Oh my god... Saville. Face offs. Feet moving, compete, penalty kill.
It wasn’t a fluke win, but a lot of the game was played at the UNO end. UNO did dominate the face-offs, played good defense on penalty kills, and took advantage of the the scoring opportunities that they had. Much better than the night before and the previous 6 years against this team. Good win for this weekend and along with the wins over CC last week good start over-all for the second half of the season.
While I agree about the “where”, the “what” looked a lot better. And may I reinforce Saville one more time?
Now... what do we have left for North Dakota?
CC is back on COVID Protocol. 6 against UND is the tale of 20-21.
First off: it was awesome to be at baxter again to watch some hockey. I have tickets to every remaining home game. even though I had to wear that stupid mask it was a blast. (which I promptly removed often!)
DU dominated for long stretches but failed to execute. (which has been a problem for them this year) I'm very happy with the W and that we finally beat them but a big task is coming with UND on deck -- love to see the shots on goal total go down a little bit. UNO has been giving up a ton.
Penalty kill continues to be off the charts fantastic.
I'm excited for the upcoming weekend that's for sure.
