Didn't get to see the game and only heard the last 10 minutes because Charter in the cities couldn't get the SCSU game working so they put on the Dogs/Sioux and then the radio feed wasn't working on the internet, so I finally got the student one up halfway through the 3rd. From the sounds of it then the Huskies had good pressure and hit 3 pipes in that time, just couldn't put one in. Shame the one the Badgers got was off a weird bounce that Weslosky couldn't cover but those are the breaks sometimes.
I'm happy with the direction these guys are going and I've no doubt the power play won't be down for much longer, though we need Roe to be a big part of it so I hope he's ok.
As for the scuffle at the end, from what I heard McDonagh took out Rioux and it started from there, just some minors and a couple 10 minutes for Goeffrion and Lasch. Also it was Goeffrion who took the team off according to the radio guys and Eaves stayed to shake Motzko's hand so there is respect there and some UW guys stayed for the handshake but a half dozen at best.
As for Lauridsen, he's been impressive, he can skate well for a big man and likes laying people out which this team needs. He's still a freshman so he makes some positioning mistakes or passing mistakes but it's no accident the goals against have come down since he and Rioux both came into the lineup.
Next week it's time for a little payback on the Dogs for the beating at the X.
