Episode 14 of the Chasing MacNaughton Podcast from Tech Hockey Guide; “Keeping it Positive.” This week, Tim Braun, Rob Gilreath, and Dustin Lindstrom were joined by Michigan Tech color commentator, Dave Ellis to discuss (times are approximate):

  • MTU vs FSU (2:10)
  • WCHA Playoff Status (35:15)
  • College Goalies in NHL (44:08)
  •  “Stump the Schwab” Game (51:09)

It was great to have Dave Ellis on this week to discuss what he’s seen throughout the season in person. We answered some questions and played a game again this week with Dustin seeing if he could stump Dave Ellis and the rest of us. Let’s start with highlights of MTU’s sweep of FSU:

MTU @ FSU Friday 2/14/2020
MTU @ FSU Saturday 2/15/2020

We talked a lot about MTU and Dave threw out some stats on different goal situations, we took a stab at some questions from a few different places including our very own Mike Anleitner who wanted to know about college goaltenders making the NHL. Beyond this, I’m tired and going to bed. Maybe before this actually gets published I’ll create a sporcle quiz based on this week’s trivia question and see how everyone does. Dustin asked us to name every rink that Michigan Tech played in from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2019. There are 36 answers…how many do you think you could come up with? Ok I found time, take a stab at the quiz this week:
