    Yup he has my vote along with Cleland and Pesce (hopefully). Love next years Srs too but not sure who has that leadership thing going on. We'll find out at the HE banquet April 25!

    Think my tix are in Loge 19 row 9 but we can coordinate like last time...won't be there until the 'Cats game... Between 1 and 2nd periods? At that cool place with the big windows if I remember correctly. I do believe it's an "adult beverage" area NOT that it matters, of course...

    We happened by TY K at the UVM game taping his stick in the stands like he always does...and they had lost to UVM the night before. We asked if he was ready to go and he said "we are going to win tonight" very matter of factly. Yup...they did.

    from what I can see I woudl say so, and wouldnt be surprise with the C. Watch him in warm up getting all the guys into to, and the way he is always talking to the REfs like Cleland. The underclassmen have been the key to the 2nd half I thinkg.

    Cant wait to get down to Boston Friday

    Bonus question, which thread would you pick without the context from the past 4 weeks?

    Congrats to the team for some truly gutsy play this weekend.....it's been quite a while, and I know they've renovated a bit but we hated playing at Schneider so even more kudos! I loved seeing Wildcat Nation's response on the other thread....as was being noted, for Umile to get to the Garden during an obvious rebuilding year, is remarkable! Having watched most of the year online and TV, the stands never were more than 2/3 full but a couple of times....tickets could be had for $11....we're talking UNH hockey here! So well done Umi, Scott, and Stewy!! Enjoy the journey.....

    To e.cat (continuing from the previous thread about the game time): But actually, isn't that better for you guys? I would assume that the UVM people are going to make a weekend out of it, and the Lowell and BU people are obviously close by. But UNH people are most likely going to drive down each night...I can't imagine the 5:00 game would be good for those trying to get out of work and rush down here. So even though we know the $ dictates, it's kinda good the way it worked out, right? (not to mention since it's Friday, you might as well leave at Noon if you want to get here on time) Of course, you could always take the train! Ha ha ha ha (inside joke for those of us that have had to ride commuter rail for the past two months)

    Hey chickod. I think you are right that it might work for a lot of UNH fans but I'm not entirely sure about the extent of that. In my case for example, I'm taking the Downeaster out of Wells, Me. at 1:30pm to North Station. Then I'll probably head over to the Fours. Easy breezy! Last year I did the same thing and it worked like a charm. No driving, no parking, no hassle. The train stopped in Durham, Dover, Exeter and somewhere else and picked up UNH fans all along the way. It was great. But, ya, the late game probably works for a lot of UNH fans what with work and all. BTW, I used to take the B&M out of Natick to Boston back in the day. It was great except for those HHH days in the dog days of summer when the AC was broken down in which case I would sweat my ba11s off!!

    What do you do if the games run late?

    I never take the train because I fear OT and missing the end of the game. I just park at Wellington and take the T in to the Garden.

    You're right JB, that is a concern. Wellington Station would work for me too and eliminate that concern. Based on the QF's OT wouldn't surprise me!

    I hear you! Although the Downeaster (my sister who lives in Dover takes it into Cambridge frequently) is MUCH more reliable than the MBTA / MBRC / Keolis excuse for a "train." So that's less of a risk. Not having the AC is bad enough, but the past year they have been not on schedule and frequently breaking down. Plus, they are so overcrowded now that people are standing in the aisles more than you would imagine. Not fun!!! But it IS a good point about Wellington. The first game may be 0-0 in the 5th OT. Ha ha

    That's always been my approach, JB. The T eventually stops running (used to be @ 1:00 a.m.??), but I figure you can always get a cab from North Station to Medford if necessary, and it's a lot less expensive than a cab from North Station to NH.

    Or there's always the option of "sleeping in" at the Garden, like they did after the first round of the '78 Beanpot. Can only imagine how much *fun* that would have been in the old building, what with the rodent issues, etc.

    I always remember my first trip to the Beanpot was for the '79 Finals (BU beat BC with several future "Miracle on Ice" US Olympians skating that evening) the following February, and then a month later we went back to see UNH beat Dartmouth in the ECAC Finals. That was my senior year in HS. Good times.

    Wasn't it 2008 when UNH gacked up a 3 goal lead and lost to BC in the early game, with multiple OT's? Took the whole family for that one ... and suffice to say we didn't stick around for the nightcap.

    Yes...and the BU/Vermont game didn't start until around 11:00 p.m. if I recall. We got smoked and it was almost as if nobody cared (or was awake). Even one of the longtime BU diehards who was sitting in front of me left after the 1st period (although I didn't know at the time that she had cancer and actually passed away shortly after). So, yeah, that definitely justifies your train phobia!!
