The "Upcoming Event" boxy-thingie in the middle of the article is where Bacher posts his live updates during the game.

Fans from both teams can and do ask live questions.

If it's open to both teams, the entire thread is going to be questions about why DU hates and specifically, maliciously seeks to destroy Tech and college hockey.

Luckily Bacher has a censor button and only posts the intelligent questions.

Beau Bennett misses game with wrist injury (deep cut-stitches).

DU pulls Murray half way through the first period...DU down 3-1...it could be ugly unless the boys pull their heads out of their asses!!!!

dggoddard said...

Tech basically scored three goals on three trips down the ice in 10 minutes of play.

Very efficient.

DU did not pull Murray, he left with an injury.

But yes agreed with DU needing to get their heads out of their asses!

Denver got screwed out of that goal attempt by Shore. That was not a kick-in. Spectacular job by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association referees tonight...... jerks.

DU/CC Dad said...

Tech 4-1 after 2. Do we know what kind of injury Murray sustained in the first period?

dggoddard said...

Announcers guessed shoulder.

dggoddard said...

Gwoz not happy. Tech scores 3 empty net goals.

dggoddard said...

Olkinuora played great. One goal in 2 1/2 periods.

horrible

DU/CC Dad said...

Tech played us smart. Robinson was hot. Olky played well. DU wasn't ready for Tech tonight. Over the years both my kids always looked forward to the Tech series because they always play us tough just like Mankato. Tech gets a well deserved win. Tomorrow night is a whole new ballgame...go DU!!!

Amy said...

Very undisciplined game tonight and it cost us. I saw the puck go off the shaft of the stick on that no goal...anybody else see anything different? The one positive I can pull out of this game was that Olkinuora played a solid game. I give all the credit to Michigan for having a great game and capitalizing on our mistakes but DU's got to come out strong tomorrow.

The Flying Finn is In ... glad the kid gets a chance. Sad DU got screwed on that one goal, but maybe the squad learns it's not the 2nd best team in the country right now, no matter what a poll says. Too many stupid penalties. I'd rather take this setback in October than in February. Let's learn, get tough, get mad, get even and get better. Go Pios.

According to the Mining-Gazette, Gwozdecky said Murray will not play tonight (presumably because of the injury).

How lucky was DU that they were able to go out and find Olkinuora at the 11th hour, without a scholarship to offer and he so far he's been a rock.

It looked like Adam took an unintentional skate to the head, when the Tech guy collided with him. THANK YOU PIONEERVISION for carrying this game video live. I was pleasantly surprised by that. Can we have all away games webcasted??? They must have had technical difficulty, because Stickney came on the Fan about 6 minutes into the game, and during that first 6 minutes the webcast quality was really shitty.
Another comment: not sure I agree with Gwoz decision to keep Juho out, after the 1st empty net goal. That wasn't looking for a spark - that was to embarass his players and add some minuses to thier stats. Tonight, Tech will experience the real DU

I agree with Anon, I think Gwoz needed to get the guy's attention the same way he did by lecturing them while standing on the ice last week. Someone needs to get through to them that there is NO team you can look past. Remember when Alaska Anchorage came into Magness a couple of years ago and embarrassed us.

I hope it's not a case of some of them focusing on an NHL career rather than the task at hand
