Keys to the Game
- Get the rust out- The first real action of the year comes against a youthful Duluth squad.
- Stay out of the penalty box- Games with Duluth tend to get a bit chippy. Don't get drawn into unnecessary penalty minutes.
- Pressure the Goaltender- There's a goaltender battle happening up North, so the guy starting is already under some additional pressure. Go ahead and crank that up to 11.
