This is a crucial series for the Mavericks. They must get four points. They head south winning their last 5 games, and gladly enjoying having Zach Lehrke. Keep it rolling, gentleman.

With a focused effort, the Mavs should be able to leave Huntsville with the much needed 4 points. With that being said, Minn St. has not been a good road team this year. UAH is improving, and can beat anyone if you let them hang around. With our current weather, I wish I could make this road trip.

Go Mavs!!!

Must have 4 points, that is all

Or, as we found out last year, at the very least they can tie you if you let them hang around. Given that we've struggled a little this year, we're 8 points out of first, UAH won at Bowling Green last week and tied us last year, you'd think we'll understand the urgency of this weekend. But college kids do stupid things every day, like stiffing a cabbie on a $4 fee.

There's no excuse for coming home with less than four points. They have to use the two games they have in hand to close the gap on Ferris State. The Mavericks will be superior in talent all weekend and they must match the effort UAH will give. (No disrespect to UAH, but it's just the truth.)

I'm looking for a big weekend from Zach Stepan before he joins the national team. Hopefully, we get to see him in the red, white, and blue on the 17th.

Wouldn't that be something.

Lots of UAH chatter in here...

We need it, but I would say in looking at UAH's results from this year, they're not nearly as bad as I thought. Yes, there were the 2 real drubbings, but those were against Northeastern in the first game of the year (and Northeastern has been way better than most thought they'd be) and against #1 St. Cloud. A bunch of one goal games in there. They're having trouble scoring, but it's not like they're giving up 6 or 7 a night. Led Ferris and St. Cloud in the third period. Don't sleep on them, or even nap a little!

Exactly why we need it; If we want to call ourselves a top team in this conference and this country, they need to sweep series such as this weekend's.

Freep headline this morning - "MSU won't overlook Huntsville". I hope that's right. I am a little concerned about this weekend. They can not take their foot off the pedal.

We should and have to get 4.

What can we say? We'll do the best we can. :)

Here's a tidbit: The all-time series is tied at 19-19-5, playing off and on since 1988 as D-I and D-II. I'm glad the WCHA has made us regulars again.

If there's one thing I think Coach Corbett has done very well is getting the team to adjust. It's no coincidence that our one-goal losses and our win were on Saturdays.

Two points in the pocket, let's get the other two tomorrow night.

I'm not usually one to get angry like this, but show some class UAH. You're in a 2-1 game; play hard an don't get cheap because you're the worst team in college hockey. Win or lose, do it with class.

No doubt it was embarrassing behavior, but class goes both ways and neither leitners revenge hit nor your insults show any.

Hope all the guys who were victims of those hits are ok. Be curious if there any additional repercussions.

This was posted before Matty's hit, which was a stupid play and indicative of why he doesn't have a letter on his jersey. I was highly frustrated with those two plays by UAH, and then we decide to get in the crap. Embarassing.

I'm getting frustrated with his "Jutting-ness". This is two series in a row he's gotten into the middle of that kind of garbage. He's too talented of a player to put him and his team in the middle of those types of situations. Besides, nothing good comes out of it. Penalties happen. Scoring against happens. People get hurt. It's dumb. I now see why people scoffed when I mentioned him as a captain candidate.

Exactly. I knew he wasn't captain material. Just watching him play, he's effortless. Imagine if he had McInnis' work ethic..he's talented but doesn't use it to his full advantage. Makes me feel stupid for thinking he could possibly be a Hobey Top 10 guy..

Hey, we generally haven't been in series-specific topics in years so we/I don't go looking for them.
