    It seems to me that given the success of past goalies, it could be said any Gopher goalie is questionable until they have won a national championship.
    No?
    I’d be willing to bet the present goalies, and for that matter future goalies, don’t come here to set the save, shutout, or win record, they come here for the opportunity to test and prove themselves in a national championship game. I’m sure D’Angelo and May could have found a school where they could be starting if that were their goal, and Peters wouldn’t have had to sit for three years before getting her chance to be the number one goalie.
    The job of a goalie is simply to give up fewer goals than the opposing goalie. No more, no less. Of course they want to stop them all, but realistically that isn’t going to happen. Dwelling about how many goals, or on who is to blame, and which ones should have been stopped is counterproductive. Successful goalies concentrate on stopping the next one.
    The game Saturday against UMD was Peter’s biggest game to date. Should she have stopped the two goals? It doesn’t matter, what is important is that after falling behind she shut the door and gave the Gophers a chance to win. During overtime she stopped what was thrown at her, you can’t ask for anything more than that. Even the Bemidji loss, after the first goal she shut the door and gave the Gophers a chance to win.
    Last year Leveille looked “questionable” early in the season but in the second half seemed to get sharper as each week passed. It doesn’t matter if you beat Mankato 2-1 or 4-0, or beat UMD 4-3 or 6-0, or even fail to give up fewer goals than the opposition and lose. Given the quality of other goaltenders and skaters, there are likely to be bumps along the way. For a goalie the goal is to make it to the championship game, and ultimately win it. If they do that, how they got there doesn’t matter.

    Case in point to what Pokechecker is saying is the WisconSIN goalie last year. Outside of the so called "flu" excuse, one heck of a statistical season that came down to needing to make a save against Sara Potomak and not making it. So when it is all said and done, she had an incredible season with amazing stats but...

    My 7th grade teacher Miss Searle would have said people that don't cross the t and dot the i are just being lazy.

    On the goalie front, I'm sure Peters would say she should have stopped the one puck shot from such a sharp angle. It reminded me of the goal Leveille gave up to Edney of Harvard in the championship game two years ago. On the whole I think Peters has played very well this year and has made some big saves.

    Except for maybe a glitch or two I think Kelsey Cline has also played well on defense. It's going to be fun to watch this team grow this year.

    Unless I missed it I don't believe anyone has extended their congrats to our Sarah Potomak for being named the league's Offensive Player of the Week. I guess scoring the winning goal in both of the one-goal wins over Minnesota-Duluth was enough!

    Nadine Muzerall-I think this is her first pregame press meeting:

    http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/spo...102016aaa.html

    I'll put it in the Gopher thread since they are playing Minnesota and since it's her first one she's still a little bit in transition!

    I do wish that people recording a press conference would manage to get the questions as well as the answers.

    It takes people passing microphones around to do that. It seemed like Muzzy had trouble hearing some of the questions, so there was likely some distance between her (and her microphone) and the media members in attendance. Overall, one could get the crux of most of these questions and I thought it was better than most.

    That is as relaxed as I have ever seen her, I think that is great for her and the team maybe not so great for the Gophers - I'd rather see was up tight about this weekend

    Mark Johnson's pressers are flawless, just as I am sure Frosty's are, though I'll never watch one of his. Muzzy's was interesting. She showed quite a bit of personality. Johnson's usually pretty dry.

    Mark Johnson really IS dry in his press conferences. But I remember season before last just before he went to Lake Placid or just after he returned from an '80 Olympic team reunion lot of that dryness went away. He got really energized and animated (by MJ standards) as he was talking about it. I thought it was really cool to see!

    I have heard rumors that it isn't always necessary to score goals late in the third in order to win

    I have to imagine he's more animated with the players in private. I have seen him get animated with refs between periods or before games, but it's a stern 1 way conversation.

    I have this weird feeling that I want you guys to bury OSU today. The big dogs need to keep the doormats on the floor.

    Might be too late; the dogs from Duluth seem to have already gotten up off the floor.

    Personally I welcome more parity, as long as the Gophers manage to keep winning the close ones!

    Another 1 goal game. Still have a lot of work to do. It would be nice to not give up the first goal in a game.

    And it would be nice to get more balanced offensive production. Without the Pannek-Potomak combination our record to date would not be nearly what it is. Getting plenty of shots - well over 50 today - but having a very hard time putting the puck in the net. As you say they have work to do.

    57 shots and only two goals? I have to wonder if that's accurate. I mean how do they count shots, are they quite liberal?

    Ohio State scored on their 5th SOG yesterday. That might be the highest number since Lindenwood.
    The freshmen are looking good. For early in their first season, Agnew and Woken look solid to me and like they will be able to score their share this season. Patti Marshall has been given a lot of responsibility early and is off to a good start.
    13 of 24 goals by the first line and 18 of 43 assists.
    It'll be nice when the second line gets untracked and starts making more of a contribution offensively.
