      It was fun to watch in the living room lol.

      Pretty weak sauce that the refs wimped out on getting that offsides called denying us of another shutout. That one ref was really really tick tacky. I didn't think the penalty shot call was a good one. He made calls that they don't even call for the women's games.

      • Very different "bored by the third period" experience than the past several seasons.

        That was an ***-kicking.

        Decent crowd and nice to have Howie and a bunch of the goalies back although I wonder how many in the crowd even know who most of those guys are. Many should have gotten louder ovations considering they backstopped Nattys.

        When did they put the NHL jerseys up around the first level? I don't recall seeing those before but we generally have seats in the 200s so are not down there. In 119 last night. Nice touch and even guys who only got a cup of coffee in the "show" are featured.

        Quibble of the night... crowd trying to do the 1-2-3-4-5 WE WANT MORE thing and the morons in charge of fan engagement are trying to make us care that a Jonas Brothers song won some vote for a 30 second clip to be played. Just get out of the way - we know how to do this.

        I have to say it seems like the canned stuff is less than it was a few years back.

        • As per TM: "The Badgers took over second place in the Big Ten — one point behind leader Michigan State — and reached 18 points one third of the way through the 24-game league schedule. They finished in last place with 18 points last season."

          Let that sink in. I dont like digging up graves, but how much talent was wasted through bad coaching? Goodness.

          • Friday night was not well played until the third period, but they found a way to win. OSU is bad. They have no scorers. Saturday they turned it on which is fantastic. Stats to come later.

            This week with Penn State coming into town, we get to see Aiden Fink and Noah Grannon. Two recruits that were Granato / Oz recruits. Fink is leading them in points as a freshman and Grannon is out playing senior Souliere in GAA and Save %.

            I dislike Gadowsky and PSU, so I am hopeful for a sweep.

            • How many goalie alumni were in this past weekend? Was Jim Carey or CUJO in town?

              I despise ped state so i’m hoping for a sweep and really looking forward to hearing PB and Howie calm the game. I’ll make sure to have a dollar ready to put on my tv to “buy a goal” if necessary!

              "but you're not as confused as him are you. it's not your job to be as confused as Nigel". Tap pt 1.

              "I think it's ****ing stock. What--? Which part of that is unclear to you? I think it sounds stock to my ears. I mean, do you want me to write it down?" Tap Pt. 2

              Who???! So What!!!! Big Deal!!!!

                    Dauber was there and I feel like I remember Melanson too. Couldn't make out the others beyond those that you mentioned.

                    The audio on the PA seems really muddy this year and a little low on the volume.

                    • No Carey, Richter, or CuJo. I do t think I saw Behrend either.

                      They did such a poor job introducing them, you only noticed them on the ice when they were leaving and had to shoehorn in an introduction after the game started in the corner by the boards.

                      And no acknowledgment of who was there online or anywhere that I can find, so I couldn’t say for sure who was there other than the more recent ones that I recognized. Maybe on FB or one of the other socials that I don’t use.

                      Cons and Elliott for sure. Melanson and Dauber and I think Derkson. I want to say one of the old guys was Wayne Thomas, but I’m not sure.
                      If you want to be a BADGER, just come along with me

                      BRING BACK PAT RICHTER!!!


                      At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

                      Canned music is a pathetic waste of your time.

                        Agree, it was very ham-fisted and I felt they could have done a much better job.

                          Last year we were at 7,855 / game (with even less butts in the seats), so averaging 1,100 more per game and this will get better.

                            Thanks. I forgot Dauber was there too. I wish the UW had made a bigger deal about this. Maybe start the warm-ups earlier and give these guys 10-15 minutes of highlights and interviews.

                              It's sad they botched this up. It was cool Hastings said in the presser that UW used to be known as "Goalie U". He's buying into the legacy nicely.

                              I am harboring negativity towards Mr. Fink this weekend. I was highly anticipating him arriving for multiple years and then to get the rug pulled out like that is not a good feeling. I'd love to know the backstory.

                                I agree with you. Maybe Fink didn't want to work the D end or didn't want to compete for playing time? Who knows?
