    An absolutely horrendous penalty in the offensive zone to take by Howell.

    Yeah, they're getting embarrassed because Huska is starting.

    I sense sarcasm, but for real, out of the remaining schedule rob should have gotten this game

    Maybe Cavanaugh was symbolically trying to usher in his new era, but unsurprisingly failed.

    10 minutes left and 39-13 shots on goal. I sense Cavanaugh is having difficulty with motivation.

    Yale just hit the freaking pipe.

    Hey Pratt, Average is still happening and elite hasn't showed up yet.
    Not happy with today's performance. No reason to lose this game

    Yale wins with very hard work, not elite recruits.

    Yale out hustled,out skated,out hit, and out shot Uconn. If it wasn't for Huska, it could have been 7-0. Yale goalie let in 2 bad goals.It might be the worst effort of the year.

    Thompson should have taken the day off. Nyberg looked shaky in his debut.

    Didn't see it, but that major penalty sounds like it turned the game squarely in Yale's favor. There's never a reason to take a major against the boards in your own zone - completely inexcusable.

    I'm thinking I should have posted something on the basketball site, maybe we would have landed Diallo.

    It was worse...they were in the offensive zone.

    UConn shot themselves in the foot with a major penalty against QU and did it again versus Yale. But today they got absolutely dominated.

    So disappointing. I don't get why they save their worst performances for home. I had been looking forward to this game for a while and all I can say is they looked disinterested for most of the game. Yale beat us to almost every loose puck.

    We were never playing at the level you need to play at to beat an established program like Yale. Just a mystery why we seemed so unprepared.

    Why this team comes out flat for home games is head scratching

    Uconn saw that Yale was under .500, and thought they could just show up and go through the motions, which they did, and win, which they didn't.

    Entitled kids. The coach is screwing up in managing these over-inflated egos who have the privilege to play here.

    Because UConn played that badly. Yale is very vulnerable in the net. They are weak at goalie right now. Alex Lyon (Yale goalie last year) probably would have shut out this UConn effort.

    Can't say I disagree. I don't know much about Yale, but I do know we were putrid.
