Re: vs. UNH - quarterfinals

Attendance was 3,076. I understand that the tickets were $ 35 so that probably kept some people away plus if there are any students around they have to pay also. Here is a link to the write up on the athletic site: https://umassathletics.com/news/2019/3/15/no-3-2-hockey-storms-back-for-2ot-game-1-w...

Re: First weekend playoff tickets on sale

Ticket sales appear to be a little slow right now...with the students on break, they might be lucky to get 6K there which will be a huge disappointment. I was really hoping for a sell out - looking at the available seats left, last years playoff crowds might be bigger. Hopefully the hockey crowd is...

Re: First weekend playoff tickets on sale

Question for all who know about the NCAAs. I will be in Mass for the first rounds of the NCAAs. Assuming UMASS gets in and goes to Manchester or Providence then I will be going. Are these tix hard to come by? I've never gone to the hockey NCAAs. Do you have to buy both days or can you get individua...

Re: First weekend playoff tickets on sale

Generally speaking, Hockey East quarterfinal games rarely sell out. Spring break often falls on the weekend they are played. They are typically not included in season ticket packages for other conference schools, so some season ticket holders and sponsors who get tickets as a perk don’t buy QF ticke...

Re: 2018-2019 Season

For the Quarterfinal round, is the only broadcast through FloHockey? Any chance that NESN would pick up a broadcast or is it aired exclusively online through FloHockey? Thanks. In past years, NESN has picked up one quarterfinal game from Hockey East. I guess it depends on the matchup and availabili...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

I know the locals had a conniption fit when Lombardi had a giant U painted on the water tower atop of campus. Wonder if they will have a similar fit when the giant Power U is on the bubble.

I personally don’t care what is painted on the bubble. I just want to see it actually installed.

Re: 2019 Season

It isn’t UMass’ job to help Merrimack College sell tickets. Promoting the UMass football team seems like a higher priority to UMass Athletics than accommodating a handful of fans who are willing to pay $28 each to bask in the wonder that is Lawler. It is unfortunate that the timing doesn’t work, but...

Re: 2018-2019 Season

According to CHN’s pairwise probability matrix, UMass is a 100% lock to make the NCAAs at this point - 48% chance they get the at-large bid and a 52% chance they do it by winning the Hockey East tournament championship.

Re: UMass Athletics and Stubhub

Agreed on the scalper part... I think it's clear that they are getting in on the action. With that said, if UMass is doing this, as you suggest, that would be very shady. I highly doubt this is happening , but if it was I'd be extremely disappointed in our administration. I agree with you. It’s ext...

UMass Athletics and Stubhub

During the BU hockey game, I noticed significant blocks of empty seats in the general public areas of the “sold out” Mullins Center. For the previous sellout against Quinnipiac (before the Stubhub deal), the arena was sold out and jam packed. I thought about why those sellouts were so different and ...

I have found ESPN+ to be a good value. Generally, you can have a 7 day free trial. Been binging on college sports.

Don’t need espn plus to watch this game. It is on espn3.

Re: Games 23 & 24 (2018-2019) @Maine

UMass fans are generally considered to be the worst by other Hockey East fan bases Why? Fans from other schools in past years complained about having bottles thrown at them, trash thrown at them, jackets stolen, etc. Those issues may be changing for the better.

Re: Games 23 & 24 (2018-2019) @Maine

I honestly thought Maine played really well these games. They also have a really good rink, at least from a fan perspective. Hard to see why they’ve seemed to fallen a bit behind in her recruiting races. They also have the nicest fans in hockey east. One guy was giving us the usual garbage you get,...

Re: Bracketology time :)

Attendance is a factor in how the NCAA seeds the ice hockey tournament. If Providence qualifies for the tournament, they will be sent to Providence even though they aren’t the hosts. If that’s the case, UMass would be sent to Manchvegas to prop up attendance at a site littered with midwestern or wes...

And UMass remains at #2 this week, still getting 1st place votes as well.
Are you just stating the news on the 2018-2019 season? Please clarify.

By the way, have you attended a hockey game at Mullins this season? Feel free to come on out. Plenty of room on the “wagon.” :)
