3 points at one of the very worst teams in the country... It's a start!

Sometimes I feel like Maine is the Steelers of the NCAA, except without the high-end talent. They generally seem to get up for big games, but play down to their competition and it costs them. With how thickly clustered the middle of Hockey East is, that point they gave away last night could end up having been huge.

I’m fine with Maine taking three points at Merrimack and UVM, it’s only getting one at UConn that really hurts.

Stray observations from first time seeing team live in a long time
*Power play is attrocious. Never got set up or effectively moved the puck all night.

*They’re slow. They have some skill and hands you could see on some drop passes but its all a step slow, a step too hesitant. Theres no gamebreaker.

*Swayman was a different goalie in the 2nd and 3rd. Maybe his warmup isnt right or maybe its just coincidence bur with this bunchc in front of him hes gotta be ready from the jump.

*Theyre so undisciplined. Start of the third I said to the person I was with, lets kill the carry over then stay out of the box. Maine proceeds to take 25 pentalty minutes, 10 in minors plus Shea’s 15. Shea I dont think had intent to injure but hes gotta be smarter than that in a one goal game. It was reckless.

Congratulations to Maine on a win. They tried desperately to lose that game. Fortunately, Maine's penalty kill is pretty good and Merrimack's offense is inept.

Pearson's health this coming weekend is going to be absolutely critical. I'm not sure how much they can do without him and his synergy with Fossier is remarkable. I suppose it's fun to say there's a huge late season series with BC, even if that dosent mean the same thing it would have in the old days.

Concussion from facebook group? Good win no matter how they played. How did Shea get a kneeing call? Stick his leg out ? Still too many penalties but I guess thats the way it is. On to BC

It was a pretty bad knee on knee leg check. No attempt to avoid it and the other player was down for a while. They reviewed the replay.

Also, the first goal they reviewed didn't go off a skate, went of Muehlbauer's stick. So the refs got that right too. I mentioned this because others thought it was a questionable call. Turns out it wasn't.

Yeah center ice leg check pretty much knee on knee. I dont think he was trying to do that but he was careless and put himself in terrible position. They reviewed it which I guess is a thing now

Gimme 1-0-1 at Merrimack, 1-1-1 against BU/BC, loss at Amherst. 2-2-2.

Perfect after 2.;)

Not sure about that!

The only lock I see going forward is getting walloped at Amherst. Maine could easily lose every other game left on the docket.

I know this will sound weird, but if this team finds it inside to turn up a notch... they could have a legit shot of going to he in Boston. I imagine it won't happen. However there isn't anything in he that is scary.

I'm pretty sure what he meant was his projection was that collectively between BC and BU was 1-1-1, and that's all the possible outcomes, so for the first game at least he's guaranteed to be right.

After watching them for the last 5 years, is there anything that would lead you to think they will turn it up a notch? I didn't think so :)

That Sam Becker is a smart kid. He's well spoken and when asked who to take on an island if he had to chose one teammate... Keeper. He said he would make sure he survives. Strikes me as a smart kid.
