In that game against Acadia, UNB gave up three 1st period power play goals to Acadia. Even strength the play might have favoured UNB a bit, but conservatively it was even. Axemen had 8 power plays. UNB had three in the game. Special teams were the obvious difference in the game.
But yes, there are consequences for taking too many penalties, deserved or not, and UNB is proving that this season.
This weekend's UNB-Acadia game should obviously give us a good comparison on these two teams, and will affect the AUS standings and CIS rankings.
Another case of "Yeah,but..."
