No reason to stop the Rotation. If anything Hanson may have a slight edge in my mind. Hanson got Hobart, Richer got Genny, pretty even there as well.
6-1-1 great start but we still have our trip up north and to Buffalo so we have a lot of Sunyac work to do yet. I don't understand the "#1" line, (Emmersson, Herlihey, Gillisepie) clearly Zizek and Berry are our top 2 centers, they are the engines driving the offense, load those 2 centers with your top wingers, whoever you think they are (Huffnagle, Herlihey, Molinario, Spink, Gillispie?) and see if we get a few more goals. Emmerson and Durocher have been solid 3rd and fourth line centers.
Brockport- I was disappointed with Brockport, I thought they would be better. They had no business being only down 1 early in the third, we had dominated them. Thank god we got the second goal. We couldn't score, can't really criticize players for not scoring on their chances, we know they want to score just as much as we want them to. I would like to see the puck down low on the PP more often, (especially on 5on3)even take it behind the net once and while. Force the goalie deep in his net, force the defense to move and choose, that's how Hobart got there PP goal on us. Nice game by Hufnagle, Berry again, pretty well everyone. Hanson was perfect. Gillispie thought the forward had snowed our goalie, smarter ways to get back at the player then take an obvious penalty. But it does remind me of a theory I heard, if you are so mad at a guy you are going to spear him, cross check or hit him from behind and take a penalty, then make sure he feels some pain. Gillispie was all in on that one.
Geneseo- Much better game, huge momentum swings, Genny all over us then we would be all over them. Richer Very good, but he should have stopped that first one. Huffnagle takes the hit to make the play, that's how Zizek ends up wide open. Hufnagle deserves to be in the top 6 forwards and the PP. Pelnik took a step backwards in this game. I expected we would see Genny's best after coming off a loss and at home so I'm pretty happy with the tie.
Overall- 3 points is very good. Offense is doing everything but scoring. Defense only gave up 2 goals, 1 even strength I believe. Goaltending pretty solid effort from both goalies.
