Wow, what a beatdown

Raise your hand if you saw this coming.

Yeah, that's what I figured.

After a scoreless first period, the Sioux opened it up in the second, putting up 1/2 a dozen goals on rookie of the year candidate Mike Lee and ensuring a victory. The Sioux put two more on the board with Frattin finally scoring his first goals of the season and wound up winning 8-1, silencing the Husky crowd and separating themselves from the bottom of the WCHA.

The biggest story in this game could be the 1st period, though. With about 6 minutes left, baby baby Lammy and Marvin decided to drop the gloves and fight. However, the linesmen decided that wasn't going to happen and promptly broke it up. Each player was given a 4 minute penalty + a 10 minute misconduct. Now, why is this important? Marvin is one of SCSU's biggest PK players. He's out there quite a bit. With him tied up for 14 minutes, UND put up 2 goals on SCSU and were well on their way to the rout.

This win, aside from the fact that UND is not out of home ice for the playoffs, was huge in terms of a morale booster. How many times have the Sioux been "right there" this season? Very few of their losses have they been outplayed and blown out. The majority of them have been one goal defeats. They are always on the cusp of winning, but can't seem to finish. A lopsided victory is clearly what the doctor ordered.

Up next, red-hot Minnesota-Duluth, fresh off a bye week. This next weekend will define the Sioux, and define the season.

What the heck did you say Brandon to get Donald all rialed up?

Brandon said...

it's Donald. The fact I exist pisses him off.

Goon said...

Don't you love these anonymous douche bags that act brave but don't give their names? If you had a stat counter or a site meter you could actually figure out where they came from.

FHG, I haven't seen Yutz used for a while, rube cred for you.

I was the first poster about duluth not being red hot, not trying to hide my identity just did not feel like setting up an account. My name is Russ, i am in Qatar right now, not hiding anything. I would not say my comment was that strong that would require me to hide my identity.

Brandon said...

hi Russ who is living in Qatar. Yeah, while Duluth has cooled in recent weeks, they are still a very dangerous foe who can handle the Sioux.

You can feel free to put your name at the bottom of your post. The losers like Donald are just homos.

I am a Sioux fan and am absolutely disgusted by your comments and language in some of your blog posts. You casually calling someone a "homo" truly shows your maturity. Inflammatory, bigoted, and homophobic language is uncalled for and you should be ashamed of yourself. How about apologizing to to the Sioux fans who are now embarrassed and offended to have you as a blogger.

The number of posters who stop by here to leave negative comments shows what kind of an idiot Brandon is. How's the job going Brandon? Karmas a bitch.

hey Sloe Gin, you honestly think I care what people say on my blog or how they feel about it? I'm going to piss someone off regardless of what I write, so no, I don't really care.
