Long Time Gone

tUMD 5, Bear-Throwers 3

Well, finally. Finally we beat Bemidji! Heck, finally we won! Oh, who am I kidding, FINALLY WE PLAYED A GAME!!! Exciting. And I'm excited because I won't have to miss anymore games due to stupid work! Huzzah!

This game was certainly exciting, as we spent FAR TOO MUCH OF IT ON THE PENALTY KILL. We DID have a power play goal, which is awesome, but our PK gave up 2. Giving up mostly specialty teams goals meant that all the Bulldogs were either even, +1, or in the case of the brilliant Josh Meyers, +3. Trent Palm was tossed early in the game which left us down a defenceman, though we handled it.

I'm always nervous going into the 3rd period tied. Even more so than when we are losing, because when you're losing, you're losing. When you're tied, you're not losing, but you have the potential to become losing. If that makes any sense. I was so proud to see the Bulldogs take that 3rd period and make it their own, scoring-wise. I wasn't pleased about the short-handed breakaway we gave up, but Stalock saved the bacon and all was well.

Tomorrow night: demonstrate why Bemidji doesn't belong in the WCHA. FINISH THEM.
