Conference back in action in two weeks after some thanksgiving tourneys coming up.
    I think this weekend (I know it's still early!) showed that the Conference may be a 3-team and not a 5-team race (Salve, Nichols and UNE). Endicott really had a stinker of a weekend. Again, this is only through the stream, but they looked uninspired, at best, through both games. Salve played lights out both nights, quickness that Endicott couldn't answer and a toughness that may have cost them in PIMs. They do need to get that in check, teams with good special teams could exploit that.

    I only caught part of the Nichols/Becker game before I headed over to the Alfond for UNE/Curry (man, I gotta get a life!) and Becker seemed to show a little spunk.

    I agree with the UNE Special Teams, they have been executing well on PP and SH, as Curry found out this weekend. Curry had a lot of O-zone time but got very little accomplished. They appeared to be disorganized, many times getting frustrated with not getting quality shots. UNE Defense blocked a ton of shots all night.

    This weekend began to tell us more about this conference.

    This weekend may be the start of some separation between the top teams with Endicott first to slip. Looking forward to seeing how everyone does out of conference during the next week. Looks like Nichols has the best opportunity in the Wisconsin - Stevens Point Tournament. Would be big for the conference if they could win out west.

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    Happy Thanksgiving to all those in College Hockey around the country. As we take a day off to enjoy our families, friends and the wonderful bounty this great country offers, let us also be grateful to all of the young men and women who are taking this game we love to new levels. Best if luck to those teams who are engaged in games this weekend. I would specifically like to wish the Bison of Nichols the best of luck out west. Make the CCC proud!

    Becker is in dire need of a complete change, the losing culture has been allowed to continue year after year.

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    Big Weekend in the CCC to end the first half of the season. UNE visits Nichols on Friday and then hosts Endicott on Saturday. Salve should coast on Friday at Becker (but this could be a "trap" game for them) and then they host Nichols on Saturday. Curry needs to show some life against WNEU and Wentworth to stay close to the top teams.

    It will be interesting to see how the 0-2 weekend out west (against some excellent college hockey teams) impacts how they finish out the first half. My bet, they come out of the locker room on fire Friday against UNE. I hope the Nor'easters are ready for some iron!

    Good call! Looks like Nichols wasn't on fire right out of the locker room but after falling behind 1 0 came back strong to knock off UNE. No surprises elsewhere. Still looks like three or four really good teams without anyone being dominant.

    Well, Endicott really asserted itself last night at UNE. The first period was really good, back and forth with lots of chances for both teams. I actually thought that UNE had the advantage in play, besides a 2-1 advantage on the score board. But, man, I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the Endicott locker room and hear what RJ said to his team! They came out of the locker room loaded for bear. They absolutely dominated UNE in every zone, something we haven't seen, at least at the Forum, in quite a while.

    There was a real edge to the Endicott game last night. This is the first time I had seen them live, but it was a marked difference from what I saw in the few streams of the games that I had the chance to view. In some of those games, they seemed almost to be just going through the motions. Last night, they played with a real purpose. If they can keep that edge over the rest of the year, they will be tough to beat.

    Nichols lost a tough one to Salve, and the rest of league was as expected.

    The surprise of the night, IMO, was former CCC member Suffolk beating Norwich, at Norwich!

    Endicott v. Plymouth State on Tuesday and Salve's big weekend series at Adrian should all be exciting games to see.

    Salve really played well this weekend with the exception of about 10 minutes of the 2nd period Saturday night. Took a few bad penalties and Nichols made it hurt. Salve just looks like they are starting to put it together. Still a young team with 21 players on the roster that are freshman and sophomores. Nichols is very good beating UNE the night before. As you mention endicott is loaded with talent and look like they put it together last night. Curry took care of business and as i said earlier they will give teams all they can handle as the year moves forward. Donít sleep when you play the Colonels. Plymouth/Endicott, Salve/Adrian, and Curry/UMass Boston should be three non conference games for the CCC to make noise. Especially the two games out in Michigan for Salve. Enjoy The week and weekend cause finals are starting nup and we will have a Li/title time off till the Christmas tourneys.

