Foster's Return: UNH 2 - NU 3 Final

First Period underway.

Early play controlled by the 'Cats.

But a defensive lapse and an odd-man rush results in a 1-0 Northeastern lead at 1:43 of the first.

And they've got... nothing. UNH going on its second powerplay with less than five minutes to play in the first. UNH out-shooting NU 15-8 and now four-on-four with Kapstad and Campanale going within seconds of each other with a diving to NU after what sounded like a horrible call on Kapstad.

Northeastern takes a third dangerous hit and gets called for the second time on it - the penalties are racking up now.
End of first.

So, what do those reading think of the YouTube 720p HD?

Have you voted in the new poll?

What's on your mind?

Has anyone tried Or an opponent's service?

Start of second.

Wildcat Powerplay - 4-on-3 with van Riemsdyk due out of the box @ 3:44 of the second.

Just can't beat Thiessen.

ANOTHER dangerous hit by the Huskies and van Riemsdyk has had enough - but the play ends up as a Northeastern powerplay and ultimately a 5-on-3 as Charlebois goes to the box.

Paul Thompson will go for goaltender interference just after the 5-on-3 pk and van Riemsdyk is out for 10 with NU's Guzior.

Just under ten minutes to play in the second.

Foster has been spectacular in this period, really keeping them in it.

Even-strength - 8:27 to go in the period.

The guys just can't generate anything significant offensively - something has got to give - and Dries called for boarding.

Penalty over but yet another failed rush up ice.

They just announced that there have been 99 minutes in penalties in the first two games between these two teams and there are already 60 minutes in this game - for the grand total of 159 penalty minutes with the third period to play.

DeSimone has gone for cross-checking (officially roughing) and NU's Silva has taken two calls to put the 'Cats on the powerplay to get close to closing out the second period.

End of Second.

A Wildcat Men's Hockey Team that can't score!? And can't put a complete game together on the road. I'm speechless.

Beginning of the Third.



Assist to Joe Charlebois.

Up and down hockey - surprisingly no penalties.

Ginand stuffs it short side after shaking Kessel down low. 9:04 into the third.

Come on guys! Just score some goals!

No puck possession... a complete lack of puck control.

McCloud keeps it on the 2-on-1 rush and beats Foster. 2:15 to play.

VAN RIEMSDYK SCORES with the extra attacker. 54 seconds to play.

from Leblanc and Pollastrone.

That's game.

Too little, too late.

Coach Umile audio after the game from Hockey East Online.

Go 'Cats!
