Looking at the score, must have been a pretty good game. Any body see or hear the game?

Wow, is the middle of the CCHA pack ever a cluster*k.

According to the broadcast last night, Walt's telling the boys that this could be the biggest game of the year to this point tonight. It boils down to us needing 3 points and winning the game outright.

It would have been really nice if NMU had held onto that 3rd period lead last night..but at least they salvaged the SO win. I believe i speak for the vast majority of the Soo when i say we are hoping for a regulation 'Cats win tonight.

It was a closely contested game. However, way too many penalties were whistled by McInchak and Miller. There had to be less than 5 minutes of 5 on 5 action in the 2nd period. At least 95% of the infractions were called by McInchak.

UA at times seemed to control the flow. Of course being shorthanded 10 times as Northern was makes it difficult to dictate play. The stick holding and hooking penalties the Cats took have to be eliminated or they'll be lucky to finish 8th. However, the elbowing call on Kaunisto right after NMU's 2nd goal was bogus. Even Walt hinted that on the post game show. That set up UA's 1st goal. Walt indicated that since the CCHA has been emphasizing contact to the head infractions, the officials will call anything remotely close to the head. Kaunisto's check was clean. Unfortunately, this is the CCHA.

It really is, you need to get momentum going for the final few weeks, and thats something NMU hasnt done all season. It be nice to come off a 5 point weekend into Ferris who isnt playing as well anymore.

Its also big due to the standings. NMU has 25 points, in 10th place. With a win tonight, we could possibly move into a tie for 9th (if Michigan loses to State), but only be 4 points back of 4th place. The time is now to move.

I posted essentially the same thing on our season thread last night; tonight is as equally a big game for Alaska. We're one point out of fourth, and UNO, OSU, and Notre Dame are all either one or two points back. Should be a good one tonight.

Sorry Kujo, I keep allowing myself to believe year after year that things will always be better the following year. Im finally accepting the fact, Dad maybe correct. I guess I have been doing it since the end of the 1999-2000 season. Actually we were alot closer to a bid from 2000-02 then the last several years. Oooo well its always nice to see NMU play in Detroit!!! Go Cats, we can always take 6th place again!!!!

While it doesn't ease the pain of no NCAA visits, there is some pride in knowing just how many NMU players continue on in professional hockey, and there seems to be a few more now than there was when I was enrolled.

We also don't have a coach who is publicly ridiculed for the lack of development of draft picks like Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin. There seems to be pride in wearing the green-and-gold that continues on after they leave.

These guys know what being at the Joe means; and I'm sure they want their season to go deep into March just like the rest of us.

I agree. From a fellow Laker fan, please win tonight NMU! Where's the 2nd half surge the Wildcasts usually have? Good luck!
