    Yep, he's been in. Rennaker is listed on the lineup sheet, but isn't playing and has been replaced by Lindelow. Must have been a last-minute scratch.

    Gross period. BU ties it, and Maine can't get anything going offensively. On to the third tied 1-1.

    Somewhat true, but Maine had two chances they really should have taken that period.

    The crowd looks pretty good to me tonight and even though the number was low I thought last nightís was decent as well. Good to see some work going in to getting the crowds back.

    It sounded like they missed a 2 on goalie in 2nd. That should be a done deal.

    Last night crowd was lite, about 3/4 or less full.
    Power outages might have kept folks home. Don't know why but whatever.

    A deflection goes Maine's way, and its 2-1. They look a lot better in the third.

    BU got the late equalizer with the goalie out, and it heads to OT tied 2-2.

    A 2-2 tie ends it. Final shot count 37-25 for BU. A three point weekend.

    Not a bad outcome, three point weekend. Good penalty killing in OT.

    Swayman continues to amaze. He's the lone difference between what we have now and a typical Red W/L.

    I disagree and think itís more Maineís special teams this year. I said at one point before the season that Maine was due to have a season where they out perform their talent and maybe this is that year. The only problem I see is that if one of a few players gets hurt they will be in a tough spot.

    Is Shea hurt? I noticed on the highlights last night he appear to not hustle for a back check. Didnít look like his typical play.

    PP looks not great, PK has honesly impressed me. Its been a team effort, I'm more with Drew. Of course Swayman is the best player on the team and a big part of the success, but the team has been playing better this year, buy and large. Maybe they finally will outperform their talent level like you said.

    Mike Pomichter. Those two were supposed to be suspended for the rematch Feb 19 but Shawn and Jack both asked the conference to waive the extra penalty on both.

    I went Friday and saw team first time. A few of the freshman looked good, they should develop nicely as the season goes on. Fossier looked a little stronger and more confident. Shea seemed to have gained another gear. As a team some sloppy passes and passes to no one but that should improve. Overall some solid hockey players.

    Swayman looked like he got some coaching over summer. He kept himself in good position with patience.

    Credit Maine's penalty kill. BU came in with a very good PP percentage (forgot what it was), and was 0-12 on the weekend. The team appears to have a little more depth, but without Swayman they are probably below .500. I suspect he will leave after this season.

    I look at the shots and I kind of shake my head. Modern hockey wisdom says you canít get outshot 3-to-1 and give up 15+ shots every third period and have success.

    So my question for you guys that have actually seen them, are they kind of keeping things outside and giving up lazy easy shots? Or is Swayman totally standing on his head?

    Its a combination...all of the above. Lunch Pail team attitude, they work hard and have a will to win....something I have not seen in a Gendron team since he began(imo).

    I'd say its both. There's been a few, but not many, moments where I've said "wow, got lucky there, Swayman really bailed us out", but I think there have been a lot of lazy shots from the outside or off the wing under pressure right into the Maine script on his sweater.

    I'm not on the Kool-Aid yet, either, and I've seen them twice.

    This team has an average Red offense, which ain't good.

    Call me "negative", but I'm seeing a typical Red team that Swayman has carried on his back.

    (So far.)

    The last time Maine was ranked in the USCHO poll was the week of 11 January, 2018. The team celebrated the occasion by tying Brown that night and getting swept by Northeastern the next weekend. Will this be the day they return to the poll?

    Maine is 10th in the USCHO pairwise and 12th at CHN. Maine would play either Pedo State in Allentown (CHN) or RIT in Albany (USCHO). Albany sounds good...Maine has good history there...
