Re: NHL 2020-21 season

If Montreal would have held on and won game four I would have favored them to win the series. Maybe in six? But with how momentum has shifted in favor of Vegas and the way the Islanders were just completely demolished last night I think a Vegas vs Tampa final is most likely. Selfishly I’m not thrill...

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

I've said it before but I would hate to be the person that runs the Gopher Men's Hockey social media accounts. People are losing their minds over a picture. I think it's kind of funny and represents the season well. I'm sure they took another one without masks and either way, who cares?

Re: 2020-2021 Schedule

So I know this has been brought up already but is there really no way the Gophers can find someone to play next weekend? I guess the break might be a good thing for resting some players but it's too bad we have to go two weeks without Gopher Hockey

Re: NCAA Hockey 2020-2021 Season

But, but, but....it's the best college hockey conference! Hands down! All of the teams are so good and they just beat up on each other the whole season. It's not fair! You wouldn't understand, the Big Ten sucks. The NCHC is the best college hockey conference. It's a good conference with some good t...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2020-2021 Season

AHA 1 ECAC 1, maybe 2 WCHA Mankato plus 1 HE 3 NCHC 4 B1G 3 That leaves 1 remaining slot somewhere, best bet being NCHC AHA 1 ECAC Qpac or 2 if Qpac doesn't win WCHA 2 or 3 HE 3 or 4 NCHC 4 BIG 3 Not sure why "best bet" would be NCHC for a 5th spot. They have 4 teams above .500. But, but, but....it...

Re: 2020-2021 Schedule

We basically need to win out and Notre Dame to do us a huge favor. I'm not even going to contemplate the idea of OSU or MSU helping us out.

Re: 2020-2021 Schedule

We should do what North Carolina basketball did this week, post on Twitter, “who wants to play against us?”.... And then got a game immediately. That'd be great but who would be available to play us? Not trying to be smart, I'm genuinely asking would there be anyone in conference or a regional team...

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

Gophers climb back to #4 in the polls leapfrogging WI again. Interesting that in 5 losses, they've only lost to 2 teams. Just two really bad weekends where they seemed to take the weekend off. Really hope we meet Wisconsin in the B1G tourney and get a chance for revenge. I don't think they're bette...

If you feel like watching a fun hockey game Michigan v Wisconsin is on BTN. Good end to end game. Michigan is up 4-1 after 2.

Re: Gophs @ Irish 2/12 - 2/13

Really need a sweep. The way Wisconsin is playing we basically need to win out to win the conference. It'd be a damn shame to watch Wisconsin go and win the conference after how great we started this season

Re: #2 Gophers vs #11 BADgers (Feb 5 & 6)

I thought splitting in Madison and getting swept by Notre Dame was going to be a wake up call and that'd be the turn around they need. I thought we would probably split this weekend. I did not think this would happen. This is absolutely embarrassing. Hopefully they can bounce back next weekend but t...

The BADgers just look better than us in every facet of the game. I missed the goals four and 5. How bad were they?

Re: #2 Gophers vs #11 BADgers (Feb 5 & 6)

Gotten to that point in the day (actually it was more like 5 hours ago) where I am completely distracted from work due to the excitement of this series. It's unfortunate we can't go because the atmosphere would be bonkers but still, I don't think I've been this excited going into a series since agai...

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

Depending on how the rest of the season goes the Minnesota-Michigan series could give this past game a run for its money if they air it on BTN. Which they really should. With what could potentially be at stake and bringing in viewers from both the Michigan and Minnesota fan bases they'd be foolish n...

Re: The unspeakable evil from the east pollutes our fair state

Things I'd like to see this weekend: 1. The same kind of tenacity and pressure we saw this past weekend, especially night 1. 2. Let's shut down Cole Caulfield and shut up that Badger fan base. 3. Ryan Johnson score his first collegiate goal. 4. Meyers get a goal or two. 5. Bryce get another crack at...
