This is the first year that we're not planning on making the trip either. Feels strange. Maybe we'll hit you up last-minute Skeets.

This is gonna be a TOUGH weekend, but with how well we played them at the Brooks Center in the first half, almost winning both nights (and SHOULD have won at least one, but I digress) and how far the guys have all come since then I definitely could see us get a win (or 2?) this weekend.

Add to that that we tend to play REALLY well in their rink, most notably in the 2014-15 season when our ONLY win against them was up nort.

But it all comes down to Goaltending, and I'm still not 100% confident on ours just yet; Driscoll has improved every weekend and Smith was great last weekend so they're definitely gaining prowess and confidence though!

Tough weekend following the Miami let down. We need to find a way to string together a few wins, but I don't think this is the weekend it happens.

Who knows, we could just be returning to the sweep or be swept trend of the first several series.

I'm done being confident about this team until they show me something, but at the same time I feel like I've been swung way to far in the other direction based on what should have been a road split that I would have been satisfied with. It's times like this where I wish I wasn't such a big fan so they could get the next win or two without me and I could get back on board.

If the team gets swept this weekend you might as well put a fork in them.

Not to bash Nick and Jack but if they weren't brothers there's no way someone as talented as Ryan Poehling would be playing with both of them nearly every game. I know they tried separating them once but Ryan is clear first line talent. Looking at those lines it looks like a 1A and 1B line. I really hope Jack and Nick can start clicking so that line can also be considered more of a 2nd line then a 4th line but if they can't produce with Ryan I don't expect much now.

St. Cloud State at Minnesota Duluth men: Both teams are coming off of a tough weekend. St. Cloud State got swept at Miami. Duluth lost and tied Colorado College. The Bulldogs will be without defenseman Willie Raskob tonight as he serves a one-game suspension for contact to the head. SCSU 3-2, Minnesota Duluth 3-0.

The Twins have been playing fine and they can and will produce...even without Ryan. It's been 20 games for all 3 of them...way to early to say they can't produce without Ryan.
