Gophers at ugly helmets Nov 8-9

Post by Cowgirl » Mon Nov 04 11:04 pm

The Maroon and Gold travel to the sardine can that is Yost this weekend.

Predictions?

Who starts in goal? Does it give us (or them) an advantage to have a goalie who played there for a couple years?

Anyone else traveling to Ann Arbor? (I hear she’s kind of a wh*re)

Don’t forget the wonky start times (5:30 Friday, 4:00 Saturday) for those of you who will be in CST.

Looking forward to a great weekend of Gopher Hockey!

GO GOPHERS!!! :M: :M2: :M: :M2: :M: :M2:

Oddly this is probably the easiest series of the month.

Less than a split and the hole is starting to grow way too quickly.

I could see LaFontaine getting the start Friday.

Even a split might be bad depending on how good Michigan ends up being this year (not projected to be a playoff team I don't think).
<GophDogFan> yep, so sad... you have a new moment, when your uncle gets mad because you got the best of him. the last straw was when i told him that UND's hockey program is like crystal pepsi: Nobody every liked it.

Need to find that elusive road sweep.
I actually thought they played Notre Dame well excluding the 3rd period Saturday. And I think Notre Dame will be a good team when the year unfolds (i.e. I don't think their ranking is inflated).

We'll see, I feel better about Michigan on the road then I did about ND at home.

I haven't checked the record, but it seems like Minnesota has had some collapses at Yost these past several years...coming up on the short end of high scoring games.

He put up a lot of points with USNTDP, but I haven't seen it in my limited sample size of BTN Michigan games so far. Seems like Johnson and LaCombe have transitioned smoother from my perspective.

Here are some notes from The Athletic on York—maybe I just need more viewings to appreciate what he does well?

“There’s not a lot of high risk to his game, but there’s certainly a lot of reward, whether it’s himself or the guys on the ice, whether it’s his outlets out of the D-zone, his transition game, his decision-making through the neutral zone or the offensive zone. He’s got a high skill level: his skating, his sense, his ability to make plays with the puck. I just think he does it at a very, very efficient rate. Maybe some don’t appreciate that as much as I do.”

Well, my sister and future husband decided to get married on a Friday during the season, though fortunately for me it's an away weekend. Please can we be ahead by the time the wedding ceremony starts?

When I introduce myself at the reception, I'm planning on making a joke about being distracted by interrupting it with a goal announcement, so hopefully there's a real Gopher goal I can use when I do.

Not expecting a road win. Young team, on the road in a new arena, last game I thought the defense was soft. If they can hold the offensive zone and stay with them into the third period, get out of our zone that would be great. A win would be awesome and is beyond expectations.

This is a team that needs some time to get settled into games like this. Goal is to make it through the first 10-15 without getting down.

Looked like a feeling out period. The Gophers were far from sharp but the difference in play wasn't 7-0 SOG at that point. The Gophers couldn't make back to back passes and were playing hot potato.with the puck. Thank goodness they kept it level.

Clymer is better this year, but stop taking about the NHL. One of my biggest pet peeve things that he does.

So much better so far this period. Still just a tad bit out of sorts in the O zone, but for the youngest team in the country (as per the announcers) to not have the defense be the shortfall so far could be a sign of good things to come.

Me neither
Working now.

Clymer keeps comparing lacombe to Quinn Hughes... he did it earlier in the year as well. I like lacombe alright, but he sure isn’t Quinn Hughes... am I wrong?
However, Ryan Johnson is the best D on the team and our most promising freshman D for a long time. Reminds me a bit of Paul Martin
Johnson is an excellent skater and yes, our best defenseman in my opinion.

Agreed, seems faster and his offensive mind should help with the scoring, ideally. Wasn't too impressed for most of last year but seems to have taken a step in the offseason

The refs have been terrible in the 3rd, but the Gophers have not helped themselves. I really hoped the 2nd would propel them to step on UMi;s throat but this has been awful.

This last sequence in their own end was about as horrible as you can get. Giving pucks up to the other team in the slot twice. Now taking another penalty.
