    It seems also most of our SOG in the first were in the latter part of the period. I think we played much better later in the first than at the start of the game.

    Putting a wrap on the Gopher's 1-0 quarterfinal win, Brad Frost's comments on the game-winning goal:

    “I don’t know if anybody else in the country makes that play other than Kelly Pannek,” he said. “You talk about what separates Kelly from every other player in the country and it’s the vision that you saw right there.”

    The Gophers have been in a scoring drought, but Marshall didn’t miss that one.

    “For Patti to see it, get in the right spot, and then to finish — 90 percent of the time, that hits a player’s stick and goes into the corner because they’re not strong enough on their stick,” Frost said. “And she just buried it. It was just a phenomenal play.”

    Now if we can just get a few more of those phenomenal plays this weekend....

    Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy for our players and that we won. It's just the contrast between our players and the UMD players is devastating.

    The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat! It's starkly there in that contrast.

    Looked like a real crappy visitor's locker-room from what you can see in the video. Just an observation.

    Also, yeah, wow, that's a lousy locker room, especially considering how new the building is - but the "Fly the W" was pretty amusing.

    I'm wondering if that could be the visitor's locker room since the Gophers were the lower seed? I believe the Gopher's locker room was remodeled fairly recently.

    Not being a regular follower of the Cubs, I had to look up the origin of "Fly The W." Great video.

    Had a tour of the facilities and it was state of the art although I can't recall the visitors' dressing room but I don't recall thinking it was shabby.

    You should see The 'Dogs' dressing room...absolutely gorgeous and extremely functional incorporating a facility for socializing/lounging down the hall as well. (Not that anyone on these teams has much time for lounging).

    In the end, it was a pretty good season. I'd love to know how it would have played out without the rash of injuries in the middle. Tonight was a shame, but you aren't going to reach the final every year. They certainly went farther than I thought they would in January.

    So, until next year, go Bucky.

    Certainly disappointed by tonights result but really not unexpected considering they had many of the issues seen in this game during the year. Seemingly had shaken at least some of them but ultimately just not good enough to get back to the title game. Given that they had been in the previous 5 title games, I can't be too disappointed.

    Looking ahead to next year, They will get some much needed talent added to the forward group and improved competition in goal. They also add two very good defenders but losing Stecklein... they have no answer for that.

    I'll just sit back and watch. The Clarkson fans on here have always conducted themselves with class, so I'm not going to root against them. May the better team on Sunday win.

    I seem to remember a few comments on the fan forum from the usual suspects berating the Gophers for being the first WCHA team to lose the championship to an eastern school, so it would be funny if.... Oh, never mind, may the best team win and the rink solid ice with no lifeguards needed.

    On that I can agree...Still would rather see a WCHA team win the title for the east/west thing.
