Well that shows you how hard it is to get behind on the road in a big game. Hats off to Qpac, but also have to say I've (almost) never been prouder of a Union team. The way they pulled everything together in the last 3-4 weeks and played with discipline & heart was just phenomenal. Anyone who questioned the heart of these players or the skills of the coaching staff better stand down. This weekend was fantastic hockey played by two very skilled well coached teams, that BTW are both pretty young and should get better in the next couple years. Very sad to see the seniors skate off the ice for the last time in Union colors and want to thank them for 4 of the best years of Union hockey history- you will not be forgotten. As for next season, looking forward to building on this finish and the new players that will be added to the fold. Much to be optimistic about.

In the three games we took a page out of the Q handbook and we blocked
29 shots
26 shots
23 shots
This was 3-4 times our average going in ... we were giving it our best.
Hope Anas is ok. He is their leading scorer and they are not going to want to be in Lake Placid without him being 100%.
Would have liked to have seen Yale in the mix as well as all the others.
We are losing 29% of our scoring, Stevens ....
Vechionne line returns intact ....
Defense returns intact ....
Exciting games on tap for next year - BU comes to Schenectady !!!!! Michigan?
IMO ECAC best goal tending ..... look at the top defensive teams in the country (7 of top 19)

The season that left the Union faithful wondering weekend after weekend if the turn was in the stars is over, but not before one last tantalizing series with Q'pac. That series was a metaphor for the season with an improbable loss on Friday, a gutsy win on Sat., and a hot goaltender for Q'pac on Sunday. Union fans had certainly been treated to a fabulous three years. The past season could be considered a cold shower for some, but the preceding three have left Dutchmen everywhere standing taller than ever before. Hats off to RB and his staff and an incredible group of young men!

Just wanted to say congratulations on an impressive 3 year run. I was in Philly to see you guys win last year and I couldn't have been happier for you guys. Every U fan I've met has been knowledgeable and dedicated. So hard to replace the top defensive duo in the country. Your record didn't do you justice this year. Looking forward to more battles next year from you guys.

Nice write up over at CHN. Union has been the class of the league over the past 3 seasons and the loss this weekend doesn't diminish any of those accomplishments. I'm sure every other ECAC team wishes they could reach that same level of dominance and humility.

I'd love to be able to apologize for being the ones to knock you out but as the saying goes, to be the best you need to beat the best!

Ciampini is a top 10 Hobey finalist: http://bit.ly/1CxoO6R

He probably won't make the top 3, but the top 10 is still a nice honor for a great season.

Champ named to All-League team by media and came in 3rd for POY. Foo named to All-Rookie team. I would expect the same when the coaches awards come out today, with Taylor & Vecks possibly on 2nd or 3rd AL teams.

That's where I had Ciampini on my ballot as well, 3rd for POY and on all-conference team. I had Scarfo instead of Foo on my rookie team, though the difference is pretty negligible.

Coaches awards are out - Champ 1st Team, Taylor 3rd, Foo AR. Too bad Vecchione wasn't named but can't argue much with who was picked.. a lot of great players in the league right now. As something to watch next season, with 50 points this season Vecks is now at 86 for career and could pass 100 by the end of the calendar year if everything goes right. Could challenge for all-time at this pace.


Stevens to sign deal with Floridahttp://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=759040
That's good news and very happy for Colin. A great kid who worked hard and nice to see a local boy do good. Florida could be a good place to get some opportunities with Loungo on the backside of his career. This has been quite a run for U in the goaltending department, hope Alex & the frosh can keep it going next season.

Mike Vechionne not being named to one of the all league teams is a joke.
tied for 2nd in league in scoring, 4th in league in goals, lef league in assists and was the player of the week more than any player in league.
what a farce
Also top ten in league in +/_
