  1. "There's no such thing as bad publicity." I'm just thankful for any coverage we get. At times, a casual fan doesn't even know we have hockey.
  2. I saw Jesse after the game in the tunnel, holding his nose with hand and signing autographs for kids with the other. What a guy.
  3. Big Weekend for the boys. Roanoke Times Story
  4. Interesting season series, for sure. Home ice doesn't seem to mean a lot. The Dawgs are 4-3 versus the Marksmen in Fayetteville, winning the total goals battle 18-17. In Roanoke, the Marksmen are 4-1 versus the Dawgs and have outscored Roanoke 22-16. Add it all up and the Marksmen have won 7 of 12. Eight of the twelve games played have been one goal affairs. One game left in Roanoke on March 23rd, which could certainly have playoff potential.
  5. Thank you for angering the hockey gods. The Dawgs needed those two points tonight!
  6. Got some video on WSLS tonight, include Witzel's fight. It's a shame the story couldn't have been of a win. WSLS Channel 10
  7. Here's the Roanoke Times story. Dan doesn't pull any punches on some of the calls tonight: "They’ve got divers all over the place. We have some pride and our guys get up, so we don’t get those calls. “I don’t know what to do. Maybe we have to get our guys to start laying on the ground and whining more. Maybe that’s the answer.” Roanoke Times story
  8. The Dawgs' website has us playing Knoxville on MLK Day.
  9. Gutsy road win, outshot 35-17. Heck of a job by Tanner and the entire team. Now let's get back home and get the sweep!!!!
  10. Barone got the start tonight for Newfoundland and took a tough 2-1 loss, making 26 saves on 28 shots.
  11. Barone came in after the 5th goal - no goals against I believe a nice save or two. That's the second game in a row that Caffrey has gotten pulled.
  12. Great news! Always good to have the Goalie of the Year on your team. Still a huge decision to be made with 3 goalies currently on the roster. Glad I'm not in Dan's shoes.
  13. Merry Christmas to all - friend and foe alike. We all share a love for this sport regardless of jersey. Hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas.
