Oh, we’ve got a few questions:
- Can Craig Pierce keep up his goal-a-game pace?
- Will Johnny Griggs have his A-game this weekend?
- How will the boys adjust to the first road trip of the year?
- How does Coach Kurt Kleinendorst like his eggs?
- Can the boys get a win?
My answers? I hope so; I hope so; I bet they do well; scrambled; yep.
We’ve seen the improvements that this team has made in a short period of times in knowing Coach’s systems better each game. Yes, Johnny saw a lot of shots on Saturday, but he told me that they were mostly perimeter shots that he saw very well. Can the Chargers go on the road and face a St. Cloud team that has to be smarting after to road losses to UNH? That is the big question. The USCHO people sure don’t think so; they ranked Mankato toward the bottom of the WCHA pre-season, and both have St. Cloud #4 in the league. I will undoubtedly be a tough test. Oh, and there’s the fact that Huntsville’s Nic Dowd is a Huskie.
Anyway, here’s how you catch the game:
I will try to do recaps of road games whenever possible this season, but I am definitely out for tonight and probably out for tomorrow night with other commitments. Michael, you’d certainly be free to do one if you wanted—it definitely doesn’t have to be me.
