"I love when he's out on the ice," Cheverie said of Nutini, who attended Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora before playing two seasons of junior-A for Wichita Falls of the North American Hockey League.

I was disappointed that Mike C. chose Shore over Nutini for #2 star last Friday in the 1-0 win. He more than made up for it by recognizing his great play in the Post article.

I agree the first was where we lost this game. Congrats to SCSU. Crazy weekend for the top ten. Who the heck gets the #1 spot Monday? They better not give it to the UNDies.

I'm so happy the Seawolves went into the World Cement Dump and pulled off the upset. Let's get that frickin Gold Pan boys!
