    If anyone is going to risk paying for BSU video today...could you post on whether the issue has been corrected?

    I think I'm going to risk it

    The response I got from Stretch yesterday during the game said the event was currently "unavailable" (even though I was watching it, so to speak). I read that to mean they were no longer selling it to new customers. Maybe they won't make it available unless it's fixed, who knows? At any rate, I'll post what I find out.

    I wonder if this happens for the men's games on Stretch also. Or if they're skimping on the women's games to the point where we get a weekend like this at $7.95 per game.

    Gophers get their rematches with Bemidji next month! That's kind of weird.

    We had our best scoring chances shorthanded. We can fix that by November.

    Goaltending isn't this team's only problem. There were too many times that defensemen reached for the puck with their stick and were then flat-footed when a Bulldog won the battle. There seem to be some issues with forwards releasing opponents skating into the slot without a defenseman picking them up. And there were a couple of really bad penalties tonight.

    The goaltending is the biggest issue, though. At least two of tonight's goals were really soft; I thought Peters should have had the third as well, though my look at it wasn't great and I could be convinced otherwise. Her body language over the last seven minutes of the second period was awful; she seemed to look behind herself every time Duluth wound up. I was surprised to see her play the third period, to be honest. The rest of the team helped out by playing a tremendous period, limiting the Dogs to four shots, and UMD helped some by missing the night on a couple of good scoring chances.

    We've got some work to do.

    Let her play bit and gain some confidence. She was a spectator for 3 years and needs to get into a groove which is not easy when you are on a top team. She will be fine as will the rest of the team.

    That one hit a Gopher and changed direction. IMO, the PK was giving up two many great looks in the second, and Peters was doing more to keep the puck out of the net during that stretch than the most of them.

    The fans especially. They don't cheer unless the team scores. Spoiled, I guess.

    I agree with what you say.

    After seven seasons of extremely high quality goaltending the Gophers have finally rediscovered the anxiety of having an unproven goaler.

    There were lots of times tonight when I thought Peters made really good plays, lots and lots of flashes of good.

    But the other was there for everyone to see.

    I think coach said she has earned the right to be there at the start of this season. The freshman would have to have been Räty-esque for there be any other choice than to give the four years in the program goaltender the first shot. Serena is apparently not Nora. Sidney has earned her shot.

    I think Peters has to start being better immediately to retain her spot. She probably knows that as well as anyone.

    The team has three D back who played substantial minutes last season. Stecklein continues to be routinely all-World. We are really going to miss Wolfe when she is gone. Baldwin is going to inherit the mantle of senior D and she looks like she is going to be everything that Gopher fans want from that person. The two other returning D are both taking a step up from what was expected of them last year. Last year Cline was mostly the 6th D on a team that mostly played only 5. This season she has to play and to me, at least so far, she has taken a giant step. She is a senior and is playing like a senior, I am comfortable with Cline on the ice. Skarzynski missed that first weekend and seems a little behind but I am comfortable with Skarzynski on the ice. Both of those returning players are stepping up. That leaves Marshall the frosh D and I think most of us are happy with her play.

    I think the talent level of the Gopher forwards is plenty high enough, what is missing so far is the continuity of having had a couple of dozen games playing together. I think the talent is there. I said this before but those two freshman forwards are keepers.

    WAY too many penalties.

    I agree on the first two, on the third I thought it was just one of those puck hits something in front and then just sort of jumps over her right shoulder.

    I still think it is her job and I still think there is room for her to prove that she is the one.

    Hey, the Gophers won the game.

    Hey, I'm trying. It's hard to do much sitting at one end of the ice. But I even had to start cheers to get the band going tonight during the action, and they have the youth that I'm starting to lose.

    I did get several odd looks when I "asked" Rick (the PA announcer) how much time was left at the end of the 2nd period, because I wasn't in my normal seating area. Rather, I was near center ice at that point, because I was on my way to the booster club table to get it set up before the intermission.
