Mike Connolly's Ridiculous Behind-the-Back Pass & Some Tech Notes

Northland's NewsCenter was kind enough to post highlights of Saturday's win online, so now you can all see Mike's magic for yourselves. Stick tap to Rink and Run for the link.

A few notes on this weekend's series before I go.

  • Michigan Tech is bringing two busloads of band nerds again this year, so we'll have to bring our A game in drowning them out. A couple of quick goals would definitely help our cause.
  • Michigan Tech was off to it's best start since 1972-73 by going 3-0-2 in its first five games. Pretty pathetic. Last weekend they were idle and before that they were swept handily by Wisconsin, which means we should sweep them handily this weekend.
  • A lot of their quick start was due to their PP. They're 11/36 (30.6%) this year with the man advantage, which is second-best in the WCHA, behind Wisconsin. We're not too shabby ourselves, going 13/51, but our PK is ranked 7th in the WCHA. I'm feeling a shutout sometime this weekend. It just feels like we got the mojo this year.
