UND @ Mankato -- Friday Gameday

Recommended Posts

2 obvious things thru 3 games:

1. This team will be fun to watch. They play entertaining hockey.

2. Pinto is ridiculously good.

One thing to watch as the season progresses:  Mismash looks like he gives a rip this year (so far).  Couldn’t say that last year.  Could be the difference maker.

What does a tie against a #2 team do for our pairwise? 

 

 

I would guess no movement for either team.

I thought our goalie and d would play a little better tonight. Didn’t quite expect the offense.

My impressions on this game were mixed.  I thought defensive positioning was pretty good, especially as the game went on.  GT was not great tonight.  Beat cleanly from far out or bad angles a few times.  That needs to be better.

 

Ultimately, a tie on Friday on the road is not bad.  But, that puts more pressure on Saturday.

Didn't get the best game from our goalie on the road and we tied #2 in the nation.

Turn the page, build on that one, get ready for Saturday.

Okay. Watched on FloHockey.....quality was actually pretty good. Announcers were very pro Mankato, but that was expected. Expensive....yes. But much better than watching reruns of the 250 reality shows om TV.

Moved up to number 6. Jumped 12. Not sure why people would think little or no movement.

Didn't see the game but sounds like we really struggled with faceoffs.  That is concerning going forward.

Well UND owned the dot and outshoot every team last year.....so the answer is no.

I don't know where either team was to begin the day, but Mankato is now 19.

When you have a tie in the start of a two game series, it boils down to the last game.

You do not understand how this works.

Remember last year?

Yes, but none of that shakes out until the second half when there is some data to go on.   We won’t even have a good idea on conference versus conference records for quite a while, which has a huge impact on the pairwise. Just win and hope the rest of the league performs up to expectations.
