This weekend went exactly like I expected. Merrimack could not handle BU's top line Friday night, but I thought the team played hard. On Saturday I thought Merrimack was discipline and did not get chippy with Maine. I could not believe that Maine was that bad. I never thought I would say this but Merrimack should win 3 of 4 points at Alfond.

Have we seen the end of the goaltending rotation? There were some in my opinion soft goals let up by Ras last night.Gotta agree with you on this one. Time to go with your best option for the HE games and Marotta seems to be the #1 guy.

Maine is so bad at home Merrimack should get SIX points out of two games up there..

Interesting. Dan Sullivan hasn't played since November 4th in a loss against NH. Earlier in the week Conor Riley was going to play defense in this game. He could be injured.

As a heads up I believe that's last week's roster link.

3 of 4 points against Maine is great. The big thing right now is that Merrimack has won the series against the bottom three teams in Hockey East. UNH next weekend will be tough and Merrimack will have to play better. However, taking 3 points in Orono is a great accomplishment no matter what Maine's record is this year.

Huge weekend on tap, need to walk away with 2 points to stay in contention for home ice. Think we're going to go as far as Marotta (or Rasmus) and the D take us through this next month.

Any suggestions for places to grab an adult beverage in Manchester? Is Jillians the same owners as Jillians in Boston?

I'm not sure if you saw this. From the Mack Report site.


WGAM will host a Merrimack hockey pregame party on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. at Jillian’s in Manchester, NH before Merrimack takes on No. 4 New Hampshire Wildcats at 5 p.m. at the Verizon Wireless Center.

Any idea why Friday's game is at 7:30? Is it televised?

Any idea why Friday's game is at 7:30? Is it televised?Looking forward to next year, when all Friday HE games are supposed to be starting at 7:30.

But in answer to your question, it doesn't appear to be on TV. Could be wrong though.

So, at the halfway point (+ 1 game), the Warriors are about where I though they'd be. 5th place (but only 2 points behind BU and PC with a game in hand). Defense has been very strong (as expected) and Marotta has filled some big goalie skates better than anyone could have foreseen. Collins has been terrific. They've essentially won the games they should win (season series' wrapped up against NU, ME and UVM) and were right there in 2 other losses (losing to PC very late in OT), and giving up a 3 goal lead to BC (but they never beat BC regardless).
Upcoming stretch will be telling as the schedule gets MUCH harder. Forwards need to step up as an inordinate amount of the offense has been coming from the D (3 of the top 5 scorers). Myers, Bates, Bly and others need to consistently get on the box score (and not just PM's). My guess is that Marotta plays almost all of the remaining games. 4th would be a reach (UML is rolling right now, and PC is playing tough) but an unexpected win or 2 and who knows.

ah, thanks for the heads up! Monty, I love the idea of all games being at 7:30. I know many, if not all of the WCHA games start at 7:30 locally...

I believe the games were pushed back on Fridays due to the construction going on on campus (the Volpe expansion and new townhouses), which has limited the parking, but it hasn't been too bad. I know a lot of MC Alums work in Boston and/or on 95 so it's been great to have a little extra time to get there.

Spot on - the crux of the problem is that construction, coupled with additional sporting events in the Volpe Complex and/or events at the Rogers Center for the Arts cause quite a conundrum if they all occur/end at 7pm. The 7:30pm start is helpful, but the completion of the construction will make things a lot easier. Anxious to see the finished product!
