UMaine hockey seniors assist program’s turnaround heading into BC showdown

...The seniors are pleased that they are helping the team begin a turnaround that will hopefully lead to future success.

“We’ve had three tough years,” acknowledged left winger Vesey. “To help the team turn things around this year means a lot. And we’ve got a lot of hockey left to play.”

“I’m very pleased,” said center Lacroix. “We wanted to help kickstart the program and leave a good legacy. We wanted to create a reason to be remembered.”

He also said he wanted to pass along some success to the younger players so they can continue to progress the program in future years.

HUGE game tonight! I'll be there along with 4 other family members. Maine can finish anywhere from 2nd to 7th but has already clinched a home playoff spot.

They haven’t though. Fifth place is a distinct possibility which means no home games, but a first round bye.

Yeah....they have. They haven't clinched 5th place yet.

Wrong. Maine hasn’t clinched any home ice yet. Since they could finish 5th (in which they don’t host but get a bye), there is no guarantee Maine will return to Alfond in the postseason.

They HAVE clinched a home playoff spot (7th place). They have not clinched anything higher than 7th, Dumbar.

Men's Hockey Tripped Up By No. 19 Boston College

Men's Hockey Tripped Up By No. 19 Boston College

ORONO, Maine – The University of Maine men's hockey team went into Saturday night looking to get a win for its seniors in their final regular season game at home but got tripped up in the Hockey East battle with No. 19 Boston College, 5-0.

The Eagles jumped out to an early lead when Michael Karow kept the puck in the zone and found Casey Fitzgerald for a slapshot from the right point that squeaked through a screen. The Black Bears looked to equalize minutes later – and held an early edge in shots on goal – with Mitchell Fossier firing a shot off the rush but Jacob Woll made save. The visitors would make it 2-0 midway through the first period when Julius Mattila potted a rebound at the top of the crease.

Right. They have clinched no lower than 7th. But if they finish 5th, they won’t get home ice because the 5th seed earns a bye in the first round but stil goes on the road in the quarterfinals. Therefore, they have not clinched home ice advantage in the Hockey East playoffs.

It’s not that difficult to understand.
