Re: Tournament programs sold out

Program sells out most years as many long time fans collect them and with majority of the tickets held by season ticket holders I suspect the plan is that by Fri nearly everyone has had a shot at buying one and why pay to staff sales on a day (Saturday) where very few will buy one?

Heard a rumor that the long time captain of the mighty Skippers may be out???
Yes, we received an email today from EJ that both he and assistant Ogie are both resigning to spend more time with families as each has 3 boys in hockey.

Re: Eden Prairie vs Blaine

Game, set, match out scored Blaine and out shot them by good margin so perhaps #3 seed wasn't mistake and coaches have bit of insight.

Lake conference final?

Re: Play-off games Friday 3-1-19

WBL wins 3-2 after late HM goal in 3rd.

Great game to watch and looked like a full house at Aldrich arena.

Re: 2019 STATE TOURNAMENT

Fun game to watch for this neutral fan. Tonka wins 7-4 with an empty netter at the end. The Crimson had a two man advantage with their goalie pulled at the end, when it was 6-4, and came very close several times to pull within one. But they panicked a little at the end, and a turnover gave Tonka th...

Crimson and Skippers tied at 1-1 after one. By far the most entertaining game of the tourney so far. Although Tonka had the edge in play, the Crimson are competitive and are playing good D, while remaining dangerous on the break. Very well played period by both teams.
Tonka wins 7-4

Re: Hockey Day in MN

Does anyone know if Andover and Minnetonka have to play both goalies during the game? If so, advantage Huskies! It's not required, but more of a gentleman's agreement between the coaches in HDM games that everyone gets to play. So much for “gentlemen’s agreement”. Hats off to Manney for getting bot...

Re: Games Thursday 1-17-19

4-0 Tonka over EP. Just looking at the box score that’s as classic a Minnetonka game as you’ll see. Teams stay with them through 2 and a half periods and then a quick couple goals and an empty netter later it looks like a blowout. However I thought this was still an uncharacteristicly sloppy game f...

Re: Hockey Day in MN

Forecast low Friday now -19 and high Saturday -6 with 5 to 10 mph winds from north.

9:30am start has to be near -10 F or colder so any wind at all pushes this near -20 windchill which tells me this moves indoors.

Love to have this stay outdoors but MSHSL isn't going to risk safety.

Re: When will Minnetonka's first loss come?

Questions is, who will hold Tonka to 2 goals or less and then be able to put 3 or more on the board? Minnetonka is not a high scoring team but they are very skilled when they need to be as last 2 goals against BSM showed. The challenge is scoring on them which requires enough quality shots and from ...

Re: Games Wednesday & Thursday

BSM and Tonka are tied 1-1 after 1st period. Tonka scored on a PP to tie the game. Great start for BSM as they took a 1-0 lead in the first, but a late penalty cost them dearly as Tonka tied it in the waning seconds. The 2nd period was all Skippers as they had Benilde on their heels pretty much fro...

A turned skate isn't necessarily grounds for disallowing a goal. It has more to do with a distinct kicking motion, which I didn't see happen. That's also how I remember the rule. That is the rule and skate never moved toward the net to direct the puck. Tonka took more penalties than normal and that...
