May I be named the official UW thread starter? Pretty Please? Haha. Seriously, though, this is a very important series. SCSU is ahead of us in the standings because they have more conference games so UW has their chance to neutralize their lead. I'd be content with a split as it would put us on track for home ice in the WCHA tourney, but if we want to win the McNaughton a sweep is necessary. Should be fun. I'll be there Saturday in my usual seat location if you care to share a few words with me.

I am comfortable enough in my masculinity and sick enough of my less than stellar gas millage of my current car to ask this... Where do I pick up the keys?

Like I said, it will be waiting for you on Dayton Street. The keys will be in it so you will be all set for your long drive back to St. Cloud after a rough series.

Only if there is an Aqua CD in the player! :p
In all seriousness, are either game going to be on tv?

Looks like Friday is only available via Big Ten Network webcast.
Saturday is on Wisconsin Public Television, no idea what that means for up in Minnesota.

It's like ESPN 360, in the sense that you use a computer. Unlike ESPN 360, you have to pay for it ($5 maybe?), and the quality is hit or miss.

I'll be at the game, or I'd happily stream it for you.

Our guys looked burned out tonight, we could really use that bye week this week. I was hoping that this would be the year we get a win or two down there. Now I have no idea what to expect.

We are going to find out real quick just how mentally tough this team is. If we go down there and lay two eggs then it is going to be another year down the pooper. BUT if the guys rally together and make up their minds to go down there and steal some points that would be enough to make a believer out of me heading into the bye and then kato and the playoffs. Especially after losing like they did tonight.

These games are going to define who the Huskies are and what they could do in the postseason.

Big games for Wisconsin. Certainly, they have the advantage in recent home games (I'm too lazy to look up the exact numbers, but I know UW has had a very nice streak of points at home going for them [please don't hold that against me, I hold that as common knowledge]), but SCSU has so far this year proven themselves to be nobody to be easily dismissed; they took 3-of-4 points from UMD earlier (granted, they were at home,) and split with Wisconsin, 4-1 apiece in St. Cloud. I just hope the team that played against the Sioux on Saturday shows up against the Badgers on both days, but I know better than to assume that. :p

If it's anything like past years, it will be a very close series with Wisconsin somehow able to eek-out points against a very good Husky team. I would be satisfied with 3/4 points, but of course am hoping for the sweep, considering recent history. Anything less than 2 points would be a major disappointment, at least in my view. SCSU has to prove that they are among the elite in the WCHA, whereas Wisconsin has to assert that they absolutely deserve to be where they are currently in the national polls. (Or should I say "Poles," as they really don't matter :) ).

This should be a very close series, but I am optimistic. I can't wait for Friday !! I think Wisconsin sweeps, but wouldn't be surprised at all with a split.

Yeahp. If SCSU takes more than 2 points this series, I think they just might get that first NCAA win...

Wisconsin has scored 13 more goals than SCSU on the season and given up 15 less goals in 2 less games played. UW is clearly the better team so if the puck bounces our way I like our chances for a sweep this weekend.
