        I'm not sure they have an offense.

        UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

            Darn, don't wanna make anything fun for you. Ok, here ya go.

            UAF has won most of the Governor's Cups for the past decade, but I just looked at the win/losses between these two schools. The UAA website would only let me go back to the 06-07 season, but UAA won 20 games to UA_'s 24, and there were three ties. That's not really dominance when you look at the overall picture. But the last few years the Nanooks sure have had the Seawolves number. I don't see that changing this season.

              Well the green and gold looked better than I thought they would. Very impressed with St Onge and Wicks!

                The only goal UAA scored was a giveaway. Aside from one opportunity on a defensive breakdown while killing a penalty and that center ice gaffe that have a dude a breakaway, UAA couldn't generate anything offensively.

                Nooks played well enough to win but after they got the lead they were more interested in preserving it than building on it. Too passive in the 3rd period.

                Also I think UAA needs a puck freezer.

                  For anyone at the game, how would you rate the overall game day experience? Did they have anything for speakers where you could actually hear the PA Announcer and music? Was there anything available for food besides popcorn and hotdogs?

                    Nanooks cannot just keep holding on in the third period when they have a lead. Same thing happened at Michigan Tech, and one of these times they wonít be able to hold on long enough. We need more offense in second half like we did Friday at Penn State.

                      Experience was terrible. It was cold, the speakers they have at the end of section E basically deafen anyone nearby it but it canít be heard towards the earlier sections in A/B/C apparently, seating is uncomfortable and the netting made it difficult to see play. Didnít attempt to get any food so canít speak on that aspect but yeah I wasnít impressed.

                          The seam of the net and the top of the glass is in the sightlines of most every seat for a lot of the ice. It's pretty bad.

                            Totally agree! It made for very poor viewing. Almost looked blurry.

                              I thought UAA pretty much controlled play the last half of the third period. Shots were pretty much even by then, but they were outshot badly in the first.

                                Absolutely embarrassing that with an entire offseason they couldnít at least get some speakers that are arena quality to put in the ceiling. Alaska is always an example of how to do everything the worst way possible for sports events. Just unconscionable how ridiculous some of the decisions are. Itís like, do the people at UAA realize this isnít at mites tournament? You canít operate a NCAA D1 hockey game like that. Thereís no hope for these people.
