    This is an absolute embarrassment. They canít coach the talent they have and they do not instill any discipline.
    Terrible: F-
    Everything in its right place, Wisconsin Hockey National Champs!

      Welp, didn't get to watch the game, but looking at the stats it appears the refs earned their money tonight. I also see my favorite defenseman took a five minute major with one second to go in the 2nd? I won't pass judgement because I didn't see it, but it sure sounds like more of the same undisciplined crap. SMH.

        I've got to say there's a lot to like and admire about your program and it's rich history. I wish our administration hadn't ignored our program and it's needs for years and years so we could have had a storied history!

          This crowd tonight PROVES there is still interest in Badger hockey. What an exciting, emotional, exhilarating evening!

          Then 7:00 rolled around and put a pile of steaming schitt on the evening. I know a couple weeks ago I said I was done going this year, but I HAD to go tonight; it's history.

          Now (like the `18-`19 Badgers) I'm done. My hockey cash is firmly planted in the hands of the Wild & Blackhawks.

                    The NHL is fantastic to see in person. Those teams are close to Madison. I go to watch who they play AGAINST! My Avs aren't in my backyard.

                        I thought the same thing, but you can get hurt playing in the AHL too.

                        What is the deal with all 5 players ending up within 25 feet of the board on one side of the rink? It cost them in OT last night and goal # 2 was the same thing tonight. It can't possibly be a strategy to outnumber the opposing team to get possession and totally forsake covering players on the other 3/4 of the rink, can it? I can't believe the backside W and D are that dense that they keep getting sucked too far away from covering the middle of the rink, that's hockey 101. They do it continually, it's easy to see from the 3rd tier. It's just unbelievable. It's also easy to see from the 3rd tier the pk box breaks down so easily. It goes from a box to a kite to 4 water bugs shuttering around uncontrollably.

                        I admit I teared up when Mark mentioned his Dad tonight and that his number is hanging in the rink with his Dad's name. I wish I was around for the Badger Bob glory years.

                        On the way home I was pondering who else should have their name in the rafters. It has to be super special and limited to just a few to keep it that way. I thought of Jeff Sauer and possibly Mike Eaves. Besides his UW coaching pedigree, Jeff did so much for the Sled Hockey Team and he also coached the deaf team too I do believe. Eaves won titles as a player (and was a prolific scorer) and coach, but didn't have the international and NHL success MJ did. Maybe there is a pre Dean Anderson goalie that might qualify. Richter was only there 2 years.

                        I'm not sure about how I feel about advertising incoming recruits on the video board between periods. I don't think it respects the current players, no matter how good they are or who recruited them. It says don't let the door hit you in the *** on your way out to the current guys. It seems like a desperation move to show a sold out building what is coming.

                          I admit I had similar thoughts when they first showed it last night. And I still somewhat agree. But, since they had a set of next yearís recruits actually there yesterday, and another today, I think they are balancing the new reality of college players jumping from commitments on a whim and trying to over-impress them when they are in the building. Iím guessing they had similar thoughts about how the players would receive it, but figure the pros for the recruits outweighed the cons on the players watching it. I do wish they had run it during intermission rather than a TV timeout, because having the current players watch it on the bench was a bit awkward.

                            Agreed! They did that last night and tonight and both recruits looked uncomfortable.

                            And Tim I agree we week you on the collapsing to low. It's leaving to many great shots and goals for the opponent and leaves the goalies high and dry.

                              Warms my heart a bit to see Brian Posick tweeting about #1 UWSP finishing the season undefeated after beating #3 UW-Eau Claire 7-1. Now, if only Wisconsin could get to ruling D1. Disappointing loss in front of a big crowd.

                                Ewwwww. The Avs were much more fun to watch when Patrick Roy was the coach and Minnesota was running them out of the building. Now they're a one line team that is just as bad as Minnesota and Chicago. I will make my way to the X one day when Minnesota is good enough to warrant spending $100+ on a ticket. Probably about 8 years from now after the rebuild and Parise/Suter are retired.
