V-Reds Wrap Up Regular Season Tonight Vs. Dalhousie

Fresh off their 3rd loss of the year, and first to a CIS opponent, the V-Reds will look to establish a new AUS points record tonight by going for win 27 against the Dalhousie Tigers. Expect a lot young students at the game as the spill-over from the great crowd at District 18 night is expected to attend.

The Tigers were mauled by the Panthers last night by a score of 7-2, and are currently battling for their playoff lives. Dalhousie clings to the last playoff spot with a slim 1 point lead over Udem in the AUS standings. UNB can once again expect a team to throw everything it has at them.

This will mark Tigers rookie sensation Benjamin Breault's first visit to the Aitken Centre. Breault joined the team after Christmas and has been an offensive catalyst for the Tigers, scoring 13 points in 13 games, including 8 goals. By contrast the team is led in scoring by Patrick Sweeney with 19 pts in 25 games.

UNB has won all 3 previous meetings this season by a combined score of 16-3.

The game can be seen on Rogers TV, News-Cast.com ($5.95), or you can follow updates on Twitter.

Is the game not on CHSR? Do you guys know if they're covering the playoffs?]

As David mentioned in another post, there have been some technical problems doing the simulcast on CHSR and Rogers together, so they did CHSR last night and will do Rogers tonight (No CHSR). They haven't confirmed all playoff dates, but CHSR website says they'll broadcast many of the games. I believe it was announced that the first two games of round 2 would happen Thursday and Friday, the 25th and 26th.

I see that STU are out of the play-offs and they have closed their fan site down to any fan comments. It seems that the site has fans tired of The coach and AD being one and the same. The Gleaner has started to compare Eagles to Smith and report that some fans feel that 8 years of losing is enough. They have lost their fan base. There are comments that the male and female coaches have a country club atmosphere and want no part of change, except to the new rink. My comment stems from the fact that the battle of the hill is not an attractive fan draw any more.

Bad form on the part of STUTommies.com In this society, free speech is such a critical component and to stifle comment because they want to protect the management of the Tommmies is reprehensible. People have to a right to express their opinion (within boundaries of good taste, for sure) and to stifle that, that's enough for me as a Tommies fan never to visit that site again. Censorship is no way to run a fan site. Shame on them.

First, our apologies to unbhockeyfans.com for the comments above.

To the anonymous poster above, thank you and we hope you keep your word.

To the anonymous poster above, I think if you know the calibre of the people involved with STUTommies.com, it wasn't about "protecting" the management of the Tommies. Without speaking directly for them, I can assure you they are as frustrated as most fans with the direction of the program.
My observation is that the site had been going in circles, with a vehement anti-Eagles faction continuing to make the same points about Eagles, the money the school sinks into the program, and so on, and the same people wading in to defend. It gets tiring to hear it and read it ad nauseum.
It does happen to be their site, they maintain it and monitor it and can therefore control the content in the same way that we at the Gleaner monitor comments on stories for good taste on our website.
