First off, I was unable to watch the games this weekend. Friday night was not on the webcast and Saturday night I was flying, so I'm kind of piecing this weekend together from what I listened to on the radio and from what I read on Saturday's game.
This weekend's series was somewhat satisfying. To me it was like going to the bar and finding out they don't have your favorite vodka but they do have a vodka that is somewhat on your level. So it's like me ordering a Ketel and tonic, and instead getting a Belvedere. It'll do, but it's not ideal.
Friday night, the team just played flat out uninspired hockey. The shots were not indicative of play, from what I could tell. I was really unimpressed with the game, quite frankly, and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Saturday's game was much better. It sounds like the Sioux were clicking well on all cylinders, passes were crisp and accurate, and from what I heard, St. Cloud didn't play a bad game.
A sweep would have been better. A split will do for now. A weekend off is what this team needs.
