I thought there were a number of issues for us this weekend, but Baretta played very well, Kero played quite well also aside from the one leaker goal, and there are a lot of little things that can be cleaned up. We could really use more face-off wins though, a better power play, and fewer dumb mistakes defensively.
A much, much better effort than on saturday.
I thought the refs could have been more consistent for both sides and some of the icing calls were inaccurate.

Best in college hockey IMHO

Dirk is outstanding. Tech hockey has always been in great broadcast shape! Bob Olson is a legend and Dirk is simply one of the best.

Saturday was horrible. Just...nothing good at all to say about that embarrassing performance.

Sunday, they played much better, and in my opinion, undisciplined is not the right word. I didn't get that impression watching the game. Some stuff to clean up, but not as bad as it would look just looking at the box score. The officiating on Sunday was terrible. Uneven, inconsistent...couldn't even call icing right, since there were about 4 bad calls on icing only. Hell, they called offsides on Tech, when Tech was going into their own defensive zone. They called a blatant intentional elbow to the head only a 2 minute penalty... For the team, I really liked what I saw the first 2 periods, they looked very good, against a very good team. They got sloppy in the 3rd, gave up too many scoring chances on D, and paid the price. I thought Kero played well, and think with a few more games under his belt he'll be a fine replacement for Phillips.

Also, the in-arena production at Amsoil might be some of the worst in all of hockey. The sound was terrible. Music too loud to hear the announcer talking at the same time, extremely loud and distorted radio play calls played after each UMD goal, that you can hardly understand. I'm not sure if that is just poor sound quality, or just the fact that Ciskie is ****ing terrible as a play by play guy. How a team like UMD can put up with a hack like Ciskie is beyond me. Overall, the in-arena experience left much to be desired, which I found odd, because on previous visits to Amsoil, I didn't think it was bad at all.

They've been tweaking the audio system to fit what the fans suggested on their Fan Interest Survey's. Your Ciskie hate is comical. I'm not sure how people like Dirk seeing how each time he gets excited it sounds like he had a balloon full of helium right before.

No ciskie hate here, but the audio was a bit rough, no doubt of that. They need to pass a collection plate around to get the rights to play the entire Zamboni song :D
