Husky Hockey time!

In a few hours, the Husky's, of my alma mater, the St Cloud State University, will lace the skates up and take on Maine. It's NCAA playoff time!

Many have written the Husky's off, saying they won't be able to win the big game, being 0-6 in NCAA playoff games previous to today.

Why am I so pumped up? Two words.

Bobby Goepfert.

In all my years of watching Husky hockey, BG is by far the best goaltender we have ever had, or the best that I have ever seen in the National Concrete Center. He did not fare very well at the Excel Energy Center last weekend.

Bobby is going home to New York now and, the champion that he is, he does not want to play his final college game in New York. It's a great homecoming for BG. He played his first two seasons with Hockey East power Providence. He has experience in these East Coast arenas, with the fans, and the programs.

BG is going to prove the skeptics wrong, put the Husky's on his back and take us to St Louis...

A WCHA final of North Dakota / St Cloud will be a thing of beauty.

Look for some quick goals from the Husky squad tonight!
