[Game Thread] 5.1 vs. the Wilders

It would seem that it's a good thing that there isn't a long break before the series starts. They are probably feeling confident, I'm sure we are too. Let's Go!

It would be really nice to win game 1. The guys proved they can win if they don't but why go though that if you don't have to.

Go Wolves!
For a really bad officiating job call Harry Dumas. Contact the AHL for further details or other incomp-o-tant striped shirt idiots.

With games 1 & 2 on back to back nights, I expect a sluggish feeling out process early tonight as both teams are coming off game 5s. Dansk has been good so he'll need to continue to be if the Wolves come out flat. Once a big hit or a goal sets the tone, then they'll get down to business. With the Wolves as banged up as they are, an extra day off might have helped but they've been going well with next man up so here's another opportunity for somebody. Would like to see more of Wong and that relentless forecheck causing havoc.

Tomorrow will be a tougher test but get a win tonight and don't make it as much of an uphill battle the rest of the series.

It's really hard to guess what we will see, as the playoffs are a completely different animal. As long as we play our game & stay focused, we will be ok.

Great win, after a lousy 2nd Period. Nice feed to Glass for the winner. Was cool to see Wolfkeeper not working & wearing a jersey.

One of the rare times Iowa left a Wolves forward with space in the slot. Glad to see Glass take full advantage.

It was the game I expected...not a track meet, not overly physical, low shot totals. The Wolves had that golden opportunity at the end of regulation to win it on the PP but generated zilch. That needs to change.

Great to see Carr and Macek dressed. That will help a lot. Iowa clogs the neutral zone so its going to take quick puck movement to beat that. Wolves got to a lot of loose pucks and had sustained pressure, especially at the end of the 2nd. Passing could be better but still a good win to get right off the hop.
