    BSU 1 - UMD 2 after one.

    Another balzingly fast game...end to end action. And maybe another shootout at the OK Corral.

    BSU scored first and early but the 'Dogs notched 2 power play goals to take the lead.

    Convery stopped a BSU breakaway that threatened to tie the game.

    And UMD has really cranked up the coverage from Amsoil. Exciting play by play calling and live intermission interviews with video in addition to the previous audio only...and done by someone who seems motivated and excited to be doing what she's doing.

    Nice change.

    BSU 2 - UMD 3 after two.

    UMD was 5 for 5 on the power play so far in this series and are working on the end of their 6th as the third period starts but will only have a scant 11 seconds or so left.

    Seriously entertaining hockey.

    BSU 2 - UMD 3 Final. SOG BSU 33 - UMD 36

    The 'Dogs hang on to get the split.

    Excellent effort from both teams for two full games.

    UMD needs to work on getting the puck out of their own end. Mindlessly/robotically trying to clear the puck up along the boards where all the bodies are when you have enough time instead of shooting it out through unobstructed ice just doesn't seem optimal...especially when you do it repeatedly and it keeps failing repeatedly and the game is on the line. They gave BSU way more opportunities to tie the game up late, hemmed in their own end by their own mistakes that they shouldn't be making at D1, than they otherwise would have had. There's a simple fix...just think.

    That said extremely impressive energy exerted for both games.

    If they can bring that level of energy to the rest of their games this season their opponents are going to have problems that may not be solvable.

    Same can be said of BSU.

    UMD 2 - SCSU 3 final.

    This result is a rather large disappointment after how the 'Dogs played last weekend.

    They tied the game up with about 3-4 minutes left in regulation only to have SCSU score less than a minute later to regain the lead and claim the victory.

    UMD 1- SCSU 1 final.

    Strikes me as a botched weekend for UMD.

    The Friday game was a conference game, but today wasn't? And then they play again on Wed the 31st, and that one IS a conference game!

    What the fudge?!?

    Today's game was a part of Hockey Day Minnesota and was played outdoors. For whatever reason, they decided that this was the game that they didn't want to be a conference game.

    Yeah, I was aware that one was not a conference game but I still think that they botched the weekend.

    Just watched Sat since I recorded broadcast. From what I read Fri was a botch. I disagree about Saturday. They need to work on offense, sure, but it looked like a great experience all around for Hockey Day. Great to see MN kids -Johnson in goal, she played the puck and had a great game.

    It really did look like a great experience for those two teams on Saturday!

    If the 'Dogs skate like they did two weeks ago (didn't see last weekend's games) then they will give OSU a major headache today and tomorrow...maybe even a migraine.

    And if their goaltending is solid then maybe even some points are possible.

    Here's hoping.

    Points are definitely possible!

    Re: UMD 2017 Season Thread

    In the first period:
    Yanko missed a wide open opportunity right in front of the net. Backhand was there, she didn't have confidence in her backhand and didn't try it.
    Rogge (I think) hit crossbar.
    Convery makes huge glove save on Boyle point blank.
    Another huge save by Convery with seconds remaining.

    UMD had some good chances early. Ohio State looked more and more dangerous as the period went on.

    OSU 0 - UMD 1 SOG: about even around 10-12

    You beat me to it...

    The 'Dogs made the 'Eyes blink in the first 10 minutes and were all over them like white on rice.

    It could have easily been 3-0 but as you said Yanko choked a tremendous opportunity only 20 seconds after the first goal...would have been a tremendous confidence builder...and then Rogge did hit the crossbar. (Rogge and Bell are becoming quite impressive playing together).

    Lots of quick, crisp beautiful passing by UMD...not as fast a game as those 2 weeks ago but approaching it...I'm impressed with the effort.

    Could see on the OSU PP this is a vastly improved team from a couple years ago...vastly.

    The second 10 minutes did see UMD lose the advantage in play to a more balanced flow as the last half of the period unfolded.

    And yes, great save by Convery at the buzzer.

    OSU had 2 good opportunities both late in the period while UMD had several including the 2 on 1 that didn't work out.

    Very entertaining so far and good hockey.

    2-1 ppg by UMD.

    Sad to see so many empty seats.
