    WisconSIN's 3 highly rated freshmen will be fine. This season is disjointed so it's not surprising that teams seem so out of sync.

    So ARM if I'm reading this correctly you don't think that they've been the model of consistency?

    They have gotten nice contributions from 5 of the 7 and you can see why Murphy was the top ranked recruit. No question she is a goal scorer but I have been impressed with her passing as well. Cherkowski has fit in nicely as a top six forward and Nicholson and Dunne have done what's been asked of them. Knew Nicholson would be good but have been pleasantly surprised by Dunne's skating ability and her versatility. Audrey Wethington has been good as well adjusting to a role on the lower lines. Just hustles every time she is on the ice.

    Minnesota is voted in as the new no. 1 in this weeks poll. Meh...I don't think they've played well enough for that ranking. They might be the third best team in the WCHA.

    Lots of sloppy play today but that's to be expected when you play three games in four days against the same team. They did a good job in gutting it out and getting the three game sweep. Next up: the BADgers in Madison.

    Better 2nd period today as Minnesota adds to their lead with a goal. 3-0 now.
    Good to see them strike so quickly right after their would-be third goal was waived off due to goalie interference.

    After 1 period today Minnesota leads 2-0. Two very nice goals by #9 which were set up by #18. Those two looked very dynamic out there.

    So there was improvement! I'm glad I didn't see Friday's game then.

    So there is a tinge of hope for UW next week. I was thinking MN was going to throttle UW. What I saw out of UW in the first period yesterday was truly awful for UW, most in the O zone, and apparently Friday was about the same.
    Sure there is...Minnesota is vulnerable to heavy forecheck pressure on their defensemen and they are prone to making bad turnovers when they are in the offensive zone leading to odd-man rushes. Case in point yesterday...Zumwinkle makes a very bad decision near the SCSU blue line that turns into a 2 on1 for SCSU. It's how they scored their one goal. Stuff like that can be fixed for sure but it hasn't so far.

    Thing of it is, there really isn't a team that has separated from the pack this crazy mixed up season. I have streamed some of Northeastern games and I think they could be the one but they have had some struggles as well.
