    Coaches may have a plan, but there is this thing called execution. As a coach, you can make all kinds of great adjustments, but if the players don't execute, you're not going to have success.

    Well said. I agree, Tech was out coached tonight.

    Great adjustments....as in Tech was able to move the puck around on the pp tonight. Even though they didn't get any shots on net. Huge strides, 40 games in and you can occasionally gain the zone and work the puck around. Or how about the bench management, matching lines when you are down by 1, bad whole sale line change that lead to the goal. 3 defenseman out at the end of the game during the 6 on 4 pp, that is a first.

    You need to win the special teams battle in big games. PP goals are huge. Same thing all year; UMD, UofM, Western, MN State ect.

    I'm sure they have reasons for doing what they do. I don't think we are privy to all the issues for those decisions. The line change I don't think you can put on the coaches.
    I agree the pp has been anemic all year, and a pp goal last night would have been real good.Against teams that pressure the puck, we have not done well.
    I thought overall the defense was real solid and giving up one goal normally you'd expect to win those games. But a high pressure game like mankato played, you would expect that to come with some risks and I hope we can expose those areas tonight. I thought our forecheck was a weak areas for us and the face-offs as well.

    I'll be very interested to see what changes they make, and I'll bet Gerrie plays, but you're right rb, having a couple more guys would have been nice.

    One team was facing elimination, one was not, I think Tech will match that tonight.
    What a barn burner this is going to be tonight. Go back and watch the highlights, there could have been 2 goals in there.
    Go Tech!

    Fill the building tonight, present a better 6th man for the Huskies and give the team the support.

    If at the beginning of the season you were told that Tech would play for the right to get to the Championship game at home, I think we would take it.
    Now support the team and let's do our best to make this happen. MSU played awesome last night, tip our hat, but tonight Tech plays awesome.

    Go get it boys!

    No offense but that would be the 7th man. There are 6 on the ice
    Unless there is a fan out there that thinks they can improve a roster spot!

    Seriously, when the camera at UAH is better than the lead camera at Tech, you've got issues. Retire the old lady, she can't find the puck if she was in a phone booth with it.

    At least they leveled the reverse angle camera tonight so it doesn't look like the Batman villain hideout shot.

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, you knew what I meant, with the way Angus has played this year he is worth at least being a given. 😊
