    MUSKEGON, Michigan –It got dicey in the final minutes, but one night after dropping their first game of the season, the Dubuque Fighting Saints made sure that didn’t happen again, holding off the Muskegon Lumberjacks for a 5-3 win on the road at the L.C. Walker Arena Friday night. The victory was the Fighting Saints tenth of the season, as Dubuque improved to 10-0-1 on the year. The Fighting Saints currently have 21 points, tops in the Eastern Conference.

  • Look at it this way it’s one loss closer to getting rid of this bum. If they have to go 1-33 this year for that to happen so be it we will be better off in the long run.

    What other UMO team has ever lost to the #1 ranked team in the country in this close of a game?

        You know what he is talking about.
        UMO Is a nickname, almost like BC… would you tells someone that there is no BC, there is only a Boston College?

        and it is sad that Maine hockey can beat only Army and the headlines read” Maine improves, but loses”

        If anyone knows Jerry York’s style, he would know that York had Maine right where he wanted them for the entire night. York wants a game of cat an mouse and to strike during the PP.  Maien did not outplay BC, BC kept Maine outside and incapable of generating many great chances in close.

        And somehow, even though BC was sometimes kept away from Ouelette, BC still scored from over 50 feet away, more than once.

        Picky, picky, picky. And from a UNH alum, no doubt.

      Careful. Some people lose their minds when they see ‘UMO’.

    Better Team play tonight,Ouellette played with confidence(finally)and the Freshman Line did well(Shore-Lomberg-Merchant)along with fellow freshman Riley & Swavely & Hutton…hopefully a confidence builder for game vs UNH on Sunday….still a sour taste at losing to BC and losing again at HOME.

    They did lose but they played one of the best games this season tonight.

    • Maine hockey should never be satisfied with moral victories! Bottom line look at the record this is a horrible hockey team and there is only one man to blame and thats head coach Tim Whitehead. He took over a great college hockey power and now they have become a joke. Moral victories? Hope the players don’t feel pumped up because they lost a close hockey game……

      It was more enjoyable to watch.  In the end, though, it was a loss at the Alfond and it makes the team 1-7.  Anyone who is satisfied and takes some sort of moral victory in the fact that we played 2 periods of good hockey, but can overlook the fact that we lost 4-2, is just feeding into the Whitehead mentality that has destroyed this program. 

      Whitehead needs to go.  We need to begin rebuilding.

  • Maine gets  called yet again for a to many men on the ice penalty when pulling the goalie for the second time already this season. To many men on the ice and giving up short handed goals has become the norm under Tim Whitehead.  Not to mention losing. Coach Whitehead should give his entire paycheck to charity because he is stealing money and getting paid to run this wonce proud program right into the ground. Stevie you know what needs to be done why wait until the end of the season to give Timmy the boot?

    HIRE JIMMY!

    FIRE TIMMY!

    MAINE HOCKEY
    Shawn and Grant Built it
    Tim Whitehead Ruined it

      that was friggin embarassing!!trying to tie and get a penalty for GAME OVER.

    • Anonymous

      Yep. How many ‘too many men’ penalties has Maine taken over the last 6-8 years? Often more than once in a game?

      That’s some fine bench coaching right there.

  • Old Bear

    Walsh would have torn the Hanson apart on that call and then we have Timmy that does NOTHING!!!!

    I give credit to Joey Diamond for being able to focus. His family lives in Long Beach, Long Island, NY.  http://www.nytimes.com/video/2012/11/02/nyregion/100000001880340/long-beach-after-sandy.html
    The place is a disaster – the entire 2 mile boardwalk is destroyed, 3 homes burned just yesterday due to a car fire, most still do not have any power, and almost all the homes had 4 ft of water in their basements.  I wonder if there’s anything Maine fans can do?
    I know there are other athletes/hockey players from that region, as per earlier article….

      Friends of UME Hockey will help with the restoration. The UME Athletic Dept. should also contribute. Why not can some of those darn left-wing profs. in liberal arts who do nothing for the school or the state and help  Long Beach instead?
