SCSU vs. UND Alumni Edition

Husky Alum Matt Cullen!
How fitting with the SCSU vs. UND game coming this weekend?

Yesterday when the Minnesota Wild played against the Chicago Blackhawks on national TV, audiences got to see a couple of the most illustrious alumni from St. Cloud State (Matt Cullen/ MN Wild) and the University of North Dakota (Jonathan Toews/ CHI Blackhawks). As my wife is from Illinois and I am from South Dakota (South Dakotans generally cheer for MN based sports team...for obvious reasons) we were a house divided. I was really hoping the Wild would get the win, as nearly every Western Conference team is fighting tooth and nail for points; however, Toews and the Blackhawks ended up with the win 3-1. Luckily for Husky fans, we do have some bragging rights in that Matt Cullen scored the Wild's lone goal on a pretty play from Jared Spurgeon while Toews was held off the board. Don't get me wrong, because of my wife's team of choice I am cheering for the Blackhawks on every other night that they are not playing the Wild and I am a fan of Jonathan Toews (in fact I have a new Toews jersey from of my in-laws). The Minnesota Wild needs to get back some of their winning ways soon if they want to make the push for the playoffs. You can see the video recap here:

By the way, if you had not heard, Matt Cullen and John Madden has been named alternate captains for the remainder of the season for the Wild.

Bonus Alumni News:

Husky alum, Andreas Nodl does it all...he scores and he saves for the Philadelphia Flyers:

Go Huskies!
