Tonight's game will be available on BTN2GO it appears. I'm at work so this is good news for me. Can someone catch me up on hockey a little bit? I haven't watched since the RPI game on YouTube. They looked really bad as a whole unit when I went to a Mercyhurst game at Yost. Go Blue!

Wisconsin is a strange program by today's standards.

They operate in 4 year cycles. So, Mike Eaves will bring in a gigantic class and be pretty bad in year 1, competitive in year 2 and compete for a championship in years 3 and 4 then repeat.

Call last year a mulligan because they lost almost their entire team from 2 years ago and didn't bring anyone in, so this year is their year 1 of the cycle.

The Badgers have a really solid core of forwards; Malone, Rockwood, Hughes, Kunin but their blueline isn't good and they had to grab a goalie at the last minute and start him from day 1.

On any given night this team can take anyone in the county to the wire or they can get blown out.

Watched them put a pretty near flawless smackdown on Dartmouth last Friday, with the game in hand about six minutes in. Then they tied 1-1 on Saturday; no idea what happened there.

I would be interested in knowing how teams fare when they face Michigan with extra time to gameplan. Maybe it's because Red blew up his linechart with a week to get ready, but they look disconnected. Wisconsin is killing them out there.

CHN app says game also on C(omcast)N900. True? I'm out and trying to set DVR on iPhone xfinity app & it's not allowing. Saying not available. Is it actually broadcasting on CN900? Altho I guess knowing it is would only bum me out more...
