I expect I'll be around much more in calendar year 2018, but this semester's schedule has had a lot of conflicts for me. If they we're off to a hot start maybe I'd shuffle some more things to get to games. But that is not the case
Hockey season could be worse; check out what's going on with St. Lawrence.
Looking at the schedule, when does our next win come? Honestly I mean, Army is good. UNH at their place? no way. Northeastern? Just beat us. On the road at Denver? LOL yeah right and even at CC, we can't win on the road. That rules out at UCOnn and at Providence. Maybe home against UCONN on 1/13? I really think we could be 2-16-3 coming into that game which would be incredibly depressing.
Maybe I am being too negative, but I am just so down on this entire program. It feels totally hopeless. Every time we are supposed to be good, we crap ourselves. This was the year we all thought we would make some moves with so many people back, but nothing. Actually worse than last year.
yay, we win...

Hope one of the guys on punishment was Seney. Kid spent more time in the box than on the ice last week.
Some of the offending players last weekend were on locker room cleaning duty this week, according to Dennehy.
“There are some punitive parts to it,” he said. “There might have been some locker room duty for some guys. We can’t let (undisciplined play) go unnoticed. We have to address it right away. We needed to play with more discipline and we did that tonight, which is a good sign because that’s a hard team to play against.”
Anyone know where I can purchase a Merrimack Jersey with the "MC" on the front like they use to wear? Thanks
On another note, unexpected nice win up at Lake Whitt. Thought we might see a repeat of the PC game after the 'Cats scored 2 early in the 3rd, but they held on. Not in the basement anymore!!

We're #10!! We're #10!!!!
D1 update - I've heard that the NEC has postponed their vote which would have included the decision to add MC I still think it's pretty much a done deal, though.. just an administrative hiccup..... hopefully
I think we should all Pat ourselves on the back for providing bulletin board material to the kids leading up to this weekend.
Was in attendance up in the Seacoast. Aside from having the fish thrown before I even got to my seat, good first period (combined with a pretty awful performance by Tirone and co).
They very nearly ****ed it away. I think we saw some of the lack of discipline that coach had talked about recently start to creep in in the second period. And late in the third, UNH nearly had a puck that went probably 3/4 across the line, gently bouncing off the post that really should have been the thing goal. I guess this is that "puck luck" MacMahon always talks about.
8 goals on the weekend - good lookin! When's the last time they did that?
How bout we grab a point from Northeastern next weekend as a Christmas send-off before the inevitable drubbing out in Denver?
P.S. It appears they serve beer now at the Whitt! If so, big win for Hockey East and really America as a whole.

I saw Merrimack play NU twice last weekend, so I can't say that I'm surprised. Those folks who have posted that your team is one of the worst in the country really don't have a clue. You have size on D and up front, pretty good goaltending, and several guys who can (almost) score and are owed some puck luck. You defended us well, but were waylaid by one talented, but out of control player, who shall remain Seneless, and by a couple of other bonehead penalties. I'll be surprised if you don't move up into the middle of the pack and earn home ice in the Octofinals.
Just remember to start your streak after the New Year
I'm just as happy we've won 2 straight as anybody.. our gripe is that, like you said, maybe we'll go on a run and finish mid-bottom standings... we're sick of that.. we shouldn't be happy with that anymore.
Getting a point against a very good NU team (#8 in the country), not a awful way to finish the 1st half. 2-0-1 in the last three. Will be tough at Denver, but hey, who knows.
