  1. boy its hard to shake off that thumping harvard gave union, even despite the thrashing of dartmouth, even despite being in first place – two things make me say this: kupsky giving up two late goals to dartmouth, and kupsky starting that game instead of mighty joe young – joe young has only had one chance to prove himself and did look good against harvard, whereas kupsky has shown little – interesting to see if kupsky continues to struggle, will bennett decide to stick with him and go down with the ship, or will joe young get another shot in this critical stretch run, or beyond – i say if kupsky struggles next weekend you go with joe – also curious who will be next year’s starter – the sum total of the rest of the season will obviously bare that out – but i don’t see union going far with kupsky in net, while young might be better than him and we just don’t know that yet – i assume i should trust bennett’s decision from what he sees in practice each week but in game results should speak louder – no?

    • UC’s No. 1 goalie is out, would be foolish to think either replacement can take them far. I thought Kupsky has improved since his first start for Sak and I think he looked pretty good against the Green.

    • I was at the Harvard Game. The first Harvard goal should have been credited to Taylor who was asleep. If you take away that and the two empty neters, we have a 3-2 Harvard win. Harvard deserved the win, they have a great team but it was closer than the score and I thought we played well.

      • i was there too and either union decided to wake up in the third period, or harvard went into a defensive shell – but i must kindly disagree, i think harvard seemed lightning fast and pinpoint accurate – and as such downright scary – 3 goals that quick is not only unacceptable but almost impossible to overcome – its hard to say that the real union showed up in the third, as desperation changes a teams play – wonder why bennett refused the media afterwards?

  2. Before he was hurt, Alex’s numbers put him second best in the ECAC. Without him going forward, we are in deep doo-doo. We have to trust Bennett’s judgement as to which of our backups to start.
