The Purple Mavs come in splitting the last 2 series.

The Red Mavs come in losing the last 4.

Should be a fun weekend of hockey!

Bigclean is intrigued, I got ticksets for the Final 5, I expect to be seeing MSU playing in St Paul.

Hey!
I remember this feeling, 2008 right? A different outcome than that year would seal the NCAA tourney and I would love to see them at the X.

C'mon, the correct thread name should have been Red Cows vs. Purple Cows.

For reasons I cannot explain, even to myself, the boss and I are driving up to Mankato for this one despite the fact that I have little faith in our chances of prevailing.

Who know when we'll be in Mankato again (we aren't playing you next season) and my wife, the pizza freak, wants her Pagliai's fix.

Perhaps Mike Hastings will be feeling benevolent about the 18 years he spent here.

Or, perhaps the Purple Cows 6th ranked, nationally, power play will make our penalty kill look even more ridiculous than it has, even, for the past 2 months.

Just ask UAA, Wisconsin, or UMD. In our last 5 games, we allowed 13 goals in 26 power play opportunities. 50%. I am not kidding.

UNO now has the #53 penalty kill in the nation and we've allowed the most goals of any team in the nation with a winning record as well, 109.

That said, this series is the best possible road scenario we could have asked for. What's gonna happen? I have NO idea. Nothing would shock me at this stage.

I'm thinking the Red Cows just had their "alcoholic hits rock bottom" moment, where they realize they have to change what they're doing. That's why I'm nervous about this. Or am I overthinking it?

I really like the way the Mavs are playing right now!

Consistent!

Just make sure the mistakes happen less! Probably would have swept UND last weekend.

Could it just be the Purple Mav fan in you that is cautiously optimistic?;)

Flying into Minneapolis Friday night, so I will miss that game, but have my tickets for the Saturday night playoff game!

I'm not even capable of being cautiously optimistic. On my giddy days, I'm mildly pessimistic

This is what happens when there aren't any trolls, so somebody flame on!

I will set the over/under on goals allowed by UNO this weekend at 9.5.

Do you consider "this weekend" to include 2 days, or 3?

Therein lies the rub.
