The season series with Lowell is on the line for the Huskies tonight, but more importantly, the Huskies could be fighting for the playoff lives.
The 8 game win streak was great, but since almost all of the games were non-conference, the Huskies conference record is still awful thanks to a terrible start. The teams around them keeping winning as the Huskies have gone 0 for 3 in the new year.
Tonight is a must win for the Huskies. Another loss puts them in a deep hole with no much time to dig themselves out. This team needs to find a way to get back to the way they played during the win streak. That may require a shake up at the bottom of the lineup. Rob Dongara won’t be playing tonight. Thats a start. I’d like to see them keep the first two lines as they have been, the third line should be Mann0-McLaughlin-Tuckerman and the fourth should be Reid-Daniels-Stone. Stone and Manno need to be in the lineup.
Rawlings could maybe use a rest too. The goals last night were not is fault, but he didn’t see, like his normal self. Give him the night off, he deserves one.
I don’t know what to do about the special teams, but just change them any way you can.
Its not panic time yet, but if the Huskies can’t win tonight its officially time to worry about missing the playoffs for the second time in 3 years.
