  • Well that was unfortunate. We have to figure out this power play. It's just a bunch of standing around and playing catch. NMU moved their feet. We did not. Cost us the game.

    • We had it won but we covered the point very loosely and on another goal we covered our man as if skating next to him was all that was required. Should never have gotten to OT and then to give up a shorty like that! ugh. Basically a give away.

      • It really feels like the massive power play failure at the beginning of the 2nd period tonight will go down as the exact moment our season ended.

        • Good to get the bounceback W tonight going into a bye week. Need to get healthy and work on the PP.

          • Sucks losing to NMU, especially how we lost, but the win on Saturday was nice.

            The good news, Mankato was swept by FSU, we are in the mix for home ice, and #16 in PW all while the D is held together with athletic tape.

            Joe sounded very upbeat about the team on Saturday. Might have been the first time all year. For a rebuilding year, I'll take where we are at the almost halfway point.

                For me that pair of games is the shock of the season and the first sign of a possible changing of the guard at the top of the nWCHA / CCHA. Over the last five seasons what were the odds that ANY of the three following statements would have been true after a given weekend?
                • Mankato getting swept (by anyone)
                • Mankato getting swept AT HOME
                • Mankato getting swept by FERRIS?!?
                Is this a sign of things to come, or just the wake up call that puts Mankato back on their usual track to another conference championship?

                • MN State was due to return to earth for a bit. They finally graduated McKay, along with four senior defensemen and a senior forward who all played big minutes and in big situations. Nathan Smith also turned pro after a huge junior season. They've built a great program and Hastings is a great coach, they simply lost way too much experience and talent all at once and they are not a magnet program for top draft picks to replace all the guys who graduated or signed early. Even after getting swept by Ferris they still have two games in hand on both Tech and BG, though the next part of their schedule gets harder (@BG, host Bemidji, then @NMU to start the new year). They could definitely pull it together and still be in the mix for a regular season title by the end of February. But...let's hope not. ;-)

                      Didn't like the smell coming from all the meat & poultry processing mega-plants????? If you would've gone south to Sioux City you could have indulged in free samples of Blue Bunny ice cream at their factory.......

                      • Saturday's game at LSSU will be carried LIVE on FoxUP in the central and western Upper Peninsula.

                        Incidentally, happy birthday to the UP, which was incorporated into the Michigan Territory on this day in 1836.

                          Was UP kind of part of Wisconsin Territory before this?

                            Short answer, No. The UP was never part of Wisconsin.

                            Longer short answer. The original Michigan Territory (established 1805) included the eastern UP and Toledo Strip. As the US expanded land claims, along with Illinois and Indiana becoming states, the Michigan Territory kept expanding to include the entire UP, most if not all of modern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, along with parts of North and South Dakota (1833-1836). The "Toledo War" and why they hate Ohio State (1835) during Michigan Territory's pursuit of statehood lead to Michigan "giving up" the Toledo Strip and receiving the western UP as a compromise. (At the time Toledo was an important port.) A byproduct of the Michigan Territory's pursuit of statehood was creation of the Wisconsin Territory (1836) out of the lands Michigan didn't claim in their statehood application. Michigan became a state in 1837.

                            It is easy to see why Western Yoopers or people looking at a map would feel differently. The same could be said about other US areas that looking at a map, make no geographic sense as to why they aren't part of another state. (Panhandles, Northern MN that has no land connection to the US, the Delmarva Peninsula,...)

                              As a native Toledoan I can honestly say Michigan got the better part of the deal.

                              The Toledo war was caused by a mapping error. The border between Michigan and Ohio was to be taken due east from the southernmost point of Lake Michigan (now Gary). Turns out in the late 18th century everyone thought the the southernmost point of Lake Michigan was 20-30 miles further north than it actually was so when the final survey was done the "big oops!" was discovered...the Toledo strip was north of the newly surveyed line. If you look closely at a map you'll see the MI/OH border is slightly angled. That's the result of the Ohio guys redrawing the border to put Toledo back in OH. If you follow that line through Indiana you'll see it ends at the southernmost point of Lake Michigan.

                              tl;dr version: Toledo sucks.

                              • Michigan did just fine losing Toledo. Particularly after the full extent of the copper and iron reserves generally known to be in the western UP became public knowledge, and mining it became a major economic driver for the rest of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

                                Let's Go Huskies! If this team is serious about remaining in the hunt, this has to be a six-point weekend.
