High scoring affair between UNO and Western Michigan. 3-2 already not even halfway through 2.

WMU lost to UNO early in Bubble Hockey by a 10-2 score, and have given up 8 & 6 goals in subsequent NCHC play in Omaho. So "High scoring affair" is a relative term.
Haha, I'm just getting into College Hockey more recently. Been enjoying it so far.
It's definitely an entertaining level of hockey, underappreciated by NHL fans. Keep posting - I get lonely here.
I've been trying to keep the Florida Panther board updated on their NCAA prospects. I've never watched this hockey before, although I saw live two games in Wisco versus Michigan State back in 2007. (My roommate in college was best friends with Brian Elliott).
That being said, I had no idea Arizona State even had a team, and every time I noticed them playing, they are winning. What gives?
SCSU seems legit. They were down 3-0 after 1 period.
I actually watched this game last night. I had a hard time telling if Saint Cloud was good, or Colorado College was not a good team.
I decided that CC wasn't very good.
You made the right decision. But in their defense, the Tigers did get a late start in Bubble Hockey while the league's preseason poll smartly ranked them 7th out of the 8 teams (Miami-Ohio bringing up the rear). So a 2-2-1-0-0-1 start for CC is actually a testament to their team's desire to compete, and running up an early 3-0 lead over an improving Huskies squad should give the Tigers even more motivation to improve. Overall, the Opening in Omaha has featured some very good hockey and will be something for all participants to remember - maybe even fondly?
The Devils - in their 6th season of NCAA D1 hockey play - managed to catch the Badgers squad flat-footed (relatively weak vs. previous years) for an early season two-game sweep in Madison, and took that momentum to South Bend to split with Notre Dame the following weekend. This week they've tied & won @ Ohio State to improve their overall record to 4-6-2, so it's looking like ASU's invitation to play with The B1G Boys has been accepted enthusiastically. The second half of their season should be interesting to follow.
@Cold Cat : I see from this recent NHL.com NCAA prospects article that Florida has a few Hockey East prospects. You might wanna keep an eye on the streaming schedule for future CBS Sports College Sports Live Hockey East games involving Merrimack, Northeastern, BC and UConn, to catch some free-to-watch games to see those young men play. Near term, UConn and sophomore D Carter Berger play at UMass-Lowell on Monday evening @ 5 p.m. ET which will be on the Hockey East free stream.
Thanks so much!
I am quite intrigued by Merrimack Zach Uens. He was their fourth round pick in the draft this season, and I can't wait to see him play. He hasn't suited up yet due to covid-19 .
Colorado College has some ugly jerseys.
Hey, hey now, don't go dissing the kit. There's a wide mix of plain & decorated jerseys across NCAA Div I hockey (both men & women), and I'm seeing a trend leading back to previous time frames when it was rare to see a team logo on a jersey. Admittedly, maybe CC could've shopped somewhere else for gear that didn't use generic beer league product with press-on lettering. But as long as their equipment manager has packed a travel iron and a needle & thread, it's Game On just like the rest of the Tigers' more nattily attired Bubble Hockey opponents.
