So the poster for this year’s team shows a few of the players with the headline: They Trust One Another. They Care for One Another. They Play for One Another.
(And by night they fight crime!
Game ramblings within.
I’m telling you, thepassing this year. Actually setting up plays, and only those who suffered through the Sauer years will understand what a revelation this was, but they skated down and got somebody in front and WHAM! perforated the Michigan Tech nets. It’s just sonice to see them get some offense going. They haven’t had any shooting in about five years, or whenever it was that Heatley and Reinprecht left. The championship team was pretty fucking great, but the shooting was all Earle.
Connolly spends too much time out in front of the crease, leaving them acres of room to protect, and it would have been nice had he not had to make more than 30 saves (defense, anyone?) but he made them, and well. He’ll get there. I love goalies. They’re special and they’re weird and they have all these tics and rituals and man, if your job was standing in front of a net while five gigantic Huskie goons shoot pucks at you, you’d have rituals too.
Favorite student section cheer: Better Goalie! (at the empty Michigan Tech net at the end of the third period)
Series split. Next weekend’s North Dakota. THAT should be fun.
