Badgers 4 Ugly Purple Jerseys 3

Blake Geoffrion was part of every Badger goal (1 goal, 3 assists) and Michael Davies netted a pair on the same PP to lift the Badgers to a 4-3 win over the land cows of Mankato.

In my opinion, if we are going to talk about the Hobey Baker and a Badger winning it, time to stop talking about Brendan Smith and start talking about Blake Geoffrion. Captain Asskicker is the COMPLETE player. 1st EV unit, 1st PP unit, 1st PK unit, the top leader on the ice (at least that is obvious to me). He finds a way to get things done and lift the team, and is leading the WCHA in scoring while doing it. He has turned into the player that every young man should model themselves after in terms of leadership and giving their best on the ice each night.

The transformation from the selfish out of control freshman to the player he is today is outstanding.
