  1. Providence Basketball won today and plays the same time as Hockey. Will the Hockey game sell out and how loud will the Mack contigent be?

  3. Tom – I was watching that as well. I know PC folks were worried about ticket sales with their hoops team at MSG. That takes priority over the majority of people on campus, so the longer that PC is in the hoops tourney, the less likely big crowds will be.

  5. MCWarrior – No update to speak of, but I would be surprised if he didn’t play. He was able to play through it on Friday, and wanted to play through it on Sunday but he was held out.

  7. I was happy to see the Mack crowd as last weekend progressed and especially pleased to see the team rush the student section after the game.

  9. If we can make the Garden I think we need to really just punch them in the mouth. Get on them early. We need to win game 1 too. I can’t see us winning two in a row.

  10. Brad – it’s been different players at different times, I think. Earlier in the year, Delia was huge for them. More recently Vogler has been excellent. Petti and Foget, along with the Babcock line have been great recently.

  11. Western – 100% he does. I’ve said it a million times, you don’t just forget how to play the position. He struggled down the stretch, but so did the entire team. Let’s not forget that the team in general has played much better recently here. Vogler was the first to admit that last week.

  12. I’ve heard people say that when you have two goalies, you don’t have any. I disagree. I think a healthy competition there is good, and makes both guys better. Believe me, I’m sure the competition for playing time helped make Vogler better over the course of this season.

  13. He’s handled it excellently. Just watch. He’s banging the boards on every save, he was one of the first ones over to Vogler this past weekend after the wins (and the loss), as well as charging down to the student section after the win.

  14. Brad – Next season? No. I think there is potential for someone like Seney to get pressure to sign after his junior year, but this year I would be somewhat surprised.

  15. There’s a possibility LeBlanc signs, if Ottawa doesn’t want to lose him to free agency. He’s played better recently. Seney I think NJD is OK with him developing in college. As for UFAs, maybe Hampus Gustafsson? Biega is going to start to get attention next year too, I would think. Especially with more offensive totals.

  16. The only other early departure possibility I was thinking of this year is Hampus. I really hope not. He came along late in the season.

  17. I think LeBlanc and Gustafsson are the two most likely as far as early departures. But I would be slightly surprised with both. All depends on how much NHL teams value that size.

  18. UNH loses top scorer, Maine loses best D man. We should be well positioned for next year if the team can keep up its confidence.

  19. I think MC should be improved next year, with so many underclassmen. UNH should be worse, UVM should be worse. UConn, we just don’t know and a lot depends on what happens with Letunov and Thompson, if they sign. UMass is going to take time to rebuild.

  20. who is Providence’s most underrated player? Like the guy we need to watch that you wouldn’t notice looking at their stats? Anyone?
