Just glad Regula is going to be ok.

I would trade all the high round draft talent we have for some high character 4 year guys that play team hockey that make the players around them better. We are all thrilled when they make an individual highlight reel move, but they donít do nearly enough to make their teammates better. If theyíre just here to impress scouts and move on to the next level, please move on now. Otherwise, commit to the team and making it better each shift. Iím not a scout of any sort, and thereís a lot of potential out there. However, from what I can see now not one of our superstars has any chance of stepping into the NHL anytime soon if at all.
Emberson is the best defenseman on the team. Always in the right spot and aware. He's a joy to watch work.
Agree pp was terrible.
Tony ripped Lebby in post game for sure.
They say Regula's been released from the hospital so it's not as bad as originally feared!
I also wanted to say for my part how much it was appreciated the genuine concern shown by the student's, fans & players while he was down. A number of students were holding hands and looked to be almost in tears.
Thank's for showing class for our injured guy!
Just one game.
I guess thatís right. The hit was careless more than malicious in my book, so Iím okay with it maybe being too light of a suspension. But added time was just.
I thought Caufield was much better in his own zone, and without the puck last night which was good to see.
No getting around the fact that The Hammer was pretty bad on a couple of those goals. I thought he handled the puck with his stick much better and made better decisions with the puck, which has been an issue for him at times, so that was something.
Turcotte just seems to be struggling a lot of the time. Wasn't great at the WJ's, wasn't great much of the last dozen games. A lot of talk about how much pressure he puts on himself to perform. He's so gifted. It seems like he just needs to slow down the rush to the NHL and play hockey here for awhile and give himself a break. I thought coming in that Holloway would be the guy to struggle making the jump a little, but he's looked completely at home after the first half dozen games.
One thing that happens with these top NTDP guys is that as soon as a couple of them make the NHL, the rest of them all feel like they have to go there right now too. I think Frederic left in part for that reason and it certainly wouldn't have hurt him to stick around another year.
I also think Turcotte could benefit from being benched for a game or two. If the coaches want to show they want to build a team-first attitude, then they need to demonstrate that no one is bigger than the team, even with a high draft pick next to their name. Plus, at this point in the season where wins are likely only going to shore up momentum for next season, not actually get us into the tournament, we need to start looking toward actually building a team atmosphere for next season and start looking past the hot shots who seem to have already started looking past the Badgers. Honestly, Iíd have both Brock Caufield and Dominick Mersch playing in every game here on out, because theyíll both actually be here leading the team the next two seasons.
One other point of kudos - During the injury, I want to celebrate Dhooghe and Baker for leading the Badgers in taking a knee in front of the bench and being reverent to the situation. I was slightly disappointed that Kalynuk didnít join them there, but most of the team followed suit. If Emberson doesnít leave this year, I could see him with an A and Baker and Dhooghe in co-Cís next season treating us well.
Last season Rhols ran both the PP & PK and it was atrocious! I just wish he'd give Killler the PP again as well. Rhols is a great coach and my biggest fear is you'll poach him from us as his roots with your program run deep but Miller is the better specialty coach.
Wisconsin Hockey: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 WE WANT MORE!

I'd love to be the fly on the wall on what Piotrowski may have said to his officiating crew about keeping the game under control tonight. At least these guys weren't former CCHA refs which could explain their deficiency.
I love seeing letting them play as much as the next guy but they have to balance it with the current goal of player safety so it should be interesting to see how tonight's game compares with last night's on how far the player's will be allowed to push things. I just hope they don't blow the whistles for every little ticky tack thing!
With Linus out and after the loss, the lines are scrambled again tonight. Putting the B1G 3 Frosh together to start a game for the first time this season.
Holloway - Turcotte - Caufield
Achan - TPB- Lindy
Zimmer - Baker - Dhooghe
Mersch - Messner- Other Caufield
Kalynuk - Emberson
Miller - Vorlicky
Ess - Inamto
Jacky Bear gets the net.
Let's Go RED!!!
Jackie B. showing exactly why the 2nd assist exists!
Three goal periods are pretty cool!

TPB with the perfect tape-to-tape pass right to McCormick for the goal lol.
A wins a win. They needed it. Ohio State didn’t seem all that interested. On to Michigan St. They won’t just hand us points, it’ll be a battle.
