Almost Home

After a six-game sojourn I'm sure our men will be happy to get home on Saturday to host the Providence Friars but first they have to come full circle and return to Matthews Arena to hopefully put the finishing touches on the Northeastern Huskies Friday night.

Our Wildcats have taken three of four points from the Huskies thus far but that initial victory came at a cost - an injury to starting goaltender, Brian Foster, who is still considered questionable for this weekend. Since Foster's injury the 'Cats have gone 0-3-2.

But records don't mean anything on a given night in the season - it's who wants it more and who is willing to work harder, sacrifice more and sometimes, just a good dose of luck.

So Saturday night the Friars come to town, most likely looking for their first Hockey East win but up first, our Wildcats will look for their first triumph on the road as they close out the season series versus Northeastern tomorrow night.

Bring it on home!

Go 'Cats!

I would have thought that JVR would be ripping it up this season so far.

I would have thought so too...

But this team has been severely hampered in a number of ways. When you look at the BC game he finally cut loose and put up a four-point game.

So it's there.

The bigger the game, the bigger he plays - I'm still expecting that we'll see a special season from him.
