COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Scott Sandelin wants points this weekend. Badly.
"We have to go in there and build off what we did Saturday," Sandelin said earlier this week. "It's a big weekend, because we don't play next weekend. These are critical points for me, if you want to stay in any type of race, important points before we get to December."
Against winless Colorado College, which has been outscored 38-15 in ten games, it better not be an assumption in that room that anything is going to be easy. When your opposing goalies are stopping pucks at an alarming rate (.941 team save percentage for UMD opponents so far), you haven't scored more than three goals in any game, and you have a grand total of eight goals in a five-game winless streak, you've lost the right to rest on your laurels.
It's time to go. It's time to turn things around. I strongly feel UMD is one bounce away from starting a tidal wave of positivity, but the Bulldogs have to keep working hard before that bounce will ever come.
