USCHO Poll, BU Game Notes; Quick A Star

Minimal news out there today.

The USCHO poll is out.  UMass lost votes to some of the teams that made a big splash this weekend (Union, Quinnipiac, UNO) and comes in at de facto #30.

The game notes for Friday’s game against BU are up on UMassathletics.  Looks like someone came up with a name for the Syner/Wellman/Marcou top line.  The SWarM line.  Not bad.  Now let’s see how long Toot keeps them together. 😉

Jon Quick was named the NHL’s Second Star of the week for his three win performance last week.  Quick has played every game so far this season.  What goaltender controversy in LA?

Niagara will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first NCAA berth when UMass visits Dwyer Arena next month.  I with I could be there for the game since I haven’t been to Niagara yet, but I just can’t justify a trip that long for only one night of hockey.  Ideally in the future it’d be great if UMass did some kind of swing out that way with games against NU and Canisius so I could cross off two arenas at once.
