Denfeld has a shot tonight to end a long losing streak IMO

It's not that long--only a few years.

2013, so six years. I’m sure it feels longer to the Denfeld faithful than to East fans!

I believe the last time Superior beat DE was 2003...now that’s a long losing streak. Split with them in 1977 😉

And prior to that loss, you go back to 1995. 18 years. Sounds about right to the East faithful. :mrgreen:

2/17/04. 2/7/91 before that, so East has won 34 of their last 35 meetings. I was somewhat surprised to see that--I'd assumed Superior had fared somewhat better. Superior did have a stretch at the start of the 80's where they won four of five. I'm not that up on Superior history but it seems that they pretty much dominated Wisc. hockey during that time.

Fortunately Anoka got their last (likely final) two wins over DE in 2007 & 2015 😘🕺

Superior has as many HS State Titles as EDINA☝️But they
are in Wisconsin...and mostly in the 70’s, 80’s 90’s...

Down 2-1 in the 2nd period, East scores three in a :50 span to grab a 4-2 lead over Denfeld with 8:53 left in the period.

5-4 East early in the 3rd. Their three-goal lead has evaporated.

A bit nerve-wracking at times for the Greyhound faithful, but objectively, this was one of the most fun nights I've had at the Heritage Center in a while. Packed house, and the most even these two have been talent-wise in my memory (including the Denfeld 2013 win). Both teams were down a top player, with Finn Hoops out for East and Cooper McClure missing for Denfeld, which was a shame; it made Denfeld a bit top line heavy and left East's second line looking better than its top line for stretches (though the top line still did the bulk of the scoring). East came out trapping and had Denfeld completely bottled up for most of the first, but it cracked late in the period and Connor McClure scored; East leveled it on a PP late in the first, and after going down 2-1, rattled off four goals in the span of 1:22 and hung on from there.

If Denfeld can avoid some of the breakdowns they had in that brief span and get a little scoring depth, this team can certainly make a section final. And while East had some shaky moments in back, this team continues to round into form with a bit of offense despite lacking its top line center. Cole Christian gets more and more fun to watch every game.
