Verrier with the laser 'Cats up 4-2

Way to hang tough and secure the win. Blackburn looked good centering that line with Kelleher and Crookshank. Enjoy the break see you at Army!
Cannot get smug just because we are above 0.500 by one game, as we already blew 2 points last night that we really needed. Army will be the toughest of the five games, I think, as they are/were on top of Atlantic Hockey. Bentley split with them at Tate Arena this weekend. Happy holidays everyone, while our team practices hard on soft Whitt ice.

As a side note....the 500-600 fans that were there (including myself and the Mrs.) saw a heckuva game tonight. Better than watching the Patriots collapse.
Meanwhile, with 8 HEA points, we are in 9th place, behind Maine, Yukon, and BC with 10 points. But, we have 4 games in hand over Maine and 2 games in hand over Yukon. :-)

Let's Go SouzaCats!
The story of this season remains to be written, and it'll be written based on how the second half plays out.
The first half has been a tough read … some big wins (UMass, BC) and some regrettable losses (Bentley, 'Mack) to balance that out. Some late wins, and some late game mistakes to give away points (thinking mostly of that UMaine game). All arguably classic signs of a promising young team and a new coach trying to figure things out together. If UNH won the two games we all think they shouldn't have lost, and lost the two games we might not have expected them to win, then we're still looking at a one game over .500 team.
Better than last season's slow start, and we even got a W or two from the back-up goalie we're still waiting on to emerge and take a run at the (deserved) two-year starter. At least in that respect … plus ca change, plus c'est le meme chose. It would be nice to see the program finish the season strong, post a winning record, and maybe make some post-season noise to cap it off. Maybe enough to convince our best player to stick around for his senior season - pushing our luck, where many didn't think he'd be here as a junior.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and the happiest of holidays to all of my pals on USCHO.

From the HEA recap:
- With the win, the Wildcats are now 5-1-0 at home.
- UNH is 5-2-0 this season after a loss.
- Taylor is now 3-0-0, with tonight being his second win versus Merrimack.
- Tonight was Stevenson's first multi-point game.
- Kelleher leads the team with three game-winning goals.
I will not be out cheered in my own building.
