Let's be honest, they outplayed UNH and looked like a better team, had a lot of good chances early (not great but a fair amount of good chances they just failed to execute). Cotton had the gamewinner on his stick and muffed it.
What a sad athletic department. Before and after this game we get Learn to Fly and hear Addazio talk about all his draft picks he couldn't win with. FIRE EVERYONE.
Without Hustko Cotton tries to do too much on his own and then he can't get to the net where he is best. York tried to win the game in the first period, by the time they got to midway through the third they were almost out of gas. The last 10 minutes was all UNH, you could feel it coming, good goal, nothing Knight could do.
College hockey has changed even since then. A lot (probably most now) of schools don't abide by the old gentleman's agreement. Newsflash: this happens all the time in college football and basketball. It's become an accepted part of recruiting. This idea that selling your school as a better option for a kid and a kid wanting to go to that school is somehow a bad thing is insane. People need to get over the whole verbal commitment process. It means very little these days. In the end all of these kids are making decisions based on what they think is best for them and that's all that matters.
But that was only because he couldn't get into UNH!
Plus they were released (after signing) cause the coach they committed to play for was fired.
Also, Cav has accomplished very little at UConn so I think I know who was largely responsible for winning titles.
Cavanaugh canít even seem to find a way to recruit a roster at Yukon without stocking 25% of it from Russia and Slovakia. That current roster is the biggest disgrace Iíve seen in this league in the last 20+ years.
Not to mention one of his initial rosters included Evan Richardson who was a BC refugee. Yea heís a real crackpot recruiter over there in CT!
Let me know when he does anything noteworthy without Jerry York.
Major penalty to Cotton with 4 minutes to go...this team takes penalties at really bad times. With that said, huge win. Was not expecting that. Now gotta get some results the next couple weekends.
Big win, whew, they really needed that. Showed real resilence tonight. Need Hutsko back and Giles too. The two points is huge at this point.
Left Logan and they were down 1-0. Landed at Schipol and found out they won. A great way to start the vacation!
The radio guys were pretty vocal about the call, particularly because there wasn't a minor called on the play. (Powers never saw a BC penalty that he agreed with) The stripes went to the replay and then called a major. Pretty unusal and it was hair on fire hockey for the last 4 minutes. It seems that 5 minutes majors are much more common this year, on us and against us. Is it this a point of emphasis this year?
With those reviews they can't call a minor. It's either a major or no penalty. If it ultimately helps reduce hits to the head I'm all for it. But then I think back to the UMass game in FF and I think 3-4 were reviewed which bogged the game down. So I also understand those who want to have the plays reviewed after the game instead.
