1) As Krb said, it seems like those three goals are always coming late. At least not in the first period so it feels like the team is always fighting back.
2) We all had very high expectations for this team. I think this team is still a title contender, and maybe even a favorite. There's no dominant team like UWSP was last year or SNC has been in years past. I think this team has as good a shot as anyone, we're just used to our championship teams steamrolling through people like they did in '10 and '17 (and I assume '00 and '03, I was a kid back in the Midwest at that point though). Times have changed.
