Good luck tonight.

Our observations from last weekend were that CSS attacked the middle, while you guys played on the perimeter.

Look at the A Zone shot chart from the two games. CSS outshot us from there like 2-1, our game with you - it was even.

I guess it was an OK weekend. I would have felt good with at least 3 points to distance a little more from St. Scholastica since there will be 2 more points on the line between the teams later in the season up in Duluth. The more deserving team won both nights plain and simple.

They showed some fire very late Friday and carried it over to a great 1st period on Saturday, but I was disappointed with the lack of urgency and some of the fundamentals SNC displayed most of Friday. A really bad decision led to the OT goal, but if SNC had even ridden Friday's game out to a tie it would have been a stolen point in my book. They just didn't play well enough for the majority of Friday to deserve any points. Scholastica is a team who clogs the passing and shooting lanes, takes care of the front of their net, and just doesn't make bad passes. When Scholastica would have a 2 on 2 they'd at least get a SOG. When SNC did it they would let themselves get ridden out into the corner. Scholastica got a lot of looks on O'Brien from quality scoring areas where SNC got bottled up pretty quickly or the puck got deflected when it looked like they might have an opportunity. One team was just a lot more assignment-sure than the other. SNC gave up space way too often in their own zone where Scholastica closed in quickly when someone thought they'd have some space to work. Allen was fighting thru things on Friday, but most everyone else too often was ridden off the puck to easily.

As far as Saturday goes, I was happy to see instead of sulking about on OT loss they came out with the urgency that was lacking on Friday. They were winning more battles in the corner and had a bunch of shifts where they were able to control it below the goal line and change. The goals were a result of someone working hard to get to the crease. I was as pleased with the effort Saturday as I was displeased with what I saw most of Friday. I liked the move to skate Tabisz at forward with the offense sputtering a little lately. It makes sense because I think their 7th best defenseman is better than their 12 best forward. They got the better of play outside of maybe half of the 2nd period.

Pete commented on the crowd on the Friday score thread and I can't disagree. It's becoming increasingly weak. A few of us can't carry the entire operation. I think the administration is just fine with it though. They'd rather it be nice and quiet. I'm not suggesting a bunch of drunks swearing every other word, throwing things at innocent people, and vandalizing like they do up at Stout, but there has to be a happy medium somewhere.

The crowd isn't going to get any more upbeat anytime soon. The student section has learned to sit on their hands and be quiet to avoid getting thrown out by the AD for yelling anything directed at opposing players, coaches, or the refs. That's a sure fire way to kill student section atmosphere. :rolleyes: (It's also taught students not to waste their time or $ coming to games.)

I hear you. I know you do your part when you're around.

My guess is that the few loud mouths (me included) at the upper levels of the Red line should go over to the student section and get them going. I would like to see the AD kick me out!!!:mad:

I'll paint my face if you get Jim to do it. I just wouldn't want to give up my great seats to sit behind the goal to engage the students.

The best seats are behind the goal.

Hey - we kick in what we can down at the blue line in Section E; my best complement came from when we were over at Stout and the lady in front of me turned around and said wow - you are really loud, and I said thank you!
I agree it's disappointing we have a student section that can't be students like at other schools/rinks, but it is what it is.
The CSS team looked great last weekend - just shows the NCHA still has some very competitive teams.

Respectfully disagree. I can't stand sitting behind the goal. It takes the entire far zone out of play.

Absolutely. I always have to adjust my perceptions when I'm seated someplace else. I love watching the way the goalies play, the action behind the net, and the way the offense/defense work the play from side to side. You can see enough at the far end, although its a whole lot better sitting in your teams offensive end for two periods.

Tim D. announced during today's broadcast from Moorhead, Mn. that Kurt Astle (F) has indeed returned to the SNC program, joining our second recruit from Sweden, Carl Ekstrom (D).
Ekstrom was on the 08-09 roster for D-1 Union College.
Both will be eligible to play shortly.

I think those two guys can play as soon as classes start.

That Saturday game made me nervous as heck. It had the feel of what I call a "c'mon guys!" game where they were just letting a lesser team hang around who ends up tying it. A blemish to St. Johns really could have hurt them in some common component comparisons if they end up needing Pool C. Good to see them explode late. Great production by the 4th line this weekend. Probably the biggest positive out of the weekend.

NCHA rules require them to wait until the start of the 2nd semester.

NCHA rules require them to wait until the start of the 2nd semester.

That is a relatively new rule (or interpretation of the rule), and is the same as the NCAA rule. Before the NCAA allowed transfer students to play as soon a the semester/quarter had ended at their original school, thus allowing a player to begin play during the semester break. Now they have to wait until the first day of classes at the new school. I find it interesting that if Football starts before classes do at a school, freshmen and transfers can play from game 1, even if classes don't start for a couple of weeks (this arises a lot with West Coast schools on the traditional quarter system, which starts typically the third week in Sept., or for those few remaining schools on the tradtional semester system, which starts about the same time. That's somewhat inconsistent. (NCAA, inconsistent :eek: )

SNC doesn't need him. Thanks for the rumor, though...

It would have been a great luxury having a guy with LaRose's numbers and talent according to some, but oh well.
