Okay - So I drove directly past the Domes to watch some decent hockey last night.
During Period 1, Norwich's back check was so intense on a very narrow rink, that Hobart didn't have more than a handful of sustained possessions in the Cadet's zone. The last two periods were much more evenly played, considering the amount of energy the Cadets expended during the first. Both goals were pure hustle goals in which the Norwich player either out-muscled or out-skated a Hobart defender.
Norwich has speed and skill on all four lines, but the goalie was suspect at times. Hobart's 44 has All-American skills. These two teams are certainly NCAA worthy.
