This season I've taken, more or less, an "it will all be by wearendhockey

worked out in time" approach to this team. But the play I'm seeing since that horrific end to the first half is getting a little tiresome.

No chemistry on offense at all lately. Fewer than 3 goals 4 of the last 5 games (all losses). 3 straight home losses. Bad goals given up by the goaltenders. We've looked terribly confused out there for most of the last two games which tells me the team was poorly prepared for this series.

UM and Minn are mediocre teams, and teams we should handle at home. The fact is we're not playing particularly well at home at all. Our only sweep is against RPI, a team that has lost nearly 3/4 of its games.

After the BC win, this team was knocking on the door of a #1 seed. If the tournament started today they'd be lucky to be one of the 16 teams in. They've never been a program that makes a run to the NCAAs in the stretch or the conference tournament, so if they want a shot at accomplishing the only thing left that matter they have yet to accomplish they better start figuring a few things out.
