Weekend Recap

What Was Good

Michigan State: The Spartans have proved they're one of the best teams in the country so far. It's quite an amazing turnaround, and it's impressive how they're doing it with so litlte depth.

Colorado College: They picked up a sweep on the road with some very good defense and are now in sole possession of first place in the WCHA.

Bowling Green: Congrats on the first win of the season against Alaska.

Ohio State: Finally showed a little consistency with a sweep over Western Michigan

Michigan Tech: They got hammered on Saturday night, but at least came out of the weekend with two points, which is big news among the bottom three teams in the league.

Wisconsin: They've had a habit of letting off the gas on Saturday nights this year, and were a playing team with a history of getting blown out the first night and winning the second night, but Wisconsin managed two easy wins this weekend over Alaska-Anchorage.

Ferris State: Two shootout wins are meaningless in the greater scheme of things, but those extra points may help Ferris earn a coveted top four spot in the WCHA.

What Wasn't So Good

Michigan: You'd like to think this team would reach a low point where they got embarrassed so badly that it would help motivate them to turn things around, but I'm not sure how much worse they can be embarrassed. They've got soem pretty serious problems to correct.

Minnesota State: It took a lucky bounce late in Saturday's game for the Mavericks offense to reach 2 goals on the weekend in an important home series.

Notre Dame: They salvaged a second point out of six on Sunday with their shootout win, but this team is still nowhere close to playing up to their level.

Western Michigan: After a hot start, the reality of the CCHA is starting to set in.

Alaska-Anchorage: The biggest, fastest team to ever be -16 in goal differential.
