the season has started out pretty slow for the WVU hockey team, which isn't much of a surprise, considering they've played the number 2 ranked ohio bobcats twice. the third loss against john carroll is a bit of a surprise, but keep in mind that jc had played 7 games prior to the WVU game, at which point we'd only played 2 against ohio, breaking in a new coach and goalie on top of that.
the schedule doesn't get much easier this weekend, i'm afraid, as WVU takes on number 12 delaware at 9:30pm tonight, and again tomorrow afternoon at 4pm. the last trip delaware had to Morgantown, both games were very close and competitive, with Delaware escaping both times and keeping their lofty ranking in tact. WVU is due for a win over this team. it's been a long time and their first true home-stand could provide that extra spark. here's hoping to a good game tonight.
stop by the white park ice rink if you're in the area to support the old gold and blue.
