I thought the game winning goal Chris Terreri gave up to lose the national championship was soft. ;). He'll he gave up over 3 goals a game that year...he really sucked

He was distracted by the Cooperalls.

Just noticed Gillies is number one in Hockey east in save % at 949 and total saves at 183. Third in Hockey East in GA per game at 1.68.

Off year

Little annoyed that he is not top ten in scoring though.....

Played with the national stats, using a small but still significant period of time now, that since Nov 1 Gillies has the lowest gaa .88 and a .972 save, best in the nation. So over a fairly significant portion of this hockey season it is clear Gillies is the hottest goal in college hockey

Speaking of recruits and goalies Hayden Hawkey's season is over...he supposedly suffered a serious knee injury....McMahon, the Merrimack beat writer retweeted a tweet saying MCL/ACL

Wow, never saw this player... gosh that jersey could have sold for high figures at Lowell.

Hottest and the best.

He couldn't train all summer, couldn't even participate in Calgarys dev camp. First 4/5 games was basically his pre season
People seem to forget he is a 94 birthyear, goalies develop late. Watch and enjoy, PC wont have another like him for a very long time. That BC game and some of the saves he made was off the charts... Dozens of Hockey East freshman are older than he is....
PC is ready to roll. Saracino, Mauerman both scoring while basically on their backs in the crease last night was very encouraging.

Surely you can't be serious.

Thank you for this info, Jeff. Given his size -- is Prattson expected to play elsewhere before coming to Providence?

Kid is only a sophomore in high school so at least 2017-2018 will be his freshman season at PC...kid will grow some between now and then

Gillies needs to score more goals.

Interesting that Hennessy dressed today vs Northeastern with no one battling an injury and whooping NU 5-1 on Wednesday...odd move

Starting to question Leaman's development of players....besides Gillies, players are regressing under him...Gilmore and Parisi have dropped off considerably since their freshmen seasons...Florentino is starting to follow that

Jankowski is about the same player that he was as a freshman and Calgary can't be happy with him right now. Demo has been awful the last 2.5 seasons and now Mauermann levels are dropping off his junior year.

Just a few examples but there isn't a ton of players getting better at PC under Leaman.

You are flat out wrong on Parisi....he has developed real well.

I am not sure if Gilmour is 100%. Rember he got hurt in development camp with Calgary and was not even ready to start the season

Sadly Calgary is going to need to very patient, you can see the talent but he has not figured it out. I guess in a perfect world he would have spent the last 2 years at Cedar Rapids, come in this year as a 20 year old freshman (as Hokey has says about Gillies is even more true about Janko who was only 17 when he stepped on campus) spend 4 years here, then gets his feet wet in the pros. I bet he emerges late in the znHL about 25,

Mauerman consider he was never meant to shoulder the load. He isn't the type of talent such as DiSalvatore who can do it regardless of what the rest of the team is doing. He will be fine if the team ever finds their offense. When he is the focus of a team's defense he can be shut down. This actually began 2nd semester last year when we did not play as well as early in the year I guess our best hope is Pinho emerges in the 2nd half like he did in the USHL.

As far as Demo goes I don't see practice but he does his job back checking. I know it's frustrating on a team that is not scoring that you have him in the line up but he is less likely to make a mistake.

Someone did say what does this say for DeJersey that Hennessey is playing. Yes do find it curious move but again I don't know the underlying reasons. I thought MacPharland was providing some offense and he is a good PK guy.

There does seem to be a pattern, you were in the house for the 2-1 UVM loss. It is all your fault. ;)

I accept all responsibility for offensive and defensive lapses. I am just a distraction with my rose colored glasses after all.

Maybe I should claim I was there was only after victories. ;)

Team will be fine. Tough loss but not a quality win opportunity for NCAA anyways.
They will have to get it going Tuesday, must win for tourn
Will have to make Hockey East finals I would guess

They are getting their chances, just need to bang them in. Several good looks and chances, little bit snake bitten.

Leaman always seems to get them to bounce back

Think Ohio State, N Dakota, BU and so on. Last year at Maine....

Big game Tuesday

Instead of getting them to bounce back maybe the coach could get them to stand up and play like a team

Top 4 in Hockey East.
Wins over BU, BC, UNH, MC, UVM, NU
Will be tough to beat in playoffs
Looks like everyone in league is in same boat

Everyone but UML right now. Not totally sold on BU yet. Going to be a dog fight for at least 3 of those top 4 spots as UML could run away for first like BC did last year.
