>Not All Who Wander Are Lost

18 March 2011


tUMD 2, WTF 3 (OT)

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

This is really not the end of the world. Actually I think the end of the world would have been sitting through the entire UAA-CC game. The only other matchup that would match that level of boredom is UAA-DU, because DU fans don’t attend the Final Five.

tUMD gets to go home and think about what they did. Maybe sit in the corner for awhile. But they do also get to rest, and then practice, and then get ready for wherever they are sent and whoever they will face.

tDogs will be fine if they can:

Play defence. We all know goaltending is our weakness. Play D like you did in OT against St. Cloud, and you’ll be unbeatable.

Get the secondary scoring going. Our second line needs a shakeup. Get Seidel or Grun up there and what you lose in speed a little you will more than make up for in play-making ability and physicality.

Stay hungry for the win. I’m sure they can. tDogs are superb in do-or-die situations. Today was not a do-or-die situation. I’m not pleased that they don’t have the killer instinct in all situations, but they know their next game is going to be their last.

tDogs are capable of beating anyone they come up against, whether that’s UND or BC or Michigan or Miami or ANY. TEAM. IN. DIVISION ONE HOCKEY.

Guys, remember. Adam Freaking Hauser has a National Championship ring. ADAM HAUSER. That’s all you need to know. Get out there and win next weekend and get back to the Xcel for some redemption, and also to see Jack Connolly win the Hobey Baker, as he was just announced as a finalist for the award. The list stands at ten now, with Justin Schultz from Wisconsin and the lawn mower throwing thug from UND as the other WCHA representatives. GO JACK GO!!!
