We all know that special teams win/lose games, but seeing it in black/white sure drives it home.

    Well done. One small quibble - Pawloski is more likely than Nelson to be in goal for MSU-M this year. He played more games and had better numbers across the board than Nelson. We also picked up a grad transfer from BU to make the competition interesting, but it's still likely Pawloski's job to lose.

    Is Minnesota State going to get a return trip from BU in 2018? or is this a one time good deal.

Clearly we have established early on which poll sponsor places more local bias into their polling results.

    I don't put my finger on the scale, man. These polls are useless, anyway — BSU was sixth in both last year.

    There are some speculation that Bitzer could be chosen as a goalie for Team USA in the upcoming Olympics. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the team if that does happen.

    I had heard Team USA was going to target minor league pros to comprise the team since the NHL is apparently too good for the Olympics and they want to avoid sucking a bunch of younger guys out of school.

    I was planning on running one this year, but if you know someone who wants to run it, I'd be happy to turn it over.

    I always enjoy the WCHA Pick Em. If you want to keep it I'm in this year. If you want to pass it on, let me know. I can pick it up.

    That BU game vs Union is why any team going in to Boston does so at the risk of the referees. Here we have a 1-1 hockey game late. I would have said before the game, if it's even or behind late, look for the refs to even things up for BU. Sure enough, 7 minutes left on the power play, BU scores. now it;s a nice goal and then they score two empty net goals, so it looks one sided, but it was close game, decided by the referees.
    So all you Mankato fans. be ready. BU was probably the better team, but Union was good and deserved not to be screwed.
