Glad I'm not the only one who thought so.

Like your optimism, but....

Peanuts, I know, but the start of this game feels like it *should* be 2-0 Maine. Lindberg has already made a pair of Grade A stops

That focus thing someone was talking about earlier.

There were stretches of that first period where Maine was clearly the better team, at least in my opinion.

Agree, decent period. They actually looked prepared.

The play happened a few minutes ago, but Sam Becker is really awful.

I'm getting really tired of other teams taking liberties with Maine players.

My question is why’d they score more last year? They had 4 dbl digit goal scoers coming back (Tralmarks Fossier Doherty Robbins) and only Doherty may hit that this year. And we’re talking 10 goals not 20, which quite honestly isnt a high bar to set.

Were they lucky with shooting last year? Is there something different in their cycling ir forecheck thats bad?

I mean Fossier was the leading goal man last year and has 1 freakin goal this close to February

. So is it the players talent? Or the crap system? Or (probably) both.

Maine's schedule last year was as soft as butter in July, which gave some of us false hope vis-a-vis their record. The somewhat stiffer competition this season has exposed Red and his recruiting yet again.

These days, when interference is actually enforced, "systems" really matter very little. It's easy to coach hockey when you have superior speed and hands; and Maine is slow afoot and ham-handed... Ergo, what we have here.

Not pontificating, just my opinion.

Swayman looks good. Fossier misses wide open net. Westerlund makes it 1 0 Maine

These refs are eating their whistles big time, a couple calls both ways that could have easily been called. Another good period, hopefully they keep it up. Top line for Maine looks dynamite, second line not so bad themselves.

When is the last time Maine scored 2 on a 5min major, wow

And then a 3rd on the next penalty.
Good things happen when they hustle.

Entertaining game, Umass awarded a penalty shot but it was denied by Swayman. Then Maine got a 5 minute power play and another minor power play where they potted 3 power play goals. Both teams with a ton of chances and both clanked iron. Umass to start 3rd with 1 and half minutes of power play.

Maine 4-1 end of 2nd

I like how Sirota is playing. He makes smart simple plays to keep the puck in offensive zone. He seems solid in his own end. Is playing point on the 2nd power play unit. Not bad for only joining Maine beginning of this semester.

Hopefully they can stay out of the box.

Didnt see Michel get hit but looks like could be concussion, had his head down went he went off the ice to the locker room.
