    I couldn’t care less how Tech is playing. If our team shows up and plays like they did Saturday night we have a chance of winning. If our team plays like they did against FSU last weekend we will lose. MTU went winless in Anchorage and will be angry and a bit desperate for points. We’ll have match their intensity. I would expect they come out flying and we need to be prepared for it.
    If your team plays like they did against UAA, and if your goalie is hot, you have a good chance of getting points. Tech has a team of fast skating guys, but the Nanooks can match that. I'm sure their coach won't make the mistake of starting Beydoun, that he made in Anchorage.

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    Completely different game tonight compared to last night. They played well tonight. Still made some errors but overall there was great improvement. I noticed the change Friday night when we pulled Anton and the guys worked real hard to prevent the ENG. Glad to see it carried over to tonight.
    What a weekend for empty net play for the Nanooks. On Friday Northern had many chances to score, a couples that were point blank shots, which were blocked by defensemen. Saturday we scored 2 empty net goals. Both of which are uncommon for us.

    Well, you have to have a lead at the end of a game to get a chance at an empty netter...and that in itself has been uncommon for us.

    It is much easier to score when the opposing net is empty. #strategery

    But as GoNanooks noted, I've been to number of games where apparently it wasn't that much easier.
