You'll be able to get further once the game is closer to getting started. ;)

That's why U never give up!!! Great come from behind win!! Foooooo and Wilkins with the clutch goals!!

(On a side note, I bet the announcers are kicking themselves for writing off a ND win and placing them in the championship game vs. Western Michigan after the 2nd period :D)

Matt Wilkins - tought, gutsy ..... decided Union was not going to lose ..... took resposibility. This type of play is why we won the Championship last year. Wilkins and Novak are my favorite players because they remind me of the character of last years team. When the going gets tough ....

Gutsy is the best way to describe tonight's effort. Things looked grim, despite outplaying ND for most of the first two periods, but the boys found a way to pull it out in OT. Looking forward to seeing how we match up against Ben Barr and Western Michigan tomorrow.

I'm hoping that this game could be the tipping point as the season moves on. We outplayed ND most of the game but had little to show for it, yet we persevered and were rewarded. Could be something to build upon. Short turn around but no excuses.

A great gutty win!! A little sloppy at times but a consistent effort against a pretty high skill level team. Nice to see Wilkins get a couple big ones. Will need more scoring from Wilkins, Pontarelli, etc. if the ship is going to be turned around. Time will tell if this is a turning point of sorts, though I always think that better team building happens on the road.. tomorrow should be a very stern test, as my take is that WMU is better than their record shows. Congrats to the team & coaches!

With the short turnaround it will be interesting to see if any fresh legs are inserted into the lineup this afternoon. I'm expecting a real battle, it would be huge to keep this modest win streak intact going into a crucial two game league road trip next weekend.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sak starts in goal. OT game last night, shorter than usual turnaround today, Bennett's not afraid to use him, he's performed well when given the chance, and it's as close to a hometown game as he will get with Union. Sak grew up only 90 miles from Notre Dame.

I'm expecting a real battle

We are going to get one. - Forget their record

Their Strength of Schedule is 9th because they have played:

AF when it was ranked
Nebraska-Omaha which is now 11th
Denver which is now 10th
St. Cloud which is now 16th
Miami which is now 5th

Our strength of schedule is 31st

They are a devistating third period team, getting outshot and outscored in periods 1 & 2 but pouring it on in the third period
Outshooting Opponent 136 to 84
Outscoring Opponent 13 to 8

PP and PK about equal
6 months older, 10 lbs heavier

NCHC - best conference this year.

Goalie and goal tending is solid but I would assume not as strong as ND

We need to bring our shoulder pads and scoring and we need 60 minutes to win. No letups ... there is hardware on the line here ... trophys and player awards.

Makes sense to me especially if Sak's parents/family are there. Our coaches scouted WM yesterday afternoon.

Tapper said on post game last night that WM either didn't or wouldn't share game tape.

It's too bad Pieri didn't make the trip. Sak and Stevens were both out to lunch today.

How much did the day game after a night game effect our team? Where is Cruice? That was painful to watch, hopefully we have a solid week of practice before the big conference games. The boys don't have school to worry about.

Travel, short practice week, quick turnaround, all these are excuses that RB won't accept. Let's hope they learn from this and move on.
