What happened to Monday!?

Well, everything is good in the land of Wildcat Nation but there was just no way for me to compile a post yesterday so I've saved it for today.

Here's your Wildcat Hockey Tuesday.

If you've been following the post-game commentary you'll see that there seems to be an agreement that Saturday's Battle for the RiverStone Cup was showing all the signs of a Wildcat team ready for the stretch run. Six scorers. Six multiple point getters. Bobby Butler and Kevin Kapstad putting together impressive scoring streaks of eight games, twelve points and nine games, eleven points respectively. You can't really get any better than the Hockey East Online's, Hockey East Weekly Top Performers and their Career Firsts/Milestones/Who's Hot as you scroll down their weekly release.

While we were settling our intrastate dispute concerning hockey superiority in the Granite State, the rest of Hockey East was at work on league pecking order. Vermont edged ahead by a point, bumping our Wildcats to fourth, by splitting the weekend with first place Northeastern. This could make the final weekend series for our 'Cats, both of our 'Cats, critical, if we should perform similarly over the stretch. BU also moved ahead but in doing so took a game in hand. Hopefully the home-and-away series with the Terriers this weekend will see some more changes at the top of the standings.

And how about The UNH Men's Hockey Blog CPR Gear T-Shirt Giveaway!? Let's have a hand for CPR Gear! I expect we'll be hearing from the loyal and outspoken winners soon and I can only say that I hope this is just the beginning of many giveaways brought to you by The UNH Men's Hockey Blog in partnership with great companies like CPR Gear.

To finish up, some weighty news. Joe Charlebois' status is expected to be reevaluated today. I'll post here should any information be released today. Wishing you a favorable outcome, Joe.

That's all for now!

Go 'Cats!
