This should be a classic game! I see Oswego winning 4-2, the 4th being an empty netter.

I remember several St. Norbert fans from the semifinals back in 2007 in Wisconsin. Who from St. Norbert will be making the trip out east?

Yes it was John Whitelaw, hurt his shoulder in the first preiod. This has happened 2 or 3 times this year to him. He did come out onto the bench for the 2nd period but did not play. I think that the way the period unfolded there was no sense in putting him in the game.

Selleck, I saw coming back to the bench one time wincing in pain and shaking his head. I don't think he came back out after that. Not sure what the problem was.

hope both players are ok and I'm sure that they will be ready to go on friday.

Having seen Adrian play both teams, ....(although SNC was webcast...with the odd tramnsmisson issue)... , I would summarize keys to this game as follows:

A) Offensive skills.............Osw +
B) Team defense*.............SNC++
C) PP............................Even
D) PK.............................SNC +
E) Depth..........................SNC +
F) Goaltenders .................KGT OSW +(.5)
G) Discipline......................SNC+
H) Coaching.....................Even
I) Team speed on big ice ....Osw +
J) Game breaker...... one player....Neil Musselwhite +
K) Home Ice......................East

My prediction>> Oswego 4-2......possibly an ENG.
Team speed and crowd support on the big ice might trump depth and defence in this one.
This is how I see it.....,and I hope I'm wrong.

Wish I could make this game. I live in Oswego, obviously a Laker fan. My cousin is a St. Norbert grad. We have a nice bet going on that will cost one of us dinner for our families the next time we get together. I won the last bet, hoping it can happen again. Go Lakers! And if they can't win, go anybody except Plattsburgh!

I haven't seen SNC but they must be deep if you feel they are deeper than Oswego.

Particularly the way Oswego's 4th line has been playing. Singleton-Kelly-Mather have been the most impessive line in the playoffs for Oswego.

I've heard a bit of rumblings about that. My friends in the alumni office say they are working on something for either before or after the games.

Post game "Summit Meeting" at the Press Box in Oz revealed a hold on a local LP establishment for Friday evening 9-11 - subject to change - confirmation later today...

Sellick wasn't on the bench most of the third, and didn't even come out on the ice after the game, so he must have been out of his skates by then. Didn't see anything major happen while he was on the ice? While it would be nice to see the SUNYAC MVP out there next weekend, it's almost embarrassing to say that the other three lines have improved so much that I wouldn't be too worried if for some reason he couldn't play.

My guess is Whitelaw could have returned if needed- at this point Gary can pop Jon's shoulder back in while juggling a bowling ball and chain saw ;) .

I admire your optimism, but I can't see anyone beating either one of these teams 5-1 at this point in the year...

I'll take any win of any kind. My gut tells me Oswego is the best team in this tournament, although in a one game format the best team doesn't always win. I'm confident SNC will play well and not make many mistakes. Hopefully it's enough.

Particularly the way Oswego's 4th line has been playing. Singleton-Kelly-Mather have been the most impessive line in the playoffs for Oswego.

My analysis was based strictly on their H2H with Adrian, and I realize I'm comparing a January N/C game played in Oswego, to a tournament game played last Wednesday at St. Norbert.


The 4th line you mention may be contributing offensively recently, but they didn't stand out when I watched them.

Adrian played shorthanded for probably 15+ minutes out of the 60 against Oswego and still managed to get 30 shots off, with 6 or 7 good scoring chances.

Musselwhite was clearly Oswego's best player....in both ends of the ice.

SNC had 4 lines that pretty much smothered Adrian's attack allowing 19 shots and maybe 4-5 scoring chances. Then they followed that up with a similar effort against an offensively gifted GAC.

Strong defense and discipline, usually wins.
I'm not sure how SNC's style of play will serve them on the bigger ice surface against a very fast and very skilled Oswego team, so with this in mind I gave the slight edge to the Lakers.
