  • LETS GO IT'S GAMEDAY!!! Look its most likely that we're going to get smoked. But we have a great chance of pulling off the impossible.

    How fitting is it that tonight's theme is star wars night. The evil empire is coming to town. It's too bad Darth Sidious (Jerry York) isn't there like the old days, but regardless the energy has got to be there. If Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star, then we absolutely can win tonight. I agree with Norbert, we have to play smart and stay out of the box, penalties is what killed us last time we played BC. But I believe seeing BC the first time we now know who we're up against. We don't need to sweep, but take at least 1 this weekend. GO CATS!

        I typically look forward to playing BC because regardless of the outcome it is fun to watch. Both teams like to skate, very little if any clutching, grabbing and clogging. This weekend is different. The skill/speed differential means that the first bold will happen only if the 'cats do the second bold. Trying to skate with BC will result in hooking, etc. calls.

        Go 'cats. Beat BC. Sieve!

        • Could not agree more Darius. My very favorite team to play, even though it is our toughest opponent. Woke up feeling a one goal victory for night. But we’re is my man Conner Sweeney? Injury? Does the foreshadow underplaying a scrappy forth line?
          Save your gas money tomorrow, major retribution! And poor Moose will probably get the start.

          • Defense is going to have their hands full with Cutter Gauthier (29 goals) and Ryan Leonard (23 goals)

            • Looking back at the box score from the 6-1 loss.
              - we outshot BC
              - took 9 penalties (BC scored 4 power play goals)

              Pretty simple, stay out of the box!

                As much as I root against them, pay attention when that line is on the ice. Very special.

                edit: the Freshman line is Gabe Perreault, Will Smith and Ryan Leonard with 55 goals, 91 assists and 146 points. BC thread is reporting Perreault is not playing tonight. Gauthier is a Sophomore with 29, 19, 48 in 31 GP. 11 Freshman on the team including goal keeper Fowler who is statistically top 10 nationally.

                • Darius, it's insane to find that kind of production from underclassmen.

                  • Right? It is not an accident. They played on the same line in the USHL, on the USA National Development team and on this year's gold medal winning World Junior team. Ridiculous.

                      • Like the energy so far, getting out of the defensive zone pretty good as well. Quickly answering BC’s first goal was big.
                        GO BLUE!

                          Absolutely! That BC goal could have been deflating.

                          Pretty goal for Straskins.

                              and, the SOG’s, e.cat! We are dominating again in that department.

                              • 25 years. Natalie asked him what that means. He said it “means I’m old”. Damn that was a great year.
