No wiggle room now for the Friars...pretty much have to take most of the HE 2 games series going forward....

One more OOC game on Tuesday at Yale...will be interesting to see how the rebound after another tough loss to the Beagles...

BTW if you are going to the Vermont game on Saturday, is has been moved up to 5pm start....probably due to a certain football game at Gillette that night...

PC kicked Yale's butt pretty good tonight in their best defensive performance and Nate got a crazy unsportsmanlike penalty on Duhaime's ejection.

Still wish Bjorkqvist would start showing up but he has been non existent this season.

The Friar fan turnout at this road-trip game was impressive. There was certainly more black & white than blue & white. The team played well, but the ECAC officiating was terrible. Can't believe Duhaime got ejected after the terrible Lemos hit. I'm stunned that Yale walked away without a penalty while the Friars dealt with a 5-minute major and a 2-minute unsportsmanlike conduct. I'm glad no one got hurt.

Watching the stream, I thought Duhaime deserved the ejection. The problem is the Lemos hit was just as or even worse which went uncalled. Plus Leaman picking up a penalty on that is so bad on the officials.

Not in the camp on Duhaime getting the ejection, didn't seem any worse than the one the Yale guy did earlier in the game against McPhee that only got that guy 2.

Anyway, Friars did a great job killing those penalties. (I believe Yale was also penalized so with the Leaman penalty it was 4 on 3, then 5 on 3 then 5 on 4 for the 5 minute time).

Hopefully they put an end to these going into HE play. Big weekend against the Catamounts, thinking they really need to sweep both home games, protect home ice.

Glad to see they got to move the Saturday game time up. Double header day for some of us with both bball and hockey tickets, Cooley's kids playing at the Dunk at noon.

I saw Duhaime make contact with the kids head against the glass and thought he left his feet a little. Duhaime and Vimal seem to be the two toughest freshmen on the squad.

Wilkins is starting to show his elite skill level lately and could be a real star at PC in the coming year or two.

Where was Foley last night? Is he hurt? The only reason PC lost to VT was that Hawkey had a bad game . Outplayed and outshot VT by 2 to 1 margin.

Those first two goals were far from his fault...if you are expecting your goalie to cover up defensive breakdowns like that you are in for a very long season as we are seeing. The problem is the coach has blamed Hawkey in the media (see Divver's article before the Denver game) for the team's poor play. He needs to address the defensive system which next season will feature five newcomers with the losses of Florentino, Monk, McKenzie, Ruggiero, and the likely loss of Walman.

That's not the reason PC lost. The defense is a mess this year. They are skating around not knowing the position they should be in. The coaching of the defense is a huge step back from 2 years when PC won the National title. Hawkey has let in some clinkers this year, but Hawkey wasn't the reason PC lost last night.
Shots mean nothing when almost all of the shots are coming from the point and the opposing goalie has a clear view. I would expect any goalie in Hockey East to make those saves. Remember all the shots the teams under the Army era took?? We all know how that ended.

I'm sorry this is none of my business, but is there really someone in here trying to start a "Fire Nate Leaman" movement? I love the USCHO Fan Forum.

Not sure if it's coaching, you are only as good as what goes over the boards. D is just not as talented, top 3, Flo, Mckenzie and Walman are very good, little suspect after them. PC will be just fine over next couple years.

I think they are missing the real reason PC lost--it was UVM's fault. They had a far more puck possession time and they played for good shots and really limited the good close in shots cutting off chances and getting resultant wild passes across the top of the slot where no one was

Overall the D has been solid and part of any D is the help the forwards provide. You have a team that is top quarter in goals against, is even better is fewest shots allowed. That said even the top 3 do have issues. MacKenzie isn't the fastest guy around (but he cleanly broke up a clean break in), I think Florentino could be more physical (though they then would complain about the penalties). Walman does gamble more than he should. The rest is right Monk is essentially a walk on, Young and Bryson learning on job--actually Young had a solid game with little experience under his belt. Bryson was abused I believe he was on the ice for all 4 goals but he is an undersized true freshman--it takes time

Young was abused on the first UVM goal. Flo wasn't in the lineup on Saturday while Vincent gets put back in? No consistency in the lineup can't help with team chemistry at all.

Monk was an absolute disaster all weekend on the offensive end of the ice...missed the net a ton on point shots and took a late penalty in the third period costing PC a chance to tie it up.

Wilkins continues to be PC's most skillful player and to me will turn into the best player if he isn't already on this squad.
