Funny, I was thinking that somebody should tell your hockey team that the season has started already? Maybe someone should send an email to Walt Kyle and let him know that he is already two games into the real season?

Sorry, couldn't resist. No hard feelings or anything. See you guys tomorrow night, and hope for some great hockey in Houghton.

Not sure if it's just game jitters from some of the players but the first period is our most penalized with the third being our best.

I'm not nervous yet. One goal games, rallies in the third period, this team definitely is good enough to rack up a long string of W's.

Just gotta shore up the weakened defense.


Here's the breakdown of penalties this season.

Penalties/Minutes by Prd

-------------------------
1st 1/2 3/17
2nd 4/19 2/4
3rd 0/0 0/0

Total 5/21 5/21

Penalties/Minutes by Prd

1st 1/2 3/6
2nd 1/2 1/2
3rd 0/0 0/0

Double post. A good cause coming up for the Hockey 'Cats:

http://webb.nmu.edu/SportsAthletics/PinkExperience.shtml



The Northern Michigan University Athletics and Recreational Sports Department is partnering with the Marquette General Foundation on a fundraiser to benefit the Marquette General Cancer Center. The effort will culminate on Saturday, October 30 with “The Pink Experience,” a day-long event that includes a women’s swimming and diving meet, a women’s soccer game, a walk in the Superior Dome and a men’s hockey game.

All net proceeds from all events will be gifted to the Marquette General Breast Cancer Care program.

The four “Pink Experience” events on October 30 include the following:
...
Men’s Hockey Game vs. Ohio State, 7:30 p.m., Berry Events Center
Cost is $12 per ticket
Auction of pink player jerseys ($100 minimum bid for jerseys)
Chuck A Puck
Pink t-shirts for sale
50/50 ticket sale
Athletes available post-game for autographs and jersey signing

“The Pink Experience” t-shirts can be purchased at all four events, at the Cats Corner gift shop inside the Superior Dome and at the Recreational Center in the PEIF, or at the Marquette General Foundation office (located in the West Wing adjacent to the Marquette General Emergency Department off of College Avenue), beginning Monday, September 27.

For more information on the event, please call the Marquette General Foundation at 906-225-6914 or 866-906-6914, or email mg.foundation@mghs.org.

Did Mingay decide not to do analysis this year? Davyd does a great job but he must have a sore throat after each game. Are you on your own the whole season, Davyd?

I forgot to mention Mark Olver got his first career point tonite. An assist on the Avs first goal against Detroit.

All three guys that were apart of that goal were college hockey players. From Mark's reaction on getting the assist I can only imagine what he's going to be like when he gets that first goal.

At this point I'm flying solo. There will likely be occasional guest analysts. In my five seasons of minor pro hockey I had a color man for home games for one season. Beyond that it was an occasional injured player joining in, so it's nothing new. It just requires some extra preparation time.

After three games, is the freshmen our number 1 goalie?

Why not get the boys from Cat Chat in the booth with ya?? They've seem to do a pretty good job up there covering NMU sports on a shoestring budget with equipment thats about as old as them. Doing a few games with you would look awfully good on their resumes.

For now. I'm sure once the team gets further into league play (November), Ellingson will be our starter (for a while).

I certainly like what the freshman has done so far though. :) It's a shame that the Penalty Kill sucks. Speaking of that, can we NOT use Florek and Spady on the PK for a while? Together, they've allowed 21 goals (8 allowed for Florek and 7 allowed for Spady).

Yeah, I know we're supposed to have our best players out there for the PK, but holy wah, we need to take a break for a bit.

Player Name Pos. pp allow ev allow total
Justin Florek F 6 2 8
Erik Spady D 5 2 7
CJ Ludwig D 4 1 5
Scott Macaulay D 4 0 4
Andrew Fernandez D 4 0 4
Andrew Cherniwchan F 3 1 4
Kyle Follmer D 2 2 4
Nicholas Kosinski F 2 0 2
Jared Brown F 1 1 2
Greger Hanson F 0 2 2
Ryan Kesti D 0 1 1
Phil Fox F 0 1 1
Brian Nugent F 0 1 1
Tyler Gron F 0 1 1

Keep up the good work.

I miss the after game talk with Walt though. Relying on the Mining Journal the next day for Walt's reaction can be an excercize in futility. Especially for road games.

Three games in and this season looks like its going to be rough. I wasn't expecting much from this team what with the departures from last year, but I was expecting a win by now. I mean going winless against Tech is just terrible. FIRE WALT! FIRE WALT! FIRE WALT!!!!!!

Alright BWK calm down, it takes time to develop a good team and i think walt is doing a great job so far, I mean he has giving all his freshman solid playing time. This season is very similar to 2008 and the cats did just fine Then, just give it time.

What reaction are you referring too? I watched it several times on the Av's website and it looked pretty normal to me. Geez give the kid a break.

Are you talking about the 2008-2009 season where the team went 14-15-5 or the 2007-2008 season where the team went 15-16-4 during the regular season? It doesn't really matter, because they are both failures of seasons where the Wildcats did not do fine as you say. As supporters of the Cats, we can not sit back and be happy with losing season after losing season with Walt at the helm. We need a coach who can lead his team to winning seasons on a consistent basis, not just once in a while.

And both times were [ ] to being Pairwise teams to make the tournament.

Along with that, there are at least a dozen guys from those two teams who have gone on to play professional hockey and represent the Wildcats well. How great is that to have alumni that continue to represent their alma mater long after they leave? Seems like Walt's doing all the right things.



You're starting to lose your edge while trolling...

It is so difficult to resist temptation. But getting in a battle of hockey wits with this poster is like getting in an arse kicking contest with a one legged man.
