Suppose itís about that time. The 2019-20 season has finally arrived 2 weeks ago!
Summary so far:
Maybe not good offense.
Definitely not good powerplay
New shuffle, though! Helmets now. Iíve been saying that we needed a change from the puck shuffle for years.
Anyway, hopefully we score more on this guy than the other times we played him.
Looks like the game will be on Dish tonight 412-30. Probably on Direct TV if on Dish.
All in all seems like not a bad weekend. Got a split on the road. Jumped on them Saturday with 3 early goals and then kept it up rest of game winning 5-1. Scoring is coming from more than just the top line this year so far which is promising. Although hopefully the top line does score a little more frequently going forward. Didn't watch either game so I can't comment on individual play. Big home weekend coming up with Cornell coming to town.
Cornell is probably gonna be a real grind for us. They swatted the U-18ís away fairly easily. I know we managed to sweep them last year but I think weíre a different team in many ways than last year even though personnel is mostly the same.
Oh! Also, lines were different Saturday. Lewandowski and Saliba swapped spots. Will be interesting to see if that is maintained. Based on production from the forwards thus far, I see no reason not to begin moving pieces around.
MSU picked up a verbal of a top 16 year old forward Nikita Tarasevich. https://mihockey.com/2019/10/recruit...ichigan-state/
4.5⭐️Nikita Tarasevich to Michigan St. Strong, quick & difficult to defend. 2003 works to get to the net & can do it w/skill or strength. Patient & makes smart passes. Quick release with the snarl to play in tough areas. Three zone F w/high ceiling.
Sounds like a huge recruiting win for Cole and hopefully a sign of many more to come.
Anyways, Iím not sure if this was mentioned in the old thread but apparently Munn will begin selling beer for the games starting this weekend. Iíll definitely be having a couple to celebrate but an $8 pint of Labatt probably wonít be on my on my radar for long.
At least, thatís my predicted price.
The beer was a fake rumor.
As for the game, we played well enough to win but for an unacceptable number of penalties.
I thought the powerplay looked pretty good at times so that is nice.
But we canít blame the refs as we had a good number of powerplays of our own. A few of our penalties were definitely of the dumb and selfish variety, as well.
Nevertheless, I think we were much better than either of the exhibitions I witnessed in person. As long as we donít take a step back tonight I think this will be a weekend to continue building upon.
This team is in deep trouble if discipline issues continue. Small sample size, but once again we're in the bottom 10 of the PK. And when matched with six penalties a game, that's not a good combination.
Credit to Cornell for placing the puck where they did, but there's no excuse for a wrist shot from the blue line to make its way into the net, nor their (I think) final goal that went top corner with zero angle. Lethemon needs to cut that off.
On the plus side, the PK continues to look good. Unfortunately that was the only way we scored this weekend.
Go Green! Go White! Go State!

The Krygiers are pretty bad about this. Fortunately, I do feel their play on the ice has taken a step forward this season. They gotta get those roughing and elbowing penalties under control.
Note: Iím not sure if one is worse than the other so Iím lumping them in as one.
