The Sioux gave up a two goal lead on Saturday night for the 2nd weekend in a row, earning a split with Minnesota-Duluth.
A split on the road is always good, right? I mean, split on the road, sweep at home? That's the way it's supposed to work, I think. But what happens when the team had the lead with less than a minute left and were unable to close it out? What about then?
I'm not sure it's being noticed because the Sioux have put together a decent season in the W/L column. But in the WCHA, they are looking at a 6-5-1 record and a 6th place standing right now. Personally, I'm not too impressed. Now I know some people are going to say that the Sioux are playing much better in the 1st half than usual, .500 is better than the alternative, etc. But when they tie the lowly Gophers and lose to the hapless Seawolves, you can't help but to be a little frustrated.
Up next is a formidable opponent, the Badgers. We all know how much I hate Wisconsin, so stay tuned...
