    Count the goal. Brad Shepherd did the same thing in the 2004 WCHA Final, when Jody Horak was skating to bench because the arm went up while the Gophers were skating with the puck and stayed up -- even after UMD got the puck and put it into the empty net.

    I have discovered over the years that what I hope for has very little to do with what ends up happening. But I will do my best.

    Was there ever an explanation for what happened ? I still remember that stupid call.

    The only really disappointing part of the game was that it was never close and the outcome was not in doubt early. Wisconsin played as well as any team we have seen and the Gophers never got out of the starting blocks.

    Closest they came to getting a goal was when Baldwin tried to tip a loose puck in the crease but Peters made a great save to deny Wisconsin a freebie.

    Still hoping for an all WCHA final next Sunday

    It wasn't the only time he did that to the Gophs, just the only time that a goal resulted. I think there were just too many moving parts for the young Shepherd to keep track.

    Young Brad did tend to lose track of a "sheep" now and then, but I seem to remember the other Shephard's losing sight of entire flocks.

    About a dozen Gopher fans and one very happy Badger fan watched the game in a room at Joe Sensor's (with audio no less) and the common reaction to the penalty call was, "What the .... just happened there?"

    That was just unbelievable. If it had been a closer game, it might have made a difference. What if the Gophers had pulled the goalie?

    Gophers with one (1) SOG in the third period. I think they used up all their reserves of energy last week.

    I don't want to dwell on it, but this game reminded me of the 8-2 shellacking they took in Madison last season. We were never really in it and Wisconsin was in total control from the beginning.

    If they had pulled Peters WI would have scored again. They were never in control of the game at any time. Even on the PP they could not hold the zone of rany useful length of time.

    I think MN had to win last week & Wi did not. Both teams played like it. This week both teams needed to win & WI played better.

    It went beyond the bosses kid though. The linesman signaled to Horak.
