    Maine has been consistent, if you ask me... They don't score, but the 'tending has been All-World nearly every time out.

    That's going to be a difficult formula to maintain over a long season, but so far, so good.

    If you adjust for the quality of the team its really not close. I mean Jimmy Howard went 944 for an entire season or whatever it was but that was with a half dozen All Americans in front of him

    The quality of the teams when Jimmy played was better also. Either way Swayman has been fantastic, the rest of the team is up and down. Good win though, another tonight and it would be the best weekend of Maine Hockey in long time. It will get fans in the seats

    Swayman has been fantastic save that first game. Tough for me to consider a better goaltender year than Howard in 03/04. The 3 OT hockey east championship is a vivid memory where Howard was unreal. Could not ask much more out of Howard that season. Also, Doyle was a good goalie as well. But Howard was much better if you review the stats. Too bad that team couldnít have scored in the final. Hopefully Swayman continues and we have this argument next April.

    And of course Maine only has two games at the Alfond after tonight between now and the final day of January. I donít want to spoil a wonderful night with complaining but it is disappointing.

    I was fortunate enough to go last night and it was like stepping back in time. Itís the most full Iíve seen the Alfond in quite a while and honestly Maine looked like a team from 15 or 20 years ago. Swayman was okay, but honestly he let in an absolute howler and didnít seem like he made that many tough saves. A UNH fan on their thread said it didnít seem like he he had to make any.

    This is a random question and I canít believe Iím asking it: is hockey eastís overall weaknesss going to kill any chance Maine has of making the NCAA tourney? Itís shocking how low all the teams are right now.

    That goal was weak by swayman, if he was a few inches to his right it could have been a shutout.

    In my opinion it's too early to judge HE, there are 5 in the top 20 poll anyway, for what's that worth right now.

    Unfortunately I donít think the polls help with pairwise.

    Just struggled again to start third. Wow this was unexpected. Evidently URI has worst rated defense in the CAA. Hard to believe Fagnano would struggle with them.

    Yeah, this season's version of Hockey East is the weakest I've ever seen.

    Frank Doyle was terrific, IMO. He just had the misfortune of playing behind Jimmy.

    Tie game. This would be good time for defense to show up.

    We shall see how Fagnano does in two minute drill. At least they only need field goal to tie.

    Some comeback. There's still a glimmer of hope for the NCAA's.
