  • I missed PB and Howie last night and watched the game taped delayed. Are they going to be on tonight as well?

    Great win and fun to see this team play with passion.

    • Listened to PB and Howie in the car on my way home - great to hear their voices!!

      I watched the last period and a half and Penn State carried play for a good portion of those 30 minutes. Too much stick handling in their own zone and at the top of the Penn State zone lead to too many good chances and odd man rushes. If McClellan doesn’t stand on his head on several occasions this turns into an old fashioned 6-5 shootout. They gotta get back to quick tape-to-tape passes in their zone and getting the puck deep when there is a lot of traffic at the top of the offensive zone.

      I still think that Silye is gonna bust out at some point - glad that he got a goal last weekend.

      Love the way that Owen Lindmark plays - tough and gritty with some skill.

      Lets finish the week with a sweep heading into the break!!

        • 14 -4!!!! Holy resurrection Batman. I was kind of irritated that they didn't come back with McClellan, I didn't understand that but that worked hard really well. The change in the performance of the goaltenders is absolutely the biggest part turnaround of the program so far. I think it just reiterates what a pathetic job previous staff was doing. McIntosh and King should really feel pretty stupid for giving the previous staff that one more year to turn around.

          Great to see Strammel heating up, getting goals and assists.

          The penalty kill last night was an absolute clinic on how to do it. To have 11 clears and only 4 shots of goal on a 5-minute major is completely insane. This team is so coached up right now it is ridiculous.

          Paul Brown made a comment during the broadcast where he said the players were getting along really well. I would take that as he had inside information that the opposite was happening in the previous seasons. Negativity breeds negativity and positivity breeds positivity.

          Howie is the best color analyst the planet has ever seen for hockey. Nobody talks about the forecheck or the defensive systems during the game and talks about how teams are adjusting to another team is doing specifically like he does. It is a lost art and it's rather sad.

          • Charlie Stramel has really come alive since being moved to wing. 5 points in 6 games.

            • I didn’t catch the game last night - was it on the B10 channel?

              I’m assuming that the decision to platoon goalies this weekend was something that was planned and not something last minute. The glimpse into the future goal tending situation sure looks good based on the limited sample size.

                The game was on btn+. I think the decision to play Gramme was based on his prior performance vs UAA and PSU’s “fire it at the net from everywhere in the zone all the time” which may lead to burnout?

                i have to to say beyond nostalgia, listening to PB and Howie Friday night was pure gold. Howie’s “shot and a goal” call and PB’s insights are just incomparable.

                …I have a feeling Mike Hastings is going to win 2-3 NCAA titles in Madison.

                • Bad news. Tony Granato shared on Twitter he has non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I hope he has a complete recovery.

                    Oh man, that’s awful - I hope he’s able to fight through this.

                      I agree the Goaltending is the most stunning, but the whole defensive system & philospohy & accountability is so night and day. Remember the countless times Berry, Jurusick, Rowe, Lebedeff, Hayton, Beydoun got absolutely hung out to dry by poor defensive play? Making stops as a last resort can only be done so many times before a Goalie will break down.

                      I always felt like TG was chasing good goaltending and couldnt see that. Time and space, accountability, good backchecking, and taking pride in positioning help create and sustain great goal tending.

You play with the players that want to be here, a player who would choose leave his teammates in the middle of the season isn’t someone I’d want as a teammate anyway.
                          I 100% agree with you and don't want the negative Nancy's around the team. It's still a concern for the second half, and that's all I was getting at.

                            Saturday on the post game with Posick, Hastings said Stramel has earned the right for more minutes and he didn't get them Saturday and Hastings said he addressed it with him after the game and he will be getting more minutes moving forward.

                              Awful news, but good that he doesn't have the pressure of coaching and can focus all his energy on fighting. I pray that he can beat it.

                              • Holding PSU to their lowest two shots on goal games of the year and first time being swept this year was a thing of beauty to watch. Brilliant game plan all weekend and so nice to sweep PSU. Gadowsky is easy to dislike and I love dismantling his all offense gameplan and making them work on the D end, which they hate! Holding Fink to 1 assist was also great.
