After reviewing their record, this should be 2 easy wins.
Do ya really want to say that? Not saying we're gonna kick your butts, but that sort of talk can come back to bite ya.

No, Call It didn't mean to say that! :confused: This year it's not wise to reference Minnesota + "easy wins" in the same sentence.

I think most of us Minnesota fans would not agree with call it's statement. I don't think it will be "2 easy wins", the Gophers will have to play hard and earn any wins they get out in Vermont. College Hockey has way too much parity these days to call anything a sure win, let alone 2 on the road.

Well, CallIt did say "should be" and they are definitely right about that. It should be 2 easy wins. I don't think it will be, especially given the results of the past few weeks in dropping a game or two here and there and a couple of ties with sub-par teams. But it should be.

Scooby - We have gone 2-0-2 since the loss at Kato, you need to adjust the glass. :)

We all knew Scooby's rose colored glasses would be shattered sooner or later. :)

It would take quite a run to get that beginning of the season Scooby back again...

Edit: Thanks for updating, Scooby, I feel better. :)

I also said that they played us tough last year. We did split with UVM, but that was last year. From the UVM Thread, their rink is a tough place to play. Perhaps a split, but I wouldn't bet on it!:)

Hope the players are more pumped for this series than the fans are here! :confused:

Anyone know if Warning will be back in the lineup?

Warning will not be in the lineup.

I'm sure the players will be fired up to go play out East in an arena they have never played in before.

Thanks for the info. I do hope he makes a full recovery from whatever his ailment might be.

I hope they show them Eastern boys what Gopher hockey is all about! :cool:

Review/preview from Gophersports: http://www.gophersports.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/112112aaa.html



The No. 4 Minnesota men's hockey team makes its first-ever trip to Vermont this weekend for a two-game nonconference series with the Catamounts in Burlington. After splitting the first-ever meeting between the two teams last year at Mariucci Arena, the Gophers (7-2-2 overall, 4-2-2 WCHA) look to stay perfect in nonconference play this season after picking up a pair of wins over Michigan State (CCHA) and edging Canisius (AHA) earlier this year. Vermont (2-5-2, 2-5-2 Hockey East) will get its first taste of nonconference play this season when the Gophers arrive in town. The Catamounts have a short week to prepare for the weekend's series after falling to UMass 3-1 on Tuesday in Amherst.

Gophers Against Hockey East

While the Gophers are 1-1-0 all-time against the Catamounts, Minnesota has had great success in general against teams that call Hockey East home. The Gophers are 82-50-7 all-time against the confernece. In addition to two games against Vermont last season, the Gophers also met a pair of Hockey East teams in the NCAA tournament -- topping Boston University 7-3 on March 24 in route to the NCAA West Regional title and falling 6-1 to eventual national champion and current No. 1 Boston College in a Frozen Four semifinal matchup.

Rare Trip Out East

This weekend's series in Vermont marks Minnesota's first regular-season road trip to the east coast since the 2004-05 season. The Gophers split a pair of 2-1 games with Boston University on 1/2-3/05 and have only returned to the east coast on two occasions since -- the 2008 NCAA West Regional in Worcester, Mass., and the 2012 NCAA Frozen Four in Tampa, Fla.

This was one of the trips I wished I could have made this year and had it in the back of my head, but we traveled a lot this summer (far more than normal) and it was not in the cards. Seems like a decent set of fans that would welcome visitors and obviously a beatiful area to visit.

Go Gophers!!

True for the most part

Possibly, but they should sent out flyers or something to prepare them. They deserve to know.
