Home Playoffs, Here We Come

Posted by Josh on March 3, 2016 in Event, Hockey, Sports |

 

The UConn Hockey team has just made a huge step forward.  In just their second year in Hockey East, the Huskies have earned home playoffs, holding the opening round of the Hockey East tournament at the XL Center this weekend starting Friday March 4, as they will host the No. 9 seed Vermont Catamounts.  This is a huge accomplishment for the Huskies who show they are already making strides toward becoming a Hockey East power as they continue to build their program as they finished in the No. 8 spot in the 12 team conference, ahead of UMass, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.  The Huskies clinched home ice with an exhilarating final weekend.  Coming into the weekend in 10th and two points behind New Hampshire for the No. 8 spot, who they were playing for their last two games, the Huskies needed a sweep to clinch home ice, something that seemed impossible against a team they went 0-4 against last year and were win less against them in their entire program history.  Yet the Huskies made history by earning their first ever home ice playoffs as a Hockey East member with two exciting wins over the Wildcats.  On senior night at the XL Center, the Huskies scored two goals early, never looking back as they held on for the 4-1 win in front of a huge crowd of over 6200 fans.  The next night, in New Hampshire, the Huskies made college hockey headlines across the nation by coming back from a 4-1 deficit in the third period to score four unanswered goals to win 5-4 in overtime to bring the #IceBus back to Hartford.  The Huskies now look to use their momentum to get past Vermont and advance to the quarterfinals and make a run in the playoffs.  Games 1 and 2 are scheduled for Friday March 4 and Saturday March 5, both starting at 7:00 pm, and March 6 is scheduled for a Game 3 at 5:00 pm if a Game 3 is necessary.  See you all at the XL Center and let’s go Huskies!

UConn Hockey In The Month Of December

Posted by Josh on January 17, 2016 in Entertainment, Family, Hockey, Sports |

  The month of December was a complete contrast to the month of November where UConn Hockey is concerned.  After a winless month of November that saw the Huskies plummet to 11th in the Hockey East standings and post an 0-7 mark overall, 0-4 league mark during this grueling month, part of an eight game […]

An Exciting Night At UConn Hockey

Posted by Josh on January 10, 2016 in Entertainment, Event, Family, Hockey, Sports |

On December 11, I went with my cousins Christine and JC to a UConn Hockey game in Hartford at the XL Center.  It was the Huskies’ final game before the Christmas and exam break, who were coming off a sweep of the then-No. 5 UMass Lowell Riverhawks, to snap an eight game losing streak.  A […]

UConn Hockey In The Month Of November

Posted by Josh on December 27, 2015 in Hockey, Sports |

  While at least the early going of November should have been fairly easy for the Huskies, bad bounces, games where the Huskies played well but lost, and bad luck all piled up to make November not only a month to forget but also a win-less month as well.  Opposite to October, the Huskies had […]

‘Man of Steel’ Review

Posted by Josh on December 2, 2015 in Comics, Entertainment, Movie Review |

  With the next and second installment of the new DC Cinematic Universe coming soon in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’, I figured I should go back and do a review for the first installment ‘Man of Steel’.  Although this first blockbuster entry into the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe was stuffed with explosive special […]

Movie Clip Spotlight: Star Trek: Into Darkness

Posted by Josh on November 25, 2015 in Entertainment, Movie Review |

Here is a clip from the film Star Trek: Into Darkness that contains in my opinion the best fight scene of the entire movie and film series.  It features Spock tackling the villainous Khan to avenge a friend and comrade and to bring in the escaped fugitive.  A sequel, Star Trek Beyond, is scheduled to […]

The Dark Side Of The Force … And The Light

Posted by Josh on November 18, 2015 in Entertainment, Movie Review |

  Having become one of the most highly-anticipated movies of all-time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already set records for early ticket sales, and is a possible for setting the all-time highest grossing movie record or at least crossing the $1 billion mark.  Both a blessing and a curse about this film is that […]

  UConn hockey skates into the 2015-2016 hockey season with a lot of promise.  They had an unexpectedly good inaugural season in Hockey East where they picked up 10 wins and 7 ties overall and 7 wins and 4 draws in conference play and finished much higher than expected, sitting in ninth at the season’s […]
