Particularly is this technique
effective when carrying the puck,
for, unlike Michigan's defensive
pair, the Minnesota blueliners do
carry up the black bounder oc-
casionally. When he gets a yard
or two away firom the opposing
defense men (in this case, Smith
and Simpson), our friend Mr.
M. lets fly with the puck, holds
his stick out in front of his mid-
riff, and charges forward, letting
the bodies fall where they may.
His colleagues on the back line,
Kroll and Bredeson, are neither
as effective on defense nor as

on offense, but their ability to de-
posit opposition forwards in the

sneered at. It one conlomnes tie

St. Vincent, a product of the same
Iron Range school of hockey as Ma-
riucci, is probably better than Michi-
gan's reserve trio. On defense Minne-
sota has the edge. In the nets, there
is only confusion in Minneapolis.
Marty Falk, who did a creditable job
against Toronto in the Christmas
series, will not play, and efforts are
being made to find a substitute.
Whatever luck Coach Armstrong may
have, our own "Spike" James will
probably give the Maize-and-Blue an
edge in the nets.
But I stray from my original point,
Corporal L., which was to express my
regret that you are not among those
going up to Minneapolis to cover for
the so-called newspaper of which you
presume to be the quondam sports

most inevitable battles which will
accompany the relatively unimport-
ant business of opening the 1938 Big

good individual would hand you one,
Lieutenant L., perhaps even with a
hockey stick, thus justifying forever
my high opinion of the Minnesota
hockey team of this current year.
