Keeping it short and sweet: they turned it on late, but fell just short. I feel that may be the story of the season, too.
I'm encouraged by the good play in the final 15 minutes, but disappointed that it took them that long to seem to be interested in the game.
Giving up a goal with 4 seconds left in the first period came back to bite them.

I hate senior days. They're a reminder that I'm getting old. I'm really going to miss this senior class, as they provided a lot of the memories that I've treasured during my time at the Heights.

I'm going to be taking a blogging hiatus for a week, as I feel like I need to take a week-long sports hiatus as well. I'm experiencing a little burnout, and things just aren't as fun for me as they usually are [even with the teams that are winning]. I feel half-detatched from every game I'm at and feel like I need a break. I'd try to do a Lent-like break, except the big tournaments are coming up... but I'll probably do a long one at some point this summer.
But for now, coinciding with a week in which I have 3 midterm exams, I'll be taking a hiatus until Friday night's game against Providence [except for my EagleInsider stories... I do not need a break from making money]. No games, and no incessant checking of the blogs and of scores 'til then.
