>We’re Not Mercyhurst!

29 November 2008


Hello, everyone! Are you all sleepy from your 4 a.m. jaunts to Walmart for cheap crap that no one wants to receive from you because they already know it’s cheap Walmart crap? I’ll take a gift receipt, please. Oh, we may have some St. Cloud fans in the hizzy this weekend, so I’ll try to make them feel included. Did you enjoy your campout at FleetFarm to get the lastest fashions from Carhart? Something in a coverall, perhaps?

Now, let’s talk about the real turkeys: Duh Huskies!!! (Heather, you can stop reading now. It’s better this way.)

“St. Cloud State University: you’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” Ah, Obi-Wan, you sure do know what you’re talking about.

We really laid the hurt down on St. Cloud in the first game of the series. In case you’ve forgotten, here is the box score and here is my recap. One is informative. The other is not. Guess which one!!!

To recap the recaps, the Connollys Connollied all over the Huskies. There was only one goal that was not either a direct or indirect result of a Connolly, and it was scored by Matt Greer from Andrew Carroll and Trent Palm. I always love goals where random combinations of people score. I mean, yes, Carroll and Greer were on the same line and all, but… well… they’re not exactly Bill Watson and Brett Hull. But, it was a very exciting goal and I was very unstressed once they scored. tUMD also went 3/7 on the power play and 6/6 on the penalty kill. Bob Vader tried to pull another Kronick by inserting *itch Ryan onto the 2nd line, but he barely touched the ice (yet managed to be -1 as he was on the ice for the first goal) and only showed up on the stat sheet by taking a boarding penalty.

Some things have changed. St. Cloud swept Denver after Denver swept us. They also split with Wisconsin whereas we only had 1 sad little point. St. Cloud also eked out a few wins against college hockey powerhouse Robert Morris. We took three against perennial bottom-feeder North Dakota. Chris Hepp cut his mullet. *itch Ryan hasn’t played since tX.

Some things have stayed the same. St. Cloud still has a terrible power play. They have 1 power play goal in conference play. ONE POWER PLAY GOAL. That is a power play percentage of 2.2%. I’m feeling pretty good about our pk. I always feel good about our PK, especially when Matty Greer is taking care of business out there.

I’m trying to figure out Garrett Roe’s status by wading through the SCCC season thread on USCHO (barf) but all I can find is domestic bickering between the cousin/sibling/spouses on there. Okay, something actually posted in the game thread and it appears Roe will be playing despite a BRUISE on his LEFT ARM. REPEAT: A BRUISE ON HIS LEFT ARM. DO YOU READ, ME? OVER. Well, I guess that means there will be two crybabies on the ice instead of just the usual Ryan Lasch. (HEATHER!! I TOLD YOU TO STOP READING!!!)

We need two points this weekend. Sic ’em, Dogs. Stick salute tomorrow night!

    >ARGH! I should have listened and yet, you say to stop reading … that just makes me want to read on!!! All I have to say is that I think it will be a different game. And you’re abso-freaking-lutely right – our PP sucks…I’m going to overlook the fact that you must be high to call RYAN LASCH a cry baby.

    >One woman’s crybaby is another woman’s boyfriend…I KNEW you would read more. I would do the same though. But at least you knew I was cognizant of you!!
