well this was interesting.

also notice that lucia did not go out for the handshake and the total penalty minutes were only slightly skewed.
You could see the stuff falling on the bench on tv, but at least some of it was after. Whatever cheap shots there were ended up being even distributed.

That part of the weekend that makes me most proud was not actually Fridays's win, but rather the moment at the end of the game when Pearson told the Tech players to go out to center ice and set up the hand shake line inspite of the refs telling both teams to get off the ice and go straight to the locker rooms. Those type of things make me proud to be a fan of the Huskies and a Tech grad.

Go Tech,
Ryan J

Re: Handshake. MNS and I were applauding the refs when they (at first) said "no handshake." We expected another Finley Incident, frankly. However, after reading on the board here about how it went down (it was rather confusing at the game what the hell was going on those last few minutes), hats off to Mel. I hope to see some of you Tech fans in CO Springs in March, otherwise, when MN visits Tech next year....it's on! ;)

Hey, geezer... Since it's less crowded and *itchy over here than in the series thread; I hope you didn't misunderstand me. I think you were just talking about the fanbase in general. I love this series; it's my favorite. And, in case it read differently than I intended it to, I wasn't trying to imply that Tech was a cupcake. I do want them to do well. They're fun to watch. I knew they'd be tough this weekend. They played much better than Minnesota for much of the series.

Yeah, I'll pop off and be a homer Gopher fan but, that's all in good fun.

Good luck the rest of the way!!

From the replay, if the hit by Parenteau that started things happened in todays NHL, he would be suspended for either a blindside hit to the head or targeting the head, either or; so sticking up for your teamate after that is completely justified in my opinion and probably why Muckalt was worked up.

Parenteau didn't play last night.

The guys at fox sports Detroit must have changed. Tech's saturday game vs the gophers was on tv today around noon as a repeat. This is awesome. Now if we can get the GLI on for both nights.

hey mel - never worry about me misunderstanding. I was being a dik over there just for the sake of argument, and purposely trying to be misunderstood myself. I don't blame fans from either side for getting PO'd at the end of that game; and I appreciate the passion that leads to insults. The truth is that I don't really care a lot, and didn't actually see the game but I like the chatter.
I lived down there for 3 years, married a Plymouth girl, and have an appreciation for rabid gopher fans and know quite a few. I also enjoy aggravating the more arrogant ones, much like our own U of M fans.

Tech will win the GLI this year. I'm fired up.

I was wondering what changed, I don't think that was done in years past.

We're not allowed to call WI a mitten, MI trademarked it already. I'm actually trying to do more road games this season and next since it will likely be the last time Tech visits many of these rinks for a long time. I actually got the tough one out of the way (AK) many years ago but now will have to venture back to hit Fairbanks. Duluth, St Cloud and Madison used to be regular stops, but that will be changing now. It sounds like UMD may remain on the schedule however. I'm hoping to make it to UND and CC this season and maybe get UNO next season.

Time and money will tell...

This game with nmu on friday will be big for us.
Also I think other teams to do what minny did tonight. Press hard on the forecheck, try to force turnovers, play very physical.I thought the special teams were a step better this week than last and that is really good, though we took too many penalties.
I want 10 Wins before the GLI.....makes the rest of the year gravy as far as my prediction goes. :) So must win game, although it is anyway for our PWR. ;)
