Consider it done.

I'm impressed and will be more impressed if it comes to fruition. Should be easy anyway. Huskies beat them 7-2.

Holy shit. Mankato beat Alabama-Huntsville over the weekend sweep 18-0 for the two games.
Last time I recall similar dominance was SCSU putting the hurt on Arizona State the first year of their program, but that was only 15-1.

I guess them there rednecks don't take to the ice very well.

Sure seems an unlikely school to have a D1 hockey program. They've been around a while now. I wonder if they decide to shut it down.

If I had told you at the beginning of the season that Bemidji would be higher in the Pairwise than St Cloud at the end of the season, what would you have said? You would have laughed and probably told me to DREAM ON.

I wouldn't have expected it, but this was likely to be a rebuilding year considering the players we lost and I hate the crappy coach since Motzko went to Minnesota.

Bemidji knocked off Mankato last night.

That brings us to within 3 points in the standings. So if we win tonight, we tie for the league championship. Anyone know what the tie-breaker is? I'm hoping it's head-to-head, because that means we win the tie-breaker!

Is 3,612 a good attendance number?

Just found out the tie-breaker is head-to-head. So if Bemidji wins tonight, they win the tie-breaker and the #1 seed.

Sorry you couldn't see us bring home the MacNaughton tonight Matt. We had a great run and had a chance on the last night of the regular season to win the league, but came up just short.

As long as we don't lose to Lake St in the first round, we should have a good shot at making the NCAA. Great season!!

Man, that was fun for a couple minutes after we got to within a goal and kept the pressure on. Hockey can be such a game of luck, am I right? Why did that goal go in for BSU, but the 10 other opportunities did not? Overall I'd say it was a very evenly played game. We outshot them by a few. Scoring opportunities were about equal. Both goaltenders played well. Driscoll made one truly magnificent save that kept us in it.

Sat right behind Serratore. Very confused as to what a hockey coach does. Doesn't look like he does much at all? Both teams called timeouts. For the most part, it was just rest. The coaches didn't say anything to the players. Nothing about strategy. I saw the defensive coach use a whiteboard one time towards the end of the game. Serratore just stood there. I don't get that. I couldn't see the Mavs bench. Was curious to know if their coach is the same way. It's just the complete opposite of basketball, when coaches never stop talking, yelling, drawing up plays, you name it.

Good luck in the NCAA Beavers. Huskies run finally came to an end. Easy game one win over Denver but couldn't get the sweep. Nobody looking forward to playing SCSU anymore.

Long season
Coaches voices are in players ears from start to finish
There's plenty of bench chatter, its just directed at the back of the players heads.
Hockey coaching and strategy happens mostly in practice. Practices are repetitions of learned behavior.
You get to games, you better have your poop in a group.
The basic breakouts and forechecks of hockey are a lot more simplistic than average fans think they are.
99% of teams from the age of 10 up run the same basic plays and systems, the only thing that varies and changes, are player abilities and comprehension.
D retrieve the pucks, forwards move into position for receiving passes and leaving the zone. Some D are more active, some are not.
Some teams release forwards early to stretch defenses, some don't.
You make all these plans in practice and before games and during period breaks. Hockey relies on player reactions to different types of pressure.
Of course you can tweak things slightly in-game, but most is done by the guys you rely on to "get it" and react accordingly.

UMD gets revenge on SCSU by sweeping them to close the regular season. Huskies were going so strong prior to the second Denver game last week.

It's a must-win game for Bemidji State tonight. Last night's loss dropped them to 13th in the Pairwise, just hanging on. #13 or #14 will probably be the last spot that gets in. A loss tonight would knock us down too far to get in.

Beavers win! Unfortunately I think we need to win the next series too or we won't make the NCAA tourney.

I think the WCHA is doing itself a disservice by having such an extensive playoff format. We just knock each other down in the Pairwise, other than Mankato. Should probably address this problem.

Source confirms that former
@GopherHockey
Don Lucia will be named commissioner of the new CCHA. The conference has a 1 p.m. video conference to announce the call. Story to come.

So this new CCHA is supposed to be taking away almost all the WCHA teams? What's the point in that??
