No disrespect to either club, but CBS Sports will air anything these days, huh? Unless you’re an alum or friend / family of a player, who’s watching this game? I can’t imagine there are lines on a game like this. Cmo?
Edit: Just realized this isn’t televised on CBS Sports.
Doesn’t feel like we’re very far from being able to compete with the middle tier of HE. Hopefully we can turn a corner next year and get closer to being a .500 team in the league. We’re further along at this point than I thought we’d be.
As HC continues to improve as a member of Hockey East, the recruiting class continue to improve as well. They've had some impact players in the past few seasons such as Antonia Matzka (3rd Team All-Hockey East and the team's only selection to the "All-Star" teams). It is worth noting that one of our best players was only a 3rd Team all-star. Quite arguably our best player all season, goalie Jada Brenon (whose only flaw in net might actually not be a flaw--her shorter height) was left off of the list. She led the league in saves this year (shows you where our defense and shot-blocking is). Speaking of, I was quite impressed in both the Maine series and the loss to UNH at our shot blocking and general defensive play in zone. We have shown more drive and tenacity than in previous years.
