I don't recall offhand what the NCAA rules are regarding how many can travel and I don't know who was in town but not in uniform last night. It will be interesting how Joe juggles the lineup this afternoon. I like keeping Reitmeier-Bliss-Halonen together.

if Saretsky, Halonen, Pietila, and Misiak patrol the RW all season, we will see some offense from all 4 lines.

They will need to find offence from somewhere. 1 goal in 60 minutes won't get it done most nights.

My thoughts from the opening game...

For those not able to attend in person, the overall RMU facility is pretty impressive as a whole. Granted the "varsity" rink is nothing special, but it is attached an Olympic ice rink, a second NHL spec open air ice rink and an NHL spec ROLLER hockey open air rink. This complex almost has more lockerrooms than ASU has seats for home games.

Goaltending was the #1 star last night and the reason Tech won the game. There were a number of grade "A" saves by MJ last night. RMU could have easily had 3-4 goals last night had the net minding not been sharp.

I was disappointed to see Tech repeatedly dump and chase on the power play. RMU just kept their D deep and 75% of the time they easily beat Tech to the puck and dumped it back out of the zone. I was surprised Tech didn't change up their plan or at least make a softer dump to give the forwards a better chance of beating RMU to the loose puck.

Overall, I felt Tech had a smaller line-up on the ice, but didn't have/use speed to capitalize on that advantage. They got knocked off the puck quite a bit due to the lack of size. Hopefully Tech will put a larger line-up on the ice tonight to match the physical play of RMU so Tech can control the puck more. Too much of last night's game was played in Tech's zone.

A win is a win so the how doesn't matter once it is in the books. Just improve going forward. And for the record, Joe is right. Mozart's paintings were crap. His best works were musical in nature. I know Joe is man of honor and I'm sure he's mailed off a check for $1 to super intellectual NFL coach Andy Reid who originally coined that phrase about a week ago.

Bring the brooms and let's get the sweep tonight and get out of Steel Town with two big road, non-conference wins.

Can I hear an AMEN?

Just watching on TV but I had gone to see NMU on saturday night and then watched us this afternoon. My comment is we were sloppy and slow to get out of the zone. Strength on the puck was an issue at times but we missed a lot of passes early too.

NMU was quite good and will be pushing BG for second.

Not a gaffe. Supposedly a football coach said that last weekend.

Saw the interview again, and you're right. KC Chiefs coach. :D

I guess I should offer a 12-pack of Pepsi to anyone who can answer this, but when was the last time the Huskies recorded a hatty and a shutout in the same game?
