    Pretty impressive team there. Not sure what the pollsters are looking at up to this point but they'll notice now.

    Thank you, Mav team and Mav fans, for a terrific weekend! Great hockey, great venue, and great cameraderie! Met Backes, Leitner, and Coach Hastings this weekend. Not the Holy Trinity, but not bad, either!

    And got to watch both games on legitimate, free streaming! Not bad quality, either. Tonight's game lost the audio for a bit, but they got it back. Amazing performance by our guys!
    My guy is a hard-nosed hockey player who is not afraid to crash the net. Your guy is a goon who runs the goalie.

    Their streaming service was amazing considering i have few to no glitches and the NBCSN doesnt play that well. I like the announcers too which lets be honest can kill a game listening to garbage play by play. Favorite was 1st game

    Announcer 1 "we have WWE here eith some kids wrestling down there."
    Announcer 2 "ill take the chubby one to win"

    Absolute gem.
    As for the games I'm not sure I've ever seen a Maverick team play two complete games and get a sweep against such an opponent. And what's even more impressive for me is that this is on the heels of losing 4 to 0 to St Cloud at home in the opener. Obviously these games will help us come March if bu does what's expected of them. Now I'd like to see how they respond after two big wins, you have your first conference games coming. If they continue to play like this they are going to be extremely difficult to beat.

    Also McKay i thought did great in a few situations where he out muscled greenway who is NHL sized beast. For a freshamn D he definitely didnt give him anything

    How do you guys think Spooner will be for you guys moving forward? Know him well as I coached him for 2 summers on a AAA team. Great kid.

    Was very pleasantly surprised with his play this weekend. Saw him a little in the USHL and knew he was tough and smart, but didn't know if he could compete at the NCAA level. But a goal, 7 shots, and +2 on the weekend against a bunch of future NHLers shows that yeah, he can do it.

    I like how Coach Hastings has brought in a bunch of Captains, like Spooner, from the USHL. Smart leaders ready to step in right away.

    1. WOW
    2. It is amazing how easy it was to get into Agannis. City of Mankato should get with the people in Boston to learn how to do it.
    3. Got to meet purpleinnebraska. Great to meet you and your daughter

    Ditto on meeting you! My daughter said, "How could we go to these games for the last 5 years and not meet any of these people?" Not hanging out at the right places, I guess!
