  1. Bring home a win. It’s about time.

  2. Looks like this could be a tough one, LA is near the top of the table. The Hounds need to start scoring, 3 goals in 6 games is laughable.

  3. I’m going to have to look at the schedule, I need to get to the new field. I think my son will love it, probably more than baseball for him.

  4. DK: Long homestand coming up, Eric. Lots of stuff for kids, too, including a miniature soccer field right behind the Steel Army bleachers.

  5. All things considered, 2 draws on the west coast trip seems like a great result. Another lackluster performance offensively, but hopefully the offense will find its rhythm during the upcoming homestand. They put together some nice runs tonight, but either found themselves a step offsides or the midfielders just missing on the delivery. A lot of focus on compacting the defense in this one, and the back line looked solid for once, and had some nicely timed tackles. It was also nice to have the woodwork in the Hound’s favor for once, as Gilstrap was beaten a couple of times. Pretty apparent during these last 2 games that the Hounds were happy to play for the road draw, and given their start I can’t blame them. Nice to see Kutney get the start tonight as well, he certainly deserves the appearance. Am I crazy for passing up watching Pens playoff hockey on Thursday night for a trip to Highmark to watch the Hounds?

  6. This was, tactically, their best match of the season. They were defensively sound and were close to breaking a couple good offensive chances. Hopefully they are turning the corner and can rack up some points during this lengthy stay at home.

    I’ll be curious what the stands will look like on Thursday as the play opposite of a home Pens playoff game.
