Let's get some talk going on this one. I won't pretend to understand how important this is for Bemidji State, but after getting swept by Minnesota by scores of 7-2 and 8-0, I think it's very important for Ohio State to bounce back this weekend. Will that mean a sweep? Maybe, maybe not, but I do look for the Buckeyes to come out with fire in their eyes this weekend at home. I still believe this team has a chance to crack the top four. As always with these threads, I would like to hear from Bemidji fans regarding what we can expect from your team. Based on your season so far, have you found a capable goalie to replace Zuzana Tomchikova? What else can you tell us about your team? Good luck this weekend and safe travels to all the Beaver fans making the trek to Columbus! :)

Crikets.... Crikets, I'm a bottom four (last year's standings) fan. A shoot-out in each game maybe?

I think those crickets are still chirping! Ok, I will take a shootout in both games as long as we win them (LOL)! ;)

In the WCHA a sweep (6 points) is 50% better than two shootout wins (4 points).
But two shootout wins (4 points) is 100% better than two ties and losing both shootouts (2 points).

I can see how those extra percentages/points will be hugely important in determining which teams end up with home ice advantage come playoff time - especially this year with all the upsets we're seeing.

I agree that we will bounce back and that it's a must. With the season shaping up to be a 7 team battle royal for 2nd Place, every point earned against the rest of the "Bottom 7" :) is going to be vital, especially at the home games.

Go Bucks!

Wish we were going to be there this weekend! The OSU men are playing Bowling Green (Mrs 86 is a BG grad so we are a house divided this weekend) so we are going up there this weekend.

Bowling Green, Kentucky is south. They don't play a lot of hockey in Kentucky.

Bowling Green, KY is south of Ohio ... Bowling Green, OH is in northwest Ohio (north of us). We get that a lot (LOL)! We were at a Bowling Green football game down south one year and the question was asked, "Isn't that where they make Corvettes?" "Um, no, that would be Bowling Green, Kentucky." :D

Me thinks OnMAA was simply having a little fun. But just in case, Bowling Green, Ohio is located one county south of Toledo -- maybe 15 minutes on I-75. Thus the real BG is actually closer to Ontario than Kentucky. ;)

As for hockey in Kentucky, it's played at the club level at UK in Lexington. I know there's indoor ice in Louisville. But D-1 Hockey? Nope.

The Unofficial 3 Stars for Friday's game is now posted on the WCHA IV thread. Good night for the Buckeyes, both here in Columbus and up at BG.

Interesting that, at least scoring-wise, the two games had similar first halves (first 30 minutes of each), but the second halves were much, MUCH different.

Too bad the guys couldn't duplicate what the ladies did this weekend! Wish I would have been there for those games! Great to get six points. Pgb, I saw that score from today's game (10-1). Seems to me it's going to be a bit of a challenge to come up with your "unofficial" three stars for the game. I am anxiously awaiting that.

Thankfully, our kids were able to bounce back in a big way after the series at Minnesota last weekend! We needed that! :)

As you know, I have methods for expanding the list beyond the standard three. Would you believe 1 Honorable Mention, 4 Stars, and 6 recognized by full name in the text?:eek:;)

You did a masterful job sorting through the heroes from Saturday's game! It couldn't have been easy to narrow it down in a 10-1 game! I love the way our team is playing so far this season. It's a credit to our kids, and also our coaching staff. Coach Nate and his staff are obviously doing a great job preparing our kids for these games. I love our team! Sucks that we missed this series! I am already looking forward to the next home series!
