    Nice win tonite. Absolutely owned the first period, played pretty even in the second and did what they needed in the third to win the game. It was great to see a fast Sioux team winning battles to get to the puck. And it didn't hurt to get a little puck luck. Sweep tomorrow!!!

    University of North Dakota Fighting Lucky Bounces would be an appropriate moniker tonight.

    But you really hate to lose one with the potential he has. Here's a quote from an article about him going to Seattle:

    Losing Gropp likely knocked the wind out of some UND fans. He was regarded as the college’s best Canadian recruit since Chicago Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews in 2005. Not to mention, Gropp’s decision must have amped the hate towards the CHL from college hockey fans as they just lost St. Louis Blues second-round pick Tommy Vannelli, who was committed to the University of Minnesota, to the Medicine Hat Tigers roughly a month ago.

    Weak. At least the group of incoming forwards is still quite stacked. Let's hope most of those still end up at campus.
    I'm fine losing him now... its when they decommit right before the season that really sucks.

    And then they threw the lids at cars in the parking lot and invented "FRISBEES"!

    I didn't read the box scores from the weekend. I thought you were saying that Vermont took a lot of penalties. By all means, please give us 17 power play's this weekend

    Agree with this. Got lucky that Vermont didn't burn us too bad with PPG's. Honestly, while I see great potential in this years squad, they are meeting up against Miami very early. I'll be hoping for the best.

Johnson looked scary good. Tambellini looks like the real deal. The others will make life interesting all year. Rocco has a 5 point weekend - and hit 3 posts!!! Drake looked real good, and will be a big contributor. Nice to see O'Donnell play well. Somebody take Pattyn and smack him in the head! That was a real stupid penalty with a few seconds left in the third period and could have cost them the game. If they can't stay out of the box, next weekend could be brutal.

    Just a few other points from last night. Your announcers are pretty good. No hometown bias BS. They called a good game. Also the arena looks great. UVM plays in a quonset hut... one step above pond hockey.

    Unfortunately, the penalty calling always this way in the first part of the season. Boy, watching the blue liners last night really makes you appreciate how difficult it is to control the puck and make that first outlet pass under pressure. With young guys on the blueline and at forward, it can be suspenseful. Vermont was good on the forecheck.
