USHL Playoffs

On the day Cornell fans officially heard the news of David McKee's early departure, one of the young men who will compete for the honor of being the next Big Red goalie took to the ice in Des Moines, Iowa, and reminded the Lynah Faithful that October is not so far away. Troy Davenport helped his Buccaneer mates to a 2-0 lead in their first-round series with Green Bay by stopping all 17 shots on goal in the Bucs 6-0 win. For his effort, Troy was awarded the Game's 2nd-Star. Troy has played the first two games in the series, and given the Bucs pattern of giving (roughly) one out of three starts to New Hampshire-signee, Brian Foster, it'll be interesting to see who goes tonight as the series moves to Green Bay.

In the USHL's other series featuring a future member of the Big Red, the Lincoln Stars also skated off to a 2-0 start in their first-round matchup with Omaha, beating the Lancers 5-2. Lincoln's Justin Milo picked up an assist in the win.
