    it's not actually hockey but definitely worth a listen.

    State's two high end talent guys are better than anyone on the Tech roster (Khodorenko and Lewandowski), but they have precious little scoring depth and a struggling PP.

    Lethemon's numbers are good, but he does not pass the eye test. He looks nervous and uncomfortable almost the whole game. Wisconsin hit four posts on Friday night, and missed three empty nets - but all the stat sheets shows is a shutout.

    Just my opinion but if we want to beat Clarkson we have to step up our game some. These games are really big if you ask me.

    I'm not so convinced about Clarkson.

    They've played only two games of their 15 against teams that currently have a winning record, and that puts their strength of schedule at 53rd out of 60.

    Yes, they're 6-1-1 on the road. But their 8 road games have been against teams with a current combined record of 31-58-4 (2 at Michigan, 2 at Wisconsin, 1 each at Union, RPI, Brown, and Yale).

    This is by far their biggest road test so far.

    Marotte has good numbers, heís nowhere near that good, our defense plays heavy and our forwards are all very responsible defensively. Early departures have really hurt us in terms of competing for national championships but we have a pretty consistent program. Brosseau and Egle are great seniors and theyíll play on a line with Josh Dunne (who Michigan Tech recruited) and thatís probably the best line in our league. The 2nd line lately has been Jacome - Tsekos - Callin, crafty skilled line but results are inconsistent. Bottom 6 all can produce but donít usually, they know their role and they play it well. Our PP has been very good lately and our PK is as good as Iíve seen around the country. Iíll be interested to see Bliss, Gotz, Meek, Meek was a former Clarkson commit and we had high interest in Bliss and believe we didnít take Gotz because he doesnít fit our defensive system which I see as a mistake.

    Best of luck, I have a lot of respect for Michigan Tech coming out to Potsdam last year, itís going to be a 4 year thing with Michigan Tech coming back out next year and us returning the following. Itís tough to get NC opponents to come that far, Minnesota State already backed out for next year and in a lot of the B1G/HE/NCHC would never travel to get beat, although I respect Wisconsin for finishing our original arraignment.

    Last year Clarkson's D out muscled us, especially at the end of games. They should be good games.

    I'm excited to watch them. The comments about the top line being the best in the ECAC is important. If you visit from Clarkson, definitely go see the old-time hockey exhibit at Dee stadium downtown. Houghton is the birthplace of professional hockey after all.. Also for me, seeing the Seamen Mineralogical Museum is really cool.

    Tech was the better team, their goalie stole the tie.

    I thought Misiak saw a big goalie in the 2nd too.

    They showed some flashes. Offensively they're a one trick pony. But I will admit it's a pretty good trick.

    Defense is big but got really slow as the game went on and they wore down. How many times did they get beat to the outside in the third?

    Goaltending and a fair amount of luck got them a tie. On the balance I thought Tech shaded the game and probably deserved a W if either team did, but a tie was not unfair.

    Agreed, but I think they were higher skill up front than anyone suspected and I thought also the goaltending on both sides was quite good.

    They were rushing down the ice towards the end of the first to the second and we had no answer. As Joe said, then Tech got the momentum and the tide turned.
    Several forwards were dumping the puck or getting rid of it way too soon in the first and during the Clarkson momentum swing.

    We were buzzing all 3rd period, and had several good looks. Tech showed their speed. It was like dialing a potentiometer watching the swings.

    Clarkson made me nervous, then I am sure Tech made them nervous. That forecheck and aggressiveness was impressive.

    Reitmeier's goal was Jackson esque!!!!

    Should be a great one tonight. We need the W.....

    Well, I was pretty disappointed in the game. We had exactly 2 shots in the last ten minutes. Clarkson is one of the best if not the best, at shutting you down in the third if they have the lead. They did that last year as well. Our energy level was lower in this game I thought than last night. I expected that we'd have put some other players in for this game. Just to keep fresh legs. We are getting better but man it's hard losing like this and I would think the pk needs some real work.

    Aaaaugh! Penalties absolutely killed us. Dirk had a hard time pulling up, at the end of the game. (So did I). I thought coach was actually more centered after the game.

    I think their skill caused a lot of those penalties.

    I agree. I just wish we'd be a little faster on the learning curve. We keep seeing the same loss over and over again going back to last season. MSUm and BG games last season come to mind. Have the lead, and game in control take a dumb penalty and we lose

    It didn't cause the penalty that killed us.
