Don't love all of my KRACH upsets but I think that we will see 2/4 KRACH upsets this week.

Tuesday, January 8th
Andover vs. Maple Grove (should be a good game)
Roseau vs. Warroad (fingers crossed that the tougher schedule by Roseau helps them. KRACH-ED #1?)
Grand Forks (N.D.) vs. East Grand Forks (Rivalry Game!)
Chaska/Chanhassen vs. Benilde St. Margarets (blowout)
Edina vs. Minnetonka (both teams top D gone but edina figures it out after scuffling)

Thursday, January 10th
Shakopee vs. Lakeville North (KRACH-ED II)
Wayzata vs. Breck (KRACH-ED IiI)

Friday, January 11th
Hill-Murray vs. Blake (predicting a 6-4 win by Blake)
Grand Rapids/Greenway vs. Elk River/Zimmerman (KRACH-ED IV)

Saturday, January 12th
Minnetonka vs. Wayzata (a pretty tough week for both teams = Trojan win)
Grand Rapids/Greenway vs. Forest Lake (FLAKE does not lose for another 2 weeks or so)
Shakopee vs. Eagan (feel like Eagan is overrated but shakopee not enough for schmack V)
Edina vs. Eden Prairie (EP has upset them in the past...not enough this year w/out Dob)

As of 2:00pm today we have seven people (including "Mr. KRACH") participating this week, but WE STILL WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MORE! We have our first slate of games this evening, so please post your picks by the 7:00pm deadline. :D

Scores from this evening and a brief commentary:

Andover 3, Maple Grove 0
The Huskies tallied a goal in each period and shut down the Crimson's offense for a 3-0 win. Andover sophomore Peyton Hemp, a Gopher recruit, scored two goals, the last one coming on an empty netter that sealed the win. Fellow sophomore and UMD recruit Gabby Krause scored Andover's other goal, and also added an assist for her two points. For the game the Huskies outshot the Crimson 27-17, with their netminder Cassidy Stumo stopping all 17 Maple Grove shots to earn her first shutout of the season.

Warroad 3, Roseau 2
The Warriors preserved their perfect won/loss season record, now standing at 18-0-0, by edging the No. 6AA ranked Roseau Rams on home ice for a 3-2 win. Sophomore Genevieve Hendrickson led Warroad's attack with a goal and two assists. For the game Roseau outshot the Warriors 24-17, which included a 9-3 margin in the third, but couldn't get the equalizer to send the game into overtime.

East Grand Forks 5, Grand Forks (N.D.) 1
Madison McDonald's two goals led the Green Wave to a 5-1 win over the Grand Forks KnightRiders in this week's "Rivalry Game".

Benilde St. Margaret's 5, Chaska/Chanhassen 0
The young Red Knights of Benilde St. Margaret's continued to show improvement in a convincing 5-0 shutout win over the Chaska/Chanhassen Storm Hawks. Sophmore Anna Podein, who has committed to Vermont, led the Red Knights' attack with a pair of goals. BSM's Rose Beeman stopped all 23 shots by the Storm Hawks to earn her 4th shutout of the season.

Edina 6, Minnetonka 1
Annie and Jane Kuehl each scored a pair of goals to lead the Hornets to a relatively easy 6-1 win over crosstown rival Minnetonka. Senior CC Bowlby, who will attend and play for Dartmouth next season, had 3 assists to add to her team-leading point total, which now stands at 37.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Things are tight to start off our Week 2 contest, with five of our seven prognosticators, led by "Mr. KRACH" himself :wink:, predicting the winners in all five of tonight's games. The other two contestants are just a point behind, with four of five correct picks. We should start to see some separation after Thursday night's two games, featuring Shakopee vs. Lakeville North and Wayzata vs. Breck, as we have very even 4/3 splits in each of them.

"No Player Data Available" as I post this, but we do have this evening's two final scores in our contest:

Lakeville North 3, Shakopee 2
Breck 4, Wayzata 3

Two very close contests. Naturally I didn't connect on either of these, but both LZ94 and massalsa did (no surprise!). As a result, LZ - with 7 points - jumps out to a one point lead over zooomx, feranged and massalsa, who are tied for 2nd, with 6 points each.

The race for this week's winner remains wide open, with six games to go.

Big win in OT for my Pioneers. 5-4 tonight over Blake.

Wish I could have been there...

Hill-Murray 5, Blake 4 (OT)
Big win indeed, a 5-4 upset that none of our seven predictors saw coming. RIT commit Joslynn Olson scored the winning goal halfway through the overtime period for the win. Olson also assisted on Alex Belde's power play goal to open the scoring just 1:52 in which gave the Pioneers the early 1-0 lead.

And in our second Pick'em Friday night game, another big upset overtime win, as it was:
Elk River/Zimmerman 2, Grand Rapids/Greenway 1 (OT)
Halle Johnson scored her second goal of the game, with the winner coming at 1:04 into the overtime period, for the Elks as they upset the Lightning for a big win in an important section 7AA game. Special kudos to the Elks' Megan Jung for stopping all but one of the Lightning's 27 shots on net.

Only one of our Pick'em contestants, namely massalsa, saw this coming, and as a result massalsa pulls into a tie with LX94 for this week's lead with 7 points each.

Forest Lake 3, Grand Rapids/Greenway 2
Perhaps a closer game than our Pick’em panel anticipated, as all seven of us picked the Rangers to win. They did fire 39 shots at the Thunderhawks’ netminder, Emily Trast, but could only get three past her. Maddie Drotts pulled her team to within one at the four minute mark, but GR/G could not get the equalizer the rest of the way.

Eagan 3, Shakopee 0
Another game where all seven of us formed a consensus, in this case favoring the 12th ranked Eagan Wildcats. Brooke Peplinski, a senior defenseman, led the Wildcats with a goal and an assist, while senior netminder Maddie Nickell stopped all 24 Shakopee shots to earn the shutout.

Wayzata 4, Minnetonka 1
Sloane Matthews, a freshman who is committed to Clarkson University, scored two goals and added an assist to lead the Trojans over the Skippers at the Plymouth Ice Center. For the game Minnetonka outshot Wayzata 29-24, but Trojan goaltender Stephanie Garvis was strong in net, saving all but one of the Skippers’ 29 shots.
In our Week 2 contest 5 of 7 went with Wayzata.

Edina vs. Eden Prairie: Result for this 3:00pm start still not posted, but since all seven of us picked the Hornets to win the outcome for Week 2 will not change.

Drum roll, please....Our winner for Week 2, with 10 points, is no other than…massalsa! Having tied for first in Week 1, he clearly is our No. 1 prognosticator….so far. It's still early!
Three others tied for second place: zooomx, LZ94 and feranged.

Look for Week 3 to be up shortly.

I see now that Edina narrowly beat Eden Prairie, 5-4. The Eagles had leads of 2-0, 4-2 and then 4-3 in the 3rd before the Hornets mounted their comeback, scoring the last two. EP did have a slight edge in SOG, 27-25, and after two their margin was 20-15. Sounds like it was a very even game overall.
