A Preview of What's to Come?

Sigh. We lost our exhibition game to Toronto. Embarrassing.

Is this a preview of what's to come?? No. I'm sure Coach Russell was just seeing what a lot of the freshmen are made of. Goaltending was the difference in this game. Nolan turned in a .8125 save percentage for the night while Brownell, Toronto's goalie, was able to manage .976, despite our best efforts to lower that.

The Huskies were also not physical enough. There were a few hits, but not enough. We need someone to step up and act as a Batty. There just wasn't the jump in their skate stride like there should be!

The passing looked pretty sloppy at times. It was definitely frustrating to watch. Luckily it's only the beginning of the season. Luckily that game didn't count. There's some time left yet to get to where we should be.

And our powerplay? Ugh. There really isn't too much good to say about it. There were 2 times of a minute or more of 5 on 3, and we did NOTHING with it.

Hopefully we'll be looking a lot better next weekend. Key to beating NMU: FINISHING. Let's work on finding the back of the net!

That is an awesome picture. You should given him a white shirt though so he can double as a Lions fan.

Look at the Bright side of it you guys wont finish 10th. Actually I believe that MTU has the highest number of Upper Classmen in the WCHA so I wouldn't take the Real Huskies for granted...

I do have one question for TECH fans; who is going to be the go to scoring guy on the team this season? Someone asked me that question and I didn't have any idea...

Wah wah wah, my something hurts.

It's just an exhibition game. Save the dissapointing rants for when we blow a 5-0 lead in the third against eNeMaU. MTHB is going down the tubes :)

If we score 5 unanswered goals against NMU, I will do something goofy with what is left of my ever-thinning hair. I think I'm pretty safe though
