A split with Notre Dame as our favorite team is still very hit or miss this season. But they DID at least secure home ice for the first round of the BigTen Playoffs. Now who they will end up playing is anyone’s guess with how messed up the B1G standings are with 1 week to go. But this week Minnesota has a non-conference game against Arizona State. We discuss all of this on the podcast […]
Minneapolis, MN – Coming into the weekend series against Notre Dame, the Gophers knew a few things to be true: 1) They just about needed to win out to have a chance at an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament. 2) They had a good chance to play the first round of the Big Ten tournament on home ice with at least one win. After a weekend split against the Fighting Irish, it doesn’t appear very […]

Columbus, OH – For twenty seconds, Ohio State and Minnesota were tied in Saturday’s rubber match in Columbus. One early goal, and the Gophers never looked back. Buoyed by their fastest goal of the season, Minnesota (13-14-4 Overall, 10-9-3 B1G) swept the class of the Big Ten Ohio State Buckeyes (19-7-4, 12-5-3) to remain in second place in the Big Ten conference standings as the season comes to a close in just a few weekend’s time. […]
Columbus, OH – A week removed from a road sweep at the hands of Penn State, the Gophers faced another steep road test at the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. What a difference a few days makes. Relying on simple passing, timely scoring, and shutdown defense, the Minnesota Gophers (12-14-4 Overall, 9-9-3 B1G) took a first-period lead to the house, never looking back in a 4-3 victory over the highly-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (19-6-4, 12-4-3). […]

State College, PA – When Penn State visited Mariucci Arena in early January, the Gophers held the nation’s top offense to just five goals over two games. The Nittany Lions all but made up for that Friday evening in State College. Penn State’s offense erupted for seven goals against the normally-stingy Gophers (11-13-4 Overall, 8-8-3 B1G), driving stalwart Mat Robson to the bench after giving up three goals in the first period. The Nittany Lions […]
