Greetings again from downtown Mankato. Game 3 of the best of three series with a trip to the Final Five on the line!
Yikes, looks like it's time to start running again!
UNO starters: Faulkner, Cooper, Aneloski, Polk, Lane, Adams
MSU starters: Williams, Elbrecht, Nelson, Grant, Leitner, Gervais
Attendance is pretty light again. I don't get it.
Might be too small for NCAA standards, but I think it would be perfect considering attendance at a lot of those arenas
Leitner and Lane with some whacks at each other at center ice before the puck dropped.
I figured there'd be more students here with break ending this weekend. Saw some on twitter today say they didn't want to pay $7
Stern breaks up a good chance by Omaha down low with White.
It's not a big town. And that didn't seem to be a problem 5-6 years ago when the section was full on a regular basis.
I'm guessing the Sunday game is a tough sell all over the place, especially if people travel for a weekend of games.
Good chances by the LaFontaine line. McInnis chipped one wide, and later got held up going for a rebound with a gaping net.
Faulkner with a good blocker save on Leitner.
Sounds like a loss won't drop them far in the PWR tonight, but I don't think they want to take their chances sitting around next weekend.
Also, I think the Final Five would be a big deal for this program.
If there's been a sore spot with the fans, it's that MSU hasn't been to St. Paul in 10 years.
This place is a tomb right now. Quiet crowd, even the music's being played at a low level.
MSU strikes first. Gervais from Grant. Gervais crashing down the slot. Grant with the pass from the back wall.
Getting to 2 would be big for MSU this period.
Not free, but there should be links at msumavericks.com
Should be on the regular Charter channels
Omaha continues to pound on Hayes. All weekend long.
