    UMD 3 - UM 3 after regulation.

    The 'Dogs take the extra point in OT with a 2-1 result.

    Some positive results for the 'Dogs. The third period sounded like a bit of a canoe tipper with UM leading 1-0 and then increasing that lead by one before UMD finally scored. Have to wait for UM fans who attended to offer their input on the game.

    The Dogs ded a great job of bottling up the Gophers all night long. it looked like a close thing until MN scored to go up 2-1 early in the third & then the game suddenly opened up for both sides. In what has been a tired recently the Gophers looked tired in the third & I actually expected UMD to win 4-3. Frost mentioned last week that they have played every weekend since the season started & that is wearing. Apparently it is. It was a good game & UMD should be happy about the comeback and the win.

    UMD worked their butts off in the third period to come back and tie the game. It was very discouraging as a Gopher fan but the Bulldogs certainly earned it. The first two goals were odd man rushes. As in 4 (or 5) on 3. We had forwards who fell down in the offensive zone and they didn't get up and come back as fast as UMD transitioned en masse! With 4 Bulldogs coming in our d maybe got a little bit passive. Aggressive plays by UMD and it was pretty impressive and they made us pay.

    UMD 0 - UM 5 Final.

    A substantial beat down suffered by the 'Dogs today at the hands of UM. Disappointing after yesterday's positive result.

    Will again have to wait for UM fans for their take on the game.

    The Bulldogs looked as good tonight as they did last night. I saw 2 differences, the Gopher D was much more solid and they also moved the puck better. It was not a 5-0 game.

    We got to meet your new coach today and she is very impressive. I think UMDs future is definitely looking up.

    Have to disagree with you a bit here. From my vantage point none of the Gophers' 5 goals was fluky in any way, and Peters stopped all the shots she would be expected to stop. After racing to a 3 goal lead in the 1st and surviving a few brief flourishes the rest of the way I thought the Gophers' lead was never in question and the outcome was never in doubt.

    With the exception of the 3rd on Friday I didn't think Saturday looked much different. The improvement on the MN side were small, though critical, and a couple of pucks that just missed on Friday just made it on Saturday. It didn't look to me like the Gophers owned the Bulldogs but they did control the game. To put it another way, if you watched a 5 minute clip of any part of the first 2 periods you would not have said "Oh, this is a 5-0 game for sure!"

    Yeah, I think Saturday the Gophers had a lethal combination of puck luck and stellar offensive plays. To me, UMD played pretty good hockey both days and in the last 5 minutes Friday just exerted their will and pushed the Gophers over and Minnesota did not resist good enough.

    IMO, when UMD rallied in the third period on Friday, they did so by playing a more aggressive style after concentrating on shutting Minnesota down for the first couple of periods. As the first period went along yesterday, I thought that the game became more wide open as it did late on Friday. Both teams likely wanted to play an up-tempo style; their coaches would have preferred something more conservative. On Friday, the Bulldogs got the transition goals. Yesterday, the Gophers did. UMD had chances in the first couple of periods, but it looked to me like they either put their shots wide of the net or into Peters' midsection.

    Ironically, I thought that special teams play was closer yesterday; on Friday, Minnesota dominated, even though the goal count wouldn't show it, because UMD scored on its only real chance. I'd say that the Bulldogs' PK is one area where they need to improve, because the Gophers had free reign on the PP for long stretches.

    All this talk about puck luck is BS, all you have to do is listen to what their coach said: ““You generate four shots and miss the net five times, you don’t really get at the goalie, you don’t win games with puck possession. And then they take advantage of their opportunities; credit them with some beautiful goals.”
    Absolutely, all five were pretty goals, highlight film worthy. I would say that the game was fairly evenly played, except where it really counts. Is luck generated by the individual or does it fall in your lap? It doesn’t matter, what you do with it is what matters.

    I expect the dogs have a pretty bright future. They have 10 frosh and that might explain a lot of the uneven play. The old days of the WCHA being a 3 team, then a 2 team league are going to be gone. Assuming the conditions I see now continue it is going to be a 4 team league with the occasional run by the other 3. That means some painful losses and snubs from the NCAA but the seasons will be a lot more exciting.

I'd be happy to see them show improvement in WCHA in second half and be one of the top 4 in WCHA for 2018 games--looking forward to some good battles in maroon gold yet this year. Let's not write off this entire year yet for some great hockey.
    I think 4 teams have shown either vast improvement the last couple of years or continued dominance. I don't doubt for a minute that the other 3 will impact the ordering of the top 4 but, at least for the last couple of seasons, those 4 have made a statement. Yeah, there will be some great games and it does not lessen the fact that teams will have great seasons but not get to the NCAA tourney. There could easily be 4 WCHA teams with a serious shot at the final trophy and that is exciting. That at least 3 won't win it in any given year does not mean they won't have great seasons and be part of fabulous games

    BSU 0 - UMD 0 after one. SOG: BSU 13 - UMD 12

    The Beavs and the 'Dogs attempt to rearrange the dust on the basement stairs of the WCHA tonight at Amsoil in a somewhat surprisingly (to me) entertaining and action packed game, so far.

    Other than the first 2 minutes when BSU kept the puck hemmed in the UMD end it has been pretty much end to end.

    Convery has made 3 or 4 extremely good saves and at least one great save to keep the 'Dogs even.

    BSU almost got a freebee when a shot had Convery going to her right but Daoust got her stick into the action and quickly deflected it right towards the net to Convery's left. The post came to her aid.

    This is a vastly "improved" offense for BSU from what I last remember in the last few years. The game is wide open instead of the grind that BSU usually bestows on opponents. Then again, maybe they had no choice, not having been offensively endowed.

    BSU 1 - UMD 2 after two.

    Extremely fast game.

    Reilly with her first goal as a Bulldog crashing the net with the pass from Bell going in off her skate...reviewed at length but referee approved. Strange goal to watch.

    Then Healy with a bounced puck that came to her through traffic as she was waiting, stick loaded, on the back stoop...only a few seconds into their first power play of the night.

    Then BSU wouldn't let UMD close out the last couple of minutes of the period on a winning note and bagged a deceptively nice one right in the crease with only 34 seconds left in the period.

    Convery is making a statement in goal for UMD tonight...having a great game.

    Early in the period the 'Dog defenders were scaring no one except their own team mates handing the puck to BSU on a few occasions in front of their own goal.

    The new play by play guy is injecting a lot of excitement into an already exciting game.

    BSU 5 - UMD 3 final.

    It was a wild affair with BSU bagging 4 goals (including an empty netter) in the 3rd period.

    Missed the first half of the period and BSU's tying goal.

    So much for Convery's statement in the first two periods but she didn't get too much help from her defense tonight.

    Some great goals including a blast from Healy from the left face off circle immediately off the face off on the other side from Mrazova to Houston with a nice quick pass to Healy who cranked it one time.

    With the extra attacker UMD looked disorganized and couldn't control the puck and Rodgers was leaking major oil allowing the BSU puck carrier to easily pull away from her to score the EN.

    Very disappointing third period for the 'Dogs but they did not quit.

    Very impressed with BSU. This is the best game that I can ever recall seeing them play. Well deserved win.

    Great game.
