    Correct, the "up to 5 hours" being the key here. I parked there for the PC/Butler hoops game a few weeks ago and paid $2. Knowing I'd be at the arena for a minimum of 6 hours yesterday I parked in a garage next to the Dunk instead for $15 which I found reasonable, though I'm used to Boston prices so anything else seems reasonable.

    Congrats PC, I'll be pulling for you next weekend.

    You'll be the only one. Because the games are in two weeks.

    PC has played five of their best periods on the year in the last two games. They were the better team on Sunday and need to keep rolling.

    Fnally, this guy is making sense.
    Leaman is not a bad coach.

    Watched every minute of that game, and Leaman had it figured-out, unlike Madigan, who apparently didn't see one second of tape vis-a-vis the Cornell Neanderthal approach.

    A nearly perfect game by PC. Happy to see them advance.

    They had to beat two great teams to get to Buffalo. The next team is ridiculous.

    Hayden remains a weak spot, in my opinion, but if he's on top of his game (with the help of D-men - by merely not turning the puck over in their zone) PC becomes a dangerous team. "Why not us" in Buffalo?

    Good luck! Duluth is a wagon, so I’m sure it’ll be a very tough game, but I think PC can hang with them. It’s been a fun year for the local college teams.

    How so? The kid is the all-time wins leader at PC, shutout holder, leads the country in shutouts and the reason PC wasn’t down 5-1 or 6-1 to Minnesota State due to terrible defense.

    I really like to know why everyone blames the goalie when the defense is terrible in front of him? Every goal he gave up this weekend were defensive problems that no goalie stops. Yes, there are times it is the goalie’s fault but stop giving up a+ scoring chances constantly.

    I just expect better during losses and even wins. I expect perfection too much and the last five periods have been the best they have played.

    The last time PC met UMD, it went to 2 OT's with a typical Duluth ending. Scary team.

    I see PC's Twitter account finally tired of the entire population of Mankato assuming that the Dunk is home ice.
    I almost wish the bracket was flipped to Manchester because social media has been garbage since Saturday.

    Couple of points here:

    1. I always have this disclaimer in my head (if not spoken out loud) - that these are student athletes, still young people (almost kids), that they are there because someone recruited them, etc. Therefore, I hate criticizing and singling out any player (unless it's something other than his performance). The same goes here. I think Hayden is a good kid, and I wish him well the rest of the season, and then onwards wherever his career takes him.
    2. If you are going to blame the defense for the goals that he concedes (and in my original post I said he needs help from the D-men, who need to stop turning the puck over in zone), then you cannot give the whole credit to him for his record(s). I think he was inconsistent this season. As noted in the discussion early in the season, he was on a level or two below last year's performance. On Saturday, I'd say he should have stopped the first goal and definitely the third one (yes, it came as a result of the d-zone turnover, but that was a very weak, back hand shot that barely left the ice, if at all).

    The consistency is the key here. Which Hayden is going to show up against Duluth? I hope the "good one".

    The good offense that saved Hawkey's bacon against MSU and buried Cornell needs to show up and not the one that disappeared in the last game against BC.
    Also, we have a power play now? Groovy.

    All in all, even taking into account the preseason poll, PC is somewhat of a dark horse here. I think Duluth should be more concerned about PC than the other way around.

    Statistically I feel like PC matches up well with them. In many ways they were close. For some reason I thought UMD had more bigger players than just Tufte (and one other I believe listed 6'4 or taller). Also, a thought from the weekend games and the success on the power play: they seem to benefit having larger ice space to work with at the Dunk than at Schneider and I think it allowed for wider passes and just more open space to cycle around. They did many things very well compared to the frustration of some things during the regular season. Just a lot more of the simple stuff, not getting too fancy with the puck too often, and I had to cringe every time Cornell ran the drop-back pass that didn't seem to benefit PC during the regular season when they did that.
