I think this one could be a track meet. EP has the depth n better D but Blake’s top line might be the best line in the Tourney. 7-6 Blake

We'll see what the flow of the game looks like. EP will try to impose a somewhat more ordered style on things to control the pace and wear down that Blake top line and use their depth; if they can do that, they could just march along to the final. If it does turn into a true track meet, then I think that favors Blake since that top line is hard to contain. We'll see who wins the battle of the Axels (Aksels?) in net, too. I'll stick with my pre-Tourney EP pick but wouldn't be shocked either way.

Which top line has the better game tonight? Steeves and J. Mittelstadt for EP, or Miller and Best for Blake - that's what it will come down to in this one.

Eden Prairie is probably just thanking the hockey gods the officials intervened in the South/Hastings game or the Eagles would have been just another victim of the TRME steamroller!

So true. I'm pulling for Blake tonight as well. New team and I'm tired of EP in every sport. Granted if I knew HM would win both their next games, I'd rather beat EP...

Well EP had the better of the play in the 1st but no score. Blake looked really polished on their lone power play chance. I'd suggest EP stay out of the box.

0-0 After 1.

NWOT is the kiss of death in 2020. Every team I have pulled for has lost. Who do you boys want me to front runner for Saturday?
