Miami leads 3-1 after two periods. Bemidji definitely has the skill and moxie to come back.

Feel free to insert a generic Cinderella reference here.

    there better be an article coming talking about umd. 1 vs 8 this pass weekend and no coverage?

      This is the Hockey East Blog so please complain somewhere else

    • HuskyHockey1986

      Why would you look for UMD info in the Hockey East section. Has a Hockey East school even faced Duluth this year? Are you jeolous and wish the WCHA was as awesome (or stable) as Hockey East? Or are you just complaining that USCHO sucks?

  • bronxbomberz41

    where’s BBear94 (or whatever) complaining about firing tim whitehead?  Oh wait….

    • BBear94

      Nice try, David Hendrickson. 

      This blog is terrible, as always.  Why don’t you come over to the bangordailynews, bronxbomerz41, and we can really get into it with, I don’t know, 30-40 other regular bloggers who all say:  FIRE TIM WHITEHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Keep it up…along with others as you and the rest see the REAL Maine Hockey Team and Program…Whitehead has ruined Maine Hockey and needs to be shown the door when the season ends so the NEW COACH can start the rebuilding process…and bring back the Old Time Maine Hockey Attitude.

    you guys don’t know nothing about the XX and OO of hockey.  nobody that does would think the maine win over new hampshire was a good one and maine is playign well.  reality check: 1.  giving up a shorthanded goal on a 5-3 advantage; they got 2 soft goals including the winner,. 2.  4 straigth wins?  ok over let’s see clarkson massachusetts vermont new hampshire. all teams not even in the top 38 pairwise.  beating other bottom feeders means nothing. this team stinks

    • GoBlue

      Anyone that knows anything (or nothing as you put it) about the X’s and O’s of hockey wouldn’t have ECAC teams ranked ever.  But lookie there..Colgate, Cornell, and Yale all in the last poll – so even the ‘experts’ get things wrong.

      You can discount Maine’s opponents all you want, but Mass is hot right now…just beat the well ranked yale and cornell teams and Maine put them in their place at the FCC. 

      • Bob49

        not sure what you mean there Goblue when first you say ecac teams no good, but then you congratulate maine for beating umass team that has just 3 wins in last 9 games, 2 over ecac teams. 

        my point of last post being these writers here just really not knowledgable about hockey.  they focus on the score, polls, blah blah blah.  watch that maine team on the ice yikes they sure need some work.  won’t get no softies against next 6 games no way jose

    • After Further Review

      At least they are wins.  As a UNH fan, I am completely disgusted with losses to Brown, Harvard, Northeastern (before they were playing well), and Maine.  Oh yeah and a tie with the doormat, Vermont!  I’m sure I have missed some quality losses, but it’s absolutely horrible watching this team play.

    • Stefan Rowe5

      apparently you don’t know a whole lot about hockey. You mention a couple of the goals scored by maine to be soft, yes they were but how do you think teams win? look for instance at game 7 of the stanley cup finals shorthanded patrice bergeron scored an extremely soft goal on luongo, game 5 brad marchand does the same scored a soft goal. Thats how teams win you work hard, you fight to get those chances and if the goalie lets in a soft goal the team deserved it cause of the work they did. The ot winner by flynn was a result of extreme hard work by that line, so to say they don’t deserve that goal or that it was soft is just numb, because every team in hockey whether it be the ahl, nhl, college hockey, qhl, wqhl, and so on… has scored and won games because of so called soft goals. Yes the teams they have beaten lately have been on the weaker side, but that is how teams build momentum, and gain confidence. They are playing very well rightnow. You apparently don’t know squat about hockey.

    Dave, thanks for the article. You’ve given the UMaine “faithful” something to good (and accurate; no over-generalizations or chest-thumping) to read/cheer about, and you’ve given the nay-sayers something more to complain about (not that they need an excuse to *itch).

    Please keep up the good work.

    • Dave Hendrickson

      Thank you.

    I know people feel very nostalgic about outdoor hockey but I don’t share their enthusiasm. I went  to the BU-BC game at Fenway two years ago and the truth is you don’t get a very good view of the game from most of the seats. I am glad I went once for the experience. But given the poor sight lines, once was plenty.

    • After Further Review

      I agree.  I didn’t go to Fenway to see UNH/Maine for that very reason.  I hit the Frozen Fours every year and was at Ford Field a couple years ago.  Not quite Fenway, also not outside, but horrible for watching hockey.  We got “great” seats as we go every year, 7 rows up on the blue line in the bleachers they brought in just for the hockey games.  Problem was, they were not steep enough, so every time the puck went over center ice, I had to watch it on the big screen.  I might as well have stayed home and watched ESPN.  Hockey needs to stay in arenas made for hockey, other wise there are very few good seats.  It’s kind of tough looking through the boards!

  • 94eagle

    Not interested in any game at fenway.  sightlines are terrible.  I still can’t believe BC let MC back into that game on Sunday.  I think BC blew at least 34 scoring opps
