    Yale fans: how likely is this game to sell out? I didn't get my ticket from the Mullins box office, so would have to buy it when I get to the Whale...

    If you want to be safe you can order your tix, here's the office contact info:

    Phone #: 203.432.1400
    Fax #: 203.432.7772
    E-mail: athletic.tickets@yale.edu

    But, I'd be surprised if it sold out.

    I wouldn't call the ticket office this week. The 126th edition of "The Game" is taking place this Saturday in New Haven and the phones lines are pretty busy. There are plenty of tickets for the UMass game. You can save yourself $5 by getting tickets at the door Thursday night.

    Yeah I do not see a Thursday night game selling out. You should not have a problem getting tickets at the door.

    Standing room is the best view and best bet at the Whale IMHO.

    Allright, thanks Yale folk! I'll take my chances with getting tickets at the door.

    Hope you guys beat Harvard on Saturday!

    This game makes me nervous because there are a lot of uncertains in my mind. For one, how will UMass play against a strong non-conference opponent, especially on the road. Yale's goaltending situation is also in question for me as I don't know how good this team will be without Alec Richards, but with Backman and others they are obviously still dangerous. Should be a great game.

    I think that this is going to be a great game. Umass has James Marcou and Ortiz and Yale has Backman and arcabello. The goalies are going to put on a good show. I hope they sell this game out!!!!!!!!

    I am not sure what to expect of this Yale team against a quality opponent from a stronger conference. Last year they lost to UNO 8-3 in a game that Yale actually had more shots and then they were dominated by UVM in the NCAA's.

    UMass has been probably the most inconsistent team in college hockey over the last few seasons. They have had games where they would beat a top ranked team like BU or BC, only to lose to Merrimack the following game. There is uncertainties on both sides. Like I said before, Alec Richards is gone, so I think that could work to UMass' favor, but they can't let players like Arcobello and Backman stick around, or else they will be in trouble. How have the replacement goalies looked so far?

    Our current goalies have been shaky:
    Ryan Rondeau (junior): came into the year as the starter, looked shaky against RPI, decent against Union, and strong against Princeton

    Nick Maricic (frosh): made first start against Cornell and looked decent, followed it up with a shaky start against Colgate

    Billy Blase (senior): hasn't seen any action, starting goalie during his sophomore year

    IMO, either Blase or Rondeau will get the start after Maricic looked weak in the last game.

    I would assume Rondeau would get the start since he has played the most games, and being a junior he has some time in past years. I doubt you would see Blase because UMass is #11 right now and playing fairly well, and playing a tough non-conference opponent for your first action of the year might be a bad idea. Dainton will most likely be in net for the Minutemen.

    Well, Yale started a freshman who had yet to play a game, Maricic, against the #3 team in the nation (Cornell) that also happened to be a conference game in a situation where Yale really needed a win after a poor performance the previous week. I wouldn't be surprised to see Blase.

    What a huge win for UMass tonight, 4-3 in OT.

    Great game from a somewhat objective viewer. These have to be two of the fastest teams in the nation and the pace of the game never slowed. Fun to watch. Fair crowd for a top 10 matchup but everyone in the building was into the game and for as much as the place exploded when Yale scored it became deflated when the Minutemen ended it with a minute to go in OT. Great game.
