    Great start until Dartmouth scored two goals to take a 2-1 lead into first intermission.

    Friars came out on fire scoring 4 goals in under 8 minutes in the second for a 5-2 lead after 2...

    Third period was about managing the time and getting through the game...Big Green scored late to make it 5-3 which is how it ended

    Conway the MVP of the tourney, 2 goals in this one..

    Needed to beat both of these bad hockey teams this weekend if they wanted to make the NCAAís. Now a solid ooc series win over Miami could help them out in the PWR if Miami can pick up wins in the best conference in the country.

    That second period might be the best period of hockey PC has played since 2015 against Miami.
    I don't know if Dartmouth and Brown are "bad". Struggling? Absolutely. Dartmouth especially was better than their record indicated...

    Miami must be really tired of us.

    Brown is 52nd out of 60 in the PWR while Dartmouth is 43. Bad teams that didnít help much at all. Miami is 17th while PC is 11th so this is key especially since Miami plays in a much better conference giving them a chance to help out PC the rest of the year.

    Brown is certainly better (at least defensively) than we've been the past few seasons, though that obviously isn't saying a whole lot. Zlax is right in that we don't add much to a resume, but we're a little tougher to beat this year. And after watching us beat Dartmouth earlier in the season, I'd agree with your sentiment that Dartmouth is a struggling team with more talent than their record shows.

    Whatís the story on OíBrien at the WJC? DNP (did not dress?) last night. Iíve seen him on the ice one time and heard his name once. Itís great to play for your country but to ride the bench? The team seems to go with just two lines. Havenít been able to find player stats - time on ice, +/-, if anyone has.

    If you watched him at PC losing so much time has left him far behind mid season form he should be rounding into. Just remember how Bjorkqvist injury freshman year (and Foleyís to a lesser extent) slowed their progress freshman year


    Probably mistake for USA to take they knew he was slowed by injury and just further slowed his progress as it looks it will cost him 4 PC games

    Omaha dropped him today

    Big weekend home stint for the Friars this weekend with Miami of Ohio coming in for two games. Going to be tough to get them for another 2 I think, they've got to be tired of losing to Friars. Hopefully team is ready and plays full 60 minute game. Chance to get some valuable PWR wins.

    Good win by the Friars tonight, 4-2 over Miami of Ohio.

    Matt Koopman with his first career goal...

    Leaman playing 13 front line guys and they are all getting time on the ice, I think the team depth up front is going to be key to success rest of year. Hopefully they avoid any defense injuries because there is no depth there.

    Friars crushed Miami on shots something like 40 to 16. Miami had only 3 shots in the second period.

    Not everything was rosy, Friars gave up 2 power play goals in first period. They did score a PP goal in the second.

    Are they better without OíBrien playing? It is a conversation to have as the kid hadnít shown to be ready to play at this level

    Post Russia game has dressed for 6 of 7 and is a -2. Didnít think he had enough ice to do that poorly. For whatever reason wondering if he would have been better off staying home.

    No. Good experience anyway. He should come back healthy and a little angry and frustrated. We could definitely use him in the 2nd half.

    Tough game tonight. Miami definitely played better then night before. Take the tie and move on, better than a loss.

    Agree, take the tie and move on, kudos to Miami, they played a real good third period, and the Green kid launched a guided missile for the tying goal on a superbly executed 6 on 5.
