  1. “Expose” Faulkner?

    The guy is a 5th year senior who led the nation in shut-outs 2 years ago.

    He’s not the freshman, the other guy is!

    • The point was that he hasn’t face a lot of shots this year. He may have
      led the nation in shutouts two years ago, but last year he was 5-9-2,
      GAA of 2.93 and a save % of .886. This year he is playing more like the
      goalie of two years ago, but he has been up and down.

  3. I really like this Saunders kid, plays with poise and an edge that compares with Dell. Unfortunately Gothberg hasn’t been as good, not terrible, but he hasn’t lived up to the hype. I watched him quite a bit in Fargo last year for the Force. Just goes to show you the level of competition in the WCHA.

  5. Norwich’s five game winless streak is all against Elmira, right? They haven’t gone five games without winning… the story is not clear.
