    I wonder why they feel it’s too much pressure at Home..???? Isn’t that WHY your playing to get HOME Ice for the QF’s..????? There’s a advantage at Home……well….?????????? It use to be that Alfond Arena was the Ace in the hole,plus SW….but how things and times have CHANGED.

    “hope to continue strong road play”????? How about taking the bull by the horns and taking control of your own destiny by playing to the level that you are capable of and leaving it all on the ice for two 60 minute games! There are no easy games for anyone in college hockey this year, and this team needs to realize that and “show up” for each and every game with the mentality that this is their last unless they play excuse free hockey and come off the ice knowing they gave it everything they had!
    This TEAM is capable of winning every game they play the rest of this season to Tampa if they would develop the mentality that they cannot lose, and they will not lose, and they will find a way to win each and every game! GO BLUE!!!!

    Unreal.   You have the top skill player on the team saying he doesn’t like the pressure of playing at home…..says they have to put on a show.    No, just some quality wins on a consistent basis at home would be nice.   I can only imagine what Walsh would say after reading comment like that.

    So Larry, is Maine really “fighting” for a home ice berth, if there is too much pressure to play at home?   As captain mentioned, we aren’t asking you to juggle while carrying the puck..  Just win at home.  No show, no fancy moves, put the puck on the net, grind hard, fight for rebounds, and score more than the other team.

    The other thing I don’t quite understand is the not working hard.  If you play poorly in the first period, why does it take until the Larry interview in Friday to realize you didn’t work hard the night you lost?  Isn’t that a first intermission resolution?  “Hey guys, we look bad out there. Let’s step it up.”  Solved.  I don’t wait until I am in the ditch to correct my car when I am driving.  Tim, if you need me to stop by the locker room to give an assessment of the performance in real time, I am happy to.
