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 […]

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 […]

All Good Things Must Come To An End…

Posted by Josh on May 12, 2015 in Entertainment, Hockey, Sports |

The UConn Men’s Ice Hockey team just recently finished their Hockey East Inaugural season, and exceeded dismal expectations to become a team to be reckoned with.  Everything was against them but they still did great for a first year Hockey East team.  They made the jump to Hockey East, the best college hockey league in […]
