Yeah, it's Friday . . .

Yeah, it's Friday, and I'm in Love, but unfortunately I'm also very pressed for time, as I have to finish up some stuff and get ready to go to Madison in time to make the women's game today.

So, this week's edition will be abbreviated quite a bit.

Badger Men v. UAA - Fri/Sat 7 PM CST

Gameday
TV: Friday FSN live, WHA tape-day; Saturday WISC live, WHA tape delay
Radio: WIBA 1310, yahoosports ($4.95 online)
Livestats: uwbadgers.com gameday

P. Johnson - Geoffrion - Gorowsky

Murray - Stepan - Davies
Bohmbach - Bendickson - Turnbull

Smith - McBain
McDonagh - Goloubef
Gardiner - Springer

Connelly
Gudmandson

I gotta tell ya, I'm happy to see Springer in the lineup tonight. I thought he did a pretty good job last Friday, and I'm looking forward to seeing him play tonight. Of course, I imagine that we'll see Little on Saturday, as that seems to be how things are going, and that's all right, too.

I haven't been covering the women (or anything, lately) as much as I should have, but Gandalf has been trying to pick up the slack (thanks, Gandalf), and if you didn't catch this recent post, go ahead and check it out. Good stuff. In the post, Gandalf links to this article by Andy Baggot, and I gotta give props to Andy for giving some love to the Badger Women.

Oh, and I gotta give a belated congratulations to one of my favorites, Meghan Duggan, for earning WCHA Offensive Player of the Week honors. Nice work, Meghan! (Gandalf says that Hilary Knight is the bomb, but I don't know, I think it might be Meghan . . . )
