    The Beaver Radio Network's Brian Schultz will be in the building. Could always tap into his feed, just like they do in Bemidji on FloHockey.

    The USA Today/USA Hockey top 15 poll has the Mavericks at #3 and the Beavers at #12. The Falcons and Lakers are receiving votes at #16 for BGSU and #17 for LSSU.

    I think LSSU and BSU both deserve bids. Honestly, just watching them, they are both better than Notre Dame and probably BU and a couple of other eastern teams, Uconn and PC in particular.

    I really truly hope that both BSU and LSSU make the tourney, they deserve to. And that NMU doesn't screw this up by winning the whole thing...(Sorry NMU, I'm a Mavs fan.)

    What about with 250 fans? That's what will be allowed, unless there's a sudden change this week.
    No offense to those of you who were there (and I'm very glad the parents are getting to see their kids play), but I consider 250 fans to be "no fans."

    I recently looked at Griffin Loughran's stats and was shocked to see he only have five goals this season. What happened?
    Despite the lack of goals he'll still likely finish 4th on the team in scoring. A few factors:
    Shorter 2020-21 season...
    Made shorter by carry over suspensions...
    Made even shorter by a game misconduct...
    Made even shorter by a coach (unsuccessfully) trying to make his point and not playing him at times...

    You have to be on the ice to put up points. Last year he was 1.05 PPG, this year he is 0.94 PPG. However he played 21 less games this year (stats through Saturday night).

    Last year after he finished #2 in the country in PIMs. (#1 in the country was a teammate.) NMU PIMs are down slightly this year but still a very high 14 PIM per game average. There is playing with an edge and then there is hurting one's team on a consistent basis. You also need to consider the type of penalties he takes. At times a penalty is a good thing if it prevents a scoring chance. However Loughran has a long list of misconduct, game misconduct, roughing, slashing, diving, elbowing, high sticking, cross checking, etc. These are not penalties saving goals. These generally go in the selfish category. Here is a look at Griffin's contributions to NMU's totals to date:

    PIMs PER GAME
    2018-19 2.05
    2019-20 2.51
    2020-21 2.38

    Bemidji wins, they are 100 percent in. Lakers win, very good, but not 100 percent.

    Agreed. They should be in if they win. Likewise if Bemidji wins. And hope there aren't a lot of upsets in the other tournaments.

    I think BGSU losing really hurts Lake State's chances at an large bid. I would think Bemidji is in a better position.

    Quite surprising to me. BG was the better team all season, but not this weekend. Think they're done. That cheap shot at the end probably seals the fate. Winner of LSSU and Bemidji gets in the tourney...Maybe the loser too.
