I was just getting ready to post this when I saw yo had done so. Interesting that 2 former Brown players - Steele and hathaway - turn into Golden Glovers when they leave brown.
BTW, I am taking in my first devils game Monday. Providence is in town and Mark Naclerio, Brown's captain may be playing. He has been out for awile with a concussion.

Merry Christmas Turk!!

Merry Christmas Turk!!Maybe I’ll go to that game myself. Too bad about Naclerio. He had a pretty serious concussion while at Avon Old Farms. Merry Christmas to you too Mike. (maybe Santa can bring both our teams some W’s)

Didnít go to the game, had company. Naclerio was loaned to Atlanta (ECHL) today. My guess would be for conditioning.

perhaps. Providence has added several players who have played well, including Union's Simpson, and he may have trouble getting back on the roster. All depends how he does in Atlanta. BTW, Providence Bruins are a strong AHL club. I was impressed.

Wow - looks like we played a pretty wild game last night. Giving up 8 goals on 20 shots is...interesting. I'm pleased to see that we were able to score a lot, but I wish it wasn't just the first line producing.

Wild game... It's good to see the guys scoring goals but the Bears need to play a little better defensively tonight against a good Connecticut team.

Tim Lapin is out for a while with a broken jaw. Alex Brink is gone for the season. Brown is down to thirteen forwards, and the thirteenth forward is a converted defenseman...

Good luck to the Bears tonight. A championship in the Desert Classic would be a nice way to start the second half of the season.

Wow...Lappin can't catch a break! (No pun intended)

Two years in a row with a substantial injury. It's too bad - I really like how he plays.

Every line but 4th scored. Watched on-line it appeared first line struggled defensively, Our defense were far too offensive, pinch way too much, making defensive errors with no coverage. Too many players thinking they can skate end to end. Coaches should be disciplining players for stupid penalties and selfish play. Every player should be required to play defense or they should not play. Without better discipline and defense this team will not be able to win. Our goalies have yet to steal a game for us. Players will not improve until coaching requires it.

Discipline start with coaching and setting expectations of responsible play.

Agreed! Accountability is huge. The coaching staff needs to establish structure and demand that players adhere to it. There's plenty of talent in this team, but little cohesion.

Re: the first line - yes, we got some production from other lines on Friday, but the first line accounted for seven of the nine goals. We need more balanced distribution in scoring, or else teams will easily be able to shut us down (like last year once conference play started).

Interesting interview (http://digital.hockeyjournal.com/nxtbooks/seamans/nehj_201701/?startid=6#/82) with Charlie Corcoran. I had no idea he had family ties to Brown.

According to Mark Divver, Dane Cooper's career is over as a result of post-concussion symptoms. That's horrible to hear. I hope it doesn't affect his daily life.

Also just saw that Will Scherer will leave Brown and return to juniors. I cannot fathom why he only played two games this year. He's one of our most talented defenders. Another example of the coaching staff not "getting" it.

I was at the Colgate game when Dane was unnecessarily blindsided by a Colgate player. Dirty hit. Dane is a good kid and deserves better. Trust and hope he stays at Brown and gets his degree.

Box score says 488 at the game. Picture suggests a lot, and I mean a lot, less:

While a good matchup, it is understandable as it would be clearly difficult to make it to the game over bad roads, find a parking spot within hiking range and keep warm in frigid Meehan.

Most of the Corcoran family went to Brown. However, Charlie's father, John, was a co-captain at Bowdoin (Class of 1982). John Corcoran, who went to prep school at Saint George's (Newport), was a scoring machine for the Polar Bears between 1979 and 1982: 135 points on 57 goals and 78 assists in 101 games. John graduated as the all-time leading scorer for Bowdoin. He still ranks 9th among all-time Bowdoin scorers.

Dane is an intelligent young man who's looking at a bright future in a career other than hockey.

Defenseman Will Scherer has left the team, and returned to junior hockey.
