AIC Head Coach Eric Lang is an honest man in this game. He built AIC Hockey to what it is bu being straight up. Once again, Lang was upset with his team after they got out done by the Black Bears of Maine, 5-1. Lang’s group was outshot 46-18, and gave up four unanswered markers to make the final tally. The only group Lang thought did alright were his goalies, lead by Brennan Boynton who made eight saves in relief of Jarett Fiske. With that said, here are some pointed but direct comments from Lang after a game that everyone in this program wants to only be a wakeup call and not a canary in a coal mine.

Lang’s thoughts on the night:

“It was the same old for us intermittent competitiveness. We got outworked on just about every puck battle.”

Lang on what won the game:

“ The hungrier more combative team won the hockey game. We showed up to Maine like we were on a vacation or a field trip. We won’t win consistently until our effort reflects that.”

Lang on his goalies and any positives from the drubbing:

“Goaltending was fine. It felt like they had 100 shots on goal so it’s hard to tell right now. The positives are thank God we don’t have to play them again.”

Lang on what needs to change from the group to get better results:

“At some point guys in the room have to take this thing over. It’s extremely hard to coach effort. The only way I know how to control effort is to take your ice time away.”

The team has another chance to get things going forward this Thursday against Bentley.
