    When Yale beat Yale 6-0 on Saturday, did that count as a win, a loss, or both?

    Minnesota got outworked 5 x 5 this weekend by both St Cloud and Duluth, but managed to get two Ws (counting the shootout). They have a killer PP that managed to score 5 times last weekend. IMO, they are a very beatable team if you stay out of the box.


      Hey Husky boy, your team got beat 4-1. The other teams may have tried harder, but that doesn’t win hockey games. Your team can take home a smiley face sticker for its efforts!