    It was not a good weekend for UNE and they may be the spark that brings Endicott back to life. Salve looked tough but it looks like a couple third period penalties by Nichol's freshman made a big difference. Nichols seemed to have taken control on the second but couldn't stay out of the box. The Salve PP is very impressive. Still looks like a four team race after the break.

    The team that stayed out of the box seemed like the better team Saturday in Newport. salve took some penalties in the 2nd period and Nichols stated to control the game. same happened to Nichols in the 3rd when they took some penalties and salve took over the game. Salve was the better team in the 1st period when virtually nothing was called and the refs let them bang with each other. Big weekend for the CCC to continue to make a name for itself. Curry vs. #4 UMass Boston, Endicott vs. #13 Plymouth St. and salve travelling out west to play two games with #7 Adrian. Then when they come back from Christmas you will have a bunch more to watch (Salve-Pathfinder Classic, Endicott in Northfield bank, UNE in Middlebury Classic). Fun times ahead.

    Endicott rolls over Plymouth on Thursday, Curry knocks off #4 UMass Boston last night, Wentworth & WNEU all getting wins out of conference this week. The only loss was #5 Salve losing to #7 Adrian. Salve outshot Adrain 40-26. Looked like they played well and had some quality scoring chances just couldnít finish last night. The two of them play again today.

    Salve can't go 0 for 9 on the PP and expect to win.

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    The second half of the season is just around the corner and the first half went pretty much as expected. The top 5 teams are where they should be and the bottom is where they were expected to be. Curry showed some life after some rough games early. Wentworth is still a wild card for the conference, better not take a shift off against them, they could burn a top team.

    Anyone know of any mid season additions to teams? I noticed that some teams in other conferences have added depth.

    Some another thread, does the CCC have any responsibility for the debacle out at Adrian with Salve? I know the kid from Salve took a beathing, but he did engage in "fighting". Are there any suspensions forthcoming?

    Happy New Year, all, and on to the second half of the season.

    Salve player will lose a game per NCAA fighting penalty. Itís unfortunate he was literally pulled from the pile and was getting punched at. Was trying to protect himself. Not much more he could do. The suspensions should come from the NCHA or Adrain For their player who was the instigator of the entire event. Havenít seen any additional suspensions but i guess we will see once they play. As far as the referees??? I hope they have lost games??

    Donít get your hopes up. The NCHA already made their position known by giving the offending Adrian player a Player of the Week award...

    LOL. Really donít think anything will happen, just making the statement that its the school or leagues responsibility. What goes around usually comes around.

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    Not much activity here! I wonder if we've become complacent about the conference? There have been some pretty good games in the conference this year, but last night was not a great example. I had the chance to watch the UNE/Becker and the Curry/Endicott games. Neither game was one that the teams would put a bow around, but Curry pulled off a mild upset by beating Endicott at home. Endicott looked (while I watched flipping back and forth between games) really flat. Curry is going to be "there" at the end, I think. It really seems as though teams take them too lightly. I am glad UNE got them earlier in the season.

    What can be done about schools that don't stream their games. Given the completion for players, it doesn't seem to make sense that a school would not use the stream as a recruiting tool. WNEU and Wentworth don't seem to stream their games. I was also surprised that Suffolk (NEHC) wasn't streaming their games. How can a school be serious about their programs if they don't stream?

    Anyway, the last three weekends of the season will be very interesting on the Biddeford Campus. UNE has home and home against Endicott, Nichols and a single game the last Saturday of the regular season against Salve. I wonder what UNE did to p*** off the conference scheduler?

    I hope everyone hunkers down this weekend, stays safe, all of the teams traveling this Saturday make it home in time for the Pats/KC game!
