Men’s hockey: Badgers seek to prolong season at Big Ten tournament

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s hockey team will get a chance to salvage the worst regular season in program history this weekend, but it’s going to have to nearly double its total wins.After victories in just four of their first 34 games, the Badgers (4-25-5, 2-15-3 Big Ten) head to the Big Ten tournament this weekend in Detroit, where their season will likely come to an end. UW would have to win three straight games and the Big Ten tournament title to secure an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.But despite the tall task of winning out, head coach Mike Eaves is optimistic about his team’s improvement in the second half of the season heading into the conference tournament.“It’s a brand new start. It’s a beginning, and I think it raises that thought of hope for us,” Eaves said. “We have, in the second half, talked about playing our best hockey coming into March, and we have done that.”However, Wisconsin opens with Michigan Thursday night, a team it has yet to beat this season in four games. In the first series with the Wolverines, UW jumped out to a 4-1 lead early on in the second period, but ended up allowing six straight goals in a 7-4 loss. After those first four goals in the first game, the Wolverines ended up outscoring the Badgers 20-2 in the final three and a half games.The road trip to Michigan featured slightly closer games, but still resulted in 3-0 and 5-2 Michigan wins.“They lead the country in offense, and we saw that firsthand here,” Eaves said. “We played them much tighter in their building. Even Red complimented our team [on] how the second series was closer.”Going up against a team in Michigan that averages 3.88 goals per game, Wisconsin will have a tall task on its hands. Wisconsin hasn’t scored more than two goals in a game in more than a month, which coincidentally was its last win, a 3-2 victory over Ohio State Feb. 14, and has scored more than two goals in a game only seven times. The Badgers have also been shut out in five of their last seven games.After two conference tournament championships the last two seasons for Wisconsin, the Badgers will have to start fast if they hope to reclaim a tournament crown for the third straight year.Wisconsin will also have to do it in a different venue, as this year’s Big Ten tournament will take place at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, following 14 straight years for the Badgers at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.“The next time the tournament comes up to go to Detroit, that arena won’t be there,” Eaves said of the only opportunity to play in the historic NHL barn. “They are building a new arena for the Detroit Red Wings, and this arena, excuse the pun, but it reeks of history, like spilled beer and cigarettes and championships gone by.”Should Wisconsin win in the first game against Michigan, it would take on Michigan State in the semifinals. The Badgers did manage one win against the Spartans this season, but then got swept in the final three games against MSU, all by a score of 3-0.  Spartans’ goaltender Jake Hildebrand has keyed the Spartans’ success this season, with the second-most shutouts in the country (6) and the ninth-best save percentage (93.0).Goaltending could also be a key to Wisconsin’s success in the tournament. UW has relied heavily on Joel Rumpel throughout the season, and despite less than average numbers compared to the rest of his career, Rumpel has kept Wisconsin in most games. Despite allowing the fifth most goals per game in the country as a team, Rumpel still has managed a .904 save percentage.But considering Wisconsin is the fourth-worst offense in the country, the Badgers’ attack will have to support Rumpel to keep the season on life support.“Hope is a great thing,” Eaves said. “This time of year, how many Cinderella stories have been written in March through basketball or hockey? We will find out together if we can write one of those stories again.”Game VitalsWhat: Big Ten men’s hockey tournamentWho: Wisconsin vs. Michigan StateWhere: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, MichiganWhen: Thursday, 7 p.m. Televised on the Big Ten Network.WisconsinLeading scorers: Grant Besse (11 G, 11 A), Joseph LaBate (6 G, 12 A), Morgan Zulinick (5 G, 10 A)Probable goaltender: Joel Rumpel (4-22-4, 3.43 goals-against-average, 90.4 save percentage)Michigan StateLeading scorers: Matt Berry (11 G, 17 A), Mackenzie MacEachern (11 G, 14 A), Michael Ferrantino (12 G, 11 A)Probable goaltender: Jake Hildebrand (17-15-2, 2.12 GAA, 93.0 save percentage)last_img read more

Alpena Township residents react to budget at Monday night board meeting

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisResidents brought their concerns over the Township’s finances to the board meeting, addressing everything from ambulatory services, to insurance costs. Alpena resident Russ Rhynard says, for starters, the budget allocations are confusing.“Well when you try to figure out what individuals are receiving salary and benefits, it’s impossible because the line items lump together everyone in a department. So if you’re in the clerk’s office, there’s several employees, and you’re the supervisor and you have an assistant, part of the assistant’s budget is lumped in with any benefits the supervisor receives.”Beyond the salary payments, there are some mixed feelings about the distribution of tax dollars as whole.Rhynard says, “…Add a litle less [money] to Thunder Bay Island, who, only a select group of folks are ever going to go out there and see the improvements of that island. It’s a good historical preservation, but I don’t know that the Township should fund that much of it.”Township Supervisor Nathan Skibbe, says the board has faced some limitations in the way they present the budget due to state requirements.“We need to do a better job with working within the parameters with the unfortunately reality of the uniform chart of accounts in the state of Michigan…[that means] creating footnotes to explain department salary expenditures. That is a huge thing. I think that would probably be one of the biggest things that has been misconstrued.”The board is doing everything it can to accommodate community members amid the frustrations.Supervisor Skibbe says, “We listened to the people at the budget hearing last night and the subsequent meeting following, and we’ve listened to the those recommendations and we’ll continue to move forward with adding as much transparency and information as possible.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, alpena township, Board, BudgetContinue ReadingPrevious Photo of the Day for Tuesday, March 26Next A number of prescribed fires scheduled for this weeklast_img read more

Man filmed himself beating up ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend on stag party

first_imgA lifeguard filmed himself beating up his former girlfriend’s new boyfriend after the pair went on a stag party together.Josh Moffitt attacked Joshua Murdock outside a bar in Letterkenny, Co Donegal on March 11th last. The pair had spent the day in eachother’s company but things turned nasty when Moffatt began to ask Mr Murdock about his ex-girlfriend.Without warning, Moffitt attacked his victim outside McGinley’s Bar on Letterkenny’s Main Street.He punched Mr Murdock and then filmed him with his phone while he kicked him in the face.The innocent victim was left covered in blood and also suffered deep wounds over both eyes for which he had to be hospitalised and receive stitches.Moffitt, aged 25, appeared at Letterkenny District Court where he was charged with assault.Solicitor for Moffitt, Mr Patsy Gallagehr said his client had been drinking heavily at the stag party and although he had no memory of what happened, he accepted full responsibility for it.“This should never have happened and he only realised what he had done when the alcohol left his system,” said Mr Gallagher.He added that the entire incident had had a profound effect on Moffitt and his circle of friends.Moffitt, of Avonbrrok Gardens, in Coleraine, Co Derry, had no previous convictions, the court was told.Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until December 17th for a community service and probation report as well as asking the Probation Service to see if this was a suitable case for restorative justice between Moffitt and his victim.He also asked for a victim impact statement from Mr Murdock.Man filmed himself beating up ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend on stag party was last modified: October 19th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackcourtdonegalJosh Moffattlast_img read more
