We need one. Let's see how much traction it gets.

I will say, Colby looked very good this weekend. Fast and good goal tending. I think they may compete for the upper echelon of the league this year. The December 3-4 games vs Bowdoin will be great indicator.

I didn't see the game, but by the numbers the Panthers looked pretty lousy. Sounds like you saw the Colby game at least. What do you think?

They looked better in the second game on the bigger ice, as you would expect. They are a young team with pretty good goal tending. Both games were winnable for Midd despite being out shot. They had a brief two goal lead against Bowdoin, but gave one right back and couldn't hang on for the win. Bowdoin and Colby both had vast advantages in offensive zone time.

Does anyone know the story behind Mike Najjar's disappearance from the Middlebury roster this year?
Also, any intererest in a NESCAC pick 'em? I know, we would be off to a late start, just like the 'CAC season.

I don't recall seeing Middlebury ever take nearly so many penalties--27 in four games?!

Thanks for starting this year's thread.

Saw Tufts lose 3-1 to Western New England in the RHI tournament final last night. Jumbos gave up a couple of mistake induce goals in the first period that turned out to be their undoing. WNE goalie was excellent. Tufts outshot WNE, 36-20, for the game and 19-2 in the third period! All to no avail. Jumbos appear to have the size, speed and strong goal tending to make some noise in the NESCAC this season.

Amherst was very impressive last night beating a good Babson club. 6 first year skaters were dressed and they all skated like veteran players. This team should be around come March

Best start for the Mules in I don't know how many years - more than eight. And that overtime loss to Geneseo... That was almost as heartening as a win, in that it was proof that they belong in the upper echelon of D-3 as well as NESCAC. They did it without Devin Albert, arguably their best player - out with an upper body injury. I hope he is back for the big Bowdoin weekend. This season might be fun for me for a change...

I don't recall seeing Middlebury start 0-4. Could be a very long season in Vermont.

I fear it could be so. Good goaltending and an inexperienced team. Perhaps they will improve quickly.

This looks about right, but I think Tufts is going to take Williams - probably in OT:

Colby 3 Bowdoin 2
Conn Col 1 Midd 4
Hamilton 2 Trinity 8
Amherst 2 Wesleyan 1
Tufts 3 Williams 2 OT

Mule Train! Ha!

Bowdoin 3 - Colby 2

Middlebury 2 - Conn College 1

Hamilton 3 - Trinity 2

Amherst 3 - Wesleyan 2

Tufts 3 - Williams 2

Shapes up to be an interesting weekend. May give a little clearer picture of the NESCAC pecking order.

78 combined shots on goal - 2-1 final score - some of the best goaltending you could hope to see. Colby at Bowdoin last night was one of the best of the 207 installments.

Tonight:

Colby 4 - Bowdoin 1
Amherst 3 - Trinity 1
Wesleyan 2 - Hamilton 1
Tufts 5 - Midd 1
Williams 4 - Conn Col 0

Pinch me!

Strange things are happening. Jumbos had leads of 2-0 and 3-2 but could not hold on for the win. Both goal tenders were excellent as you would expect.

Tonight:

Bowdoin 3 - Colby 2

Amherst 4 - Trinity 2

Hamilton 2 - Wesleyan 1

Williams 5 - Conn College 2

Tufts 4 - Middlebury 2
