Conference back in action in two weeks after some thanksgiving tourneys coming up.
I think this weekend (I know it's still early!) showed that the Conference may be a 3-team and not a 5-team race (Salve, Nichols and UNE). Endicott really had a stinker of a weekend. Again, this is only through the stream, but they looked uninspired, at best, through both games. Salve played lights out both nights, quickness that Endicott couldn't answer and a toughness that may have cost them in PIMs. They do need to get that in check, teams with good special teams could exploit that.

I only caught part of the Nichols/Becker game before I headed over to the Alfond for UNE/Curry (man, I gotta get a life!) and Becker seemed to show a little spunk.

I agree with the UNE Special Teams, they have been executing well on PP and SH, as Curry found out this weekend. Curry had a lot of O-zone time but got very little accomplished. They appeared to be disorganized, many times getting frustrated with not getting quality shots. UNE Defense blocked a ton of shots all night.

This weekend began to tell us more about this conference.
