Another holiday weekend, think we will not see a lot of students for this one...possibly no band either...

Giveaways though for tonight...not aloud to have UMASS fans win :D:D

Already down 2-0. Not ideal.

They kept replaying the third UMASS goal over and over until they convinced me Hawkey was interfered with. Sigh,

To be expected, the UMASS goalie outperformed the friar goalie.
The UMASS PK outperformed the friar PP.
Game over.

0 for 7 on PP and gave up a short handed goal......they don't belong in the top 10 if this keeps up

They have beaten one decent team this year in Miami who is 8-4-0. The rest of the wins have been less than stellar with AIC, UConn, BU, and Holy Cross while tying the atrocious Sacred Heart squad. They were beaten by a good Notre Dame team and a likely NCAA team in UMass both nights. There is something wrong with this team that they came out the last two nights playing stupid hockey by taking unnecessary penalties see Vimal's penalty on Thursday, Duhaime's on Saturday, etc...

Where is the leadership on this squad? Dugan looks like the only kid that I would want on my team as a forward while the junior group continues to do nothing.

As of right now, PC is only 20th in the PWR and it isn't going to improve much with Hockey East struggling out of conference as much as they have.

I thought the change in their PP attack cost them. To work, the man picking up the drop pass has to already be flying and the timing be perfect . It wasn’t, hence 0 fer 7. Pre-game I think they were at 27% so why change?

O’Brien was missed to. What’s the word on him?

Better start winning again starting against Merrimack, which always plays PC tough and I expect more so with their new HC being from Leaman's staff.....

Not a fan of the drop back pass, this is something new, hadn't seen a Leaman team do that until this series....

I hate this play also as it can lead to short handed goals allowed with a bad drop pass also.

Big 2 games this weekend. Thinking they need to sweep to gain some momentum. Merrimack seems to play Friars tough especially up in North Andover. Hopefully Friars stay out of the box, Hawkey doesn't make some stupid play behind net like last week, they don't fall behind early and they put the puck in the net (early).

I will be overjoyed if they stay out of the box and play a real game

Agreed! PC needs to sweep against a solid Merrimack team in order to stay in the top 10 and get back on track. Anything less is a problem.

Game one in the books as Friars dominate Merrimack, 7-2.

Couple of career first time goals: Thompson and O'Neill, Kasper with 2, Vimal with one, Dugan and Duhaime with one apiece

Friars held Merrimack to 11 shots in this game....gifted them 2 goals in the third...

Friars started out scoring 13 seconds into the game then added 2 more in that period...one in the second and 3 in the third

44 shots on net for PC in this one...

Good start to weekend, let's hope they finish it off tomorrow...

Bring a can good and a teddy bear tomorrow if you are going...

Does PC have a goalie problem? Last two games, Hawkey has been terrible, on top of his poor play against UMass, that lead to the sweep. He was solid last year, and he is playing two notches below last year IMO. If Hawkey regains his game, this is a top 5 team.

Very good question. The last 4 games the friars allowed few shots on goal, but Hawkey is not stopping them. Hope this is a temporary slump.
