Tech Blog Up and Running

Alright, people have been telling me that MTU needs a hockey blog. Well, here it is. Sure, it's pathetic right now, but we'll see how it goes. I'd like to get more writers for it, but again, we'll see how it turns out. Since the season is nearly over for the Huskies, this blog isn't going to go far for the remainder of it. Next year, however, I hope this is big!

Now to get to hockey talk - this weekend, the Huskies will be playing their last regular season series for the 2005-2006 season. They find themselves in Grand Forks to take on the UND Fighting Sioux. Tech, who is 7-21-6 (6-14-6 WCHA) are looking to spoil home ice for North Dakota, who are 21-14-1 (14-12-0 WCHA). Chances are looking pretty good that Michigan Tech will finish 8th in the conference this season, which is quite the improvement from the 10th place they had been becoming very well acquainted with for the past two years.

In the two teams' last 10 meetings, the Sioux hold a slight edge, winning ten games to the Huskies' zero. North Dakota is the only team that Coach Russell has yet to get even a point from. I'm really hoping it will happen THIS WEEKEND, as I'll be there! It'll be my second visit to Grand Forks and 3rd and 4th times in the Ralph Engelstad Arena. Hopefully I enjoy the outcome a little bit more this time around.

Bare with me as this hockey blog gets up and running. I'm new at hockey blogging, and blogging altogether. I'm going to be looking for more writers for this blog as well.

I'll still sign that puck for Skworchinski. He pretended he didn't want my autograph, but we all know the truth. Call me Tyler!

Did you have to look up the spelling of his name? I'm pretty sure you didn't get it on your own since you can't even say it.

Since I spent all night looking down at you, I figured I should look up something.
