Thought I'd try to start a thread. We should sweep like last week and the week b4 that and b4 that one. And we know how those went.

Just a correction, you didnt sweep. In the eyes of the NCAA, you tied twice. Im the eyes of the CCHA you got 4 out of 6 points. :p

Congrats last weekend though, your team has some great young talent on it. Best of luck, until we meet again at the Joe?

I didn't say we swept. I said we should have, like we should have the last 3 weekends but ended up w/ splits.

Ah, I get it now. Anyone have any insight on Western? Ive notice them making headway in the polls a few weeks ago, but that has since disappeared.

You're gonna have a really tough time with the Broncos. They're playing some great hockey. You won't be able to score enough goals to even keep it close. I really hope you don't think you have a chance against a team that has gone 1-7-2 in CCHA play.

:p

We should "sweep" the Broncos like we should have "swept" BG. Don't underestimate the Broncos; I remember sitting in the stands at the Carlson almost a year ago watching the Nooks fall asleep in the 3rd against WMU, and losing in OT. No weekends off in the CCHA.

Every team thinks theyíre leaving winnable points on the table. Is this a sign of parity or mediocrity? And just what does that table top look like through last weekend?

Iím not sure what this means, but I found it interesting. A quick look at where a team won points (read across), or where a team has dropped points (read down). UM and FSU have played eight games, everybody else ten.

All I know is the Nooks canít look ahead. Western has been in almost every game and we could easily lose two on the road if we donít work our butts off. We have not looked particularly good on the road or on the smaller rinks. Western took five points from LSSU and recently tied Miami.

But the Nooks need to finish strong these last two series before their dreaded month long break. Letís go boys. Donít leave any gas in your tank or points on the table.

Go Nooks!

The one thing we do know about Western is that they can score, and right now our defense and goalkeeping haven't been at the top of their game. Lets hope Scott has a good weekend and our young players play better on their second road trip, because this is the end of the "easy" part of our schedule, it really gets tough from next week on to the end of the season.

Not much of a thread, I guess.

The 'Nooks flight out of Fairbanks got cancelled yesterday, and the team was basically a day late getting into Kalamazoo. No Wednesday skate as a result. Hopefully this won't affect the guys this weekend.

No kidding.

I was at work and didn't get to listen or really check in on the game, but I can't say I'm surprised. WMU's given us fits in the past, they're in the cellar, which seems to mean an automatic win for them, and it's a Friday in CCHA play. Anybody who saw the game able to give any insights? After BG and LSSU I can't imagine that the Nooks wouldn't take WMU seriously.

Figures. I was mentally prepping myself to kick start my yearly *****fest about Culhane and they pull off a win.
