of course they are building a quality program there, but until they win, they aren't a powerhouse...see dirty's post ;)

Yeah, I know what you mean.

Today is the Huskies' fifth game in six days, so I don't expect them to have much left in the tank against Klagenfurt.

I think no matter what happens today, getting a couple of wins against professional teams is a confidence boost for the season, and a very good experience for MTU.

I think the Huskies have opened some European eyes about how strong our game is at the collegiate level...

Yeah, I may do a spit-take if we go 3-2 over there. In the end though, I like how more than two guys have been contributing to the scoresheet. Ultimately, assuming we can get the PK cleaned up this year and get our goaltending on track, it is some semblance of an offense that will be the next step in making us competitive within the WCHA.

Our goal tending needs to not only be on track, it also needs to be consistent

That's what I meant. We know they are capable of doing the job, but they will have to do it almost every weekend.

The rest of the team taking fewer penalties this year would help them out too.

I am still confused about what it means when the first number in the team's record is the same as the second number. It is such a foreign concept in Tech fandom.

What'll really blow your mind is if the first number is larger than the second number.

That's not even German, you moron. It's like Danish or Finnish or something.

Word out of the paint store is that she's obviously been in the back room, hitting the 'thinner. :D

For those who didn't tune in, EC KAC defeated us 7-2. Tech goals were from Olson and Seigo (PP). Roughly translated report from the Austrian league site mentioned it was our fifth game in six days, and said we looked tired.

For having to play five games in six days, I'm pretty happy with 2-3 against a bunch of AHL/ECHL equivalents. Do I think this will translate into success in the WCHA this season? Probably not.

It's taken three seasons, but I've finally learned to set the bar low and simply hope for a surprise. :o

Hopefully it was a fun experience for the team, got them loosened up and ready to compete, and perhaps their overall performance caught the eye of a couple potential recruits from that side of the pond. :cool:
