Re: Hockey East Tournament

Yep. ECAC and AHA both reportedly cancelled. Rumors have WCHA in same boat. Hockey East probably next.

Of all the shitty ways for a season to end without UMass in the NCAAs, and as a pessimist I considered a lot of them, I never foresaw life threatening pandemic cancels entire season.

Re: Hockey East Tournament

Based on what the NBA just did, coupled with the fact Harvard and Yale backed out of the ECAC tournament, we may have watched our last college hockey game of the season. Hope I’m wrong...

Re: 2019-20 Season

It doesn't show up in the stat sheet but Kolby Vegara had a great game, especially considering he wasn't even dressing as a defenseman earlier in the season when the team was going through injuries on the blue line. To play forward, and to throw your weight around like that with good, legal checks, ...

Re: 2019-20 Season

Agreed about Leonard.

Maybe time to call up someone from the club team, even just to sit on the bench in case of emergency.

Re: 2019-20 Season

That clinches the one seed for BC. One of UConn or UMass could tie them, but BC has tie breakers over both. UConn flat out dominated the entire game. Bad luck the net got knocked off before the puck crossed the goal line early in the first, but after that UConn was objectively better. For that reaso...

Re: 2019-20 Season

BC unfortunately blew out Merrimack tonight. They’re up four points on UMass now with both teams having three games left. This weekend, four points are a must if there’s any shot of defending the regular season title. Hope BU gets some points Saturday from BC and UNH finds whatever magic they had ag...

Re: 2019-20 Season

Big, big win. Huge. Major props to Coach Carvel and the team bouncing back from such a gut wrenching loss to a team you were 2-20-1 against in the last 8 years. Speaks volumes of the mental toughness. As to Lindberg, I'm not sure. He let in a goal on the first shot. Then I believe he was late coming...

Re: 2019-20 Season

That was the second worst goal I’ve ever seen in my life. Only thing worse was the goal that tied the 2015 national championship. Add in the Kiefuk broken jaw on top of Langunov being out for the season and Chaffee also out this weekend at least. I was fully planning on driving out to Amherst tonigh...

Re: 2019-20 Season

UML was swept this weekend, bringing them down to 15 in the pairwise. Friday and Saturday are now basically must win for them if they want a shot at an at large bid. I hope the Minutemen are ready.

Re: 2019-20 Season

I’m sitting in 106 10th row. Lowell Beerworks is a five minute walk from the rink. That’s probably where I’ll be in advance with cousin who went to UML.

Also, it’s possible that BC will be alone in first by faceoff. They’re two points back with a game tonight and a game Thursday.

Good to hear. I’m going to both games next weekend as well. Hope to see a lot of you there.

Re: 2019-20 Season

Sweep was a PWR saver. Very satisfying. PC season now on life support whereas I’m back to being cautiously optimistic about the UMass season. Now a much needed break before a home and home with UML. UML has owned UMass, especially since Bazin came in. There is a true hatred in Lowell for the Minutem...

Re: The demise of Hockey East as we know it??

One thing I just thought of: CAA take over was almost a disaster for all northern schools. Once Hofstra and Northeastern cut football, they started expanding southwards with more Virginia and Georgia teams. And IIRC there was some weird membership rule where full CAA members had a say in who joined ...

Re: The demise of Hockey East as we know it??

On the one hand, agreed with Sheck though I’d say it’s more in line with when the A-10 absorbed the football only Yankee Conference to get voting rights. Didn’t the B1G pull something behind the rest of the College Hockey world’s back and no one could stop them because they were the only conference ...
