    This is a big game for this team tonight. If they want to separate themselves form the lower 1/3 of the league they need to sweep teams like UMass.

    Do you think Huska or Nichols tonight?

    I'm going to say Huska.

    No doubt it will be huska. Night and day difference between them. Nichols has been great for the team, but he's hasn't been the same Nichols from the 14-15 season before his hip surgery.

    Huska shoulda started the 2nd game against ND. He needs back to back HE experience too. I know the 47 shots, but UConn can't afford to give up 5 or 6 every night against top teams like ND when Nichols is in there. We might have tied the 2nd game when the 3 period scoring started, but it was already too late. He gave up way too many thru the 5 hole.

    I've heard from fans @ ND game is that when he was a gambler, huska is solid, but gets flustered if one or two go in sloppy. After that, he'll give up a few more. That's what we saw in exhibition and against QU. If he's locked in, we see a ND and RIT result

    I'm guessing Huska tonight and 1/1 with Ohio state and maybe Nichols for home BU and huska for away BU

    2-2 with 12:00 left.

    UConn getting completely dominated the last two periods. Terrible showing.

    There are good ties and bad ties. Tonight was a terrible tie.

    As good as UConn played in the first period, they played just as bad the last two periods.

    Score 2 goals in the first 4 minutes, outshoot them 15-3 after 15 minutes, then over the next 50 minutes outshot 22-7 and outplayed. What's up with this team. No consistency whatsoever, very frustrating. They are undisaplined as well. Too many penalties.

    Man, the first 5 minutes were great. The other 55 minutes was painful to watch. OT 5 min was good, but didn't get the result UConn needed. They do need drake back. the D is way too sloppy and giving up way too many stupid penalties. 7 total. Lucky, our PK has been good as it's been (34/38). Newpower had two. I think Pratt has too much of a temper and causes dumb penalties to be a captain. I know masonius had a bad night and saw cav rip into him on the bench. They can't clear the zone and scramble around our net needs to be worked on. Too many 2nd and 3rd chances with rebounds off goalie pads.

    Sucks they tied against UMass. This needed to be an easy 2 Pts. A point is a point, but I'm not seeing a drastic enough improvement to even make 6th/7th/8th in HE.

    I keep waiting for this team to have a breakout game where they start moving down hill for a bit. Ugly ties with UMass aren't what I have in mind.
