Seawolves 3 - MTU 3

I'm a bit weary so I'm not going to give a long recap. And by weary I just mean I'm honest to goodness tired and don't feel like writing: tonight's result not being a factor, even if it was "teh suck". The most positive way to spin this weekend is to say that the team didn't hurt themselves standings-wise ... they didn't help themselves standings-wise though either. I'll have more extensive thoughts after a good nights sleep so come back tomorrow if you're interested and I'll talk about individual players a bit and how I thought they did.

Let me finish by talking about lessons learned. This team has been through more than a few situations/games so far this season that were abject lessons. There shouldn't have been any barrier to imprinting those lessons on the players minds. They've all been demi-traumatic enough in some way to ensure that. Same thing this weekend. At some point these lessons learned must be applied. Right? That's how the world works. Right? We trip and fall, then trip and fall, then do it again before we learn to pick up our feet when walking. Right?

And oh yeah ... Tech isn't as bad as their record.

Tech came to play tonight... They were skating hard from the opening faceoff.

I liked our line combos tonight though. The 4th line was dominant much of the time they were on the ice and it looked like there was some good chemestry with Aiken on the third line.

Horray for Coach, playing Selby on the second line and having enough faith to have him in the game at the end of regulation. That line generated a couple good chances but didn't really find its stride with Crowder/Grant in the box three times...

I thought Bales had a good night but he still likes to makes the occasional "pass to nowhere". Good to see Backstrom on the scoresheet too..

Still, special teams continues to be the KILLER... ARGH... We have the talent and we're winning games 5 on 5, just need to loosen the grip on the sticks for the PP and PK...

Selby's FREE... Now, how 'bout some PP time Coach???

'Kissing your sister'. When you're up by two goals, bury em' with two more!! I just know that UAA will kick ass someday, and win a National title. Don't settle for the cellar, aim for the top. You will sweep Denver. Believe it!! Why not believe? UAA is as talented as an team in the league. Why is it that fans don't support this wonderful team? Wake up fans!! GO SEAWOLVES!!!

I thought the guys showed much more heart last night, and liked the line combos as well. They seemed to play with more energy - except for times in the second period.

Tech took DU to overtime recently, so the Seawolves should know that they are definitely beatable.

Have a good week at practice, and go down there with confidence guys, you can do it!

They are not as talented as any team in the league. Can they pull off an upset with good team play, yes. But don't kid yourself, UAA is not as talented as ND or MN.

Uaa has some top end talented forwards who are only in there third year, with more support from their fans. Some of them may even stay around for a fourth year.

Grant is only a sophmore. Come on Cobb, lets actually get pro active and get the students to the games!

I thought the team looked good last night and they played with desire and intensity most of the game. Unfortunately Tech played likewise. So frustrating and sad for the boys.......we have as much talent as other teams. We all know it. The boys will come up with a big win soon which will give them back the confidence they need and deserve for the rest of the season. Go get 'em this wknd Seawolves. Although most of us won't be there, we'll be watching, listening and cheering you on.
