PucKato hasn't forgotten about you. It just took some time off around the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Mavericks are preparing for their second home game and first home series of the season, which I opined on in today's Free Press (beware the giant bald head if you click here). We'll see if a little home ice can cure what's ailing MSU right now.
A leftover nugget from the column: Minnesota State has played just one home game so far. The WCHA team with the next fewest home games at this point is North Dakota with five. Michigan Tech has played eight home games. Colorado College, Denver and Minnesota have played seven apiece. Minnesota Duluth, St. Cloud State, Alaska-Anchorage and Wisconsin have each played six games at home.
