    Well we had our chances Swayman up to the task. Felt we were outplayed a lot this weekend and will have to find that 60 min game going forward. That said...itís all good! Onto Vermont...

    UNH came from two behind in the first meeting and Maine came from behind by a pair last night. Yesterday, was as much a Maine push as it was a UNH lapse.

    This is the type of stuff that happens between two evenly matched opponents - and it could absolutely happen again tonight...
    Iím well aware that there is another team on the ice....and I didnít expect a UNH romp tonight by any means. Is what it is; think they learned a lot this weekend. 3 points out of Maine is a good result!

    I was really impressed by the crowd tonight; nearly a full house like the good ole days. I thought that Vela's third star of the game was well deserved; best that I have seen him play. I did not think that the game had much flow, with constant broken plays in both directions, and a lot of jamming around both nets. I thought that both goalies played really well, with the edge to Swayman, as he saw a lot more rubber. It appears that UVM has risen from the dead, taking home three points from Providence this weekend. The Gutt now seems a bit more daunting next weekend than it did to me 30 hours ago. Thanks for the ticket, e.cat. As I was hanging out near the ticket windows, a lot of single tickets were being given away; no scalping, yet?

    Thanks for a good evening at the Whitt, it was fun. Hopefully will be back next year!

    Providence outshot UVM, 81-40, on the weekend, managing just two goals in two games.

    The Stefanos Lekkas effect is a real thing. I did not see UVM this weekend, but I've seen them a couple times live and a few times on TV. UNH is just better. UVM was dismal here in CO, but they split with CC because Lekkas was unbelievable. On a better team he would be not only a Hobey candidate, but perhaps a favorite - he's been that good. He had one recent stretch where he gave up 15 (25% of his season total) in three games, but he's back to his old self the last four.

    My prediction is UNH will win one game next weekend and Lekkas will steal the other...

    Re: UNH Wildcats 2018-2019: Souza the Opportunity or Louza the Opportunity

    This weekend was a nice reminder of what used to be between UNH and UMaine, and a taunting tease at what it could be again, if the two programs can continue to progress up the HE and D-1 ladders. When Gildon buried that wrister (geez, what's up with the offense off of the O-zone faceoffs, guys? That's not a UNH "thing"! ) to cut the lead to one late, watching from home here in the wilds of Effingwoods, it felt like The Whitt was rumbling with seismic activity, just begging for an equalizer.

    That it didn't come - and UMaine salted it away - almost doesn't matter. Watching MS7 behind the bench down the stretch, just pulling out all the stops, and listening to Patrick Foley explaining to the NESN audience about letting your best guys get out there and be creative … it just felt like a nice throwback to the Really Good Ol' Days. And as a reminder, this was the Border War between two teams at the bottom of the HE playoff seedings. Remember when it used to be between two teams further up the same ladder, and these games were for more than playoff positioning? For our newbies, this was a taste of what could be, and for us old-timers, it was a slight reminder of what things used to be like, and a precursor of what might be again in the future, on a bigger scale, hopefully for UNH … and just ever slightly less so for the old enemy from Orono.

    Re: UNH Wildcats 2018-2019: Souza the Opportunity or Louza the Opportunity

    Want to echo what Chuck and others said about the weekend; the 'Whitt was alive and we were treated to two hard hitting games. UNH fans need to know that our coaching staff is pulling out all the stops to find talent to continue what is going on this season...which in itself has been extremely encouraging! Heard that asst. coach Jeff G is heading out for a 10 day trip to Europe to recruit.. It's more than clear we are indeed on the right path and have a HC who's up to the task and willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

    UVM will be another great test and Dan's right...they have a for real goal tender in Lekkas and they are riding some good hockey right now with their PC weekend. Going to be a wild race to the finish in HE!!!!

    Hearing Souza talk to the Friends of UNH hockey last night was very refreshing. He isn't as stiff and guarded as Umile used to be. He didn't talk about bounces of the puck and other ways of skirting the issues. He was blunt that Maine out played UNH last night was tougher on the boards and hungrier in general and that the team knows it.

    He didn't say it in these words BUT essentially said on Monday it is "on to Vermont" with a tough week of practice to prepare.

    I am more impressed by Souza than I have been. Now if the recruiting can just get over the hump.

    Kudos to the women's team as they swept UMaine Black Bears today winning 3-2. Heard the game was 'quite chippy' with 'fisticuffs'. Good for them!

    Haven't seen a clear definition of what a cupcake is but I know the Patriots are not a cupcake.

    I don't remember seeing a University of Maine table setup in the Whitt lobby during "the good 'ol days"

    #SuperBowlHalftime sucked worse than the game itself!

    Apparently this was the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history but the greatest margin of victory for all the Pats wins.

    Nor do I assume that Maine has their cheerleaders skate on the ice anymore with a "University of No Hardware" banner. I was in Orono for that game and one of my friends wrote a letter the following week to the Maine AD asking if the taunt was the official University of Maine position on their rivalry with UNH. He wrote a letter of apology to not only my friend but to Marty Scarano as well.

    Now, this weekend UNH will travel to Burlington for two games at UVM. I was there several years ago when the student section started chanting FU (both words) New Hampshire. It forced the AD and, I believe, the university president to sit in the student section, babysitting their children. I'm assuming that won't be required this time around.

    Let's be clear on why Saturday was a sell out. Kudos to the student section for responding when the ME fans began their victory chant.
    I will not be out cheered in my own building.
