Wow. What a huge weekend, stealing a tie last night and then squeezing out a win.

This should be the team's weakest spot, before the players come together... And they're getting huge, significant non-conference results. Awesome!

Gigantic road win. Going to #13 UNH's barn and getting a win and a tie is gigantic for such a young team.

For the B1G-HEA challenge that's worth 3 points: 2 for a win +1 for on the road

First two weekends of the season after we lost our top two 1st rd nhl defencemen, huge questions in goal, a suspended top scorer, and a loss to a canadian college team, and we have 3 quality wins and a tie over 2 top 5 teams with a backup goalie in net for one of them. Sounds like for this season, I picked the wrong time to give up sniffing glue.

So let's see-

  • My final homecoming game as a senior, a 40-8 win and a field rush. No better way to go out as a student and former player. (Cool story bro)
  • Michigan beats indiana with offensive fireworks (finally). Skipped my final homecoming to watch this game and boy they didn't make me regret it.
  • Hockey starts the year 3-0-1 with two wins over ranked teams from HEA. 1-0-1 in the first B1G/HEA Challenge.
  • Party in about 30 minutes where I shall play the pong of beer and consume large amounts of alcoholic beverage. 

This weekend. I tell ya.

#6 BC over #2 Wisconsin, 9-2 - 2 pts for HE
UMass over MSU, 3-1 - 2 pts for HE
#13 UNH ties #5 Michigan, 1-1 - 1 pt for each

#15 BU over #2 Wisconsin, 7-3 - 2 pts for HE
UMass over MSU, 5-2 - 2 pts for HE
#5 Michigan over #13 UNH, 3-2 - 3 pts for B1G (bonus point for road win)

After one weekend:
Hockey East - 9
Big Ten - 4

Rough weekend for the Big Ten but it was entirely on the road so a bit understandable. Wisconsin looks to be way overrated and MSU seems to be bad. Michigan appears to be fairly legit; we scored the Big Ten's only points this weekend
