New blog post. So it turns out that the bottle in Kivisto's hands is, in fact, a bottle of beer awarded to the Tourney MVP. The trophy, was the third place trophy. ;)

Haha, awesome, a third place cup in a 4 team tournament. I wonder if they gave the fourth place team one, too.

Considering the teams above Tech were both first division European pro teams and the one team below Tech was a second division pro team, I think MTU did very well. I doubt any other college team would have finished higher than third in this grouping.

All things taken into account, I think we played pretty well. However, also considering that Kaufbeuren did defeat Linz in a shootout on Sunday, I think a team with better scoring depth (such as North Dakota) could've finished second.

As for the players who will still be with us in October, I have little doubt that some of them will eventually be battling for the ice time that they're simply being given on this trip.

Augsburger is a DEL team from Germany, a league roughly that probably would be slightly below the AHL. Linz is from the Austrian League, which I would put on par with the ECHL. Kaufbeuren is a 2nd Bundesliga team from Germany, which is also approximately ECHL calibre.

Nielsen really took care of business against a 29 year old Canadian career minor league tough guy...

Appears to be true.

I shoulda gone to Ann Arbor. Yeah, they think the world revolves around them, but at least they give a flying fark about their tradition.

Who's doing game updates? Comon' guys!

I hear some crazy drums or something. It sounds like Stomp in concert, but that may be due to the crappy sound. Robo is in net but I still don't know the score.

Edit: An early Vienna PP goal is all there is so far. They said there is about 16 minutes left in the second. Doriott just got a cross check. Tech's third of the night so far.

GOAL!!!!

Kattelus scored and got cross checked like a mofo as it was going in the net. Somewhat hurt.

Goal again!!!! From a 5-3. Kattelus from Cousens, the same as the last goal. Gordic a second assist on the first, I forget the second on the second goal. Gordic just got slashed pretty good, going on the PP again. A short 5-3, too.

Pietila goal!!!!! 3-1. PP of course. Just an amazing amount of penalties being called on vienna. A lot of cheap shots. 1 game misconduct and a couple of 10's and a bunch of minors.

The Huskies will go all the way if they cut up the EERC tree to make hockey sticks.
