    I think it would be foolish if anyone argued who has the better team, has more skill players, etc. I think the season/pairwise confirms that. I thought the key was our goaltending. NMU really turned up the heat on us and Daccord held them off. I thought we sat back a little in the middle of the game, but we win at this stage by being opportunistic. Flip of the script from our game with Lake last weekend. We outshot them 49-21 and lost 4-1. Were outshot by 20 last night and won by 4. Good luck against BC tonight!

    Can Walt Kyle actually be in the stands in two places at once?

    NMU is 31st in the (completely meaningless) USCHO Polls. (Two are tied for 20th). I'd like to thank whoever gave us the lone courtesy vote after having our a**es handed to us by ASU.


    Also, it's nice to see that Number 26 Union is rightfully at number 26 in the same USCHO poll.


    For anyone who wants to argue me that these polls aren't meaningless, MSU Mankato dropped a spot after *sweeping* UAA. They didn't even hold serve by sweeping.

    Classes don't start until Tuesday the 16th. So it doesn't look good attendance wise.

    Things have changed since we were there Its just time to accept it... 4-5 of us could show up in Sec. 16 and carry more energy than the building has seen in a long time.

    But hey, very solid start to the weekend so far
    It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

    Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

    Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!

    You and me both. (Well, I'm only 8 hours away.)

    They looked good on my WCHA.tv feed.

    Hockeyville and the Best Taco Truck in the United States...yah der, you betcha!!! Marquette goes bonkers for anything involving online voting and the utter lack of support for NMU Hockey is a slap in the face by this community and proof of what an absolute joke these contests are. Hell, that taco truck even has overpriced, average food, with way to small of portions for me to even pay a visit. On the other hand, NMU Hockey is exciting again. Just what the people wanted, right! There is great beer and food selections inside the arena, we have a jumbotron, and Walt Kyle is gone...so where the hell are the people?

    The team this year is far and away the most exciting team I have watched inside the Berry Events Center in the last 10 season. They play hard, create tons of offense and every goal last night was PRETTY!!! Luckily for those late to return many of this season stars are underclassmen so the future looks very bright. It's never too late to rejoin the action and fun, NMU needs your support!

    This team has been winning for a solid year. In the 2017 calendar year, NMU was 20-15-4 overall and 17-9-2 in the WCHA. They’ve a record setting goaltender, the #2 goal scorer (Robbie Payne) and the #4 playmaker (Adam Rockwood w 20 assists) and the 2nd place team in the WCHA.

    They're running out of excuses. I'm sure they're still holding out because the seats are terrible (height was adjusted in 2002), the sightlines are terrible (they are not), or the glass is crap (replaced with 'seamless' a few years back).


    Not sure what other excuses the locals can make.

    Thrilling game tonight. This team is something special. Marquette needs to get back behind this team because there's some exciting hockey at the Berry this season.
