NCAA First Round: Friday Line Chart vs Vermont

Well the time has finally come. You win, you move on. You lose, you go home. The first one to win 4 straight games wins a glorious wood trophy and individual rings for all it's members. Does Wisconsin have what it takes to go on a run? I think they do, but the time is now for them to prove it to the rest of the nation.

Tonight we open with the Catamounts from Vermont. What is a Catamount you ask? I have no freaking clue. I'm not worried about these tree hugers. The best thing about Vermont is that it isn't in Canada. Or is it?

We're going to need to be firing on all cylinders right from the get go tonight. All four lines need to be rolling, the power play needs to be clicking, and we need to stay out of the box. Most importantly, Goody needs to be sharp.

BTW, Podge broke a piece of glass in practice at the X with a slapper already this weekend. Hopefully he's ready to play.
