Consider this table. It contains the average points per game played by class listed by their freshman year.

Looks like Nielson got cut by the hit and stayed out, but should be ok.

I love how Mel wasn't pleased by the fact we lost the third.

Such a good game to see. Need to keep it rolling.

Good win tonight, not a lot of lineup changes for the mid-week game, D. Johnstone got the night off, C. Pietila and B. Hietila were in, Hyland the only non-regular back on D


Mel's postgame thoughts:
Things went in for us, important to have a good practice, had a real good practice yesterday
Copley played well too, 4-1 NMU on the PP and he made a few great saves
NMU has owned the WCHA a bit this year, good for us
Gave D. Johstone a break tonight, C. Pietila came in did a good job
Only negative, Carl Nielsen only played 2 mins of game, Dmen had to play a lot, but he'll be okay
Can't find somone that had a bad game
Only didn't like, they wont the third period
good to get Jamie Phillips in, he looked good
Carl got cut in 2 spots by the helmet when it got knocked off and it was bleeding pretty good, decided to keep him out and get stitches, he's fine
Good poise in front of the net, Milos, Kero,
good to see J. Johnstone get his 1st goal, real nice play to Furne, that line is starting to come on
Rix/Eick playing really well on another line, Hyland also playign well
Short turnaround, 2 big games, may take tomorrow off or short practice,
Big lead early helped, kept rolling lines, didn't overextend anyone too much

Way to go Huskies. Now if it weren't for the unfortunate events of last Friday's game tech would be on a 4 game winning streak.

WCHA Freshmen Classes by Points Per Game

What is the GA for the freshmen classes? I'd venture to guess Tech is near the bottom. It's nice to see them putting up points, but at some point, you have to shut the other team down. Can't outscore your mistakes.

I agree, but the fact that we're scoring more goals is a good thing after some of the lean year defensive years with Jamie.


For people with Charter in MN and maybe parts of WI? the charter extra channel 87 should have the Tech @ Mankato games on TV this weekend.

Certainly an impressive performance by the Huskies! If you come to the game from Marquette and the highlight of the trip is the pizza at the Ambassador, then Tech must have done something right!

GAA of a freshman class does not matter much to me. Defense is teachable; scoring much less so.

WOW...an 8 to 2 win over those pesky Wildcats is very impressive! Looks like Mel has the team peaking at the right time. Does anyone know the attendance figure for Tuesday's game?

i was told by the forum that the Mac with Northern in town was so much better than Yost.

i was told by the forum that the Mac with Northern in town was so much better than Yost.Apparently not on the tuesday immediately following Winter Carnival. It's no excuse for the fact that people didn't show up because I expect a sell out and 2-3 deep SRO on the glass for a Tech vs Northern game...hopefully next year with the games scheduled on weekends, we can return to the exciting crowds we used to have for these games.

I don't think there was a large Northern group there either. Weekday games suck.

the team has had some nice wins this year, but the fact of the matter is, they're still in 10th place. I think people want to believe in this program, but so far, the results have been more of the same. Bottom third of the WCHA again. very frustrating.

I would crawl through a mile of snowbanks from downtown in a blizzard to avoid paying $5 for parking. And sneak in my own coke and nachos.

"For people with Charter in MN and maybe parts of WI? the charter extra channel 87 should have the Tech @ Mankato games on TV this weekend".

When I lived in Southeastern Wisconsin I was able to watch The Tech-Mankato series on Charter channel 87. It seems weird that people in Wisconsin, who have no dog in the fight, are able to watch the games but the folks in the UP arent't able to watch this series. I was just wondering why Charter in Houghton can't pick up the games?????
