---------------------------------

1. Since Last We Met

starts at 0:50

David runs down the series since the last HockeyCast. The team is playing better but cannot get over the hump. Obviously the biggest issue is scoring, but what else is going on? Defense is much improved, and goaltending from Strauss Mann has been stellar.

2. Team Lines/Pairings Debate and Minnesota Preview

starts at 25:51

We chat with Bailey about her observations of the team. How has the culture evolved? How can they take the next step to become a good program? What are they lacking? What is going well? The team seems closer to being good than their on-ice performance and results would indicate.
