Pearson has turned himself into a pretty good player. If Maine had 4-5 more of him, they might be 9-5 right now.

What sunk him was Scott Darling and missing the NCAAs with 3 years of Gus Nyquist. Thats just absurd to get that kid to stay that long and not make the tournament.

That too. And I think I forgot to mention Marrone.

The more I see Reds team the more you guys are convincing me to miss the TW era. Crazy!!

Great goal by Doherty by the way.

Whats the atttendance, less than 1000?

Blind hogs find the occasional acorn... But Maine is playing hard in the O end, and this is a fun game to watch.

Arguably Maine's best period of hockey we've seen this season. Maine up 4-2

A lot of up tempo effort from forwards and d too. Gotta get that effort each shift into the third and maybe Maine can get the monkey off their back... or at least it is a good start on it.

I was amazed that Sill got an NHL job. He never looked like that kind of guy at Maine. Maybe where he played in college tilted the effect.

I forget, but wasn't he a one-season low-impact NHL player?

Wasn't the word on the street at the time both Sill and Darling had party issues? I can't fault a coach kicking them off the team for that. Maybe more background was needed when recruiting. Which he probably had with Standbrook but not so much with the rest of the recruiters.

Helluva save there on Westerlund off Smiths rebound shot. Good instincts.

Helps when your good buddy is Sid the kid.

That was a solid game, especially after the first few minutes. Maybe they figured something else and are about to get in gear, who knows.

Very solid effort finally. Maybe CC had bus legs. But I noticed a great difference in efforttonight at all positions. I think Quinlivan will devolp as time goes on and become that spark plug effort guys with captain type on ice leadership. He's come a long ways as has Smith. Love the play out of both of these guys.

Good effort from Maine in the net, and an entertaining game to see. Glad I made the time to watch between cooking for the in-laws and fending-off The Warden.

This team is a responsible D and a couple of snipers away from getting back into the National conversation, but that's been the same deal for a few years now...

That's all the praise we can expect from you. Of course, you are right in that we will grind to be bubble he playoff team. But encouragement goes a long way. Bottom line is we need this effort each shift. If everyone gives what they have each shift, this team could surprise folks. Take it one shift at a time.

I know a lot of Mainuhs like various videos. Out of woods... 99 highlights... etc, but in a lot of ways this is my favorite.

Geesh the boys played great tonight.... yet crickets. You would think there could be some praise. Crickets from the negative nellys.

Shea took penalty tonight. Great penalty drove hard to the net front. That's a good penalty for me. He got rewarded with a goal. Drive hard and get those penalties all day long. Not the lazy hooking and cheap shots. Drive their net front hard. And protect our netminder.
