For the third series in a row, the fine folks at GCI have posted the archive for only the Saturday night game from the weekend. I'm not sure if they did so because those were the three games that the Seawolves won or if they just made the same upload mistake in each case. I'll keep checking back and if they ever put the Friday night games up, I'll grab the goal highlights and put them on YouTube.
This weeks file is just under 10 minutes long ... the YouTube limit. Besides the goal highlights I've included Tyler Currier's first collegiate shift. He did pretty well, not long after taking the ice he nails some Mankato boob pretty well (happens just at the right edge of the frame) and you can hear his family/friends hooting and hollering. Then he proceeds to hit and/or bump at least 4 other Mankato boobs. He looked quick and energetic. I deem it a worthy inclusion. Good on ya Tyler.
I also included Dave Shyiak's post game interview with Kurt Haider. He gives a nice mention of Tyler's efforts about 2/3 of the way through. I snagged the team's smiling faces coming off the ice after the game as well.
I'll have a Colorado College preview sometime this evening (Wednesday). It's obviously an important series since the Seawolves are really in need of some additional points. It's obviously going to be a difficult task as the Black Bears are way the hell up the standings tied for 1st with 13 points. A sweep this weekend would give UAA 10 points and would naturally be the preferred outcome. I don't know what if any sort of impact the Thanksgiving factor will be. Do the guys just go ahead and pig out on Thursday? Or would it be better to bag the turkey etc ... in favor of a standard meal and save any Thanksgiving festivities for Sunday back here? If I were the coach I'd just go with the turkey et al. Mistake?
More later ... hope you enjoyed the highlights.
