The CCHA had a really nice youtube thing going in their final two season. The "CCHA NOW" segment was solid. Gave some highlights, top plays, and some level of analysis. BTN is obviously providing good TV support, but I wish there was more web/youtube stuff.

The NCHC is kicking our butt in this regard - however, they lack their own TV network so it's understandable

There hasn't been anything from the Windsor side about trying to flip him.

He's played in 15 games so it's not like they stapled him to the bench like Milne, and there will be opportunities to move up next year.

My take on tonight:

 

Worry if...

  • Nagelvoort (or Racine) continues to give up delicious rebounds. All three of PSU's goals last night were a result of Nagelvoort not corraling the puck and giving PSU 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th chances right out in front.
  • Everyone tears their ACL in warm-ups

Cackle with knowing glee if...

  • Michigan continues to just knock PSU off the puck; enters the PSU zone like the defense isn't there
  • You are going to the game.

Another pass from one of our blueliners up the boards, right at a Penn State forward. We're 23 games into the season and they still make that mistake.
