    The low camera was a little rough and the St. Lawrence announcer was so-so. He had no idea about the 3 on 3 OT.

    Odeen is really playing well.

    Any word on how long Bonjo will be out? I saw one article where Rand said he'll be out for "a bit". But nothing specific.

      All I heard on Bonjo was probably the same interview from Rand where he hoped not a month or two or the entire season. TJ has also not been on the ice for a few games , nor has Rasanen. Metsa also went down last game and hobbled off the ice. Not sure if he returned before the end of the game. They are definitely a bit banged up. Hopefully they can get by St Lawrence Sunday. Clarkson in next week for 3. They need to get 2 of those I would think.

        Rand has never disclosed details on any injuries so we may never know until they're back on the ice. With nobody on campus there's even less chance of someone knowing someone who knows something that might make it back here.

        The team seems to be gelling together a little more each game. If KP stays on his game and nobody else goes down they should be fine.

            He's turned into a solid D-man with an offensive flair. He's definitely upped his game this season.

              How did SLU look, Gate has them six of the next eight games.
              It all starts with the goaltending.

                SLU looked very good and were ready to play. They never let up and skated 60 minutes. What they lacked in skill they made up for with desire. Much improved over what they were last season. And their goalie was absolutely their best player on the ice.

                  Nice to see Jayden Lee on the ice, big loss last season . . . he creates space and enables good things to happen. Glad he is back. Metsa is a gritty kid, tough defender albeit smaller in stature, but he plays Rand's game and has that big shot capability.

                      Think this was a big weekend for the boys. To get 2 of 3 from a very good Clarkston team is big. Plus it seems like some of the top players on the team went through some ups and downs and came out on the positive end. Have to believe these are big parts of the kids growth and will bring dividends down the road. Shortened season, the team is still finding its identity...yet very positive weekend. Rand's "character first" approach consistently pays off.

                        Agreed on the big weekend. They could have mailed it in when Tufto went down (still trying to figure out that non-call) but hunkered down and gritted it out. Having him come back was an even bigger boost. The kid is also on fire!

                        Smilanic seems to be coming into his own, and what more can be said of De Jong and Burghart? Metsa, Chorney, and Lee on the backend are playing great as well. I'd like to see a few more guys get their games going (Leah and Brind'Amour come to mind) but overall they seem to be coming together. Just need to clean up some of the defensive turnovers.

                        Other the the 2 soft starts (Fri & Sat), Petro has been solid between the pipes. He won us the game yesterday and gave us the chances we needed in the other 2.

                        When these guys find their stride, watch out. They'll be fun to watch.

                          There is so much character on this team. From Bonjo going down to Chorney sitting in the stands for 2 years then coming on strong. Tufto is a fantastic leader by example. Get a little secondary scoring, clean up the d zone....I agree, could be very interesting. And.....No one will see us coming

                                Slu with another upset win.....cats and dogs living together. Been oversaid too many times, yet a crazy season. Think with Petro, Odeen leading the charge its going to be interesting. Great to see Skyer back on the board. This team has depth, and look at the stats. Their top players are also top players in the country. Lets stay healthy, love to get Bonjo back....this is a team to get excited about. Wish I could see it live, yet happy the boys are doing what they are doing. I watch a lot of college hockey, Notre Dame/MN replay this morning. Our guys are there. And Petro, can be the difference. We haven't seen his best.
