Game 5: Denver at UMD

You know, it's almost too nice outside.


We're here and ready to open the NCHC season with a two-game series against Denver.

What's that picture? Well, it's something covered by a black curtain. That's what it is.

Oh, you want a more specific answer?

I haven't been told, but my senses indicate it's the banner that will commemorate Bill Watson's jersey retirement in the first intermission of this Friday night tilt. Something tells me I don't have to be told, because it seems somewhat obvious.

Watson will join us in the Glass Case of Emotion after the second period for what should be an interesting conversation. I'm not sure I've ever had a boring conversation with Bill.

Anyway, Denver brings another member of the Shore family (junior center Quentin), one of the top defensemen in the country (Joey LaLeggia), and a goalie carrying a .976 save percentage (no, not Sam Brittain, it's Evan Cowley).

Same ol' Pioneers.
