, with each team generating pressure at times. Rowswell of Syracuse generated a lot of chances for the Orange. Free stream was good quality and a nice job done by the pxp guys.

    Lakers earned a win over visiting RMU tonight, 4-2. Special teams were the difference, with the Lakers going 2 of 5 on the pp, and RMU going 0 for 6. Lakers also scored a short handed goal. RMU was up 2-0 in the first before giving up four goals.

    Play of the game for me was watching the Lakers kill a Tanskanen penalty in the 2nd. Lots of chances, chaos and blocked shots that culminated in I believe defender Thiessen absorbing a shot and trying to collapse on the puck and get a whistle. RMU took the lumber to her (as is expected in that situation), the puck came out, but the Lakers still managed to clear the puck out of the zone, and kill the penalty.

    Shortly after the kill, the Lakers had the puck in the RMU zone, Dobson fed Vasko the puck as she came down the slot, tie game, and the Lakers took momentum from there. Other Laker goals were scored by Pinto, Fieseler, and Hine. McDonnell got the start in net for Hurst.

    The teams meet again tomorrow afternoon.

    Here’s a link to a tweet with 1 minute video of the Hurst goals. Some pretty ones:

    Re: Mercyhurst Lakers 2018-2019

    Lakers fell 5-1 to RMU yesterday. Shots were 23-21 in favor of RMU. Three RMU goals were the result of breakaways, two of which came from unforced errors; the other two RMU goals were PP goals. Lone Laker goal was scored by Vasko, on the PP.

    It’s early in the season so can’t really say if this was characteristic of this Laker team; I chalk it up to a game where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Will be interesting to see how Hurst responds next week.

    Highlights are on the RMU site: https://rmucolonials.com/news/2018/1...cha-split.aspx

    Both the Lakers and Colonials are now 3-5 on the season. Next up, the Lakers host Penn State.

    Re: Mercyhurst Lakers 2018-2019

    The Lakers host Penn State this weekend, starting at 3pm today. Last time out these two teams tied each other twice. This is the first CHA series of the year for Penn State, compared to Hurst who has 4 league games under their belt.

    Lakers will need to contain Heising who leads Penn State with 10 points in 8 games. Lakers point leader through 8 games is Summer Rae Dobson with six points.

    Here is Mercyhurst’s preview of the series:

    Let’s go Lakers!

    Above tweet link includes video of the two Laker goals in tonight’s 2-1 win over Penn State.

    First goal is by Emma Nuutinen. Sam Isbell forechecks the Penn State player below the goal line. Penn State player throws the puck up the wall to a waiting Nuutinen. Nuutinen scores. Second goal has Emily Pinto attempting a wrap around and the puck pops out to to sophomore defender KK Thiessen who catches the puck on her stick, winds up, and scores the eventual game winner.

    Unfortunately no video of Penn State’s goal to share.

    Senior Sarah McDonnell got her fifth start in net and is now 4-1. The Lakers took 33 shots, the most Penn State has given up all year.

    1-1 after one against Penn State. Each team has a power play goal, both rebounds. Mercyhurst controlled the play for close to 17 minutes in the first, although Penn State had three nice rushes, #16 and #21 As I recall. Only after the first goal did Penn State get sustained time in thenMercyhurst zone, and then made them pay on the Pp.

    Hurst penalty was unfortunate. Nuutinen was going one on two, possessing the puck and almost had a scoring opportunity. She braced her body for contact with a Penn State defender, the defender went down and Nuutinen got a high sticking penalty. Ugh. Not sure what happened there, whether it was a good call or not.

    Hurst goal was Knott banging in a rebound, from Tanskanen and Nuutinen. Nice period out of Tanskanen, buzzing all around.

    On the Penn State PP, nice job by the defenders keeping the puck in the zone, as Hurst made clearing attempts. It was one of those shifts where you knew it had the potential to end badly (depending on your perspective of course) and it did, with Penn State scoring in the final minute of the frame.

    Re: Mercyhurst Lakers 2018-2019

    What an amazing game. The Lakers won 5-4 in overtime on an Emma Nuutinen goal off the rush, with four seconds left. She rushed up the right hand side of the ice, was perhaps a 3 on 2, she cut to the middle, bodies everywhere, and goes top shelf as the goalie moved across the crease. Looked like the mirror image of a typical Artemi Panarin goal.

    Emma had one of her best games as a Laker - also scored a short handed goal in the second, and a breakaway goal in the third to tie it up. Amazing team win. The Lakers were down 4-1 at one point before starting their comeback. Great OT goal call by the pxp guy. Can’t wait for highlights.

    Lakers are now 5-5 on the season.

    Congrats on the sweep in what sounds like a great weekend series to have watched! Can we borrow Nuutinen for just the rest of her playing career?

    Lol thanks Zed! Yes Nuutinen is some kind of X factor when she’s on. Hurst are lucky to have her amongst their cast of talented players.

    Re: Mercyhurst Lakers 2018-2019

    Finally getting a chance to post. The series this weekend was very exciting to watch, especially the Saturday game. In the world of sports, it's never over til the final buzzer goes and MH never gave up. Great to see some line combos clicking and the girls always giving their all. Robert Morris and Penn State gave Mercy a good battle, it was good hockey to watch this weekend if you're a Mercy fan

    The games against Minnesota and Wisconsin were a tough start to the season, the games against Syracuse were a good result. But the season is young, the Lakers just need to take the season one weekend (or game) at a time.

    Junior Emma Nuutinen was named to Team Finland’s roster for the Four Nations, today. Congrats and good luck to Emma.

    The Lakers will take on Cornell the weekend of the Four Nations; they play the Lindenwood Lions on Saturday and Sunday of this weekend.

    The Lakers take on Lindenwood at Lindenwood at 730 EST. The Lakers are 3-2 vs Lindenwood in their last five. On paper Hurst is the better team, but Lindenwood always comes to play, makes me kind of nervous, tbh.

    Other teams around the country are having missteps this weekend, so two wins would be worth even more than usual. Gotta earn the first one of course.

    Let’s go Lakers!

    Re: Mercyhurst Lakers 2018-2019

    It is perplexing to me, but the Lakers struggle with Lindenwood. Syracuse, a team that Mercyhurst swept, swept Lindenwood. Not only that, Syracuse scored 11 goals on Lindenwood over the course of the weekend! Yesterday, the Lakers lost to Lindenwood 4-1, outshooting them 31-26. The good news is the Lakers take them on once again today, starting at 1:30 today.

    Here is a brief recap of yesterday and where the Lakers are year to date: http://lakerfanhockey.blogspot.com/2...-falls-to.html

    As expected, the Lakers rebounded with a dominant performance today, winning 5-0 at Lindenwood. The Lakers improve to 6-6 on the season. McDonnell got her second shutout of the season. Congrats to freshmen Perreault and Rheaume who each got their first collegiate goal today.

    Next up, the Lakers prepare to host Cornell next weekend.

    Nice write up on Liliane Perreault and Alexane Rheaume’s NHL connections. Better yet, video footage of each of their first goals. Perreault went with the non celebration style of goal celebration; Rheaume a little more expressive.

    Man, that was just bad from Lindenwood, stranding one lone player to deal with Perreault that deep, but Perreault must have been licking her chops when that defender blew an edge...good for her for finishing it! There should be a school for incoming freshmen: Goal Celebrations 101
