Tiger Fans Breathe Sigh of Relief

Brett Sterling says there is a "98 percent chance" that he will be back in the lineup this weekend against St. Cloud State. In the Gazette article, Sterling makes it clear that he wants to play and it would take a significant setback to keep him off the ice, "Whatever we've got to do to make myself ready, I'm going to be ready. I've got to play." How much pain would Sterling have to be in to sit out this weekend? "It would have to be pretty bad. It better be like not being able to walk." Having Sterling back should provide a nice spark to a CC offense that's been lacking its number one scorer for the past game and a half.

The article also mentions freshman center Chad Rau. You've probably noticed that Rau's been on a hot streak lately, but even I didn't realize just how hot. Rau has six goals and seven assists in the past nine games for CC - very impressive numbers for a freshman. His season totals so far are 13-16-29. He's also proved that he can get it done in crunch time with his heroic goal against Denver on Friday.

Great news, I just hope he is able to contribute in a major way this weekend. You could definetly tell when he "left the house" in the 2nd period last Thursday night.

For sure - when he had to leave it really took the wind out of CC's sails.
