    Curry game was also a very good game. Plenty of chances and a lot of good goaltending. Ketola made a save on Fleurant that was as good as I’ve ever seen. Going post to post to get a blocker on an empty net chance. White for Curry was great, scoring their goal. Bloom hit a cross bar.

    To me all players involved left it out on the ice, blocking shots, taking Hits and dishing them out.

    Very good games.

    I would not count out 2 possible CCC NCAA participants. UMB losss today 4-0 was huge. The new playoff fore at hurts salve as they have one less win due to the quarterfinal BYE.

    Next Saturday night in Newport should be a great game. Salve 2-1 vs. UNE this season.
    I should have said that I watched the games on the stream. They never seem to be as fast on the stream! It is also harder to see the close in passing around the net from the camera at center ice!

    I did notice the loss by UMB, but I figured they their PWR would give them a lock for a bid. Maybe I don't understand this new system for selecting the teams.

    BTW, the Curry feed cut out with six minutes left in the game! Man, that was a long six minutes!

    Gonna be tough for salve to get at large. Would’ve beeen better if Hobart lost. Mash be too tough to catch UMB, but salve beating Endicott three times, Endicott tying Norwich twice, UMB losing to Skidmore and Curry, Salve beating both of them, you would think they need to be in consideration if they don’t win the league?? Win Saturday and then there is nothing to worry about. Could even get a home contest depending on the other results.

    Think about the CCC schedule mix. The top clubs played each other more times than the "weaker" teams.

    This results in a circular firing squad, which hurts the PWR. It's now math, not opinions (Rankings) that decide who gets in.

    Yeah that’s why i said long shot at best. It’s unfortunate cause I’ve said all along i’d Take the top 3-4 teams in the CCC against anyone. They can play as evidence by some of their quality wins this season. Salve, UNE, Curry, Endicott and even Nichols have some very good non-conference wins.. Two conference mess-ups by Salve and they could be 20-4-2 at worst, but that happens!!

    J hope the CCC moves away from some teams playing each other three times in the regular season; I don't think the "draw" they used this year is ideal. I'd rather they all played each other twice in the regular season and used the three other games to schedule some tougher opponents. I think it would give the league more visibility and respect.

    Nice preview of salve/UNE game. Also game has been moved to URI Boss Arena, expecting big crowd. Great decision. Nice venue.

    I was wondering about the move to URI. Didn't they have to move their first round game in the NCAA's last year to a different rink? I think I remember something about the Portsmouth Abbey School had taken the ice out of their rink. Is this what happened?

    Unfortunately, I will be tied up with HS hockey here in Maine on Saturday. Hopefully I can pull in the stream on my phone.

    Last year they played the quarterfinal game of the NCAA’s vs. Nichols at URI.
    It was due to the Abbey not having enough capacity. Only holds like 500+. Expecting a big turnout.

    The Abbey has ice, they just wanted to support what they feel will be a bigger crowd. Personally I would have liked if they had stayed at the Abbey, its a bit smaller ice surface, which in my Opinion is beneficial against players like Fluerent and Bloom.

    Last year they moved to URI because the Abbey didn't have ice anymore. Abbey breaks down the Ice the first week of March once the School and Newport Youth Hockey's seasons are done.

    Salve is a very good team on the big ice surface. They have not lost up at UNE in the last two years, won at Norwich, won once in Lake Placid and played pretty well in the 2nd game (lol), Skidmore, etc... salve has guys that can skate and create so I think they don't mind the change. also if they thought it would be an issue they wouldn't have made the change and kept it at the Abby.

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    I am really sorry I had to miss Saturday's game, I tried to catch it on the stream, but my wifi coverage wasn't strong enough. I did catch the first 4 goals of the game (1 by Salve and 3 for UNE). From what I could tell on my little phone screen, Salve looked flat. Also, not sure what happened on the butt end penalty. I really hope it was a legit call. Losing that kid had to be huge for Salve. He is a spark plug of player. The kind of player you hate on the other team, but would love to have on your team!

    I'm going to say this here, even if it is fodder for another category. I have to wonder what the losing of J&W and Suffolk meant to the CCC, and did it help the NEHC? CCC teams had to add 3 games (UNE added Endicott, Salve and Nichols) to their conference schedule that were very good teams. That had to have an impact on the PWR, didn't it? And, is it a coincidence that last year the CCC had 3 teams receive bids to the NCAAs and this year the NEHC will, possibly, receive 3 bids?

    Great Point ! I wonder if its too late for the CCC teams to change their scheduling scheme for next year, I would guess it is

    Awefull call by the linesman (not even the referee) who looked like he was 18yrs old. No butt tend watched it several times on the video online. 2 minute minor after the whistle if anything. Championship game and 18 penalties called that ridiculous. Know the situation. Emotions are high. Loss of that player was big but not sure it would’ve mattered UNE was better on satiurday.

    I was at the game and I couldn't figure out the Major at all. Makes no sense

    I few days ago I voiced my displeasure with the CCC's new scheduling where there is a draw to decide which three conference teams each school plays. I'm not aware of in-conference scheduling ever being done this way. I hope they get rid of that, play each other twice and have each school schedule three additional non=conference games. That would keep the scheduling inside the conference consistent and allow each school to schedule out of conference schools to build their SOS and expose the conference to a wider audience.

    You are correct. Made no sense at all. The PA announcer didn’t even know as he announced it as a 5 minute penalty with nothing else. Watching the play on video a shot from the point on the Salve PP was deflected out of the rink. The UNE player went over to the Salve player as the puck was out of play and the Salve player jabbed at him with his top hand pushing him away. That was it. No butt end, if he wanted to call anything he could’ve called a 2 minute minor for something after the whistle. Linesman came in right away between them and they both went to the face off circle. No chirping, no extra curricular activities. The linesman then went over to the referee as everyone was setting up for the face off. After a few seconds that same lines man went over to the Salve player and led him to the penalty box then removed him from the box and off the ice. People i was sitting with just were saying what happened, no one saw anything out of the ordinary. There were more egregious incidents in scums all night long that nothing happened (rightfully so). Salve kid is their top scorer and a skill kid, not someone involved in that type of stuff. For them to toss him was totally wrong. Championship game!! 18 penalties called in this game, way more than any other game that night. Totally loss the flow of the game and made it about them. Feel bad for the salve player as he was like what just happened. Salve coach Klann seemed very upset given the score and circumstance. Not a good job by the guys in stripes!

    Re: CCC Hockey Coaches Poll

    Tonight's game will be an interesting one because both teams seem to some scoring punch. Trinity had to work overtime to get to this game. I watched the OT in that NESCAC Final and that puck left Corriveau's stick with .3 second left on the clock. Talk about a clutch play! You could see Amherst lose some steam with about 20 secs left. They were about a half stride late to each loose puck. I think that speaks to Trinity's will.

    UNE came out early an put Salve behind the 8-ball in the first period. I think the score was 5-1 UNE when Eruzione was called for the questionable butt end (What I infer from others on this thread, I didn't see it!), so I don't know how much of an effect it had on the game.

    Their common opponents (Bowdoin, Colby and St A's) don't give a lot of information. Nice to see a Maine boy (Greason) do well in hockey! Best of luck to all in the NCAAs, these games today should all be good.

    Anyone thinking there'll be a few surprises today?

    Michaud (former UMaine commit) to Corriveau (former SLU player) with no time left in the OT as you say. Talk about your go-to players, it was incredible. They were cycling like pros and you just knew it was coming, Michaud finds Corriveau for a one timer in the high slot.

    The only game I’m expecting a team to win is Hobart/Plymouth state. In my opinion the other 3 are basically toss ups.
