Pre-Game

Nice title-linked copy from The New Hampshire about this weekend's match-up.

They pass along word that Brian Foster was injured during last Friday's game against Northeastern and that they are in no rush to get him back between the pipes at this point of the season. We'll see who is in net in about six hours - I'm putting my name in Foster's hat as I think he'll be ready and he is going to want these two games.

Hopefully The Other Guy will be able to post the starting line-up for those in the Nation that can't get it but live-stats are also available from the Minnesota site - only once the game starts does the link appear.

New Hampshire. Minnesota. Fox Sports Net North, carried on a variety of Fox College Sports channels.

See the last two paragraphs of the HHMW post below for some specific channel details.

Go 'Cats!

The only weakness I see with your team is they are giving up way too many shots. I think this years UNH team is faster than last years.

Nice to see the Fire Umile threads dead.

Ah. You're missing the crucial factor that is causing the giving of shots...

Puck control.

They're not controlling the puck in the offensive zone and thereby grant far too much puck control to the opposition. I'd bet any number on attack-minutes vs. defense would be lopsided in favor of defense.

They're fast but in today's trap defense it's just not enough. You have to be smarter than your opponent.

The lack of puck control is also showing in the scoring column.
