So apparently mostly only single seats available for tomorrow night.

Hopefully the impending snow keeps the mongoloids from coming up from hartford

No, I'm not a Hartford mongoloid because the snow will not keep me away.

Limited # of Hartford Mongoloids here, but they made a fair amount of noise when they scored.

anyone have any idea why the first of what should've been 4 fitz goals was waved off? or was it just hockey east being hockey east?

not a bad save by demko w the game on the line

kudos to the person manning the music for playing wrecking ball after sanford totaled the goalie

Whistle blew first - ref must have lost sight of the puck. Bad whistle. Lots of bad calls tonight - I was mystified by a couple of the calls on UConn. BC also had a clear off-side that wasn't called - led to our first goal, IIRC.

Unfortunately, some local Mongoloids showed up at the start of the second, sitting in the row behind us. One of them was leaning over the rail to high-five the UConn players.

oh i know the whistle blew first, i'm just wondering why. awfully quick.

anyway these past 4 games + other results have put them in a good position for a first round bye. big games w pc & uvm in a couple of weeks, all at home

santini hasn't looked the same since coming back. linell got hurt and doherty took time up front.

powerplay has looked much better in the new year, 22%

No idea on the whistle. Refs seemed clueless last night (and I don't bash them every game. Except maybe for Benedetto.).

Santini looks several steps behind, I think it's going to take him a couple more weeks. OTOH, Matheson has really cut down on the number of baffling boneheaded plays.

Demko is playing exceptionally well, but the team still has some trouble on D - everyone starts to transition up ice without being sure that we've got the puck out of the zone first. As we know, it's painfully obvious that we don't have a ton of offensive threats. I think we can make NCAA's, but barring a Cornell-esque defensive performance, this team isn't making the Frozen Four. The next couple of years will be interesting if we don't have a lot of defections.

I heard a comment last night that Cav did not part BC on good terms, and he wouldn't be looking to return when Jerry finally hangs them up.

Apparently Mike Mottau is joining Cav's staff. Has he been involved in coaching since he retired?

Nice to have a guy with a Hobey on the staff.

for some reason i thought he was rumored for the unpaid assistant spot that went to mcinnnis but looking at the mottau's hockey db page he played 13-14 with the panthers for a couple of games so the timing doesn't match up as mcinnnis was hired in fall of 2013
