    Very happy with the result. Woohoo!

    Disappointed that we give up 4 goals on 16 shots. Defense and goal tending was pitiful. This was a rout that we turned into a game.
    Go Huskies!

      I don't think defense was pitiful, there's no way at least 2 of those goals should have gone in, I would lay it on the goaltenders feet here.

        Good to get the W but shakey goaltending doesn't look good. Odd not to have Mitch on the PA. Sounds like he was sick.

        Mel's post game with Dirk:
        Guys we're ready to play and we used our speed.
        It almost went in too easy. Know LSSU will be much better tomorrow.
        We can't give up 4 goals.
        First PP looked great. Gary's done great with them.
        Didn't like goals against. Sure Angus wants 3rd back.
        Liked the PK when it was 6-4.
        Liked a lot of things we did tonight.
        Angus is our guy. Have to be ready tomorrow.

          Tech came out like a house on fire the first five minutes and score reflected it. I seriously thought a Tech forward was going to put an LSSU D-man through the boards in the first couple shifts. I don't know what they did for pregame but Tech was jacked up at the drop of the puck. As Redridge noted "This was a rout that we turned into a game." and I agree. Too bad we couldn't put LSSU away 6-1 or 6-2 because now they go back to the hotel thinking they have a chance if they play a better first five minutes.

          Beef's 3rd goal was quite soft and I get why Mel pulled him, much in the same manner that Damon pulled his first goalie only enough for him to get his head back on straight and then go back into the game. Unfortunately for Tech, Wintjes gave up a goal when Mel did it and the game really wasn't the same after that. You could feel the building let down and the energy never came back. Of course by that point, Tech was playing dump the puck and make LSSU go 200 ft for a goal so I get why some of the intensity was gone.

          Overall a win is a win. Win one more and you get to play a few more games next weekend. That's the overall goal, no matter how it happens.

          Looking at the other games, none of the lower seeds are doing much tonight. I didn't see any of the other games as I am at Tech in person this weekend, but judging by the scores, they look to be every bit as lopsided as the game in Houghton. Nobody is closer than 3 goals to a higher seed team in the first night of games.

              The other guy did a good job. Maybe Mitch wants to step down. He has done it for many years.

                Later in the broadcast Dirk mentioned that Mitch wasn't feeling well and had left, but I agree, the other guy did very well.

                • One of the last things the announcer said at the arena last night after the game was that he hoped that Mitch feels better.

                      Wow, Tech started the game firing on all cylinders.
                      Coach said he pulled Angus to give him a rest, but had to bring the number 1 guy back after the 2nd bad goal.
                      I think tonight will be a battle as the Lakers will be better tonight.

                      Go Tech

                        Will Tech come out with that killer instinct they seemed to have lacked at other times?

                          Remember back saying this freshman class was looking good heading into the season, Reinke, Smith, Gould, Gerrie, and Beretta can play. I am looking forward to the game tonight to see if Tech can match last night's effort. Damon sounded like they did not match the compete after the first 3 minutes of the first and credited his former team for taking it to them.
