While UMD was beating the snot out of Minnesota State, and Kevin Pates was racing to complete his game story before I left Mankato without him, Denver was busy rallying from an early deficit to break Michigan Tech's one-game unbeaten streak.
Along the way to the win, this happened.
That's Denver freshman defenseman David Makowski with the 185-foot goal. At least, that's my guess on the distance. It gave Denver a 3-1 lead on their way to a 5-1 victory.
As they say, it looks like a twisted wrister in the box score. See? You wouldn't have a clue.
Then again, it was a twisted wrister.
Only from 180 feet away.
Poor Kevin Genoe. He played well Friday, helping the Huskies to a 3-2 win that snapped their 26-game winless streak.
Then he lets in that clunker.
Good, by the way, for Deron Cousens of Tech. The co-captain got back to his goalie and consoled him almost immediately. That's what you need to do in that situation.
The headline for this post, of course, came from this classic.
