The 'Nooks are coming off of a split with Soo Tech, the 'Cats coming off a huge sweep of UNO. Can the 'Cats keep rolling, or will the long flight and tryptophan comas work to the advantage of the home team? And, will we ever find out what a Nanook is??


Discuss.

Here's my insight:

Last week NMU was ranked one spot behind UNO in the RPI. Said school obliterated UNO. This week NMU is one spot behind Alaska.....

What a great effort to come from behind and sweep a good team at home. I have never seen the team play this well in my time at Northern, and I sure as hell want to see this continue!

And to BWK and BB; after all that whining and complaining after the BSU series, do you see that they are now the #1 team in the country in the PWR and RPI? Im glad you two morons have finally shut up by the way.

Since the 'Cats are bussing to GB on Wednesday and flying on Thursday, I don't think we'll have to worry about tryptophan comas :) Bus/plane legs, maybe. And jet lag. Oh, the jet lag.

Let's sweep!

That also includes a sweep of Huntsville...

Alaska wins just because of this video.

I say Northern on friday, Alaska on saturday. Just seems to be the way things are going right now! Should be some good hockey none the less.

The Cats have a chance to carry this confidence and momentum to Alaska. The time to play hard is now. Congrats to the Guys wearing Green and Gold.

LETS GO CATS

With the way we are playing recently I don't see any reason why we couldn't take two. A split is probably how it shakes out. I'm just happy that we are finally playing up to our potential. The sky is the limit from here on out! Nothing would make me happier than flying back to Detroit to see them at Ford Field!

The way the nooks play on Fridays I don't think NMU even has to show. Isn't weird that both Alaska teams lose on Friday and win on Saturday. I hope the nooks are well rested from the two weeks in the lower 48 and are ready for a talented and hard working team like NMU.

The week has finally arrived, and now my excuse to bolt from this tiny frozen water rationing village at the mouth of the Yukon River has arrived! Weather looks to be ok for flying this week which means I should be in Anchorage Wednesday afternoon, and Fairbanks late Wednesday night! AHHHH Hockey, Thanksgiving, and the ability to drink alcohol all in the same week! If anyone ends up in a coma it's going to be this guy! Now if only my hard hat makes it to Juneau today so I have the necessary equipment.

I still think NMU needs to focus on the Nooks. The team needs to continue the momentum, Play 60 minutes of hockey, win the small battles, control the puck, and be physical.

We usually do the splitsville thing. If the Cats play like the team they are capable of being and give 110% effort it will be close, possibly we could pull this weekend off--it would be fabulous......

LETS GO CATS!!!!

Great job this weekend! I say we take 4 of 6 possible points if we limit the penalties we receive. Should be an exciting series going into December. I like the 7 new recruits recently signed. Congrats to Facca having a big part in recruiting a great class of future Wildcats. Another Vigier, coool! Hopefully Stephan can produce like his cousin, Wildcat goooal scored by #21 Vigier II! Go Cats!

I don't know what the nook fans in Fairbanks are thinking about this years version. I think alot felt that the nooks should of sewpt either BG or LSSU but came away with splits, losing both Friday contest and coming back literally(LSSU) on Saturday to win. I would think both games will be low scoring physical games and that it could all come down to either goaltender getting hot. Good luck nooks.

Sad news. My Puckhead hardhat did not make it to my traveling partner's house in Juneau on time, and as a result I'll have to make a new one when I get to Fairbanks. I guess you just can't trust a woman to mail such an important item. ;)

I thought Friday's LSSU vs. UA game would be defensive and low-scoring and then a shootout happened. I now have no idea what to expect this weekend except me being tired on Monday.

Northern is coming off an 11 goal weekend. 10 of those goals came in the 2nd and 3rd periods combined. Not sure what to expect from the offense, but keep an eye on Hanson and Smith. Both of them seem to be getting the puck rolling, and something tells me that Brown isnt far behind and will be finding the net some more.

Billy Smith is likely out until at least the Minnesota trip. He had his knee scoped today.

:mad: He was having a great season so far. Hopefully this shows some of our depth and we can find someone with that upbeat tempo to get the momentum going.

You mean his knee? Too bad he couldn't make the trip back home, I bet his family would have come to _airbanks to see him play. He must be a senior this year, no?
