Two top 15 teams in the state meeting for the first time in more than 5 years. Blaine has played a weaker schedule and has only one notable opponent on their schedule thus far, but it is a win over BSM who gave Burnsville one of their three losses.

Should be a great game and very few would be surprised to see either team win.

Having watched our Eagan team go undefeated against these teams in the past 4 weeks, I'll take Burnsville 4-2

Bengals have a GREAT power play, but 5-on-5 Burnsville top line will be the best on the ice in this one

Umm, Eagan has not played Blaine and Blaine has yet to lose so I guess Eagan is undefeated against these teams but they only played one so...

Yeah...and Edina (while ranked #1) has no more games against higher ranked teams (paraphrasing the keeper)?!?!? Interesting how some people interpret various factual information.

Neither teams "wins" a scrimmage. They are an opportunity for both teams to work on different things before the season starts.

Counts for what? It counts to me in forming my opinion that Burnsville has the upper hand. You form your opinion based on your own criteria. I'll do the same

My criteria is about the same as the MSHSL, coaches, people who are involved in state rankings, and probably most players on scrimmages counting... they don't. Like the 'watcher mentioned above, coaches use them to figure out numerous things about their team, ie. who is going to actually make the varsities, line combinations, PP/PK units, etc. This may not happen in Eagan, but some teams will actually SIT some of their better players during some of these practices so the kids on the bubble can have more ice time to be evaluated. Until the MSHSL starts including the outcomes in the records, I guess we'll agree to disagree on how much these "scored practices" count.

Good luck to your Wildcats, and I look forward to seeing them live on Pokegama in mid January.

While Blaine seems to have momentum, I'm leaning towards Burnsville in this game. Should be a good game, maybe not as high scoring as folks might think. I'll take Blaze 3-2

Bengals are in trouble here. After struggling against second tier teams like Centennial and East, they will finally see what a Top team looks like in this one - and they won't like it.

Burnsville 7, Blaine 3

I've been high on Blaine since seeing them drop 52 shots on Roseau to start the season. They have wave after wave of small, talented forwards and the D work the puck up to them very quickly & efficiently.. The question had been in G/D but they seem to be doing fine..

I saw Hill play Burnsville first game of year and give up 1 goal on 18 (?) shots.. Burnsville also lost to BSM while Blaine didn't and the Blaze have a loss to Eagan in their as well.. What I saw in the opener (and watching their 2 best players in about a dozen Elite League games) Is that Sheehy and Def. Teemu are very talented but quality depth is an issue.. 5-2 Blaine.. I figure Sheehy gets a couple so maybe 5-3 but definitely no closer than that...

We've been waiting for Burnsville to breakout for years...every season it's the same "the Blaze have all the pieces"..yet nothing. The same continues..very close game but not over the hump yet

Honestly, this shouldn't be close. Burnsville may even opt to give their backup goalie some ice in this one and save Mallon for the semis and championship games.

Blaze could win by as many as 4 or 5 in this one.

Burnsville 5, Blaine 1

3-1 Blaze Final! Blaine's D looked a bit rough. Sheehy stuck out but aside from him it didn't seem they had any real standouts up front, but they broke the puck out very cleanly and quickly. Sheehy will be a good player at the next level, good speed and great at creating scoring chances. Blaine needs to create better shots. They took a lot of their shots from far out and weren't legitimate threats to score on many rushes.

Two goals doesn't mean he is a standout...stats are nice but don't always reflect a player's talent (playing with good players). Not selling the kid short, that PP goal in the 3rd was a beauty, just saying from watching the game Burnsville seemed solid, but Sheehy was a clear and definite standout. My post wasn't discrediting anyone for the Blaze, but in this particular game which is the first I've seen of Burnsville, that Sheehy was the one creating the most opportunities.

Watched it online. Played out almost exactly as I expected with the 2 goal Blaze advantage. After watching both teams share the ice with our Wildcats it was pretty apparent to me that Blaine is a good team, but Burnsville is better.
