    The wake-up call may have done some good, here. I think our guys were served a heaping helping of "You've read too many of your own press clippings" this past weekend.

    I heard Coach Blais also be less than complimentary about Kirk Thompson's goal-tending efforts this past weekend on local radio, which buttresses my ongoing belief that Thompson's days playing meaningful minutes in goal for us are numbered.

      Not a good sign. Do you know how many goalies Blais threw in the Red River?

        I consider it a good sign since I don't think Thompson should have started a single game in goal this year, to date.

          Maybe, but both weren't good this weekend. So if Thompson was allowed to start this weekend I don't see why he wouldn't the next time.
          tUMD is Jan Brady per Brenthoven. Whew.... thanks for clearing THAT up.

            Who IS in goal tonight will tell me a lot about how HCDB is really viewing the goaltending situation here. He has also spoken of giving Blankenberg a start, but that was awhile back, now. Can't imagine he'd now do that in a league game (particularly since we are currently 0 for the season in league play) although home would be easier than away.

            Goaltending has been and is still is my biggest concern about this team for this season with opponents shots on goal against us disparity creeping onto the radar. Because, if the goaltending isn't there, then the SOG issue will ultimately spell disaster.
