    As someone who has interviewed coaches before and after games for years, I knew exactly what you meant, and got a good laugh out of it.

    It is amazing what coaches really say after I turn off the recorder. (Or better yet, in bars over a beer ... or two or three.) Drives me nuts.

    It just shows no one out there has a sense of humor. Lighten up, Francis.

    From my post on the Plattsburgh thread ...

    Cardinals bounce back, defeat Middlebury - {Article courtesy of the Plattsburgh Press-Republican 11/30/2014}

    After suffering its first loss of the season, Plattsburgh State bounced back Saturday to claim third place in the PrimeLink Great Northern Shootout.
    Kevin Emmerling and Dillan Fox each tallied a goal and an assist as the Cardinals defeated Middlebury 4-2 in a nonconference men's hockey game at Chip Kenyon Arena.
    "I think we took care of the puck in our zone, kinda supported each other better, and it led to a little bit better offense," Fox said. "But I think it was just kinda emotion-wise we wanted to bounce back from (Friday), and I think we did a good job of that."
    Concordia became the first team from the West Region to win the tournament by edging Norwich in a shootout. The Cobbers' goaltender, Alex Reichle, was named MVP.
    Looking for a better start after falling 5-1 to Norwich on Friday, the third-ranked Cardinals (8-1) took an early lead against Middlebury. Emmerling's shot slipped under the crossbar at 10:34 of the first period.
    "Scoring first isn't the end-all in hockey, but it's really big to get that first goal," Plattsburgh coach Bob Emery said. "It's really helpful and loosens guys up offensively, and I thought that was the case here (Saturday)."
    In the middle of the second period, Middlebury goalie Stephen Klein reached out to try to poke a loose puck away from Fox, but the junior forward corralled it and slid it behind Klein into the open net. Three minutes later, Klein had almost no chance when Connor Gorman took a nice pass at the right side of the net and banged it in for a power-play goal and a 3-0 advantage.
    Plattsburgh pushed its lead to 4-0 in the third when Anthony Calabrese sent a pass from the right circle over to Michael Cassidy, who steered the puck into the net. It was Cassidy's team-high sixth goal of the season.
    The Panthers climbed back into the game with two power-play goals in short order — Jake Charles scored at 13:43 and assisted on Vincent Gisonti's goal at 15:23.
    "I think taking penalties at that time, as soon as they get one (goal), the emotion kinda goes their way," Fox said. "But I think we did a good job. (Spencer) Finney made some big saves for us there at the end. They have a good power play, so I think they capitalized, but we also did a good job kinda weathering that storm for a bit."
    Finney, who did not play Friday, made 24 saves to improve his record to 5-0.
    "I have to give our goalie a lot of credit. He was really good out there (Saturday)," Emery said. "I think Middlebury played hard; they played well. There were a lot of good scoring chances that our goalie came up big on and gave us an opportunity to go out there and get the lead. And I thought that was key for us."
    Calabrese, a defenseman, represented the Cardinals on the All-Tournament team.
    Plattsburgh ended the game down two forwards. Michael Radisa had to be helped off the ice after colliding with a Middlebury player in the second period. He was on crutches, with a brace on his left leg, after the game, and Emery said it was "too soon to tell anything." Mark Constantine headed to the dressing room in the third with what Emery said was a bad bruise on his arm that would likely need an X-ray.
    The Cardinals wrap up first-semester play next weekend by hosting Oswego and Cortland.
    Klein made 35 stops in the Middlebury net. The Panthers (1-3-2) found themselves trailing 3-0 in the second period of both of their games at the tournament.
    "I think (Saturday) when they got the first goal, and they got a couple that we could've made some better decisions on, absolutely, it was tough to play catch-up," coach Bill Beaney said. "We need to be better in every facet of the game."
    Jordan Krebsbach's goal at 4:20 of the third period pulled Concordia into a 2-2 tie in the title game, and the score stayed knotted through a five-minute overtime. Jon Greboski, the Cobbers' fifth shooter, gave them a 2-1 lead in the shootout, and Reichle, a freshman, stopped Norwich's final attempt. Reichle had 26 saves in the game.

    Not looking for a fight, just enjoy pointing out nonsense. Couldn't get to it sooner since I was enjoying Paul Bunyan's Axe staying home another year.

    That sounds like a very good plan.

    Re: Primelink Week is Here

    As I said immediately following the game, that was not the PSU team that is nationally ranked nor the one the Cadets can expect to see in the January rematch at their joint. I really do believe that sometimes it is just luck and timing as much as skill that makes the difference.

    That said, I do recall what Bob Emery had said in a pregame interview article in the local paper and posted by Norm:

    Emery said. “They (NU) really forecheck hard; they cause a lot of turnovers, and I expect them to continue to do the same. I think they’ll have a good power play, so we gotta to do a good job staying out of the box.” (PSU did draw six penalties—one was converted to a PPG).

    "You can always get better,” senior defenseman Preston Kaye said. [I]“Defensively, we can tighten things up, avoid some of the odd-man rushes that we’ve given up. And getting pucks to the net is the biggest thing we can work on. And just getting dirty, grinding, (scoring) some of those dirty goals.”[/I]

    It is almost as if, Coach Emery and Kaye wrote the post mortem on this game 24 hours before it was played—and they will surely "tighten things up", as Kaye put it before the January rematch. Good luck...now bury Middlebury in PSU RED.
