The game that hardly anyone saw.

This is why I think the WCHA needs to have a WCHA network. MAYBE, channel 23 in Grand Forks, ND will pick up this game later this week. They do show other games around the league sometimes. I was able to watch the first game of the UMD and MSU-M series that happened a few weeks ago. I don't care what anyone says, the WCHA is the best college hockey league in college hockey and we can't see 35% our games on TV. I think these games like UAA and SCSU need to be on T.V. and not just on some crappy webcast. I would like to see a replay with the over head camera and the synced up with the game clock. Instead of being able to watch a good hockey game, instead I stomached Union and Clarkson (one sided game), B.C. and UMass (one sided game) and Cornell and QU (boring). I would also pay more money to see these other of market WCHA games on TV.

In St. Cloud, Minn., the St. Cloud State Huskies trailed 3-1 and 4-2 on the way to a tie. Anchorage managed just 19 shots on goal but got a goal and two assists from Kevin Clark. Ryan Lasch had two goals for St. Cloud State. On the tying play, St. Cloud State was on a power play and pulled goalie Dan Dunn for a two-man advantage. After Hanowski scored, the goal was reviewed. "Right away (the referee) signaled 'goal,' so you're thinking -- or you're hoping -- that he's right," Hanowski told the St. Cloud Times. "We got to the bench and, you know, I know the horn went off before (the puck) hit the twine in the back of the net. So you're nervous, especially since they're taking awhile to look at it. But it ended up being good and it's a big relief." [Rink and Run]
A conspiracy theorist might ask did Motzko buy his team a break with his end of game tirade last weekend. What do you think? Just think that 0-27-4 streak was in jeopardy of becoming history when the unexpected happened.
