Not a chance until it's 5-0.
Got in at 8-1
That means they played in about half the game. Good experience
Or half the third, which was running time!

The real question should be who has a chance to take down Lakeville North.
Why? Are they the defending champions? Did they strip the hornets of the title?

As for BSM, I'm more mad at Pauly for letting a kid wear the #64 than not doing more to prevent his players, but I'm kind of an old fuddy-duddy at times like that.... I can find no mention of any famous #64 in the history of the NHL. Perhaps with the video going viral, this kid will take the honors...

Blah blah blah It was a tightly contested game that meant everything to the player participating. Nobody gave an inch the game and the emotions ran over and the kids on the ice, with all of their equipment on, starting wrestling and some punches were thrown. You would hope that this would not happe...

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't understand that zamboni was in their locker room.

You beat Edina in a meaningless game. Edina is very dangerous and I would not want to play them when it counts. What happened in the Brainerd and Roseau games. Brainerd and Roseau are really playing well right now. So I might give you a pass with those games. Problem is if you guys want to be taken...

Giles has done a great job working with the youth and being an important part of their development. In my eyes it is not a coincidence that Edina started going to state again once those kids that were mites and squirts in 1999 and 2000 became Varsity players. I'm curious as to why this viewpoint ha...

Almost seemed like Giles was the first person ever to not put Bellows in every single role imaginable, & dad wasn't a fan of it. Which is interesting, because the kid got lots of PP time, and Edina isn't exactly the team that will just roll with two lines. His ice time had to rank up there with eve...

SATS, have your watched freshmen Sam Walker and Clayton Phillips for Edina Varsity this year, and if so does Olsen standout a lot more ?? Both Hornets were nationally rated Bantams like Olsen was , and now are getting a fair amount of varisity playing time. I think Phillips is in top 2 D pairs, and...

So he got cut so Beaupre's kid could play--back up goalie.

I for one, love this story!! It very much matters that he was a senior and that he was cut. That is one of the best parts of the story.

Nothing. Simply gives the reader context, background, point of reference, whatever. Not sure what the point of your question is.
