Last night's game had to be the bitterest pill to swallow. It's one thing to lose a game, but that one was just a punch in the gut. You have to hand it to DU though, they weren't about to give in (or up).

If anything comes out of that loss, I hope that it'll make the team wiser in showing that you have to bring your "A" game for a full 60-minutes (and not 50-some odd minutes) to win the game.

Also, many people are just talking about the Rhett Rakhshani show, and while I thought he was pretty darn good in this game, I've gotta give props to the entire DU team because the Huskies had a few good shots on net in the last 28 or so seconds of regulation and the DU players in front of Mannino did an excellent job of doing whatever they could to preserve the win. I know that Brock Trotter took all of one shot and barely made it back on his feet.

And it's not going to get any easier for the Huskies either. CC comes in next week and then there's the Ohio State Holiday Tournament opener against Miami. If the Huskies want to make some major moves, not only in the WCHA but more importantly in the Pairwise rankings, these next two series are crucial.
