Miami hockey’s three-goal second period and ability to play an entire 60-minutes led to a 4-2 victory over National Collegiate Hockey Conference opponent Western Michigan on Friday night. The win was the RedHawks’ first since Jan. 5. “The first five minutes were a little slow but once we started getting into a rhythm there it seemed like we controlled most of the game,” junior defenseman Grant Hutton said at the post-game press conference. A No. 1 nationally ranked power play that went 2-for-7 and a 28-22 shot differential allowed the RedHawks (10-12-3, 4-8-2 NCHC) to edge past the No....Read More
Miami hockey hopes to up its intensity and pace of its game when it hosts Western Michigan this weekend. The RedHawks are playing for their first win in four games, first series win since late October and their first National Collegiate Hockey Conference series win. “Sometimes when you go through a little bit of a spell like we are, a little bit of adversity, I always tell the team that every year I’ve been in coaching, every team goes through adversity,” head coach Enrico Blasi said in his weekly press conference. “You can’t tiptoe around it.” Last weekend, the...Read More
After falling to Colorado College 6-3 on Friday night, Miami hockey managed a 4-4 tie on Saturday night to break its four game pointless streak. The RedHawks were inconsistent in Colorado Springs, surrendering an early lead on Friday to the Tigers and then losing an early lead on Saturday. Inconsistency has plagued the ’Hawks after they split with No. 4/5 Denver in early January, but lost 11-7 and 4-3 to Omaha the week after. Following a bye week and several community service events, the RedHawks were looking to utilize their speed through transition and battle on the ice to...Read More
Miami hockey took an early lead and topped No. 4/5 Denver 4-3 at home on Friday, before falling behind early and losing 4-1 on Saturday. Now 2-6-2 on the second night of two-game series, the RedHawks have yet to find a way to sustain Friday night momentum into Saturday night. “I thought our details, especially right off the bat hurt us tonight,” head coach Enrico Blasi said at Saturday night’s press conference. “Especially the first goal and a couple guys making poor judgements when coming off the ice.” Sophomore goaltender Ryan Larkin stopped 44 of the 47 shots he...Read More
Miami hockey returns to regular season action tonight against defending national champions the University of Denver after a month-long hiatus. The RedHawks look to break over .500 this weekend against the nationally ranked No. 4/5 Pioneers. “We’re playing a team that has a lot of skill up front, a lot of skill in the D-core, a proven goalie and they’re very well coached,” head coach Enrico Blasi said in his weekly press conference. “We’ve got some things we need to work on, but it should be a fun environment, a fun weekend.” The ’Hawks finished 8-8-2 halfway through the...Read More
