Re: MN @ PSU... B1G Semi-Final

That about covers it... In addition, the last time the Gophers were in Happy Valley (about three weeks ago), they tied the Friday evening game 3 - 3 (losing the extra point in the 3 on 3 OT in the last 25 seconds). They led 3 -2 for about 2 minutes in the 3rd period. Their shooting % was 13% (to 6%...

Who is the fellow up at UNoDak who runs Monte Carlo simulations for predicting the places of teams for the final 16 NCAA Div I Men's Hockey?

And, is there someone on a Hockey forum who also runs Monte Carlo simulations?

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

Given the 4 - 6 - 2 record thus far, I'm thinking that with the schedule remaining before the Mariucci Classic and the continued improvement of all of the teams (including the Gophers) in that run, then the Gophers will probably be 4 - 12 - 2 going into the Classic . . . .

Prove me wrong, Gophers!
