Goalies: First half in review

This is the last part of our first half review as we gear up for the second half beginning with the game this coming Saturday at Notre Dame on national TV through Versus(which becomes NBC Sports in the near future). Here are the goalies and our expert breakdown of their first half.

31 Kieran Millan- Millan has been shaky at times for the Terriers but overall, has played quite well sporting a 8-5-1 record with a 2.68 GAA and .917 Save % for the Terriers. Millan will be tested more often as the season progresses, as he will be relied upon by this team to carry them to where they want to go. Millan is going to need to find some gritty performances to win some tough games in the conference playoffs, the Beanpot, and hopefully, the NCAA tournament. Hopefully, he plays as good as he thinks he is because apparently this kid thinks he has all the swag in the world but "he is just ugly" according to teammate Garrett Noonan.

35 Grant Rollheiser- "Rollie" has only seen action in four games this season with 2 starts, which both resulted in wins. Rollie is sporting a solid 2-0, 3.34 GAA, .900 Sv % line for a backup goalie. Rollie has proven to be a capable backup to Millan and will continue to push his classmate for playing time in the second half.

1 Anthony Moccia- The third string goalie is opening the doors fantastically so far in the first half. Hopefully he can continue his strong performance in the second half because those doors aren't going to open themselves. The kid also is rumored to have a girlfriend so he is keeping up with the top 2 goalies off the ice as all three of these fine gentlemen are taken. Sorry, ladies.
