Anyone remember that old "PC hosts Quinnipiac" thread from years ago? Both programs have come a long way., eh?

I remember QU playing Cornell in the NCAA's in Worcester and scoring on themselves in the first minute of play. A long way indeed...

That thread was AWESOME. Did that devolve into "Fire Pooley" or "Fire Army"? Or both?

Can't wait for tomorrow night! Was able to get $8 tix through the alumni offering. I know there was a chance of some kind of PC pregame reception or meet up, I dont think this is the case but will there be a good Friar showing? I forget where exactly my seats are, I want to say Sec 107, and it was with this providence promo so hopin to be surrounded by friendly faces! Also whats the deal with parking, is it free or a garage or a fee? Comin from Bridgeport, glad to have the half day off work leading into the holiday

There will be Q fans at any nearby bar so I would just assume that. Side Street Bar is nearby and has good pub food as does Elis on Whitney. Odies Place is a typical college dive with pizza and wings. Plan to get to the parking lot access road at least one half hour before game time, unless you want to miss the first half of the first period. Parking lot pre gaming works as well, but it can be cold and windy on that hill.

I think Behling deserves to be in the lineup over DeJersey.

Monk runs the point better than Parisi and Gilmore right now...

On the first point yes that is why I brought it up, and the coach seems agree. Then again how difficult a choice is it, bigger then Demo, and he has been involved in the offense when dressed, Demo has been offensively AWOL all year.

Mingoria gets the start with Janko and McPhee. Looks like Accari's line is moving up the charts with Army added and McPharland playing well.

Your last point looks like Leaman totally agreed with you. Parisi sits for Monk tonight

Fire Pooley......long before Army......I think the title included whatever the old Qpac nickname was before bobcats

While it is hard to get a true picture watching on TV, I have to say I like what I saw tonight. PC is a real program once again. Hallelujah.

Have to say that is a great PC team I watched play my team tonight. Jon Gillies is amazing and could carry you guys all the way to Philadelphia.

I'll take the tie, and I wish I were still a student.

Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Good game tonight. PC, like us, has come a long way in the past couple of years. Two really good programs with bright futures. Best of luck the rest of the way. Maybe we'll run into each other again before this season is through...

I don't want to see that Quinnipiac team ever again...way too many weapons! It was a great game though and onto Brown now!

Time to put my thoughts together from this crazy game. Gillies saved PC's butt tonight by being really solid in the third and OT.

Brooks Behling continues to impress by playing a good grinding game.

The real story of the night was Mingola who looked like an elite goal scoring/set up guy for the PC offense. I was impressed with him throughout the night and his pass to Mauermann on the first goal was right on the money.

PC's defense is still the weakness as Gilmour got beat badly on the first QU goal and McKenzie made a bad pinch on QU's third goal.

Jankowski has he even been playing? He is not showing up lately at all and needs to live up to his talent.

1. Scary thought. Behling's power play goal broke an 0-16 streak dating back to the Merrimack series.
2. Scarier thought. We are 8-63 on anyone not named AIC on the power play
3. Scariest thought of all! Of those 8 goals 5 have been with a 2 man advantage
4. I think to ultimately solve the power play issue we need to recruit a true sniper. Trouble is we have 6 forwards verballed to us over the next 3 years and at the moment I would not describe any as a true sniper
5. That role most likely was the role Leaman foresaw for DeJersey, but you need to fight for position to snipe.
6. I actually would not be surprised if we bring in only 1 forward since we only lose Derek, and at the moment I suspect it will Brian Pinho over Dylan McLaughlin since he has more upside and is a bit bigger. Indiana lists him at 186 and I've seen him listed for as much as 200.
7. On the defensive issues. Pooley gave his defense a safety net by having them stay at home, ultimately despite saying he wanted his defense to be mobile, he kept them at home also, went smaller and didn't understand why they played like they did. Despite the issues the Leaman system has them in the offensive flow
8. The trade off in styles is how many times has a team actually scored vs what they have added to the offense. In Army's last year the defense scored 6 goals for the whole season (5 by Baier), the defense already has 10 this year.
9. The defense is still young. Last night they played 3 freshmen (1 who has played less than half the games) and 1 sophomore (In most games it has been 2 freshmen and 2 sophomores). How much they can get their act together in the next 6 weeks will tell us how successful this team will be down the stretch and in the playoffs.
10. We do need an answer as how to contain fast/quick teams. Miami's top line, UNH, and now Qpac all looked very good vs PC.
11. With the upgraded facilities and the fact that Gillies is a once in a 40 year player (in other words since Ronnie Wilson stepped on the ice), Leaman needs to make hay with his recruiting now or he very well could waste the opportunity just as Pooley did in '01.
12. We need to end this trend right now of being totally outplayed in the 3rd period. UNH outshot Providence 16-6 and Qpac 15-3, and it certainly didn't help to take 2 late penalties last night.
13. 9 of the next 10 games we will go in as the clear favorite so it is time to take care of business and beat the teams we are suppose to beat.
14. It is possible depending on the WJC scheduling/travel and how much Leaman is willing to let Ellis play but Ellis could get 7 of those 10 games.

Jankowski has he even been playing? He is not showing up lately at all and needs to live up to his talent.

He has a long way to go to be what Calgary thinks he can be, but he is on path to score between 15 and 20 goals. If he was more than that already he wouldn't be here. This is a learning process and as long as he makes progess its the nature of being in what in his case is a development league.

He is the 2nd youngest Friar even now as a sophomore (only Florentino is younger and he has a much more developed build). Realistically he needs 10-15 more pounds to be an effective at his size even in college (most likely 25-30 for the pros). He looks to very much be on a path to spend all 4 years in college as he did come in early last year.

Would love to have his skill in Connor MacPhee's body.....however MacPhee is over 2 years older than him.

Looking for an audio/video feed for the Mayor's Cup game. None from Brown but I note that PC has one but it is a subscription base. Before I sign on for the game, how is the quality of audio/video?

Thanks. Should be better than any Black Friday purchase with these two teams involved.

Brown has this game available via AM790, which means you should be able to listen to Brown's feed via the 790 website.

Thanks as I did not see that on Brown's website. If it is Mike R still doing the broadcasting (Jon's favorite), that will be my choice. Please post this on the Brown thread.
