Duluth East at Elk River - Top Seed Championship, Feb 4 3:00

Post by TheHockeyDJ » Sun Jan 29, 2017 12:41 pm

East at the Elks on Saturday. I got East 4-2 with an EN. As Karl stated in his rankings, this game should set the top portion of the 7AA seeds. This game is Saturday at 3:00. Anyone know of any video streaming?

So the team that wins this game is the top seed in 7AA. Or in the drivers seat anyway. Should be interesting....

The Elk River and Duluth East schedules on the MSHSL website both list the gametime as 5PM. 3PM must be JV...

But....you may need to be there closer to 3 than to 5 to get a good seat!

Moved the game time up to allow Randolph to get back to Duluth for the Omaha at UMD tilt.

Yes...fingers crossed that our own internet signal that has worked at IRA, Greenway and Hibbing - will work at Elk.

We have the equipment, crew and announcer...will know 100% tomorrow after a site visit. Watch our Twitter feed for final green light.

I think Elk River will take the Hounds in this one. Should be a packed house for this one. Coach Randolph will have Duluth East well prepared though.

Heard he has been focusing on Superior most of the week. Just saying.

Ok, let's play. Karl can you give us the all time time series stuff when you get a chance?

East leads the all-time series 17-15-1, though they are 8-1-1 in the last ten and 8-1 in sections (7 of those in the last 8 years). As noted last year, it's been a very streaky rivalry, with the Elks winning the early 90s games, East taking over in the mid-90s, the Elks going on a long run of success from 99 to the mid-00s, and East owning ever since.

The top lines should match up well; the Elks have the more prolific 2nd line, but East's 3rd line is more productive than ER's. ER has those two senior D-I defensemen, but East is deeper on the blue line, rolling 6 D comfortably. So, I'd guess this came will come down to:

1. Goaltending
2. Coaching (biggest test to date for the new ER staff)
3. The mental game...ER can't have the wheels fall off like they did at Amsoil last year.

Looking forward to the road trip down. :)

Goaltending note, Duncan Weist has played in 4 of the last 5 for ER. Meyers had the Hill game.

I think winning this game is crucial for ER, more so than for DE, considering ER's unfortunate run of luck at Amsoil the past 5 years. ER beat Blaine 5-3 Thursday, but Jax Murray was pointless, which leads me to believe he still has some type of health issue, because when healthy he's the best finisher on their team. Now I differ with Karl in that having 2 D1 committed Senior D makes you the stronger team on the blue line, although I do think Lamaster & Paine are a strong pairing. This DE team lacks SENIOR stars, except perhaps Meirhoff, and that's a factor in these type of games and in sections. ER is a veteran team with Horn, Michelas & Murray all being seniors and a D1 committed soph in JP. So playing at home I'll give the edge to ER as long as their goalie (likely Meyers) has a strong game between the pipes.

I was a little concerned about East playing Superior last night, thinking the Hounds would be looking past that game. 8-1 East. Guess not. :)

where does Karl give the edge on D to ER??
