UNB Falls To UdeM 5-1

The University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds suffered their worst conference loss in 5 years to the day (since a 7-3 loss to Acadia on January 20th, 2007) tonight, 5-1, in Moncton. It was UNB's first loss in 13 games against UdeM. Scoring for UNB was Jonathan Harty, who briefly tied the game at 1 with a shorthanded goal in the first period. Moncton would score shortly after on a power play and never looked back. Shots were 35-27 for UNB.

UNB looks to rebound tomorrow night when they take on UPEI at the AUC.

David Kilfoil has all of the details here.

Worst loss of the season? I would say it was their worst loss in the past 4 years.

hahaha oh my word that webcast was atrocious. French guys don't know how to run a camera and follow the play. It's a pretty tough concept...

The webcast was better than UNB's play....that was bad.

Hope they bounce back tomorrow night!

Corcoran is a better forward than defenseman.

The camera work was bad, he must not know there is a score line at the top of the screen.

Frustrating to have a strong shift, get lots of chances then see a goal on the counter attack and UNB running around in their own end.

Tomorrow is their game-in-hand game vs ACD and SMU, so a win would increase their lead to three before they and upstart Dal come to visit next week.

Note that Hunter Tremblay scored his eighth goal of the season and had a team leading five of their 23 shots in a game in Rochester Friday night.

This team seems to be lacking that killer instinct that they always had. You had the feeling that they just wouldn't come back last night. Once again, they finish with more shots on goal, but its mainly perimeter play and not much for quality chances at all. Last couple of years, you would have confidence in a come back in a tough building like the Levesque Arena, but they seem to lack leadership. Clendenning?
The defense gives up too many odd man rushes that smart teams take advantage of, like the X series a few years ago, when UNB would create perimeter pressure only to see the other team catch the defense with a stretch pass.
Need the defense to stay at home and more foot soldiers
willing to pay the price in the corners. And get that useless Macdougall kid out of the lineup! He is slow, soft and offers little hope for his wingers! Your blind if you can't see it!!!

I ain't blind, but I can see it. He is a 5'th line centre playing on the third line, at best! Brutal!
Time to get serious coach!

They had better regroup tonight. They need to win against UPEI something they haven't been able to do lately!
I don't believe Clendenning will be back this year.

Apparently Clendenning has been skating with the team recently. But they need to worry about the injuries from last night - Carroll, Denny, LaCosta, Bailey, and atleast one other player was banged up. Where was Kidd last night? Is he injured again?

No, they need to worry about UPEI, they have lot's of depth, and can't control injuries. Part of the game folks. Need to win tonite.

UNB has also lost the last game they have played against Moncton/SMU/St. FX/UPEI/Acadia...

I can see it Dale! I can see it .

Is Lacosta banged up?

very brutal web cast, very frustrating, i agree OMG. Yes lots of pressure and chances that did not go their way. The D are holding the puck too long on transition and break outs slowing forwards down. The pp needs to be more patient move puck and take BETTER shots from point. BIG comeback tonite.

Loser.

You know what else I "loved" about the Moncton webcast last night, the way they showed only their video highlights from a National Championship game they didn't win. God I hate that team.

jeancl said...

And Tremblay has scored three short handed goals.

The big question: Can UNB win without having a disaster like the year before pushing them on?
The big challenge: Play hockey now!

Where WAS kidd last night?
they sure missed him..
I hope the injury isn't too bad...

Squirrel H8TR said...

and let the fan bombing commence...what nastiness can the anonymous bombers leave tonight? Can David Kilfoil ward off all evil attempts to downplay UNB hockey? Can UNB Bruins fan make some head way as the voice of reason...again...again? We will just have to wait and see. This is better than a Tommies game, for obvious reasons, impress me!!

There should be a like button not because I hate the team but the people who ride on their coat tails

UNB Bruins Fan said...

No sugar coating this one tonight...brutal performance for the first half of the game, and not just from the goaltenders. It looked like the Washington Generals out there.

Valiant comeback though considering the guys who were out of the lineup...but they aren't going anywhere without Fullerton back full strength. They probably went a month last year without giving up 8 goals. I will say, Salituro looked pretty good out there.
