Dal destroys V-Reds

There's no sugar coating this one. The Tigers delivered a beating to the V-Reds that they haven't felt in some time at Dalhousie. The win-streak vs. Dalhousie ends at 14 games. Final score was 6-3 for the Tigers. Derek Yeomans started the game, was replaced, and eventually returned in goal for UNB. Bobby Nadeau stopped an amazing 52 of 55 shots to secure the win for the Tigers. For those keeping tabs, UNB got goals from Bailey, Culligan, and Hepditch.

Dalhousie had a productive weekend, beating the top 2 teams in the conference on home ice and scoring 12 goals in the process. UNB is limping home after its worst road trip in a very long time. The AUS standings are getting interesting as the top 6 teams are separated by a mere 5 points.

UNB has one more game before the break, this Friday vs. UdeM.

if i was a UNB fan, or close to the team, or actually on the team, i would be super pissed that you would outshoot Dal 55-26, and lose 6-3, i would take a long look at your goalies long term to decide if they are the two that will win you a national title

Watched the game on SSN and I don't think it was entirely the goalies at fault. The team played poorly overall, especially the defense. A lot of weak shots from the perimeter, lack of hustle and very poor passing. To Dal's credit, they did a great job of blocking shots and generally clogging up the middle of the ice.
Harty - get your skates sharpened!!

Goaltending is huge issue that needs addressed. No national championship at home this season with 2 of the worse goalies in CIS.

Two of the worse goalies in the CIS?? You mean the ones with identical .919 save percentages and 1.67 and 1.93 GAA...who both have National Championship rings?? Those guys?

UNB has 2 of the top goalies in the CIS. Every goalie has the occaisional off night. Are UNB's goalies not allowed to have an off night once in a while? 55 shots and goal...couldn't have been that bad a game; hats off to Nadeau, great game.

It just drives me nuts when people say UNB's goalies are aweful; when in reality they are two of the best in the league.

And last night was only the 3rd time in the last two years UNB has given up at least 5 goals in a game....I'm sure if they had two of the worst goalies in the league that wouldn't be the case.

Also Hunter got zero points. That makes getting 50 almost impossible now.

I am most surprised that they gave up leads in both games. Against Acadia they were up 1-0 right away and then 0-3 on the PP. They should have been up 2-0 at least. The game is tied going into the 3rd and you'd expect UNB to win the period and the game - not.

Against Dal they were up 2-1, then give up two goals before the period is done and 2 more in the first half of the second. Almost 20 different UNB players were on the ice for those goals. So no single line was 'off'.

A win over UdeM puts them solidly in first with 22pts then a break to get everyone healthy.

They have to improve on 1-11 PP for the weekend. Which now sits at .198

However, not bad for a team missing four(4) starters: Lee, Gallant, Shutron and Procyshen.

Looks like it was a tough weekend all around.
#5 UPEI loses both games (DAL then ACD).
X loses to STU.
#1 Alberta splits with #8 UMan.
Guelph almost upsets UQTR and #3 McGill, losing in OT for both games.
#4 Western loses to RMC (can't believe this - RMCs first win of the season)

The PP is actually 1 for its last 24 over the last couple weeks I believe...

actually 5 Regulars including Daine Todd.

Does anyone know why Steve Pearce was in the lineup againts at least Acadia? is their another defensive Injury?

when will we see gallant, lee and Procyshen back .. procyshen hasnt played all year

David Kilfoil said...

Pearce was in and on the back end because they moved Spencer Corcoran up to forward with Jeff Lee out of the lineup.

Gardiner MacDougall had planned to play Corcoran up front this year since they were so deep at defence ... sort of the opposite of when Dustin Friesen changed from forward to defence at UNB.

But then all those injuries happened, so Corcoran has been playing mostly defence. The loss of Jeff Lee means UNB is missing a power forward, and Spencer can play the physical forward game and skates pretty well ...
