But today will be "blue" vs "red."
    Lottsa Blue there today.

    Also, I always find it strange that so many people consider Cornell a "dirty" team when there are actual dirty teams in the conference (like say Dartmouth). Neverending reputation I guess.
    What we saw was not clean play. cheap stabs after play, elbows to the head seemed to be a specialty in the corners. There were a few I really don't understand how the ref didn't call them. I get the intensity and the let them play thing but there were at least 2 really nasty hits from behind right in front of us. Our guy was facing us and the Cornel guy slammed him from behind complete with the head snap into the glass. Not OK. Wouldn't be OK if our guy did it either.

    Watched just a little of the Goofs and the ugly gold hats. Both sides seemed like they were big, slow and no flow. Left before it got interesting. Got back in time to see the goal that wrecked the OT game I wanted to see.

    I was thinking the same thing. I stayed for the second game and it looked like the Gophers were going to run ND out of the building. Once ND tied it up they played well. Anders Bjork was on a mission. The Hawks better be ready to go.

    I now get fired up every time Ryan Lohin jumps over the boards the same way I do for Joey G.

    Did you see the game today? I would wager that's what people are talking about, particularly Lowell fans.

    Physicality and obstruction penalties have been a staple of Big Red hockey for nearly 2 decades, so that sounds about right.

    That's a good way to put it. And if that's how they play that's fine. If this were early in the season with the interferences we saw called they'd have 30 penalty minutes

    I thought the major was a angry play and contact occurred but not serious to me. Not a real headshot.
