Game 2-4-72: Men's Ice Hockey vs. Robert Morris

Well, this was one ugly game, to say the least.  It started with the public address announcer referring to the visitors as the "Robert Morris Colonels" - and pronouncing "Colonels" as it is spelled. Strike one. . Attendance was paltry compared to the packed student crowd we had last night. Strike two. And there was a lot of nasty stuff going on on the ice as well. . Jordan Sims received a game misconduct in the first period. Strike three against the Huskies, perhaps. That didn't end it though. Marcello Ranallo scored a goal in the second period to put us up 1-0. After the pitiful outing on Friday, it looked like we might win one here. Not so fast.

Robert Morris scored a goal in the second and a goal in the third and went up 2-1. They would win by that score. But they did get one of their players tossed for unsportsmanlike conduct. The refs were calling a lot of penalties, and it was just one nasty game.

Anyway, the Huskies have been playing pretty poorly since I've been here. Three straight UConn games I've attended have ended in losses. That's never happened to me before. I don't think that's going to change this afternoon with our women's ice hockey game vs. Boston College. But it would be nice if it did.

Anyway, that's all for now. Go Huskies!
