Game 6: UMD at St. Cloud State

ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- Listen, I'm not going to complain about the officials. Frankly, it's not like they have it easy down there, trying to judge diving without the benefit of a higher angle or replays.

But let's be serious for a moment, and not pretend that certain players for St. Cloud State (COUGHROELASCHCOUGH) are never guilty of such a heinous thing.

In fact, after watching these guys perform their magic again Friday night, I'd go so far as to say that you're never going to see them get called on it, and the only way around it is to keep your sticks and hands off, unless you can pop them with a hard, clean hit.

Anyway, one point is better than none, which this team had gotten in too much of a habit of getting here. Let's rock it for Game 2. Here are the lines.

Fulton - Connolly (Jack) - Fontaine
Danberg - Bordson - Connolly (Mike)
Schmidt - Akins - Flaherty
Hendrickson - DeLisle - Grun

Palm - Montgomery
Olsen - Lamb
Olson - Huttel

Hjelle - Reiter

Mosey - Roe - Lasch
Hanowski - LeBlanc - Festler
Christian - Marvin - Volpei
Peckskamp - Oslund - Ryan

Barta - Raboin
Gaudet - Hepp
Lauridsen - Johnson

Dunn - Lee - Hardy

For UMD, Scott Kishel is out with an upper body. Olsen's virus has gone away enough for him to play. Palm is playing back-to-back games for the first time since his offseason surgeries.
