Why doesn't the WCHA do a best of 3 in the shootout like the NHL does?
I thought they were wanting to shorten the game time,not expand it . With the two overtimes and a shootout , they have added almost another period to the games.
Check out the Laker Hockey Blog, it's good for you! https://lakerhockeyblog.com
Anyway, just stopping in to see if there's any chatter about the big series this weekend. Good luck, and let's see some exciting hockey!
I believe the Lakers have never won in Mankato during the regular season. They won a playoff game there a few years ago but have lost every regular season game.
Any reason why Laker Hockey Talk podcasts have not been posted since November 1? That is quite disappointing. Hopefully this week's Laker Hockey Show will be posted eventually.
Bill Crawford extremely critical of the officiating tonight.
To have a chance tonight, they need to stay out of the box and hopefully score first (or at least don't fall behind by more than a goal). All 3 games they've played against the Mavs this season, the Lakers have fallen behind 3-0 at some point in the game. The Mavs have outscored them 6-0 in the 1st period in those games so obviously the Lakers need to do a better job coming out of the gate. The Mavs are too good of a team for the Lakers to keep trying to play catch up on from more than a goal down.
Personally, I would like to see both teams awarded a point at the end of regulation, and a 3rd point decided by a 5 min OT, then a 5 min 3v3 OT, then a 3-rd shootout.
See, as a game I have no problem at all with ties. But college hockey is as much a form of entertainment now as it is a game, and the many casual fans out there crave the excitement of a win. You know me well enough to know Iím in the Taffy almost every day, but the many casual fans around the Sault choose a Laker game over usually 2 or 3 other events in town on any given weekend. 65 minutes ending in a tie wouldnít give them a good reason to come back for another game.
