Sunday reading: Bachman wins first NHL start (video); Saturday reactions (videos)

Former Tigers goalie Richard Bachman, pictured at left, recorded his first NHL win in his big-league debut Saturday night in Los Angeles as Dallas prevailed 2-1.

Here’s video highlights from the game and the game story, which mentions he will start at 5 p.m. Mountain on Tuesday versus the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The games will be broadcast on the MSG and Fox Sports Southwest networks.

“The final buzzer goes off, you can get that sigh of relief, especially in a tight game like that,” Bachman, who made 26 saves on 27 shots (.963 saves percentage), told “It’s exciting. It’s fun. You always dream about getting that first win. It’s a dream come true tonight.”

Now back to the WCHA and a look at Saturday’s results …

The best way to get some confidence? Host Alabama-Huntsville. Here’s notes on MSU-Mankato’s 9-1 win on Saturday and the Free Press’ game story. CC travels e)to Mankato this weekend.

Here’s Brian Gomez’s video (winning goal, post-game interviews) on the Tigers’ 4-3 win over Alaska-Anchorage and the game story.  Scott Winkler and William Rapuzzi are featured in the daily notebooks. Good stuff.

Bemidji State freshman Andrew Walsh made 36 saves for the win.

Things got a little ugly (new school view) or good (old school) with a shouting match between a Michigan Tech assistant andtwo of the Gophers coaching staff. Here’s the UM blog’s recap.

Here’s the Saturday Night Rewind from the Grand Forks Herald with observations and links to game stories about UND’s 1-0 home win over Nebraska-Omaha.
