    Don’t worry, we often overlook much of what you write. šŸ™‚

    Watch for UAF defense to come out early and control the pace with hard nosed D. If Miami scores early on and goes up by 1 or 2 goals- UAF loses. If UAF can get the 1st goal and play pesky D like last Fri PM- we win. Bottom line, if we play like we did last Fri- we win. If we play like we did Sat against MI- we lose big.

    Wildcats look terrible Friday against BG! However, give credit to BG for moving the puck and out working the Cats all night.

    i am really disappointed in Northeastern this year. The one game I’ve been able to make it too, 5-0 win hosting providence, was a great game and made me wonder what was going on in all the other games, especially against Atlantic Hockey.

    I figure it must be injuries again, from what I understand there are already a few players who will miss the rest of the season, and how heavily we are having to rely on freshman due to injuries and early departures.

    Two 5-0 blowouts and a 3rd period collapse against Brown means no goaltending and no playoffs for Providence, again.

    Who is Todd Barton? I think you combined Jesse Todd and Chris Barton.

    lol the errors here are quite simply inexcusable for an organization on the forefront of delivering college hockey news.

    Da Costa leads the warriors in scoring with 7 goals and 9 assists in 15 games totaling 16 points.

    That Todd Barton on the other hand…he’s been doing great!!!

    The funny part is that it wasn’t just a statement made in passing but it was the basis for your entire point.

    Nice job Dave…glad to see you deleted all your mistakes to make yourself look better. Aweful article….especially with the screw ups of “Todd Barton” and DaCosta being 5th on Merrimack in scoring….sounds like you have no idea what you’re talking about and you cover HE…..maybe it’s time to move on?

  • Salvuccim

    lol, and now there’s not even mention of Merrimack…is winning the season series against Boston College and having only 1 loss amongst 3 games against BC and 2 games against BU not surprising?

    I mean I suppose Merrimack fans should be taking that as a complement….Awful article for a news outlet that I see as going downhill while Collegehockeynews is going up up up.
