I really respect their program but their fans are coming off like losers complaining about having to play PC at the Dunk. It's like they are building in an excuse to lose and the week hadn't ever started yet. PC hockey plays as many games at the Dunk as the Air Force Academy.
    Hopefully PC learned something from having to sit out this past weekend while other teams controlled their destiny. Could be Hawkey's last collegiate game if the team can't put together a strong effort.

    If PC does get past Mankato I think they match up well with NU.
    Just ignore all that. A lot of fans are just protecting ourselves from the devastation. It's an art that Minnesotans have mastered. Remember, we have the Vikings that rip out our hearts every 7-8 years, we had the first #1 seed that lost to the #16 in NCAA hockey (and the second was just up the road a couple of hours), and we haven't had a major professional sport appear in the championship game/series since 1991 (yes, that's over 100 seasons of losing). It's second nature for us to find some way or reason why we are the underdog.

    I'm hopeful for this team. They FINALLY pulled out a big game this last weekend that was played against a team that plays a heavy style. I'm hoping it was a game that can finally get our boys over the hump of post-season struggles.
    Mess with the bull, you get the horns.

    I think you have a solid team there! I was very impressed with their comeback against Bowling Green. Two goals in such a short time was awesome!!! I have had great times in the past when Mankato has come to RI and find their fans to be great. Looking forward to more of the same interaction with the fans. 👍
