    Whenever I visit the Whitt, I cruise around the foyer the long way between the first and second periods on my way from my standing position top row next to the band to join my STH cousins in one of the empty STH seats behind the UNH bench. I like to arrive early (6:15) to watch practice, but thanks for the ticket offer, 32. I will miss Lawlor on Saturday night on my way north. Spending 3.5+ hours in traffic to attend Friday games at the Whitt is a big commitment for me; yes, I want a medal, Chuck. :-)
    Oh, wait, I just learned that this HEA bottom-feeder Friday game is on NESN, so maybe I should save my $12 and avoid driving frustration? Just kidding. :-)

    Pretty quiet on the NH front! It is a bit scary playing in a must get 3/4 points weekend. Can't leave points on the table that will most certainly be needed down the road.
    Go Cats!

    You're right ATW. Low hanging points on the table for UNH. Go grab 'em!

    SB will have his young Warriors schooled on where all the soft spots are on the ice.

    Listen, I have no bone to pick with Scott Borek. Actually, I've heard a lot of very nice things about him over the years. BUT … if we're looking at what he's accomplished behind the bench at the D-1 level, it's not exactly impressive. He took what was a top-shelf former D-1 championship program at Lake Superior State after the Jeff Jackson era, and managed to bring them down for a "soft landing" in a 5 year span of under .500 hockey. Then he arrived in Durham to replace Brian McCloskey as the lead assistant, and he gradually saw the program erode from its pinnacle down to a much more mediocre level by the time he left. Apparently he left when it became clear that he wasn't Coach Umile's preferred candidate to succeed him, so he snuck on over to Providence for the years after their D-1 title (another slow slide back from past glories), and parlayed that into the top job at Merrimack, where he's not making folks forget about Mark Dennehy, as he quickly has become the second best former UNH assistant to coach at Merrimack (behind the late Chris Serino).

    If you ask me, Borek coaching at MC and Souza (and Stewart) coaching at UNH, tells me Coach Umile knew what he was doing when he opted against turning the program over to his ranking assistant.

    Thanks Dick!!

    Bottom line these are two games that the 'Cats can and should win. Yeah it's "tough to play in Merrimack" yada yada but we can't afford to lose any points with what's coming after the break. Dig in boys and pucks to the net! GO 'CATS!!!

    I only can make the game at the Whii tonight. But, I really hope that UNH fans get the opportunity to sing the "drive home safely" chant at the end of the game on Saturday night, like in the olden days. :-)

    Anyone meeting at Libby's pre-game today?

    Sorry to say that we are in Pa. and will not see a game until the first of the year. So sticking with my 3 point prediction (hope). With that in mind is is always best to win the first game to take some of the pressure off.
    Go Cats!

    Oops, I tried to reply here a half ago, but my post vanished. Traffic was especially slow going this afternoon, so I made my way straight to the Whitt around 6 pm. But, word is that the game will not begin until after 8 pm because of mechanical problems. So, you can hang at Libby's for a while longer, but they will not let us out now that we are in. Gotta profit by selling more beer and food for the next hour?

    Looks like The Whitt is continuing to show its advancing age (hard to believe it's been 24 years now).

    Crazy, huh? Time for the upgrade, methinks.

    I can add to Chuck's Mike Radja (15/16) and Steve Saviano (17/18+18/19, when BS35+9 set up UNH for this tournament?), the following:

    Our Hemingway bros (Colin and Brett) and Josh Prudden all together in 10/11, and Steve O'Brien in 05/06.
