Re: Eden Prairie vs Blaine

The trip call on the wall should have been a dive! The cross check was absolutely brutal. These penalties totally changed the game. As was said EP dominated the neutral zone and that was huge...but going from up 2 to 0 to down 4 to 2 was mostly about the penalties and reffing. After that the game ch...

Re: Eden Prairie vs Blaine

in the end the penalties hurt but EP owned the neutral zone this game especially the third period.

Re: Eden Prairie vs Blaine

[quote=green4 post_id=733300 time=1552097532 user_id=20155] The reffing has been less than ideal. But let’s be clear, EP has been taking it to Blaine for most of this game [/quote] Totally changed the momentum. I will say Blaine has been very bad in neutral zone. EP much better in the center of the ...

The blown no-call that would have given Blaine a 5-3 up two goals and instead ends up with an EP PP was a game-changer. [/quote] Absolutely agree. This has been th...

Re: Players under the radar at the tourney

Two defensemen who don't get much talk are Luke G #3 for Moorhead and #21 Nick H from Blaine.

Both were exceptional in their games yesterday. Make excellent decisions. Two of the better D in this tourney along with Mike V from Edina and Hunter P

Re: AA QF: Lakeville South vs. #3 Eden Prairie

For as much talk about the depth of EP's forwards there was they did a whole lot of double shifting and shortening the bench. Doesnt make sense to me.

LVS had the better chances late in the 3rd ... They may actually win this one in OT.

Re: 2AA Final - Eden Prairie vs. Holy Family

I have watched HF in all of their last 3 games. Stillwater, Prior Lake and Minnetonka all controlled more of the puck play during the game but lost due to Huber outplaying each of his counterparts. IMO - EP has weaker tending than each of the above mentioned 3 teams so this will be very very interes...

Given all the talk about Hill losing to Hastings, it seems to be a good time to revisit this section! Maybe the weakest section in the state in AA this year! #1 - WBL - Not much chance they aren't #1 even if Stillwater were to pull off an upset in a rivalry game vs. WBL or if they drop another one l...
