Re: Mahtomedi vs Warroad

Tough day for Foster, the Warroad goalie. Five goals on a dozen shots really hurts.

Re: Out State Recruitment -- STA this year and going forward

Private schools should have their own section. If they have a hockey team, they are in that section. I think let that section play at state, still. I don’t see how that is unreasonable. Almost by definition, they have different standards than the publics.

Third goal may be the back-breaker.

Re: HERMANTOWN VS ST CLOUD CATHEDRAL

A bit of a scuffle at the end. High-level stuff. Some great saves.
Loving this game!

Re: Moorhead - Hill-Murray

Two formidable-looking goalies.
Moorhead looks a step slower, early.

Re: Mankato East vs St. Cloud Cathedral

Play your 3rd & 4th lines the rest of the game. Don't see much use in playing top guys up 10-2.

Breck vs Luverne

The final score, 8-1, wasn’t too bad. Of course, one needs to take into account Breck scored 8 goals in the first period then, by Hockey Hub count, had zero (zero!) shots the final two periods. I get Luverne was severely outmatched, but couldn’t Breck at least shoot from the perimeter after that fir...

Re: The Argy Bargy 3A Thread 2019-2020

Just want to chime in to say how encouraging it is to see Fairmont and Worthington win a section game, even if they were "play-in" games. I grew up in SW MN (back in the JR Gold days), and I keep on eye on 3A, and those programs -- particularly Worthington -- have had some tough times. Back in the 9...

Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

I like the idea of having eight section winners and eight from the polls in a 16-team tourney. I think it would go over very well.

Re: AA school fielding an additional A team

This does bring up an interesting thought exercise. Could Edina's (or Maple Grove's, or Minnetonka's, etc) Junior Gold team win Class A state?

I don't know why people are complaining, this game has been really fun to watch. Coaching and goaltending has been the difference.
I hope East takes it tomorrow.

Fantastic period of hockey. Great pace.
I think East's goalie is better than Edina's, I think. That'll be the difference.

No one gets "bored" in the state semis, no matter which class they are in. If they do somehow get bored, then they have far bigger issues than hockey.
The Hawks got outplayed and pummeled. Period.

I'm in NYC, and I've been able to watch all the games (snow day yesterday) on GrandStadium without issue.
Since there appear to be quite a few MN HS hockey fans in the NYC area, we should set up a meet-up next year for the tourney! Maybe the same bar where they have the Vikings/T-Wolves meet-ups...

I'm perplexed that Edina has managed to lose twice this year. Especially since the only time I've been able to see Minnetonka was when they lost 8-2 to Edina :-D

No, Blaine is not very good. Their tie with Duluth East says more about East than it does about Blaine. Duluth East tied 3 win Blaine and tied WBL who lost to Rochester Century.

Windom's goalie may be able to keep them in some games but scoring is going to come at a premium for them.
I think they are about the eight-best team in the section.

I was cheering for MAML, but I don't understand the obsession with Hermantown.

While they were more talented than all the teams they...
