Our preview of UConn
After a nice longer break, we have a Tuesday game at UConn!
Fun fact, since UConn joined Hockey East, we are 8-0 vs. them, outscoring them 40-8 in those 8 games.
Our preview of UConn
Is the UConn feed still pay-per-view?
Practice lines today in Hartford are the similar to what we've seen recently against BC.
Not sure what Jozy has done to earn his continued relegation but I'm not a fan of it.
I'd be willing to force feed Filipe time on the line with 8 & 9. Drop 23 to the 4th line and put Jozefek with 21 & 28. The fun really begins when Hawkins and Pecararo are eligible. If 17 hasn't gotten going by then he could be a bottom line guy.
Don't hold your breath with Pecararo. Time will tell, but I've heard some rumblings about his situation not looking so bright.
As for Pecararo: I'll believe him when I see him. I'm told by someone, who should know, that he has the kind hockey skills that will help us. Practicing with the team for the past year + should have buffed the rust off his game. I have to wonder if he has matured enough to understand what he has to do to earn a place on a D1 team. If he is good to go, I'll be interested to know where he will fit in. With 8 & 9 ??
This is why we don't start Ryan Ruck. And instead of trying to get 4 scoring lines maybe we should try to get one and go from there. We haven't been able to score since BU.
Not a good 1st. Yikes.
3 g on 10 sog.. not a good night for goalie thus far.. of course, offense gotta give him some support the other end. ouch!
Possibly the worst game the team has played so far this season. Can't hit the net, too many drop passes/errant passes.
that was ugly.
Congrats Gaudette for point #100 and Sikura on Hockey East goal #1 this year.
That's all the positives.
It sounded like Huska stole the game in the second and third periods. I say it “sounded” , because my feed was so broken that i was unable to see any of the five goals and found Greg Madden’s radio call to be easier on my ears and far more rational.
Tough on Lowell, but it doesn’t do a thing for the sting :>}

Huska played a strong game but I'd stop short of saying that he stole the show (he was the announced third star). The offense has just seemed discombobulated ever since the bu beatdowns. Opponents have been clogging the middle and NU doesn't seem to have an answer for it. Passing hasn't been as precise as it was earlier in the year, which means pucks aren't getting to open men or are just being turned over. When a play does go right, pucks seem to take crazy bounces or goaltenders come up big. Just have to play your way out of it.
It's still only one-third of the way through but the pairwise is already looking scary.

Recap of last night. It's not pretty
