Weekend Open Thread

Use this thread for all of your pre/post game thoughts on the weekend.

There's game in the west that's already in the books. I really wanted to go with the "Mavericks Win Season Opener" headline, but sadly, it's looks like I'm gonna have to go with the other one: Fraud at Polls!(BTW, it'd warm my heart if anyone got that reference.)

Friday Games to discuss

Ohio State beat Lake Superior 1-0. Jeff Jakaitis made 47 saves, and still gets the loss. Joe Palmer gets a shutout in his first college start.

Michigan State easily beat Western Michigan 4-1. Jeff Lerg only had to make 14 saves to get the win. The Crowder-Kennedy-Abdelkader line had three goals.

Ferris State rebounded from last week's performance against Union to trounce Mercyhurst 7-1.

Michigan Tech scored with 3 seconds left in the game to beat Northern Michigan 2-1. That's a really disappointing loss for Northern Michigan. Tech outplayed the Wildcats though, outshooting them 39-19.

Minnesota cruised to an easy 7-1 win over Wayne State, as expected.

Michigan beat up on Alabama-Huntsville by a tune of 8-1. Hensick, Johnson, Kolarik and Rohlfs all had 3 points.

Miami cruised over Canisius by a score of 5-1.

DU beat St. Cloud in overtime, despite being outplayed pretty badly. DU's (sorta)all-freshmen of Brock Trotter, Rhett Rakhshani, and Tyler Ruegsegger got off to a hot start, with Trotter scoring the first two goals of the game. That almost changed when Ruegsegger took a 5 minute penalty late in the game allowing SCSU to tie the game. But DU won the game in overtime thanks to a Pat Mullen goal.

Duluth opened up their season with a 3-3 tie against UMass-Lowell.

North Dakota and Wisconsin was the game of the night. Darcy Zajac scored in overtime to give UND a 3-2 win. The bigger loss for Wisconsin was Jack Skille, Ross Carlson, and Kyle Klubertanz, who are all unlikely to play tomorrow due to injury.
