    Re: MICHIGAN TECH HUSKIES...2016-17 season. 96th season of hockey (continued, part 2)

    I'll preface this by saying I'm not watching the actual game tonight - maybe these are just great goals....

    After the past few weeks, is angus tired? Does he need a reminder there are other guys here as well? IDK? I watch games and he looks strong but as of late the goals seem to come a lot easier.

    I hate to say we need to see Kero for a game or two, since angus was so strong early on, but it might do him good from a physical standpoint, and maybe refocus him?

    Again, I might not be the best critic due to mostly seeing highlights. I'm generally a radio guy and Dirk makes it sound like the defense is still fairly stout with the shot counts supporting it.

    An aside to prior comments - Gould is quickly becoming a favorite on this team, very quick and a great awareness of the team around him for scoring opportunities

    Absolutely inexcusable how brutal the officiating has been in the 3rd.

    Redmond has been hung out to dry on all 3 goals tonight. Considering he also stopped a penalty shot, he wasn't the problem this time. Lazy lackadaisical defense is the culprit.

    Agreed, he played much better tonight than he did last weekend, he gave up a juicy rebound on the third goal, but that's about it.

    Tonight's forward lineup scores 2.04 goals per game. Our forward group as a whole (including Leibinger) scores 2.06 goals per game. Not good enough. Our competition (WCHA and PairWise bubble teams):

    Air Force: 2.57
    Bemidji State: 2.06
    Boston College: 2.71
    Bowling Green: 2.12
    Minnesota State: 2.37
    Notre Dame: 2.68
    Ohio State: 3.61
    Omaha: 2.70
    Robert Morris: 2.71
    St. Cloud State: 2.36
    St. Lawrence: 2.21
    Vermont: 2.86
    Wisconsin: 3.17

    For teams ahead of us in the PairWise, only Miami's number (2.00) is worse.

    3L in a row. Same story too. Heavily outshoot but goals weren't there.

    Mel's post game with Dirk:
    Offense is hard to push. Getting pucks to the net. Breakaways. Rebounds but can't score.
    Can't fault effort. They did a lot of good things.
    Told team the first was one of best periods in awhile.
    Have to keep pick out of the net because we're not scoring.
    Can't fault angus at all tonight but he's also not making some of the saves he made earlier this year.
    They took advantage of our mistakes and we couldn't do the same.
    Don't feel bad for the guys. Have to work through this. Can still be solid on D. Need to keep teams to 0 or 1.
    Played so much better than last weekend just need to tighten up defensively.

    Tech has not been in the lead for 185 minutes and counting. You can't keep playing from behind in college hockey and expect good things to happen. A better start is essential today and moving forward.

    Ferris came to play this weekend, As Coach said the effort was there, Heinonen put one off the post that had beat the Ferris goalie, just keep shooting today.
    My hope is the flood gates open as they must also play for the trophy tonight and insure a multiple goal victory.

    Well it would be easy to be down but rather than that i'm just going to say my expectation level has been steadily dropping since the Notre Dame series and right now if we win 1 of the next 3 games, that's what I expect. if we win 2 it will exceed what I expect. Winning in the playoffs?, i'm not even sure we can get out of the first round.

    Tough pill to swallow - last Friday night the team controlled their own destiny to win the Cup, this Friday they're eliminated from any chance of winning it. Nothing but credit to Bemidji. Much like when Tech lost the cup to MSU, it's hard to say BSU doesn't deserve the Cup when they beat you three out of four.
    As for the goalies, everyone always says the goalie is playing too much... They are college kids. Who of us ever slept or needed rest when we were that age? Two games a week isn't a hard work load and Tech is off next weekend anyway. Depending on how the MTU and Mankato scores go the next couple games, maybe you put Wintjes in next Saturday at home against NMU just because he is a senior. Nothing against Wintjes, but the game might not mean anything by then anyway if Mankato loses a game or two next weekend while Tech is idle.

    It took 120 minutes this weekend for someone to finally figure out that Kapelmaster sucks high to the stick side.

    Totally forgot the game was early tonight, got home and looked at score to put on game and it was over, glad we won.

    They're only playing for playoff momentum and pride now. Maybe that will help.

    I'm a fan of golds for winter carnival, good to see them tonight.

    Mel's postgame:
    Their goal early in the 3rd gave them momentum, they came after us
    Credit to our gus after last night, good bounceback game
    On 5x3, good design by Shuchuk, Heinonen good shot
    Big W, a bit of streak with not much puck luck
    Told team to get pucks on net, got a lucky bounce on 1st goal
    Too many penalties, they made good plays on the rush on their PP
    Sturos good players, good to see him having his best year
    Sturos/Neville/Jackson did well this weekend
    Great crowd and great fans
    Hopeful Dane Birks will be back for NMU
    Steman is skating, not sure he'll be back

    I'm not sure it was any better than friday night. We didn't get behind though and we didn't give them as good looks defensively so in that regard we were better, but we slapped the puck around a lot and it looked kind of like pond hockey in some regards. I liked some of the things we did but we shot right at the goalie a lot and I thought that hurt us. The pp scored a goal but again, still needs work. Good to get a win no matter how it comes to you. Sturos last shot was a good one. The WCHa race is going to be really interesting, especially if Huntsville can steal a game from bgsu.

    He may be weak there, but on that particular shot he never got back to his goal before positioning himself. You can see on the replay just how far off he was.

    I noticed that two different times he tripped people but never got called. the first time was against Sturos on the first of the two goals. I think he had given up on the save and was just doing the tripping, hoping to get away with it and prevent the goal in the process.

    Eh, I think the play happened too fast for a thought process like that. The puck was close to his goal stick, so he reacted. By the time he moved it, the puck was gone and Reid's legs were there.

    Sure was fun going to a Wild game and getting to see an NMU goalie get shredded.

    Big Question of the Week - Are we actually cheering for NMU (playing MSU) this coming weekend so we can lock up the #2 seed? Cheering for NMU seems sick in my mind, but I really don't want that going down to the final weekend. Tech (51 pts) needs MSU (42 pts) to gain 2 or less points this weekend to lock up the #2 seed as MSU holds the head-to-head tiebreaker with Tech. Even if NMU gains 4 pts this weekend, they could still miss the playoffs if Tech sweeps them and other teams win their games. So we could "thank" the Wildcats by potentially ending their season.
