Live Blog - Stars at Roughriders 10/25

I wish I had time, but I've got WAY too much stuff going on today to write up a postgame report for the Des Moines game from last night, and a pregame report for this game. Just too busy. My apologies. I'm not used to these Sunday games. Stars lost 3-2 to the Bucs last night in Des Moines. It was Lincoln's third loss in a row. The Stars are now 3-5 on the season, and in a tie with two other teams for last place in the USHL West Division. :(

This afternoon, the Stars will take on one of the top teams in the USHL, the Cedar Rapids Roughriders. The 'Riders play smart, disciplined hockey...especially at home, so the Stars cannot fall back into "stupid penalty mode" and expect to win this game. CR plays a european-style of hockey, and they aren't afraid to dive to draw a penalty. Lincoln has to play smart today if they want to give themselves a chance to win this one.

Faceoff is at 4:05pm.


Use this article to comment throughout the game if you wish. I doubt I'll be around to blog live. I hope to see another good turnout.

Go Stars.

Rayner, O'Leary, Tate, Siers, and Hanson are the scratches again today.

I had a chance to watch CR in Sioux city this fall and they were extremely good. Hopefully we can hang with them today...

Ammon is also a scratch (injured). Hope team starts getting healthy. Hear the cowbells already - yuk! Go Stars!

i had to be outside at my sons last fall UNL baseball game. plenty cold out there for me. glad thats over now.
good job to the stars for not just totally giving up on this week and coming out for a good win.

Apologies Yeti and I have been too busy to write a game recap, but I'm sure one of us will get to it tomorrow. All I can say is awesome game. Ben Lynch gets 2 goals on his old team and Jared Coreau shows up big. Also nice to see Ryan Dzingel play well this weekend. It will be interesting to see if Jimmy decides to keep him around permanently. Did anyone see his goal on B2? It sounded like a terrific one-man effort. Melbye said he took a shot and it got blocked and then as Cedar tried to skate it out he picked off the puck and turned in the circle and sent one over the goalie's glove from an odd angle. Very impressive. Good to see us back in the win column. Let's get some consistency!

li-studios.. went to tri-city site and saw they just dont know how to blog yet!!!

besides the nice win on sunday, i noticed that we out shot des moines sat and did a much better job on penalties.
today we did get out shot, had coreau get a penalty and brockett had 3 chance to sit in the sin bin, but we still held them to just 1 goal.
lynch, 2 goals and dzingle, 1 goal, got 1st and 2nd star of the game...
not too bad considering the other 3 games this week.
time to start working our way back up the standings!!!
