International Falls at Hibbing

Post by NorthHockey2013 » Wed Feb 01, 2012 7:20 pm

The broncos travel to Hibbing tomorrow to finish 2 game series. Hibbing won 4-2 with an empty net with 5 seconds left in the falls. Who takes this one? Could be crucial for 7a seeding

The winner of this game is nearly a lock for the #2 seed, and the loser will still likely be #3.

I'll go 5-3 Hibbing.

Couple things about, and since their last meeting

1. After last meeting an official came to the Bronco locker room and apologized to a player for not calling a penalty shot (explained his mistake) which could have tied the game with seconds left.

2. Hibbing has gotten worse while I-Falls has gotten better (I-falls lost to Grand Rapids by 1) (beating both Duluth D and Virginia)(GR beat Hibbing by 3)

I'm going to go with I-Falls by 3

Great news for those interested, it appears audio for this game will be streamed by an I-Falls radio station.

On a side note: Thanks for nothing WMFG in Hibbing. Stations in towns half the size of Hibbing (Rapids, Little Falls, I-Falls) stream many of their teams' games, yet you are too cheap and/or technologically inert to do the same. :roll:

Yep. He had a goal and five assists vs Proctor on Monday. Hopefully he can do it again tonight. :D

Hibbing leads 1-0 after 1. A major penalty was called on Hibbing, but Adam Johnson scores a shorty to put them ahead.

Hibbing wins 3-2, locking up the #2 seed in the process. Very close game.

These two teams can either play a great game or a decent game and barely lose by 1 or 2 goals. I don't think either team has a bigger advantage over each other. They have both shown they can compete. There's a good chance one of these two teams will be playing an improving D-Marshall team, and that should be their main focus.

Agreed. Barring a huge quarterfinal upset, these two teams will meet in Rapids to see who gets a shot at upsetting Marshall. Should be another nail-biter.
