After week 2 of the season, the Lakers are still looking for their first win, coming away with a loss and a tie at home against St Lawrence.
Good: tied the 6th ranked team in the country on Saturday.
Not so good: after giving up 2 goals in the first period Friday, the Lakers' pace and the speed of the game dropped off making the challenge of coming back even greater, although they did outshoot SLU both days. The Lakers will want to dictate the pace of the games for next week's series and not be lulled into a pace that is slower than their best.
Great: On Saturday the Lakers played with intensity and a faster pace that they didn't sustain on Friday, and more important McDonnell found a groove in net stopping a breakaway early, and making some big stops during a flurry of penalties to end the third period and in OT.
Regarding St Lawrence: that line of 10-11-16 is really good. I think they got all 5 goals. Their goalie played well, giving up one goal on a tip through traffic.
Alright, Lindenwood on the road next week.
