Well, it took them 9 games into the season, but the Toronto Maple Leafs are FINALLY 1-7-1. They did it by roasting a Duck in Anaheim, but it was touch and go for a while there (groan). Niklas Hagman got a hat trick, Tomas Kaberle had 5 points, and Matthew Stajan got a penalty and 3 assists. (Hmm... wonder if they took a page out of Tampa Bay's book and did strip-shootout too...)
Between Saturday morning and now (Tuesday), Jacob Dowell has been recalled twice. And this is after he played in Friday night's Rockford drubbing of the Milwaukee Admirals (6-1, Rockford win). Rockford played Saturday in Peoria but Dowell was in Chicago, playing for the Blackhawks against Nashville. Jonathan Toews and Brent Seabrook were injured in the game against the Canucks about a week ago and have not skated since then. (Stupid Willie Mitchell) Dowell was called up as the Blackhawks had enough Defence but not enough forwards.
The Badger women keep splitting series with the schools they go up against. They lose the first one and win the second.
The Badger men... are 1-2-1. Thus far it's a better start than they got to last season (0-6-1 in their first 7 games)... so here's hoping...
Rockford plays the Admirals again this coming Saturday, but I don't know whether or not there are plans to do other things.
