    It's an a absolutely awesome move, and something this program needs; a coach, and team engaged in the community.

        @kclarksieben: Mankato City Manager, Pat Hentges, vowed to shave his head, if bonding bill passes and civic center is funded. Hope to see a bald Pat soon!

            Well earned all around on the awards. There were several times this year it could have fallen apart, but McInnis and Lehrke didn't let that happen. As for Gervais, I thought he was our best player for the last 6-8 weeks, and the best PK guy I saw on any team all year. Kudos to the freshmen as well. Can't wait for next season to start!

                Anyone aware of the reason that Friday night games are now going to be at 7:07? Not a big deal, but just curious as to why.

                  No idea, but thanks for the link. Didn't know the schedule was out. Surprised to see Princeton on there. I'd almost forgotten they even had D1 hockey, and now I've heard about them twice in 2 days.

                    Hmm. I'd always assumed that the reason for the later Friday start was to give people time to get home from work, have dinner, etc. before heading to the game. I wonder if it will affect attendance?

                      Glad to see the "House of Horrors" will be undergoing a change. That 8-7 Purple Mav victory over the Pioneers still is indelibly
                      etched as one of the strangest and most unsettling memories--Unbelievable!

                          I remember it fondly as well. Not too many people can claim they were still there at that point though.

                            I remember that night very well. Was living in California at the time and was listening to Sully on the computer. As each goal was scored my yelling must have gotten louder, and after the winning goal was scored, my wife was thinking I had a heart attack

                                Me neither. I don't turn them off either. I was at that game and it was truly a sight to behold. Never forget it.
