Badgers Win!

The Badger Men finally got their first win, and I'm pretty excited about it!!! They defeated the Fighting Sioux 5-2, with all Badger goals coming in the 3rd. Pretty impressive 3rd period for the Badgers, especially when they were outscored by a gazillion goals in the 3rd period in previous games. In the 3rd tonight, they actually outshot the Sioux 14-7 and scored on the 1st 3 shots of the period.

I didn't see tonight's game (caught the last half of the game on the radio), but it sounds like Stepan and Gorowksy had great nights. I think Osiecki called Stepan the best forward for the weekend. He played well offensively (2 goals this weekend), and Osiecki said he played well defensively as well (very good back-checking, Oz said). I heard Gorowsky's name quite a bit in the 3rd, and he actually double-shifted some near the end of the game. In case you missed it, Gorowsky and Bohmbach started on the top line with Geoffrion tonight. By the way, during the broadcast Cerniglia said that Goro has the best wrist-shot on the team.

I'll link up the game stories tomorrow morning . . .
