So I am thinking the following: either the emergency goalie was inadvertently left off of Friday's card. Penn State did not get the waiver in time from the NCAA for Friday's game. The student could not miss class on Thursday and Friday and therefore had to miss Friday's game. Or lastly Leonard's injury is significant and is going to redshirt. Penn State is scant with some details.
Thanks to Oggie for some on the spot reporting. The Bothun fan just happened to come and watch Penn State and felt comfortable enough to approach the Penn State players. Interesting. Brenneman could easily play a fifth year and work on her Master' s.
No use going over the 7-0 loss as that is even to much woulda coulda shoulda for me.
In game two, the first goal was on a player's first shift, that's the player that sat out game one and Fidler suited up. Fidler sat the second game. I was only listening to game two so I am not really sure of playing time distribution.
No goals in the second period.
In period three, I did find those two goals on Wisconsin twitter and you have the soft goal which was a flat shot on the ice in the nearside post ( announcer said that is easily coachable and correctable) and on the third goal,two players were on Watt and they both left her leaving her all alone in front of the net.
Now on Wisconsin, there maybe to many players to mark but one would think that Watt would get extra attention and obviously leaving Watt is a no no. Don't know which of the two players had primary responsibility on Watt. But, with video that is correctable.
Point is Penn State can build off of game two and maybe as Zed says getting 40 saves against Wisconsin will do a whole lot for Burke's confidence.
