Pretty sure MacInnes is responsible for quite a bit.

Give the kid a break, he wasn't even alive the last time Michigan won a national title let alone have any idea who John MacInnes is.

The Gophers came to Houghton unprepared for the speed game plan of the Michigan Tech University Huskies. What the Gophers saw tonight is NOT the MTU team of year's past. Give credit to 2nd year Coach Mel Pearson for doing an amazing job of changing the culture of hockey at MTU. They were fast, they were focused, they made plays throughout their lineup, swarmed on the puck, played excellent D and Copley gets high marks in nets making some good saves. Overall they were the better team tonight in literally every facet of the game.

Obviously, a disappointing loss for the Gopher's opening game of the WCHA season. They came out with energy for the first few minutes and then it was all downhill from there giving up scoring chances to MTU who scored all 5 goals in the first 2 periods. Gopher passing was subpar, breakouts along the half boards was bad, and the D made several unforced errors giving MTU open shots on goal of which they quickly took advantage. There were very few odd man rushes by the Gophers and overall as a team they were "OUT OF SYNC" tonight (Grade: D).

The adjustment to a smaller ice sheet could have played a minor role, but next season in the BTHC, the Gophers will be the ONLY team with an olympic size sheet, so they better get used to it. THE BIG SHIBROWSKI looked stiff and a bit nervous to me, was victimized by a couple nice plays by MTU/D lapses by MN, but pulling him was the right move by Lucia (Grade: C-). Wilcox's agility seemed a better match for MTU's speed game and he showed some skill in the 3rd on a very good save to stop a sure MTU goal. Overall, the Gophers were severely outplayed by a fired up Huskies squad who came in focused and mentally prepared to knock off the #1 ranked team in the nation. Final: Michigan Tech 5, Gophers 3.

Tomorrow night I would expect to see Wilcox back in the nets and a more adjusted Gopher team ready to even the series. Go Gophers! :)

No. Mel assisted at Tech before going on to teach Red everything Red knows.

I'm a little bit sad that so many goofer fans were kind and respectful this week, and some even predicted a split. It takes some of the fun out of my celebration.

Are those Tech's usual home uni's? I don't think I've ever seen a game from there as it's radio only when we go there.

Like them much better than the roadies with the modern looking husky.

Replay on now... :D

If they come out hard tomorrow and get the split I am happy. Sweep at home, split on the road. Do that and you're fine.

They are the usual jerseys now, all new home/road/alternate jerseys this year, much improved in my opinion

Tech replaced everything following last season when they switched to RBK as their supplier. The blacks are nearly identical to the whites and the golds look much like the Huskies always have over the years.

I like. Retro looks much better to my eyes than modern. Fits the UP better imo also.

They are sharp looking sweaters. I like them.
