Craig Smith Crashes the Net Like Hirsch and Some Badger Notes
I've probably watched that video 25 times this week. Crazy Sconnies.
After getting heartily booed by their home crowd in a 1-0 loss Friday, (in which they failed to get off a single shot on TWO five minute powerplays) the Badgers get outshot 43-16 in a 4-2 loss Saturday. That, my friends, is a terrible weekend. Goaltender Gudmundson kept them in it all weekend with 63 saves, but obviously, as Craig Smith displayed above, there were some frustrations in Badger Nation. Speaking of goalies, it will be interesting to see how Crandall does against the Badgers, considering Eaves yanked his scholarship a couple years back.
More negativity: It was the first time the Badgers lost back-to-back in 61 games, and leading goal scorer Jordy Murray left Saturday with a concussion. Head Coach Mike Eaves said he'll play this weekend though.
Prediction: It all hinges on Friday. If the Badgers come out flat tUMD will roll to a sweep. If not, we'll just have to hope for points.
I'll leave you guys with Hirsch's masterpiece. Craig Smith, take heed:
