Heavyweight battle between Nos. 1 and 2 is a split, Ice Breakers, Michigan Tech, the ongoing statistics debacle: Weekend Review college hockey podcast Season 4 Episode 1

Hosts Jim Connelly, Derek Schooley, and Ed Trefzger look at last weekend’s action, including the split between No. 1 Minnesota State and No. 2 St. Cloud State, Boston College’s Ice Breaker win, Michigan Tech’s sweep at Wisconsin, and Atlantic Hockey’s three Friday wins vs. Big Ten teams.

Also in the mix:

• A successful offside challenge kept a potential Ohio State tying goal off the board at Bentley – do we like those challenges? And what about video replay in general?

• The demise of College Hockey Stats continues to be felt as the difficulty getting accurate statistics and boxes is an inexcusable debacle that needs to be addressed immediately.

• What are coaches looking for in early season games? Derek gives us his insights.
