As I was saying, a 3-2 win in OT is a perfect start to the weekend.

[QUOTE=The Freds;6105231]No, not tonight. Not against this UMass team. At this point in the year a sweep against UMass is what is necessary. Sorry 91. A tie is less than acceptable.[/QUOTE

I would have taken a tie because UMASS is a garbage team and a loss would have really hurt PC. Glad as hell that they forced OT then got the win. They seemed to be outplayed for most of the game but got it together in the end. I'll take it. :)

So much respect for UMass's goalie. Man, what a game.

So happy I got to see a win!

Nice win..

In fairness they were not outplayed, not at all
1st goal was a joke, happens though. Were outshooting them 8-0 and first shot goes in. 2nd goal was a bill Buckner special.

Good teams win when they are unlucky.

Getting very tight for 3td and 5th spot

Maybe you guys see it different than me but I take a goalie like Ty Conklin over Gillies every day of the week. From someone that saw Ty and Jon night in and night out, I am more of a Conklin guy who was playing in a wide open system.
I'd take Hokeydad over Zlax.

I'd say that is pretty fair. Only time I thought mass was outplaying was in part of the 2nd period. And yes good teams do find ways to win when things aren't breaking their way

Very happy for them. Team has a lot of heart. Love watching Macparland. Talk about a kid clearly thrilled with a second life.
Off to EBay to sell my bobblehead. Hoping to beat out Kenny Powers home run bat

A couple of thoughts

Playing on Zlax's note comparing Conklin vs Gillies (which itself i won't comment on-though how Zlax could say he saw Conklin play all the time when he said he always traveled to see PC play is interesting). The defense does do a good job of limiting the number of shots. What is frustrating is that it feels like they have deflected about 5 goals past Gillies this year

Offensively I know we benefitted twice this year from overturned goals this year, however we have had a lot of goals overturned of our own. That I believe is one reason I think the offense has struggled. Rooney/McParland!s line in particular but even Acciari and Mauerman we dug a lot of goals in scrambles in front of the net Leaman's first 3 years, this year we seem to have backed off that type of digging in front of the net because those goals are getting overturned and that very well could be a double hit, no goal and a loss of momentum. Anyway when you don't have the snipers teams like BC BU and NU have and you can't change offensive style on a dime so we struggle.

Watching Janko play, I think his biggest problem is he doesn't make those with him better. Acciari certainly does. Yes he got Mingoia when he went in a slump and Demo is Demo, but of all our lines they were the least effective last night. Yet at crunch time playing with othervJanko helped set up the tying goals. Others have to make him better, the expectation was the opposite.

Sure is.
Now need a perfect end to the weekend.
Tonight's battle at UMass is critical
This is the "game in hand " that the friars have over BC and UMLowell.
If they win tonight they will be in second place in HE.
Big opportunity, Huge incentive.

... And we lose.

And of course that goal stands. This isn't getting old at all.
Let's see how many goals are reviewed next weekend.
