More game-tracker watching for me tonight. Hopefully we will see some more tough defense, I'm sure Alaska will be hungry for a win tonight.

Side note: My previous goalie comment wasn't a vote of no confidence in Connor, but rather an acknowledgement that Cody clearly stole that game for us.

Don't worry... definitely understood your point and it's a tempting argument. But as 08 pointed out, Rico doesn't seem interested in setting aside the rotation until playoff time unless one of the two has a string of bad outings.

I didn't take that as a slight to CK. It seems like we have this discussion every year, lol. And you are right, Cody was fantastic last night.

What I'm watching for tonight is the tightening up of the back end. The offense is really going to gel as the season goes along. While it's frustrating to see such offensive talent, I think it's more a matter of guys learning to play together and their roles within the offense. What worries me the most are the terrible mistakes that are being made in the back end. They are making major turnovers that HAVE to be corrected.

And many of those "terrible mistakes" are coming from upperclassmen... THAT is what worries me the most. The Spinell turnover that resulted in the Nanook goal was brutal.

So good. So good. So good.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to watch the first period and beginning of the second but made it home and got the Alaska video feed up right after the McKenzie PP goal (a PP goal!). I thought the team looked much better tonight than they did on Friday. On Friday I feel like we won in spite of ourselves while tonight was a well-earned victory. Cycling the puck pretty well on PP's and even during 5-on-5, and definitely better at getting the puck on net. Still too many penalties, though. I missed the two majors/DQs... were those good calls or was this officiating crew going a bit overboard? Some of the penalty calls I saw later in the game didn't look like enough to warrant a whistle, particularly the roughing call on Coleman followed by the boarding call on Alaska's Enders, but that's just based on an internet feed. Reichard looked good in goal again tonight. Apparently Knapp is a bit under the weather.

We welcome the Wolverines into Steve Cady Arena next week. A road sweep in Fairbanks is nice, but I have a feeling Michigan is going to be a whole different story, even if we are at home. Frankly, I'd be happy with a split. Four or more points would be very exciting.

This weekend will definitely help us confidence-wise for Michigan. Still a bit worried about all of the penalties, I think we have already had more game disqualifications than we did the entire season last year.

I missed the Toronto misconduct, but Czarnik pancaked the Alaska player pretty badly. Had to be called, and he knew it right away as well.

It's going to be a big series next weekend. I know the students will be ready. I wonder if tent city is going to make its annual appearance?

WHY AREN'T WE WINNING?!?!

and don't give me any crap about "but the game hasn't started yet..." I will not accept whining from proud Miami fans...I simply will not allow you to sound like a pathetic Steelers fan incessantly dialing whine-one-one.
