Twitter: Goalie recalls when Roseau 'lit me up like a Christmas tree'
March 6, 2014 — 6:12pm
This is one of the reasons we like Twitter. After his Blaine team fell behind 4-0 early in the second period of the Class 2A hockey tournament six years ago, the starting goalie was pulled and Brent Hollerud took over in the nets.
Roseau went on to win 8-2.
Thursday, during the Roseau-Lakeville North quarterfinal game, Hollerud posted this:
In honor of Roseau being back in the Tourney, here's the box score from when they lit me up like a Christmas tree http://t.co/VoLZuSYP1c
We went looking and found a photo, from a different game, of Hollerud having more success in goal:
Blaine won this game 6-0.
Hollerud's tweet and a whole bunch more are on the Star Tribune's state tournament Superblog. You can follow it here.

The new president of baseball operations Derek Falvey and general manager Thad Levine could have used this week to make another splashy move as they begin rebuilding the organization, but so far they've followed the example previous leadership set by staying the radar.
