Hang Your Stockings and Say Your Prayers













RWD after learning tonight's score

Listen, guys. Just because I was working doesn't mean I didn't know what was going on up there in Bemidji. DA was texting me the whole time... or rather, 3 times. And the last update I got was 3-2, so I'm assuming after that he got pissed off and didn't want to send me any more messages. But I did call the Alleged Webmaster, and he gave me the final grossness. Seriously, guys. I can't listen to every game. I'm counting on you to behave yourselves when I'm not around. I always find out when you've been naughty, letting third periods slip away, hanging your goalie out to dry, and getting into skirmishes that result in multiple penalties. I'm making a list, and checking it twice. Scoring two goals a game and letting the other team get more than two goals a game does not get you on that list. Scoring seven goals in a game totally rocked. That's the kind of stuff that keeps you out of the Humane Society of the WCHA.

Bottom Line: I know when you've been bad or good, SO BE GOOD FOR GOODNESS'S SAKE.

...or you'll find a lump of coal in your stocking.

In all fairness, BSU is looking good this year.

We tied DU so we're not alone in the basement anymore:) YEA! I would rather be with your boys than alone...it's going to make for an interesting weekend coming up!

I know we hit a number of posts last night, and I wont look for excuses or scapegoats, but other than the "we just have to bury the proverbial puck" what else should these rather timid bulldogs be doing to right this ship?

I don't understand why they didn't go with the same line combos from last Saturday. We see a scoring deluge from a team that hadn't been scoring a lot of goals, and we DON'T try those combinations again?

And, obvs, The Kid should be on the first line. :^) For the vengeance factor and all.

They'll win tonight, they're at home... and I'll be around listening.

quite frankly, if hes only gonna give the kid three shifts a game i would just as soon have him back at duluth doing his homework and studying for finals
