The St. Cloud/Qunnipiac game was a snoozer. No one really made anything outstanding happen, except maybe Matthew Peca. That kid is talented. Good skater and good hands. Didn't score this game, but he has been Aside from that, no. St Cloud would have really benefited from having a player that stood out since they controlled the puck and play for most of the game and yet got beat by the short spurts that Quinnipiac mustered.
I don't concur at all with this. The UML vs. Yale game was brutal, mainly due to UML playing a 2010 Montreal/collapse around the net in their zone game. Must have blocked 40 shots. Played a passive 1-4.
By comparison, the other game, at least the first two periods, was awesome. Q was flying and St. Cloud were great puck possessors. In the end quinnipiac won just about every battle in the slot/down low, and that was the difference, well, and Hartzell -- by far
the best goaltender.
Samuels-Thomas was a beast. Stronger than every scs player he encountered, but will need to work on skating. Langlois looked about as advertised (if I recall the advertising) -- smart, skates hard, maybe NHL bottom sizer.
I thought Agostino was the best Bulldog. I missed the first period of the Yale game where apparently langeniere (sp?) must have done something (GE was the second star), but I wasn't very impressed. He was big, but meh. A friend I spoke with after seemed to like him better. Top pairing on Yale -- Fallen and someone else -- were good.
