we generated better chances this period than all of last game. Not many of our better ones even produced a sog, though. Kind of hard to score without that.
Real spirited play in that first period. I just desperately want to see a PSU goal out of this.
0-0 after one.
First period thoughts:
-Unbelievable tempo to the game, back and forth throughout the entire period. Yesterday the first period didn't match the pace of this one.
-Top line of Bailey-Holstrom-Gardiner again created the most chances.
-Defenseman have been pinching and putting themselves in the offensive play more frequently so far.
-Skoff was solid, made the saves he needed to. Also got some help from the defensemen in front of him making a few timely blocks.
-Shots are 11-10 in favor of Wisconsin.
-Penalty kill looked shaky at times, guys over-compensating for the amount of space and skating past their assignments. Wisconsin had a number of open looks towards goal.
Not a fan of the fishbowl facemask Bailey is rocking. Does he look like Crosby or is it just me?
I bet you $500 that wrestling or women's volleyball wins a national championship before all three of these teams. Considering wrestling is back to back national champs, and looking strong for a third, I'd say that is currently our best sport. Not including fencing because I stopped caring about fencing when I left campus.
0-0, 14:40 to go. Decent amount of sustained Penn State offensive zone possession yielded some good opportunities but didn't get any quality scoring chances.
Nothing wrong with looking like Crosby Drew, unless you are one of those fans of the orange and black.
The two comments weren't related, just two random thoughts. First time I saw a picture of him I thought he looked like Crosby, but there wasn't ever a proper time to say anything. After the facetime he got before the second figured more people might see it.
Skoff just kept this game scoreless on about four separate occasions. Great saves there. Wisconsin keeping some more pressure here, there's been some close calls.
0-0 with 9:10 to go.
INCREDIBLE glove save by Skof there......WOW!

Skoff has been nothing but outstanding!!!
Skoff is playing lights out tonight! Definitely glad we have him on our side. And to think he's only a freshman too.
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
I guess I know which Penn State hockey jersey I need to get!!! Skoff's The Man!!
He was originally committed to Ohio State for those who weren't following back when he committed. Was a workhorse in juniors too.
Four guys deep in the zone, then Yanis makes a mistake diving for the puck. He missed, 2-on-0 and Wisconsin capitalizes.
1-0 Wisconsin leads with 3:19 to go in the 2nd.
Yanis just cannot dive like that. Maybe coach Chambers will give him some Attitude points for the effort.
Skoff couldn't do anything about that. He has kept the boys in the game with a brilliant performance. This is all about getting more talent.
You called that right. No reason to have four guys that deep in the zone and leave one guy back. Never should have dove and took himself out of the play. Could have made it one on one against Skoff and I like our chances a lot better stopping one on one.
4-on-3 could make things interesting. LOTS of open space...
Be nice to get a power play goal with four on three.
1-0 Wisconsin leads after the 2nd period.
-Wisconsin took it to Penn State for the majority of the period, but it still had that open feel to it.
-Badgers notched 20 shots that period.
-As I stated before, Yanis can't leave his feet to dive for that puck as the only defenseman back. Also didn't need to have 4 guys below the hash marks.
-Like the chances Penn State created, need to get better shots on net to challenge the Badgers keeper.
-Overall much better from the Lions, we'll see if they can keep the intensity up for the final period of the season.
Still 1-0 Wisconsin, 14 minutes to go in the third. Nice bounce back by the Nittany Lions, Loik had a decent wrister.
Yeah, PSU answers right back. 2-1 Wisky.
will take the trade of goals.
No shutout tonight!
Oof, Skoff gonna want that one back. Got beat glove side on what looked like a routine save.
Holstrom scores literally 10 seconds later, 2-1 Wisconsin leads now with 13 minutes left.
