Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

My zone 1 tickets dropped by $200/each. I'm pumped. I was on the fence about renewing (versus finding someone to split with or reducing number of seats). Now I think I'll probably keep thing as they are. I appreciate the University making this change. Same - just renewed what I've had in Section 19...

I would be more likely to go down to Mariucci if the first game wasn't two privates.
You missed an absolute fabulous hockey game. Nothing like being there in person!

I took some photos during that open house this past fall... I will gather them up in the next few days.
Initially, when the new locker room was just completed I know that photos were not allowed. Apparently now it's no problem at all....not sure when this was liberalized.

Re: Women's hockey

I really enjoyed the first two parts of the Homegrown doc series that FSN has shown. Last one airs next week. Check them out if you want to learn more about women’s hockey in Minnesota. A ton of information in there. I've only seen Episode 1 which I thought was extremely well done. Link below! http...

Wish this klutz could help you...

Re: #18 Gophers @ #11 Penn St. Feb 21 & 22

The PSU players always seemed to know where someone would be. We did a lot of throwing the puck somewhere hoping someone would be there. You have to admire their system, the way they're constantly moving and finding open lanes to make an uncontested pass. I especially like how they use their open D...

Re: Women's hockey

I thought the penalty was more iffy than totally unnecessary, but I'm also totally willing to defer to you on that one. Either way, the penalty was a disaster :censored: I would agree that it was unfortunate, as it occurred right after a blatant Badger trip that went uncalled. But in that situation...

Re: Women's hockey

Well I thought the Gophers would be able to claim a share of the WCHA regular season championship when UMD held a two goal lead with just two and a half minutes to play. Then the Bulldogs' Maggie Flaherty took a totally unnecessary roughing penalty to set the stage for a dramatic Wisconsin comeback ...

Do they have a 20 run rule?!
Not that it would have made much of a difference, but I did read that the Gophers left three of their top pitchers at home to prepare for their next series.
