Not much you can say about last night's game other than former Bismarck Bobcat goalie Ryan Faragher was solid in net again for the SCSU Huskies.
I thought UND played pretty well and had some decent chances and showed great speed through the neutral zone. Defensively, I thought they played well in the back in end. The forwards just couldn't bury their opportunities when they had them; you're not going to win many games scoring only one goal per game.
The UND forwards are also going to have to catch Faragher who is 6'2" moving because he can stop most of what he sees.
I thought that last night's game was a decent game to watch, I must admit that I am not a big fan of B2 broadcasts
, and I hope when the NCHC start play in 2013-14, that we will be able to see most if not all of the games on television.
Back to the game, lets give credit where credit is due, Faragher was definitely the difference in the game; every time UND put a decent shot on net Faragher was able to see the puck and was in position to make the save. UND didn't get as many chances down low as they could've as well. They are going to need to get a body to the net to cause some confusion in front of Faragher.
The "big story" coming out of Saint Cloud, is that Mike Lee is healing nicely and clue to returning and I don't know how Faragher isn't going to keep getting starts for the SCSU Huskies when Mike Lee returns to the line up for the Huskies.
Quickly the young Freshman goalie Ryan Faragher is becoming a nemesis for UND, in one season he now 2-1 against UND. Faragher has been impressive in both wins against UND this season as he made more than 84 saves and gave up only one goal in the two wins.
Injured starting goalie Mike Lee
has never beaten UND and is 0-4-1 against UND during his career at SCSU, but it doesn't seem to matter for the Huskies because they have Faragher waiting in the wings.
