Re: Week 6 games

https://www.mngirlshockeyhub.com/game/show/29879283?subseason=697635&referrer=5878509 :shock: Saw this goalie play Blake 2 seasons ago (at Fogerty) and was impressed by her as an 8th grader. She is having a great season and appears to just get better and better. Great for her and Blaine. HUGE win ag...

Re: BSM/Tonka

Would be great to hear about the Tonka/EP game too. I was surprised that it ended in a 1-1 tie.

At least on paper it looks like a bad outcome for Tonka and a great one for EP.

Andover outscoring opponents 48-1 after first 5 games...wow. Only notable opponent in #6 Maple Grove (who they beat 7-0, shots 48-14).

Re: Week 3 game of the week

Will be interesting to see how the HF/Edina plays out. After games against Orono, Gentry and New Prague, the Hornets should be a step up in competition for the Fire. This may be a case of my missing some sarcasm on your part, but I predict... that will not be interesting. Edina will smoke HF. We ha...

Re: Week 3 game of the week

[Blake scoring 3 against Edina/Uma with a shot difference of only 38-24 no doubt caught some people by surprise. Edina is very strong, but a huge portion of their offense goes through Conner. She is a fantastic hockey player. I believe that 2 of the Blake were on the power play. This years team alr...

I expect Breck to be in the Section Semi again this year and am excited to see how Chisago Lakes does against them this week and again in Sections. My bet would be on Breck continuing its dominance but will be fun to see them challenged... Breck has lost arguably their 2 most significant players the...

Re: Mask recommendations?

My kid vacillates between the old school medical mask and the one that connects in her helmet. Definitely hard at times to see the puck at your feet thru the attached face shield but she sort of got used to it. Bauer also gave the team a bunch of their reversible cloth masks as they are a Bauer scho...

If you are interested in D1 college hockey this year this blog is a great follow for up to date games that will be televised (even if online) and has great recaps with highlights and more. The best spot for one-stop coverage before and after every hockey weekend this season. If your kid has ANY inte...

Re: Transfers 20-21

I am interested in knowing what a "cutting edge HS coach" does that makes him/her cutting edge? I would not say that recruiting (as in recruiting players to your program) makes you cutting edge (that seems to be the kids and parents job) and could/should get ugly if the coach is involved at all in t...

To the surprise of probably very few, the out of state teams are really really struggling against the locals. Philly has managed a 2-2 tie against Tradition White (U19). The three games at the U16 level for MSP teams have gone 7-1, 8-1, and 12-1. Thanks for the update 88. Anyone seeing any MN girls...

Lifetime Fitness has some pretty awesome FREE virtual classes...from strength to yoga...most hockey players I know (like my kid) would benefit by being more flexible...the yoga could be a great add on to other options 2x/week.
