The Real Deal

I know I said I would post after last weekend's matchups. But I didn't.

Long story short, the Wildcats downed Tech on Friday and fell to UMD the next night. But tonight is when it really starts.

The Wildcats play host to the Michigan Wolverines (1-1) in their first conference series of the year. Despite losing a ton of fire power after last season, the Wolverines are perennial contenders and Chad Kolarik and Kevin Porter will test the Wildcat defense.

The Wolverines are much like the 'Cats in that they are fielding 12 freshman on their roster.

Wolverine goaltender Billy Sauer has allowed seven goals in his first two games while earning a .841 SV%. He looks like the Sauer of early last season and could be a weak point in the Wolverine D.

The puck drops in the first game tonight at 7:35.
