Jan 27 – 29, 2012, schedule

A busy schedule of 8 NESCAC games spread out over 3 days. All 8 games are rematches and chances to reverse first-round outcomes.

Bowdoin (and Colby) are taking the weekend off so Amherst has the chance to put some distance between itself and fellow first place holder Bowdoin with a sweep on the road of Trinity and Wesleyan and Williams has the chance to vault over Bowdoin into second place with a sweep of Tufts and Conn College at home. Similarly, Tufts has the chance to catch fourth place Middlebury with wins on the road at Middlebury and Williams. Conversely, Middlebury has the chance to put behind it a disastrous string of 4 games that included 3 shut-out losses by getting back on track at Kenyon with wins over Conn College and Tufts.

Some interesting comments by Middlebury Coach Bill Beaney following the Panthers’ 5-0 loss to Norwich this past Tuesday on what ails the Panthers. Here’s one of Beaney’s key observations: “We’ve just been playing very undisciplined hockey and it shows. We’re not good enough not to play within our framework and until they understand that, we’ll struggle with it.”

Decent Internet-based coverage of all but 1 of the 8 games.
