CC's Rau and Bachman honored by WCHA

Center Chad Rau was named offensive player of the week by the WCHA for the second week in a row. Rau earned his first collegiate hat-trick Friday against Denver, which included his league-best fourth game-winning goal of the season. The Tigers' top scorer, Rau ranks third in the conference in overall scoring with 15 points (9 goals and 6 assists).

Freshman goaltender Richard Bachman picked up rookie of the week honors for the second time this season, his third overall honor from the WCHA. Bachman, who lost his first WCHA game Saturday, stopped 52 of 56 shots in the series. Bachman's 8-2 overall record leads WCHA goaltenders.

Curtis McElhinney replaced Kiprusoff in the second period tonight.

Well he should get the kiprusoff payscale then

Kipper really got his bell rung by a hard shot and then gave up his third goal. McElhinney came in and stopped all 11 shots he faced in the remainder of the second period. At one point in the third period he had given up two goals on four shots. He should have stopped the first goal, but his team allowed a 4 on 2 break and there was nothing he could do on the second goal.
