Week 8 Reaction: ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

John Stevens and Ryan Rosenthal

11/29/14: Northeastern 3, Minnesota 2

I’M GOING TO WARN YOU ALL RIGHT NOW.  THIS POST IS GOING TO BE IN ALL CAPS.

THIS SATURDAY YOUR NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY MEN’S ICE HOCKEY TEAM BEAT THIRD RANKED AND LAST YEAR’S RUNNER UP MINNESOTA.  THE HUSKIES DIDN’T JUST GET A COUPLE LUCKY BOUNCES (SCHEDULING ASIDE), THEY LEGITIMATELY OUTPLAYED THEM.  NORTHEASTERN POSSESSED THE PUCK WELL.  THEY WON ON THE FACEOFF DOT.  THEY DID IT.

NORTHEASTERN OUTSHOT MINNESOTA BY THIRTEEN.  THEY SOMEHOW MANAGED TO HAVE MORE POWERPLAYS THAN PENALTY KILLS (ALTHOUGH STILL MANAGED TO ALMOST BLOW THE GAME BY TAKING PENALTIES. GET IT TOGETHER).  THE ROY/HEDGES/MCMURTRY LINE CAME ALIVE (I UNDERSTAND THE ARGUMENT FOR PUTTING SZMATULA AND ROY TOGETHER, BUT HEDGES LOOKED GREAT CENTERING THAT LINE).  WITT WAS AMAZING AS ALWAYS.  BENNING KILLED A GUY.  EVERYTHING CAME TOGETHER FOR THE HUSKIES TO BEAT THE GOPHERS.  I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I WAS WATCHING A NORTHEASTERN GAME AND MY HEART WAS POUNDING LIKE IT WAS ON SATURDAY.  WHAT A GAME ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE END.  FANTASTIC GAME WINNER BY ROY AT THE END.  FANTASTIC WIN TO GIVE NORTHEASTERN THEIR 500TH AT MATTHEWS.  THE HUSKIES SHOWED THAT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO SKATE WITH ANYONE IN THE COUNTRY.  BIG WEEK COMING UP BUT THINGS ARE LOOKING UP FOR THIS TEAM AND I LOVE IT.
