Thoughts on yesterdays games:
RIT was a fucking disgrace. They are nowhere near as abyssmal as they played yesterday, but they just decided to not show up. The Badgers were able to thoroughly dominate with almost zero effort (which may hurt them tomorrow). We were sitting right in front of Barry Melrose (got my picture with him, woo hoo) and he was disgusted with RIT's effort. I have absolutely no clue how a solid, tough team like Denver lost to them.
BC is super, super fast but they are not 6 goals better than Miami. Miamis goalies simple failed.
BC is all transition hockey, and I think a crisp badger team can wreck them. Sadly, after that RIT debacle it will probably take a period for the Badgers to remember how fast actual division 1 hockey is.
Lastly, the ncaa really fucked this up. Playing college hockey games in 70000 seat football stadiums, when there is an NHL rink a few blocks away is fucking retarded. There were supposedly nearly 40000 people there yesterday but honestly, it felt like 4000. Absolutely zero atmosphere. Just awful and stupid and a real shame.
