Re: 2016-17 SCSU Men's Hockey Season

It can be misleading to judge attendance from watching online or on TV. The camera shots usually show no more than the lower 10 rows of seats, and even with a 75% of capacity crowd, those low rows often are left open because they aren't the best for seeing the live action in a game. I've been to fiv...

Re: Miami at Huskies Feb 10/11-2017

Nice win. No puck luck early one, but the chances turned to goals eventually. Smith solid again, really trusting him in the net now game in and game out. If Huskies can win 2 of their next 3 they will be in good shape heading in to the final regular season weekend all things considered. If Judd can ...

Re: 27-28Jan2017- 2017 NORTH STAR CUP @ Xcel Energy Center

It's a bit strange that it was a full 20 minute first-goal-wins OT rather than the normal 5 minute (followed by 3 x and then shootout). Had that been the case, the game would have been an official tie since the winner came at the 6:00 minute mark.

Two nice wins over the Metropolitan State Gophers.

Re: 2016 Off-season catch all thread

I was not at the Friday game back in November, but did attend on Saturday. Yes, some were being a bit obnoxious but it quickly dissipated as the Huskies gained the upper hand. For what it's worth, we were at the Ralph for the Husky series in 2013. It was a fun trip and I have to say the UND fans wer...

Re: 2016 Off-season catch all thread

I don't think $5 for parking is bad at all. There are also options to avoid the parking fee, such as busses from local bars/restaurants.

Re: 2016 NCAA West Regional @ The X

Fantastic season. Thank you players (especially the seniors), coaches, and fans (great showing today at the Xcel). I really enjoyed the offense, defense, and the W's this season. A little weird thing: like this season, the 2000-2001 team finished with an identical 31-9-1 record and also won the conf...

Re: 2015-16 Huskies

Dartmouth did the Huskies a potential favor on Sunday night, beating Colgate in double OT to take the first round ECAC series. So what? Well, now Quinnipiac has to play RPI #17 Cornell instead of #43 Colgate in the second round. Maybe Cornell can take a game (or two) and allow the Huskies to leap th...

Re: 2015-16 Huskies

Being #1 overall gives you a chance to play a much lower RPI team. If for example the 3rd place team in Atlantic Hockey wins their tournament, they would be #16 but also about #35 in the RPI. This makes winning game 1 in the NCAA a much better proposition than being #2 overall and playing the #15 or...

Re: 2015-16 Huskies

What I want is titles, any of them... so throwing a title game for seeding purposes doesn't sit well with me and would not sit well with the players or coaches. Trust me when I say this and ask Motzko if you don't believe it...he doesn't care one whit about the seeding. As long as we get in, we hav...

Re: Feb 26-27, 2016 SCSU Huskies vs UMD Bulldogs (Senior sal

Not a bad game as the score might suggest. UMD blocks a lot of shots and few 2nd chances. The 3rd goal was huge for them as we know they are tough to score on - we saw that at Amsoil in January. I suspect a good Husky win tomorrow night. I wouldn't count on Omaha beating UND tomorrow, but the silver...

Re: Jan 30-31, 2016 North Star College Cup

No reason to hate on this little tournament. There are some good teams and playing in St Paul during the thick of hockey season! Ice on the river, ice sculptures in the park. Great venue and lots of Minnesota talent on the ice. Won't be able to attend, but will certainly tune in on FSN.

Re: Jan 15-16, 2016 SCSU Huskies @ UMD Bulldogs

I liked the 3 on 3 much better than a shootout. I thought it was pretty entertaining to watch. Better yet may be to give each team a 2:30 5 x 4 power play, visitors going first. Each team would get the full 2:30 to score as many times as they could. If the shorthanded team scores though, the games e...

Re: Jan 15-16, 2016 SCSU Huskies @ UMD Bulldogs

Should be a great weekend of hockey and adult beverages in the freezing cold north country. First trip to the new Amsoil and am excited for the weekend!
