Saturday Preview: Guddy Gets Back To Back Starts!

I'm not going to say that this is an absolute must win game for the Badgers, but we've already given up two points at home and we simply cannot afford to give up any more points at home this weekend.

St. Cloud State proved last night that they are worthy of their lofty ranking and we laid an absolute stinker. One of the biggest issues for this team this season has been trying to find a level of consistency. We did nothing to dispel that trend last night.

Tonight it's senior night, and you have to assume that our seven seniors are going to want to come out, and kick some ass. With that said, I like our chances.

EDIT: When I made the original post I had not seen Wisconsin's lineup yet. I'm very happy that Eaves has decided to go back to Gudmandson tonight. It's time for him to seize the role of the starting goaltender. Good move coach.
